Since 2005, the Las Vegas-based The Cupcakery's expert bakers have crafted nearly 40 innovative flavors. Their one constant? Well, besides everything always being delicious, they always use 100% fresh butter and cream cheese in their creations.
The Cupcakery's shortening-free selection caters to a pretty wide range of sweet teeth. If you're the mood for something elegant, try the champagne frosting that drenches the Kir Royale's raspberry cake. Want something a bit more refreshing? Look no further than the Grasshopper, a chocolate cake coated in mint-chocolate buttercream frosting. The baking crew is continuously experimenting, which explains their bizarre custom creations. Recent triumphs include tuxedoed cake pops, baby-shower assortments, and edible stilettos that offer much more support than real heels. Customers on any budget can also celebrate nuptials with a wedding cake, whether it be free from gluten or sugar. The Cupcakery will deliver to the entire Vegas valley.
Babycakes Cafe sustains eager brunch-munchers with a selection of breakfast and lunch fare from the classic to the anomalous. Daredevilish diners can roll out their tongue ramps for the red-velvet pancakes, which come topped with chocolate crumbles and thick whipped cream, sidekicked with cream-cheese syrup ($5.25–$7.95). If more savory fare beseeches your belly, feel free to nosh on Babycakes' traditional breakfast offerings such as country-fried steak and eggs ($10.95) or huevos rancheros ($9.95), all served with a choice of baby cakes, toast, or a scoop of white rice.
While other frozen yogurt stores charge customers for every flavor or topping ordered, Menchie’s customers serve themselves an unlimited customizable mix of yogurt and toppings. Menchie’s has a convenient self-serve station with more than 100 rotating yogurt flavors and more than 60 rotating toppings, including fresh fruit.
Regularly considered one of Las Vegas’ best breakfast spots, The Cracked Egg is something of a Valley institution, with four locations throughout the city. This Northwest outpost sits inside a strip mall that faces Cheyenne Avenue, with a bit of front side patio space for outdoor seating when the days aren’t too warm. The specialty inside the sunny, friendly space is eggs, always eggs; served as an eggs benedict or fluffy omelet, or scrambled alongside skillets of fresh breakfast meat, the namesake egg is this eatery’s most popular choice by far. The coffee cake is a best seller too, of course, as are the pancakes, waffles and housemade corned beef hash, but the perpetually smiling staff will always recommend something with eggs – and for good reason.
Lacia McKee is known to her friends and loyal employees as "The Cake Diva." As she recently admitted on TLC's Fabulous Cakes, the nickname comes from her tendency to be "OCD in the kitchen." But you won't hear anybody complain about working alongside the owner of HottCakez Of Las Vegas. After all, they get to be part of the extravagant cakes she creates.
One such cake was recently showcased on TLC?actually, it was more like six cakes. Inspired by red-carpet glamor, the centerpiece was a fondant evening gown sparkling with sugar jewels. Grouped around the gown were smaller red-velvet and chocolate cakes molded to resemble accessories such as a shoe box, a hat box, and even a dog.
This level of detail is par for the course at HottCakez, which also recently produced a classic three-tiered wedding cake encrusted with jewels. For a dessert that's slightly more understated?in stature, if not in style?try the handcrafted cupcakes. Wedding cakes of all sizes are crafted in traditional or contemporary styles, and the staff at HottCakez strives to capture the style of the bridge and groom in the cake-making process, while welcoming any ideas and even photos of a desired cake.
