It's probably easier to make Lamingtons out of a sheet of sponge which I have done when cutting them into their traditional squares. However, these are going to be slightly experimental ones and I'd like them circular. So, in this case it's better to make your sponge in cupcake cases and then neaten the shape with a cutter because then you can get the perfect sponge! 

You should really make a chocolate icing but I wanted to make one with fresh fruit. So I whizzed up some blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Then I whisked in some icing sugar, but you want quite a runny consistency for dipping! 

I cut the sponge in half and spread one side with raspberry jam and the other with buttercream (this is also not the done thing, but tastes better!) 

Then, once sandwiched together I gave them a good dunk and soak in the icing and then coated in desiccated coconut. These are pretty sweet but pretty yummy and something a bit different!
