Pastry: Solid mass sheets, inedible 2/10
Presentation: Super-sized proportions, visible layer distinction 8.5/10
Value for money: $5.50 - Jumbo portion size, heavy going 5/10
Overall score: 6/10
Selling at only $5.50 for such an oversized slice, I felt I was off to a good start. Back at the car, I decided not to risk picking this thing up with my hands and instead opted for a disposal spoon. I encountered my first problem when the spoon met resistance with the pastry layers. The pastry was uncompromising and as hard as a sheet of damp cardboard. The layers were heavily compacted and offered no flake or bite whatsoever. I only managed to have a nibble of a corner and discovered that the pastry was not going to wear down my jaw bones and occupy unnecessary stomach space with such a huge portion of cream based filling still to work through.
I instead focused my attention to both layers of fresh whipped cream and devilishly creamy custard. I had spoons of both components independent from one another and mixed together, with all combinations proving a delight. After a dozen or so spoonfuls I reached the end of my mission and felt rather sick! The custard was a good, somewhat vicious constancy, with creaminess and a hint of vanilla. Just a shame about the pastry really.
