In one word: Tiny
Claiming to have the "Best vanilla slice in Melbourne" on Twitter, I had to see for myself. With a French pastry chef in their ranks, I admit the pastry was heavenly; Golden, buttery, flaky and a real treat to pick out of your teeth afterwards! The custard boasting a beautiful yellow eggy colour and vanilla seeds running through. The fondant icing sticky to the touch and soft enough to lick off your fingers. Then comes the sneaky layer of homemade jam that gives it another dimension. I could not fault the style, flavours and textures whatsoever, but the size and cost really let this one down. I know they say that good things come in small packages, but at $5.20 that is not always the case.
