Classic Kiwi pink lamingtons

Makes 12

1 packet raspberry jelly
1¼ cups boiling water
300g store-bought sponge cake
2 cups desiccated coconut
½ cup cream, lightly whipped
¹/³ cup raspberry jam

1. In a bowl, combine jelly crystals with boiling water and stir until crystals dissolve. Place jelly mixture in the fridge to cool and slightly set.

2. Trim any dark edges from sponge cake and slice into 12 equal rectangles or squares, as desired. Spread coconut on a tray.

3. Dip all sides of each sponge square in cold jelly mixture, then roll in coconut to coat to make lamingtons. Cut a slit in the top of each lamington.

4. Place a tablespoonful of whipped cream in the slit of each lamington, then decorate each one with a teaspoonful of raspberry jam.
