  1. Gosh, can’t remember the last time I had a custard pastry. Looks magnificent!!!
    Curious…
    All I see is this wonderful picture, no mention that it was your partner’s birthday, so how did all these people in the comments know to say happy birthday???
    What did I miss ? 🙂

    1. One of the first comments mentioned that there was ‘cake’ in her house on Wednesday because it was her daughter’s birthday. I responded that it was also my partners birthday and that was why I was posting a photo of a cake.

  2. Yum!!! Is that custard in the middle? My favorite ingredient in pastries! I’d love one right now, please! If there’s one thing you don’t find in the US, it’s fantastic baked goods, whether it’s bread or pastries. Or, they’re extremely expensive. How I miss the Belgian bakeries.

    1. I had no idea they were popular in Lancashire, Mary. When I lived in London and Brighton I never saw any custard slices. I saw plenty of cream slices and vanilla slices, but never custard slices. Here in Wales, they’re also known as Iced-Slices.

  3. I can put photos on my own blog but don’t know how to as a comment. Suffice to say I made a cake this weekend – a very naughty cake, called a chocolate stout cake. It should have been called a chocolate, stout and sugar cake – and it was iced. I used 85% dark chocolate and it was delicious.

      1. No. it should have been. It was an experiment and the icing didn’t set properly. Actually, it is rather too rich and I have to cut smaller slices than usual. The recipe said for ten people and I had to use the Christmas cake tin. I don’t think I’ll do it again.

      1. Oh is it, Hugh? I didn’t know that but I wish we had them here! I hope you’ve had your dinner by the time you read this, Hugh! It’s just approaching lunch time here and I do wish I had a custard slice waiting for me! LOL Cher xo

  4. Now that looks good! However, I’ll refrain as we are off to celebrate Lil Princess’s birthday with ice cream and there will be cake tonight… Diet starts tomorrow 😉
