Recipe by Chelsea^_^
This recipe is only found in the Edmonds cook book. This famous recipe from New Zealand is to die for. I grew up eating this and I can tell you, it's fantastic! I hope that people in different countries will love this just as we do here in New Zealand! Enjoy!

this was my first ever thing I learned to bake when I was 4 years old back in NZ! I was so devistated when I lost my Edmonds book last year and for the life of me couldnt remember the recipe! Thankyou so much Chelsea!!! I love ginger, so always double that part, and loads of icing, so I double that too! The hardest part of this, is waiting for it to cool to be able to eat it! LOVE IT!
