So it's been a pretty long time since I've posted a custard square review - I just haven't encountered many new ones lately, sorry! But my friend Belinda has come to the rescue of the custard square with her review from afar.
Today we bought a box of four bakery treats at Asda. One of the treats was a custard slice. I thought it would be wrong not to do a review for Mrs. Cake!
The icing was lovely, sweet and not sickly, no coconut but it didn't matter, and as this is England, I didn't set my hopes too high anyway! The custard filling was so delicious, it had an almost caramelized vanilla flavour, if that is possible! The pastry was perfectly acceptable, broke easily enough when bitten or cut and wasn't chewy.
I'm actually going to award it a surprising 9/10.
(the scone, chocolate éclair and cream doughnut were yummy too)
