At this point, you should know that the vanilla slice is quite dear to our hearts over here. 

We're forever on the search for the next custard square, or snot block to pop up on our radar, and lucky for us one steeped in accolades has risen to the top once more. 

Sharp's Bakery based out of Birchip in the northwest region of Victoria has just taken out the #1 spot for 'The Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph 2022'. This isn't the first time this snot block has seen the glory, it's also won the accolade four times before. 

Brad Sharp who's the brains behind the vanilla slice punches the clock at a staggering 3am each day, crafting and perfecting his custard creation. 

The Sharp's award-winning snot block is a timeless combination of the three major components; ultra-light pastry, smooth and flavoursome custard and sweet and glossy icing.
