We had the honour of attending the official opening of Vanoir in Paddington, newly opened thanks to award winning cupcake and couture luxury cake designer, Orlando Sanpo. Sanpo, founder of Black Velvet Sydney and Creative Director of this new store, Vanoir Sydney, has opened a new store with bespoke cakes, cupcakes and more to impress your guests and tastebuds.
Situated in a beautiful townhouse at the Paddington five ways, it has stylish interiors and is the perfect addition to the area.
Upon entry, we breathtakingly admired all the sweet treats, almost too beautiful to eat. But, Orlando was encouraging us to try. We are glad we did!
Marg Simonovska, Orlando’s friend introduced us to the story behind the business and to Orlando. Previously a jewellery designer, his passion for design is clear and this has transformed through to his production of amazing cakes, or as one could call it – edible art! He demonstrated the process behind his work, showing how a design goes from paper to the cake. He certainly creates masterpieces and comes with a wealth of experience through his studies, travels to the USA and UK and his cakes also have French patisserie technique.
There was beautiful array of cakes, and smaller treats such as cake pops, eclairs and cupcakes. Orlando’s new creation is a lychee flavoured cupcake which was outstanding. The cake is so fluffy, flavoursome and topped with a deliciously creamy icing. We highly recommend trying some of these!
Pop in for a bite to take away with a tea or coffee or order a bespoke cake for any event and you will not be disappointed.
We wish Orlando and Vanoir all the success that it deserves.
Thanks to Samantha at the PRHUB for the invitation to the event.
