Kiwiana Kitchen Print

Print size in millimetres: 300 x 420 (A3)

Squares of sponge cake coated in chocolate or rasberry sauce then rolled in dessicated coconut. Known as “lamingtons” after the Queensland governor of the same name who did not invent them, he first sampled what was known as a “Wellington” in Wellington in 1895. Recent research at the University of Auckland led by Dr Arun Silva has also uncovered a painting by New Zealand landscape artist JR Smythe dated 1888 that shows a partially eaten Lamington on the bench of a Wellington cottage’s interior conclusively proving the kiwi rather than Australian origins of this famous antipodean cake. In this print Glenn Jones has elevated the lamington to its rightful place as an icon of kiwiana by placing them on a decorative cake stand of the type used in a formal afternoon tea.
