Pro-Tip: When I put "Take #" in the title you know it's probably not good news!
Miss 10 has a class party tomorrow, which we found out about on Friday, and she wanted to make and take in Lamingtons.
So on Saturday we made a lamington sponge recipe (from the Country Women's Association cookbook) to leave for a couple of days and today we were going to ice it.
I had put it in what I thought was an airtight container. Unfortunately, we have some clever ants in this part of the world and they had found their way inside the container :(
Major disappointment when I had to throw all of the cake out :( ...
Hubby was despatched to locate a sponge cake down at the local shops which could be used instead - however, the best he could do was a jam roll.
So we iced that - after a minor disaster with the icing (we had followed a recipe for that but the quantities were way off) :( ... The second batch of icing was better ... so hopefully tomorrow we'll be able to slice the jam roll and she can take that in instead.
I don't often makes cakes or similar ... and I'm thinking we need more practice!
