This looks like a lamington, but inside it's something completely different

Beneath the chocolate and desiccated coconut coating is a carefully crafted cube-shaped croissant, oozing with dark chocolate ganache and strawberry rose jam

Earlier this year, the bakery surprised foodies after creating a dessert that looked like a lamington, one of Australia’s most beloved cakes, but beneath the chocolate and desiccated coconut layer was a carefully crafted cube-shaped croissant.

The store’s website is full of decadent desserts, including a $40 matcha basque cheesecake, a $12 sticky date croissant, and a flourless chocolate cake.

Another highlight is the $50 “pastry package” that’s perfect for lockdown, which includes a regular croissant, an almond croissant, a cramington, a Croque monsieur croissant, a Vegemite cheese croissant, and a Nutella cruffin.

Earlier this year, the bakery surprised foodies after creating a dessert that looked like a lamington, one of Australia’s most beloved cakes, but beneath the chocolate and desiccated coconut layer was a carefully crafted cube-shaped croissant.

The cubes, which took several months to perfect, were created to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the very first lamington, believed to have been invented by French chef Armand Galland for the Governor of Queensland, Lord Lamington.

“We use the same technique we used to make our other croissants, but this one is cut into different shapes with thicker layers,” says Banksia baker Chris Sheldrick.

“What better way to pay tribute to both the French maker and the pie’s namesake than with a fusion-style French croissant and an Australian lamington.”
