A famous Australian pastry chef reinvented the humble vanilla slice – with fresh mangoes to take it to the next level.

“We sent her on a two-week vacation to organize and that has come back,” he said cheekily at the post.

“A luscious plate of mango custard between two crispy pieces of caramelized puffs, a creamy note of vanilla and Chantilly and silky ribbons of fresh mango.”
The chef said the dessert was “new to the cabinet” at his Smore-based restaurant, Saga.
“She’s the hottest thing in the saga since I got on speedometers lathered in coconut oil,” he joked.
This isn’t the first time a chef has made it his business to improve on the old favorite.

The Australians recently drooled over new slices of vanilla with Lotus Biscoff and Cadbury Caramilk.
The self-taught baker ‘Costadina’ conjures up the exceptionally decadent delicacies in St. Clair, west of Sydney.
The Caramilk slice is a caramel lover’s dream, filled with creamy vanilla pudding and garnished with thick shavings of caramelized white chocolate.
Cinnamon fans will prefer the Biscoff version, which is wrapped with a rich layer of the signature spread and topped with crumbled pieces of the iconic Belgian biscuit.
