Browns Bakery, Albert Park
Tall and blonde with a creamy complexion it stood like an Yummy-Mummy in a shiny black SUV, looking down on the traffic of cakes around it. A modern two storey twin set of pastel hues overlaid with a filigree of icing, this Brown’s vanilla slice had built its vocation on good looks and being in the right places. Technically it was fine – creamy with decent pastry and attractive icing – but the flavours were as beige as a Bayside Mansion’s feature walls. Cumbersome and uptight, it was as big a disaster to navigate as a Porsche Cayenne in school gate gridlock. With custard like Prozac, this was just another ding in the fender on the road to perfection.
