do an old school one with lamingtons & chocolate crackles. Lol.

sounds good but you need to add some sweet things as it's all savoury. people love chocolate so do some choccy cupcakes or biscuits or if you can't be bothered, buy some lollies or a few packets of chocolate fingers or farmbake cookies (as they come in those fairly large bags).

I actually would like to make lamingtons for my daughter's 5th birthday, but how hard are they to make? I'm doing an old fashioned tea party so mini ones would be perfect :)

Does anyone have a great recipe for lamingtons? TIA :)

There was one on here a while back that I tired and it was great - try searching Lamingtons on here and you might find it

Keep in mind, lunch is at midday, and they wont quite be at the stage of being the waste disposal units of their older counterparts, so masses of food may not be required.
