In one word: Non Eventful
This vanilla slice promised so much. At $4 it comes in at a reasonable price, and judging by the army of them in the cake cabinet they must have been freshly baked this morning. A few tweaks with flavours and I think this could be a really good specimen, but at present flavour is just lacking. Pastry was most satisfactory; crisp and flaky, although not overly buttery. The custard, again was pretty good in terms of consistency, colour and texture, although lacking the hit of vanilla that I would have expected. Lastly, the icing was a smidge too thick and although generous it lacked a real sweetness or vanilla flavour to make up for the flavourless custard. Nearly, but not quite!
