Why does anyone say vanilla is plain? The scent of vanilla alone is so alluring and sweet that it's artificially created in candles and air fresheners by the millions. Take away the middle man and make your whole world smell (and taste) like vanilla the good old-fashioned way: by baking up dozens of moist, fragrant baked goods! If there was ever any doubt, this assortment of cupcakes, cookies, and other sugary confections will prove just how exceptional vanilla really is.
