Best vanilla slice in the country as voted by the professionals. I have to say it has all the components to back it up. The pastry was an evenly dark, rich colour and milimeter thin and as flaky as you will find. It provided excellent stability for lifting the light and fluffy vanilla custard that was more airy than the previous slices I’ve eaten over the weekend. It reminded me of the Johnny Baker (Castlemaine) slice, with a slight mottled effect of cream/custard. It was exceptionally hard not to drop any as it squashed out the sides with each bite. These guys are going to be busy from now on. Congratulations, well deserved.
