    Chrissyo's Note:

    That secret of a good Lamington is to make the cake mixture from scratch.

      This review is only for the icing, which turned out beautifully. I did, however, end up having to heat the icing in a bowl over simmering water to completely melt the sugar and get rid of all lumps, and I returned the bowl to the simmering water whenever the icing seemed to thicken too much (maybe I'm just slow at coating the cake squares.) * I did attempt the cake recipe, but will not rate, because I was under the impression I could substitute extra fine ground corn meal for the cornflour. The result was a very good cake-like cornbread that was unsuitable for lamingtons. I now assume that cornflour is corn starch in the US???
