      I found the sponge to be more of a cake then a sponge but the result was very tasty and they were very easy to make! Will probably use the cake recipe again as a cake but will look for something a bit lighter next time I make lamingtons.

      I do agree that the cake needs to be at least a day old to hold the icing well... I usually add 2tablespoons of melted butter to the icing. We love lamingtons!

      I can only rate the sponge cake recipe as I did not use the icing recipe. At first tasting of the plain cake, my husband and I both thought the cake might be a little too vanilla flavored for lamingtons and my husband thought it was a little dry. However after coated in chocolate and coconut and allowed to sit for a day or so they were irresistable! The cake, if dry, was sufficiently moistened by the chocolate icing and held its shape and texture perfectly. I would use this cake recipe again.
