    YUM! My fave kiwi treat! I made this lolly cake in the UK. I bought malt biscuts and eskimo lollies from the NZ shop. Came out looking and tasting just like shop bought cake...mmmm so excited! Craved all through my pregnancy, now I have 9 days left. Better make the most of it :)

    I'm a New Zealander living in the U.S. My family always used to make this "Rainbow Log" for birthdays. I just made it using Nabisco Nilla Wafers instead of Malt Biscuits, and Marshmallow Peanuts from my local grocery store as I didn't have access to Eskimos or Fruit Puffs. Absolutely delicious and very similar to the original! Maybe a tiny bit sweeter than if Malt Biscuits were used.
