If you like lucozade Caribbean crush then this this recipe is for you, in fact if you like anything tropical and refreshing then this recipe is for you, if you like the recipes that I create then this recipe is for you, if you’re sitting in the sun and you’re hot then this recipe is for you. Pineapple hits you at the forefront, coconut steps in just after the pineapple and then mango and passionfruit sit just at the end to really convince you that this is a tropical mix, sugarloaf and queen have been a combo I’ve used for some time now and there’s no mistaking the fact that there is pineapple in this recipe, this was the first time I’d used VTA coconut in a recipe and it’s a really good coconut, it’s not dry/bitter it just oozes that coconut you might taste in Malibu rum. VTA yellow passion, it’s the best passionfruit for taking higher as far as a percentage is concerned. WF is a good passionfruit but if you take it too high then you’re in dirt city (too earthy above 1%), same goes for the mango, VTA shisha I find is the best and least earthy mango amongst its competitors, if you don’t have this one in your arsenal there you’re missing out. Fizzy sherbet gives a carbonated feel.
Sweetener and coolant totally subjective but adds to the overall profile.

optional - add 0.5- 1% VT Raspberry Jam for some lovely extra yuminess. 1% is very forward while 0.5 sits in the back for some yummy jam back notes.
This one has been in demand and there has been much hype about this one as finally she arrives!! She's looking beautiful, feeling glamorous but keeping it real! This is my version of an Australian CWA (home made) Lamington. For those overseas that aren't familiar this is a national icon recipe that is baked by many for good causes and steeped in tradition that makes up the fabric of a lot of our fundraising drives!
It is essentially a home baked sponge cake with a thin layer layer of cream through the middle and sometimes has a little jam as well.
Then rolled in a thin layer of melted chocolate, then rolled again in a thin layer of shredded coconut.
As I like to do these days as I concentrate on making the best possible recipes I can, I immerse my self in the experience. That includes licking ,smelling, feeling and using all my senses to the fullest to try and best get the most authentic feel of a profile.
I think I've done an alright job here but i welcome your comments.
The MB Bounty gives a great start to the top layer of this recipe with very genuine dairy chocolate and coconut notes.
The VT Chocolate has the feel of the same chocolate texture I experience on a lamington and works well with the MB.
The VT Coconut completes the mouthfeel of real shredded coconut and makes me roll my tongue over my teeth to get those little bits of coconut free.
The WF Princess cake is the hero here as she makes a gorgeous appearance in her leading roll. Her cake is on point and offers a lovely mouthfeel and a real homemade spongecake feel to the middle of this recipe! Thank You Princess! You saved the day!
Then the princess found her charming in RF Deep Fried Spongecake and together they made amazing love that brings the middle of this recipe up offering some more generous mouthfeel in this recipe.
What more is needed you ask? The Cream! The FLV Cream has sat well in this recipe making you roll you tongue under looking for more beautiful cream.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did creating it, regardless enjoy the journey of mixing and stay Glamorous with a "Glamington" in your mouth! :)
