Vanilla Bake Shop: Review


So a few weeks ago it was mine and Dylan’s 3 year anniversary! Crazy, the time has gone by so fast. And since I work for Fairmont, we went to stay at The Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica for a day/night of relaxation. And lots of yummy food =]

One of the first places we stopped at was Vanilla Bake Shop, only a couple blocks away from the hotel!


They had the cutest Halloween display in the window. I wanted to take it home with me!


We were each going to get a mini cupcake, but since they only sell the mini cupcakes in 3’s, we picked out a third!

Finally decided on Banana Chocolate Chip, Fudgy Brownie & Red Velvet.

Started with the Red Velvet, it was so moist the wrapper was falling off! Loved the cake, but thought the frosting could be a little bit more cream cheesy.


Then Fudgy Brownie, this one was our least favorite. The cake was a dry “brownie” with not-so-exciting vanilla frosting.


Cutting it in half to share!


Banana Chocolate Chip, this one was AMAZING! The banana cake had the perfect amount of chocolate chips and was super moist, and the cream cheese frosting complimented it very well. Would definitely order this cupcake again!




And Dylan got a super awesome shirt!
