‘Our dense chocolate cake is covered in a rich Vegemite and dark chocolate ganache before being rolled through coconut,’ Ms Milner said.
‘These are sandwiched together with homemade raspberry jam and finished off with generous amounts of Vegemite and chocolate ganache piped on top and finally fresh raspberries,’ she said.
The cakes have been made with a touch of elegance, according to the pastry maker, who says the Vegemite ganache compliments the usual flavours.
‘Don’t be fooled – if you love anything salted/caramel flavoured – you will love this. The flavour of Vegemite creates an amazing salted dark chocolate taste,’ she said.
‘It has been great to create a dessert out of two Australian icons.’
‘The lamington is such a popular treat, and definitely one my top selling products all year round. It has the perfect balance with the sponge, tart raspberry, rich dark chocolate, and fresh coconut.’
