Malmsbury Bakery, Malmsbury

At the edge of the Victorian Goldfields, the throng crushing the counter at the Malmsbury Bakery was an encouraging sign. The 15 staff were doing a roaring trade in pies, sandwiches and cakes – promising. But the tray of vanilla slices was not moving – not promising. This $3.50 double layered ensemble was creamy like a French Mille Feuille, but left an awful, greasy, lard-like feel lingering on the lips. Topped unnecessarily with both icing sugar and vanilla icing, the tasty top layer was hard enough to chisel off, letting down the points earned for the immaculate, thin layers of puff pastry. For us there was no gold in this here town.
