Earlier in the week we brought you our Australia Day-inspired ‘First Fleet bacon ‘n avo boats‘ and said we’d post a round-up of our favourite fun food ideas for Australia Day. Well, as promised, here it is! Of course, you don’t actually have to celebrate Australia Day to enjoy these little treats. Wherever you are in the world, we hope you have a fun and food-filled 26th January!
Aussie fruit flag

These mini versions of the traditional Aussie pav are super easy, super tasty and impressive-looking to boot. Most big supermarkets stock pre-made mini meringues, then simply decorate with whipped cream and your favourite fruit. If you are feeling really adventurous, follow this link for a recipe to make the meringues from scratch. Image: Mouths of Mums
Tim Tam cake
If this is not the definition of decadence, we’re not sure what is! While not exactly suitable for a Tim Tam Slam, this little number is guaranteed to be an Australia Day backyard barbie crowd pleaser. Image: Raspberri Cupcakes
A little more low-key that the Tim Tam cake, the koala sandwich makes a tasty tribute to our favourite national emblem. Image: Little Food Junction
Green and gold jelly bites
Aeroplane Jelly has been an Australian institution since its iconic ‘I love Aeroplane Jelly’ jingle hit our radio waves in the late 1930s. So it’s only fitting that it should feature in our line-up of Australia Day foodie favourites. Image: Aeroplane Jelly
First Fleet bacon ‘n avo boats
Lastly, in case you missed them earlier this week, here are our First Fleet bacon ‘n avo boats again… Happy Australia Day!
