Cake-Off Challenge: Giant Lamington Trifle

The first cake to be tasted and tested in Round 2 of the 2010 Christmas Cake-Off Challenge was Kat’s Giant Lamington Trifles. In her own words, “They were bigger in my mind.” Based on the Lamington sponge, which is quite Kiwi, and the trifle, which is quite Christmassy, it seemed appropriate to combine the two ideas with the aid of much jelly and custard, careful layering and some freezer fun-times.

Guest Judge, Lord Forrester of Governor’s Bay, had this to say about the creation:

Sponge light, delicious and fluffy. A fresh fruit burst, with a bit of freeze from the jelly. An interesting twist on the usually dull Lamington – very nice.

Other comments from the assembled tasters included “I like the lightness, especially given that we’re eating so many cakes,” and, “Yum! Very inventive.” The chef added, “And it wasn’t still frozen, it would be perfect!” to which the reply was heard, “But there’s nothing worse than runny jelly.” ‘Nuff said.
