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.

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.

After traveling from the end of the rainbow to the tip of the North Pole, Easter's original hippity-hoppity star is now claiming seasonal residence at the Tyson Corner Center, Arundel Mills Mall, Potomac Mills Mall, Lakeforest Mall and Marley Station. As both an adorable and educational animal, the bunny associated with Easter will be helping kids get into the spirit of egg-hunting by teaming up with professional photographers who know how to coax giggle-laden smiles out of any bundle of joy. Children can pose with the gregarious giant, embracing fluff-filled hugs, and then later enjoy their shared moments by flipping through their tangible, printed portraits and by fluttering their eyelids at their vibrant, digitally arrested stills.
With more than 25 years of experience as a chef in Las Vegas and Louisiana, Hott Cakez owner and sweets queen Lacia McKee fuses Southern comfort with Las Vegas glamour to craft seductive gourmet sweets. Though this artistically inclined confectionary specializes in crafting unique and personalized wedding cakes with a flair for drama, today’s deal lets Groupon holders nab a taste of affordable luxury by sinking their teeth into a dozen strawberries that have been dipped in delicious molten cocoa, rendering them virtually indistinguishable to the vegetables they once were. Though equally Valentine-appropriate as flowers or teddy bears, these chocolate-dipped morsels hold the advantage of being infinitely more edible and are only slightly less fun to snuggle with, making them a perfect gift for a sweet loved one this February 14, or a perfect “surprise” for an angry loved one this February 15.
Puppy dogs. Basketball shoes. A bottle of fine liquor. A mother unicorn and her baby. These are just some of the cakes customized for weddings and other events from the inside out by the Pastry Palace's bakers and treat sculptors. While the staff works from a long list of standard flavors for the cake, filling, and icing, they've been known to create custom flavors according to the client's needs, whims, or all-purple food diet. They can even accommodate the culinary criteria of customers who adhere to vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free diets. The bakery also extends its talents to other baked goods, such as cookies, cupcakes, and other pastries.
