Now make the icing for the lamington cake by pouring the boiling water on the butter and then adding the cocoa, and then the sifted soft icing mixture. Beat all ingredients well together.

When the lamington cake is thoroughly cold cut the laminton cake into squares, or rectangles depending on your tastes. Using a long pronged fork dip each square or rectangle of lamington into the chocolate icing and then into coconut. This covers each piece in icing and then sticks the dessicated coconut to the lamington

Leave the freshly iced lamington pieces to set on a cake rack.
