Happy Friday and time for some sweets! The Vanilla Bake Shop bakes everything from scratch, with a focus on contemporary design and taste. It is run by a husband and wife team – love that! After graduating culinary school, they started a dessert catering company. After such great feedback, they opened Vanilla Bake Shop. The name was concocted years ago in culinary school. While in class one day, my instructor told us that “Vanilla was the worlds most universally loved flavor.” We knew when the time was right, that would be the name of our bake shop. You can’t miss their storefront on Wilshire in Santa Monica – beautiful.
Vanilla Bake Shop bakes cakes, cupcakes, mini cupcakes, and lots of other sweets – aka dessert bars! They have some amazing flavors such as: Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Bean Cake, Red Velvet, Passion Fruit Creme, Carrot Cake, Espresso and many more. I love their cupcakes also…flavors such as Key Lime, Blackberry Passion Fruit, Strawberries & Creme, and Toasted Coconut to name a few. Check out their site for more details.
