This one is for you Australia.
Hello from freezing Brooklyn!
Tomorrow, January 26th is Australia Day. It's the July 4th of Down Under. So I'm sending this cake to you my beloved island, and it's peoples, who are no doubt already celebrating. This is my version of the 'Lammo' aka Lamington. It's got coconut, chocolate, raspberries, and whipped cream, and is meant to be eaten straight from the dish with old friends. You'll find the recipe in Simple Cake in the Travel Cakes chapter.
I'm going to bake and courier one to Aussie ex-pat and legend, Laura Brown. If you haven't seen what Laura has been doing at Instyle, check it out! She is fun, hilarious, irreverent and moving the dial on how women are perceived in the media and fashion. So I think my Australian sista deserves my Lazy Lamington.
