A lolly cake or lolly log is a New Zealand cake or confectionary that features "lollies" (candy/sweets/confectionery) as a key ingredient.[1]

Traditionally Eskimo lollies or fruit puffs are used, which are like firm, but soft and chewy marshmallows. Chopped lollies are added to the base mixture, which consists of crushed plain malt biscuits combined with melted butter and sweetened condensed milk.[2] The mixture is usually pressed into a log shape and rolled in coconut, and then refrigerated until set and sliced.[3] Other ingredients can be added or substituted. Lolly cakes are very similar to the Northern Ireland traybake confections known as fifteens.

Lolly cakes can be found in most New Zealand grocery stores, and some dairies and petrol stations. Finding lolly cakes in the Cook Islands is difficult, even though residents of the Islands are New Zealand citizens. Lolly cakes can be difficult to find in Australia, even in areas where many New Zealand migrants live. In the United Kingdom, lolly cake is available at some antipodean cafes and coffee lounges.
