A Blueberry Lamington Train for a Blue Baby Shower

Keeping in  tune with the blue colour theme of a baby shower for a gorgeous mum-to-be of a beautiful baby boy, I have made a twist on the usual chocolate covered lamingtons into blueberry flavoured ones, transformed into a toy train. Such an adorable centerpiece!

These lamingtons have a light and fluffy vanilla sponge cake interior that are encased in blueberry jelly and rolled in fine desiccated coconut.

The train engine is made using three lamington squares with a chimney made of raspberry licorice and wheels of dark chocolate buttons.   Each lamington train cart is filled with colourful chocolate drops and wheels made of white chocolate buttons, all connected together using raspberry licorice.

The best part about this cake- the look of surprise and delight on people’s faces!
