Vanille Patisserie, 5229 S. Harper Court, will host a free cake social in Hyde Park on Friday, Feb. 2, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Hyde Park community,” said Sophie Evanoff, president of Vanille Patisserie. “The fun-filled evening is a chance for neighbors to gather, learn more about Vanille and eat some great cake.”
The event will feature music from DJ Craig Elliott, free cake samples, cupcake decorating for children and a cakewalk every 30 minutes. The patisserie will also award one guest a gift certificate for a custom cake valued at $250.
Vanille’s cakewalk is similar to a game of musical chairs. Cakewalk participants will walk around in a circle while music plays. When the music stops, the person standing on a designated spot will win a free cake.
Vanille offers a selection of signature celebration cakes that fuse tradition with modern inspiration and innovative flavor pairings. Custom cakes can be designed for any occasion and the cake social will allow guests to sample Vanille’s innovative flavor pairings.
