Ideas for an Aussie themed bake sale.
« on: January 16, 2013, 04:00:11 am »
Hi all :D

I have been asked to do some baking for a charity bake sale on the weekend before Australia day. They've asked for a few Aussie themed goodies, but all I've come up with are lamingtons, ANZAC biscuits, and cheese and vegemite scrolls.

Any other ideas please?

TIA :-*

Pumpkin scones, vanilla slice ( if you can keep it cold ) or maybe coconut ice.

Cake pops using Tim Tams.

DD made some Donna Hay lamington muffins on the weekend and they had jam in the centre. Very nice indeed. The recipe was in last Sunday's ;magazine.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I am going to make lamingtons for BBQ on weekend. Think I will try the recipe community one referred to in another thread on this forum.
