A Napoleon is a rather tasty treat made with custard and pastry topped with delicate vanilla icing. The fine example pictured right is from The Champagne Bakery - a local SoCal chain I first found in Malibu with the Parentals. As a cold custard-o-phobe and prefer-a-tiramisu-aholic I surprise myself to be recommending this item. For those residing down under it is apparently known as a Vanilla Slice. If they are common in Ingerland they certainly didn’t catch my eye and the name isn’t familiar so I suspect they may be ‘far too ponce’ for the average frozen pizza and chips Tennents Super drinking Britisher.
