The Lamington Wreath Is The Easy Aussie Dessert Sweeping Social Media
We've never met a lamington we didn't like which is why a whole wreath of them is the perfect festive dessert.
Following on from the wildly popular pavlova station, another take on a prominent Australian dessert is gaining momentum on social media: the lamington wreath.
The best part is it involves no baking and is highly cost effective, likely to set you back $20 or less for an entire dessert. Winning.
The time saving hack is cropping up in a variety of Australian-based Facebook groups, with many marvelling at the ease involved in making it and sharing photos of their efforts.
The Beyond The Picket Fence Facebook page states "anyone looking for a simple but impressively looking desert for Christmas" can't go past a lamington finger wreath.
All you need is:
- Packets of lamington fingers
- Whipped cream
"Join the lamington fingers with whipped cream in the shape of a wreath," the instructions read. "Top with chopped and whole strawberries and cherries."
"Other fruits would look lovely too: raspberries, blue berries, black berries and some fresh mint leaves."
A number of Facebook users have been fans of the easy hack, with many sharing their own versions of the simple dessert.
"Looks good, l do a pav in the shape of a wreath with heaps berries on the top and sprigs of mint," wrote one.
"It looks delicious! I might try making it with a bit of booze in it," added another.
We have a feeling lamington wreaths are going to appear on a few family tables come Christmas.
