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
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries

"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."

The Pavlova Grazing Board Is The New Trend You Need To Get Onto This Christmas

We've never met a person that doesn't love a good cheese board, but if social media is anything to go by, it seems like pavlova boards are going to be a big hit this year.

"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.
