Australia Day

I love getting into the festive spirt no matter what the holiday!

Australia Day is a great excuse for some Aussie cooking fun.

Last year I had some fun and with a twist on the classic Iced VoVo, and made this yummy Iced VoVo cake!


You can get the recipe and full instructions here!

If you’re not really a cook or you’re looking for a short cut, you could buy a slab cake from the supermarket to decorate.

The boys and I decorated an Aussie favourite, the Arnott’s Milk Arrowroot to look like another Aussie favourite – The Koala!


We used

-Milk arrowroot biscuits for the base

– Black food colouring mixed with white icing sugar to make grey icing

-White marshmallows cut in half for the ears

-Chocolate coated sultanas for the noses

– The eyes are available in the cake decorating section of your supermarket

– Desiccated coconut to sprinkle on top for fur


They were so proud of their effort that we made a second batch for Blair to take and share with his classmates.

The boys are already asking if we’ll be making Koala Cookies again this year.

This Australia day we are heading to a friend’s house for a BBQ and a swim. I think these Australia day treats might be due for an encore performance.


What are you doing this Australia day? I’d love to hear how you spend the day and if you make any yummy treats.

Happy Organising
