Woodend Bakery Cafe, Woodend


Like a two-bit heroine in a 1950’s B grade melodrama, the icing flattened itself to the paper bag and clung on for dear life. As though dragging a wench in fishnet stockings across the floor, the paper came away with a thick coating of sweet white icing emblazoned with a diagonal chocolate slash. And like all messy drama queens this vanilla slice was hard to handle, flaky and oozing sensuously. Wicked temptation yielded momentary pleasure, creamy egg custard was licked off sticky fingers and the quality pastry diverted attention from the soft vanilla icing. And then just as quickly it was over, distant like a cheap memory, with minds set on the next conquest.

  1. These little paragraphs are delightful. Replete with metaphorical joys and pains, they tempt me to read on, even if I am denied the reward of the photographed treat. Keep up the good work.
