Serving Change
  • 9
    lamington squares
  • glacŽ icing
  • liquorice strips
  • round sweets for the wheels
  • 2
    sugared jelly rings
  • 2
    dome-shaped sugared jelly sweets variety of small sweets
  • 1
    rectangular cake board


Use 3 lamington squares to form the locomotive. Use glacŽ icing to stick 2 lamington squares together, and stick another one on top of the back square.

Place the locomotive on the cake board (use glacŽ icing to secure it).

Cut a square out of the top lamington, leaving a 1cm edge all round. Do the same with the remaining 6 squares, to form the carriages of the train.  

Cut the liquorice strips into pieces ± 3cm long. Press one end of a piece of liquorice into the back of the lamington locomotive and press the other end into another lamington, so it appears as if the train carriage is hooked to the locomotive. Repeat with the rest of the lamingtons to form the train.

Using a little glacŽ icing, stick the round sweets to the lamingtons, so they resemble the wheels of the train. Stick 2 sugared jelly rings at the front of the locomotive and place 2 dome-shaped sugared jelly sweets on top of the jelly rings, to form the funnels.

Finally, place a variety of small sweets on the locomotive and carriages.
