Aussie Platter Goodness –

No Bake Australia Day Cake
This cake is right up my alley as there’s no need to turn the oven on, just a quick trip to Woolies and a few decorations and boom!
You can find the recipe here.
Australia Cheese Platter
This platter is total goals, so simple yet so effective. If you’re heading to the beach or a park this could easily be assembled on site in minutes.
This was created by the very clever Carol. B
We were able to put these cupcakes together in an hour using a store bought packet mix. The kids decorated them with green buttercream, green and gold sprinkles and a bag of $3 kola Koalas from Kmart which you can view here.
Decorated in the same way as the cupcakes above.
Only a handful of ingredients required to create these super cute biscuits, and you can find the recipe here.
Super quick and easy to make and the perfect one handed snack while fielding in backyard cricket!

Amy. J is another of our clever Party Mums group members, and hacked this store bought pavlova base to perfection by cutting it to the shape of our great nation. In ultimate clever fashion Amy has incorporated the fruit to match each state. NSW – Big Banana, SA – grapes for wine country and the edible chocolate coin represents ACT and the mint.
Koala’s in a Billabong
Mandy from My Lovely little Nest put together this sweet themed party and Caramello Koala’s in green jelly is ideal for the kids. You can use blue jelly if you prefer and we’re loving the addition of lamington jenga, party pies and vegemite sandwiches.
Bianca. S yet another clever Party Mums member has decorated store bought mini mud cupcakes to create koalas. Bianca has added a little black food colouring to store bought white frosting to make grey, a sprinkling of shredded coconut, candy eyes, marshmallow ears, and choc covered sultanas for the nose. Adorable!
