Reviewer: Gerry from Adelaide, Australia
This was so easy to make, and absolutely delicious. For the benefit of other Aussies reading this, we used Vitasoy Calci-plus soy milk, Orgran custard powder, and Coles Farmland puff pastry sheets, which (as far as I can tell) are vegan, and Nuttelex for the icing. For the icing, we did half passionfruit icing, and half coconut. Either way, you won't regret making this.

Reviewer: Tammy from Melbourne, Australia
Being vegan and not eating sugar means we can't often find sweet and tasty desserts. I substituted the sugar with honey (my only not quite vegan compromise) and substituted the icing sugar with silken tofu. It is addictive and delicious. Thanks a million.

Amazing Vanilla Slice, May 11, 2005 - 10:58 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Swan Hill, Australia
I am a vegan from Victoria in Australia. This slice recipe is fantastic.The taste is excellent and so quick and easy to prepare. A bit of care when arranging the final layers gives a good visual appearance. I tried this recipe adding a couple of drops of rose essence to the custard. It was nice but really I decided this recipe is so good it doesn't need to be improved upon.
