The PR Hub Vanoir Opening Night
On Wednesday 15 November, cupcake and cake designer to the stars, Orlando Sanpo (formerly Black Velvet Sydney) officially opened his latest store Vanoir in Paddington.
Vanoir was earlier this year voted Best of Sydney 2017 – cake and cupcakery brand, and is co-owned by Sanpo and business partner, Julian Patino.
Guests included Jessica Mauboy, designer Steven Khalil, cosmetic tattoo artist Gordana Willesee-Poljak, WINK Models and theright.fit CEO Taryn Williams, fashion agent Phoebes Garland, and muse Marg Simonovska from Jan Logan, who told guests of the friendly battle between her and her sister to claim Orlando as their own after both discovering that they had been visiting him for years and claiming that each had the ‘best cupcake maker’ in Sydney.
Sanpo took guests through his artistic process, from sketch to final cake design and creation, which took inspiration from Simonovska’s Khalil gown. They were also first to try the Simonvska inspired, lychee flavoured “Grace Blossom’ cupcake, as well as a selection of meringue kisses, hand made macaroons, mini cupcakes, couture cake-pops, french eclairs and Vanoir Lychee ice tea.
