In one word: Anemic
Second bakery of the hat-trick weekend, bought as a take away and dissected in my Grampians cottage later that night. These guys came 3rd in the 2013 challenge, I honestly don't understand how. As always I sampled first then ate for pleasure, except there wasn't much of the latter; in fact, picture 2 shows what I threw away in displeasure. Icing WAY too thick and solid (impossible to cut at all), the pastry anemic, soggy and likewise impossible to cut. The custard was the only element that I finished, with its rather custard powder taste the texture was OK at best. I think that I should enter the challenge and see if I can come 3rd!
