Popular Chicago Patisserie Vanille Announces Valentine’s Day Contest

Vanille would like you to name their newest Stud Muffin after your own special “stud”.

If you aren’t familiar with Vanille’s signature Stud Muffins, they are extra-large cupcakes with Vanille’s signature twist, creamy filling inside and topped by one of Vanille’s French-style macarons. They are both decadent and sophisticated at the same time, maybe like a man you know.

The artisans at Vanille create each Stud Muffin to have a distinctive blend of flavors, reminiscent of whoever it is named for.

“From our Red Velvet “Wyatt” to our seasonal specials like the chocolate and peppermint “Kris” (named for Kris Kringle), our Stud Muffin lineup is inspiration from the studs that love our cakes,” says Vanille Owner Sophie Evanoff.

Some of Vanille’s other Stud Muffin creations include “Jake” (vanilla mousseline, buttercream and white buttermilk cake topped with a blue vanilla macaron, red and blue stars and a Cubs “W” flag) named after Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, and Roméo (chocolate cake, raspberry, cream filling, buttercream, red hearts and a raspberry heart macaron) Vanille’s traditional Valentine’s Day offering.

Now it’s your turn to invent a special “Stud Muffin” for a special man you know.

From now until February 5th, you can nominate your “stud,” by submitting information on him and suggesting a fitting combination of flavors at [email protected] A winning recipe will be chosen on February 12th and sold in all Vanille stores through the month of February, celebrating your special man.

It's a truly unique way to celebrate the most romantic holiday of the year.

Founded in 2002, Vanille specializes in French-inspired artisanal pastries, desserts, and cakes. From the ever-popular French macarons to the freshly baked croissants and handmade chocolates and candies, every creation is made with dedication to craft and flavor.
