Melbourne baker Tyga McCormack (pictured) has kicked off the latest cooking trend after sharing his 15-minute crown made from Austrian treats.
A baker made a budget cake with ingredients from Woolworths (left) and they all came in under $20. To make the festive wreath she used a Woolworths jam roll, lamingtons, Cottee’s strawberry jam, cream, raspberries, strawberries and flakes (right)
The baker used Woolworths jam rolls, lamingtons, Cottee’s strawberry jam, cream, raspberries, strawberries and flake to make the crown.
“You know when you want to do something and you want it to be impressive, but you don’t want to need it anytime? “That was me when I was doing it,” he said.
I called it the Crown of Scramington. ‘Scramington’ because it’s a scroll and a lamington combined.’
To make the holiday dessert, Tiga cut his roll into 12 pieces and cut six lamingtons in half to make 12.
Then he arranged the dishes in turn on the wooden board and let out a new scream from the gap between them.
She decorated the wreath with strawberries, raspberries and crushed flake.
Tiga mixed water and strawberry jam together and poured it all over the dessert.
hmm. seriously. Look, it just looks so good, said the proud baker.
I took it to afternoon tea, it took 15 minutes to make and it absolutely fell apart.

Her followers liked the creative recipe.
“And a new Australian icon was born,” one woman said.
‘I love. Absolutely 100 percent doing this as my dessert Christmas wreath this year with mini meringues falling apart,” wrote another.
“We’re having a small Christmas this year because we don’t want a fuss. Think we’ll do it,” said one man.
However, many confused people outside of Australia didn’t really understand lamingtons.
“Your bakery is amazing, but there’s a reason no one else in the world eats lamingtons,” wrote one man.
“I don’t know where you’re from, but I can assure you that a lot of people eat lamingtons,” Tiga replied.
