Gail Sauer’s Bakery Cafe offers a French Vanilla Slice (as well as a standard Vanilla Slice).
They also offer a Strawberry version that I road tested today.
The custard is creamy, not strongly vanilla; the pastry is very light and flaky, not crumbly; the icing is more butter cream than fondant – very pink; the cream mixes well with the other flavours and textures.
The strawberry version replaces the vanilla of the custard with a more tangy berry type.
I’ve been cramming as much rest and recreation as I can into 72 hours, not counting time spent attending an online conference and also perfecting Assembly minutes.
Tomorrow it’s back to Brisbane, via a detour on the way down.
