So the vanilla slices...
Large in stature, fragrant even through my compulsory face mask and doubly as good the next day - with no hint of sogginess setting in to the pastry. The vanilla bean was visible through the thick luscious custard and the pastry looked like it had been sunbathing with a golden tan.
When picked up the pastry layers were firm but as flaky as the best slices I’ve eaten. The slice was heavy and oozed of quality ingredients. With my first mouthful the pastry broke away in large shards and my teeth glided through the luscious whipped vanilla custard. Though pretty large, I worked my way through one slice with relative ease and was content to stop there. I ate the second slice the next day, as mentioned, and I was able to enjoy more of the same.
Thanks Angela, a mighty fine baker, and an all round lovely person.
