Vanilla Slice Showdown: The Best Bakeries in Australia Revealed!

Listen up, folks, 'cause I've got something important to say: vanilla slices with icing on top are where it's at! That luscious custard center, the satisfyingly crunchy pastry, and the sweet, sticky icing? Absolutely drool-worthy 🤤 But let's get one thing straight: dusting that bad boy with icing sugar is a complete waste of time. Who wants to inhale all that useless sugar dust anyway?

Now, hold on to your hats, because the 2023 Victorian Baking Show in Bendigo was the ultimate showdown of 143 bakeries from all over Australia, serving up a whopping 590 treats to the judges. And let me tell you, the competition was fierce. But drumroll, please! The crème de la crème of vanilla slices was awarded to none other than North End Bakehouse in Shepparton, Victoria.
