Orange Spot Bakery, Glenelg
We were tired at the end of our journey and so were the vanilla slices. Coming a long way in search of the second prize winner of the professional section of the 2007 Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph to find that there were only just enough to go around and they – like us – were weary looking specimens, naturally dampened the enthusiasm. Once we got a fork to them, the icing was firm though tasty and there was quite a splat as we broke through the top, but they held together reasonably well. The custard was the highlight, tasting creamy and of fresh eggs, but the pastry was dry not buttery. On a table there was a visitors book – unusual, but perhaps they like to revel in praise here. With thoughts of our next sampling we left our URL in the book and dragged ourselves homewards.
