I apologize now for the following incredibly bad story of how Super K saved Mt. Lamington from the big scary T-Rex in the Land of P.
To be honest, the blame is totally on the shoulders of Mr. P of Delicious, Delicious, Delicious. Please send all complaint letters to him. This is the second year of his Lamington Challenge. You can read my entry from last year here.
This year my 4 year old wanted in on this challenge. We used our Christmas Tree Pop recipe to make this volcano but we added about 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut to the cake (short version of recipe is: bake a cake and pulse it up in a food processor; add a tub of icing; mould it into desired shape; freeze it; cover it in candy). It was his idea to use the dinosaur and thankfully, an Aussie friend gave me Super K just yesterday to bring it all together.
The volcano is simply covered in melted chocolate candy buttons and sprinkles were added before it dried. We also melted red candy for the "lava" shooting out of Mt Lamington.
Finally, please note no dinosaurs or koalas were hurt in the making of this story. My 4 yr old, on the other hand, tripped over a phone wire and bruised his chin...poor little guy. Luckily, a big piece of Mt Lamington will make him all better.
Without further ado, the story of how Super K saved the day!
