cream scream

We enjoyed this rant (link above) about the price and quality of the cream buns at the Rottnest bakery.

After recalling halcyon days on Rotto and the early morning aromas from the bakery, Paul notes the "functional gleaming glass and chrome" of the new premises.

He takes his three kids to the bakery and orders cream buns: "They were one of the great Rottnest treats I remembered from the past."

How much? $18.

And in Paul's opinion, not money well spent.

"They were icy cold and doughy. Like some sort of a concoction from Mawson Base. There was a blob of red jam and a light dusting of icing sugar on the tops, but these trimmings did nothing to enhance the taste or texture."

However, not as many people share his outrage as expected.

"...they didn't give a rat's arse either...they looked at me as if I was some kind of Martian. It seems I am the only one who thinks they were expensive."
