This recipe has an interesting tie as its come from two sources: mum and a Sydney friend. Many of you may remember mum comes from an Australian country town Wingham. So does my friend Michael who now lives in Sydney and when we discovered this common bond, both of original settler families, he sent me an email of recipes he had discovered on a visit 'home'. This was in mum's book, and in Michael's collection.

  1. my mum also had a recipe for this, but instead of chocolate icing she would make up marshmallow and put a layer of that. my sister and I would take turns at picking the colour. but then, we were from Nambucca
