Sharp's Bakery is famous for their vanilla slice which has recently been crowned the best in Australia! Not only does the bakery have divine vanilla slice but a whole array of freshly baked bread, cakes and pies! For more informaiton about the award winning vanilla slice, click the full description link below! 


Sharp's Bakery has won the ultimate prize in the Great Australian Vanilla Slice Triumph.

Sharp's have entered this notorious competition for the past ten years and every year they have been getting closer to wining this esteemed award. In the past three years they have been third and last year they were only one point behind. With some minor changes to their custard recipe they have now taken out this prestigious award.

Former Premier Jeff Kennett declared that "The pursuit of the best vanilla slice baker in Australia should be of great national interest. I encourage bakers throughout Australia to rise up and pit their skills against their peers..."   The challenge has been met by Bakers from all over Victoria and South Australia since 1998 and the event has continued to provide an avenue for all of the Vanilla Slice Bakers in the land to put their skills to the test.

The judges eyeball, smell, taste, savor and spit out each vanilla slice with all the snobbery you'd expect of wine connoisseurs. Each entry is given a score out of ten for symmetry, volume, color, taste and mouth-feel. Chief Judge Jason Riley, the SA Area Manager for EOI Peerlesss Foods was very complimentary of Sharp's Bakers and was very pleased that they had finally taken out the award after being so close for several years.

Sharp's have always operated a very efficient business with great quality produce and in recent months they have expanded and rejuvenated their premises and are now offering an extended range of dining delights to their loyal customers. 

The win is fantastic for Sharps and also for the whole Birchip community as travelers plan their route around ‘Great Vanilla Slice'.  They have always been great supporters of the community at large and local community events. Congratulations to the Sharps and all of their employees.
