The Cakeyboi Alphabet - V

In the Cakeyboi Alphabet, V is for Vanilla.

Vanilla, the flavour, actually comes from the orchid plant. It is the second most expensive flavouring after saffron, but is widely used throughout the world. In culinary use it comes as a pod, which you split to release the flavoured seeds, as powder or as extract, which contains alcohol. 

And vanilla is the most common flavour of ice cream, often referred to as ‘plain’, but as we all know it is anything but!!


  1. Vanilla is always the best flavour - especially ice cream. Love the stuff!

    1. You can't beat good old vanilla CC - you're right!
