Any type of plain cake can be used for these lamingtons - sponge cake, pound cake or Madeira cake. Ideally, make the cake the day before for best results, but the important thing is that the cake is completely cooled before icing.
Was disapointed with this one, my cake was a flop, it didnt rise well and i couldnt use the cake in the end because it was way too dense and not at all fluffy like a lamington should be. It went in the bin. I have no idea what went wrong but im not happy with all the food i just wasted cooking it. - 29 Mar 2010
