Overall score: 6.5/10
Byron: The double chocolate brownie was dense and rich, the salted caramel mud cake was highly sweet, salty and moist. Then the vanilla slice divided the group; with some great attributes and some slight disappointments. I ate my share of the vanilla slices but felt like I could have eaten more. The custard had the homemade custard powder taste to it which was quite pleasant, but not sweetened. It's texture as smooth as you'll get and as light as air and with a good 'squidge' factor when eaten freestyle. The pastry was crisp, but not like most other multi-layer slices you buy. It's single layer construction did the job and made cutting into portions straight forward, but I think it could have been more buttery and flaky.
Em: I thought that this vanilla slice was reasonably priced at $4. The pastry was flaky and had a nice texture whilst the custard consistency was firm, but had a softness to it. The only fault for me was the lack of flavour. 5/10
Lynsey: Beautifully presented, I expected this vanilla slice to have an above average taste. Unfortunately, the custard lacked flavour and I was a bit disappointed. Great price at $4 and the pastry had a lovely flaky texture. 6/10
