Monarch Cakes, St.Kilda

The Monarch ‘Continental Custard Vanilla’ Slices sat huddled together for comfort beside their evil twin, The Vanilla Cream Slice. The wanton Cream Slice enticed successfully with vampish wickedness. The plain Custard Slice was forlorn, not popular. Although this sweet, good twin stood high and had the perfect amount of icing sugar dusting its crown, biting in was not easy. To use a fork required a stable surface with which to gain some traction. The reward was crisp and tasty pastry and so far the most perfect of all crusts. The custard was thick and held together smoothly. One bite, no vanilla flavour. Two bites, no egg flavour – but perhaps a vaguely perceptible whiff of lemon?  Poor plain Jane Custard Slice. So much potential given up for the evil twin of cream. Baby doll, you won’t shine until they get some decent free range eggs into your custard. Now go back and stand in your corner.
