Rainbow Lamingtons

I made Rainbow lamingtons!  For the cake recipe I made another microwave cake but not chocolate this time!  My sister helped me make them. For the icing recipe I went to Simply Sweet n' Savoury blog.  I made three different colours, pink,yellow and blue.I also made one using all the colours!  I had to dip cake pieces in the icing and then cover them in lots of coconut!  It was very sticky but fun!!  I ate them with my friends.  I thought they were the best lamingtons ever!

Pavlova

This week I made a pavlova.  I made it because we had a huge pineapple from our garden!

Here is the recipe to make pavlova:

Ingredients
4 egg whites
pinch of salt
200g caster sugar
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp vanilla essence
1tsp lemon juice
carton cream
fresh fruits

Steps:
Preheat oven to 140C
Add salt to egg whites+whisk until very stiff
Gradually add sugar, whisking until very stiff
Stir in cornflour, vanilla+lemon
Spoon onto baking sheet+form 3cm deep circle
Bake 1hr until looks pale brown+ hard to touch
Cool+top with cream and fruit

I found cracking the eggs hard because I accidently let some of the yolk in!
I also found whisking a bit hard because I couldn't keep my arm up for long!!

I hope you like it to!
