Pastry: Probably once flaky, but somewhat soggy 5/10
Presentation: ‘Hand finished’ swirls, proportionally sound 7/10
Value for money: $4.50 for two - Not bad if there’s no other alternative 7.5/10
Overall score: 6.6/10
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the ingredients and the custard was surprisingly smooth, creamy and vanilla flavoured. When frozen it was like a vanilla ice cream, but when thawed out it oozed everywhere when bitten. The ooze effect was also due to the softened pastry, having defrosted and become slightly soggy. I can imagine that these layers would have been pretty good when freshly baked; a golden brown colour, thin and flaky.
The only element I didn’t really enjoy was the icing; quite soft and grainy, though the dark chocolate swirls were a rather nice touch.
