Shea Talks Cakes. 🍰"Very Caramelly. I love caramel. The base is like ah, ah thin wafer biscuit-y type. Very crumbly. The right amount of crumble. This is my early afternoon tea. I could eat the whole thing and I won't feel sick. Come to this cafe and try out the caramel slice but if you do beware... it's very good." - Shea

Thanks to cafe .179 and Heidi who baked this delicious Choc Top Caramel Slice.
