In one word: Pleasant
I was aiming for a vanilla slice from Dad and Dave's but calling in on a Sunday proved a gamble, and they were sold out. Therefore I went around the corner and had breakfast at Alfa Bakehouse. The vanilla slice was sold to me as a custard filling but when I got it home and started eating, it was obviously just a thickened cream filling. Having said that the whole thing was rather pleasant from start to finish. The pastry looked worryingly soggy, but when cutting and biting through it, it remained crisp and flaky, to my relief. The thick layer of vanilla cream was fresh and tasty and the sweetness of the patterned fondant icing was welcomed.
