Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get half a dozen standard cupcakes at Caked Las Vegas(an $18 value) on South Maryland Parkway. Featured on TLC's Fabulous Cakes, Caked Las Vegas is a boutique bakery that hand-makes its pastries from scratch daily, specializing in inventive cupcakes free of hydrogenated oils or fats. Feel free to choose from an expansive menu of moist cakes slathered with buttercream or chocolate icing. Fruit lovers can enjoy a jaw-juicing jungle of confections like the pineapple, strawberry, or passion fruit, concocted from fresh produce and citrus zests by orangutans in lab coats. Vanilla cakes spring from fresh Tahitian vanilla beans, while chocolate choices like mint or triple chocolate melt with bittersweet Swiss morsels. Meanwhile, bipartisan desserters can cross the aisle in style with the Neapolitan (chocolate cake with vanilla and strawberry buttercream).
Yelpers give Caked Las Vegas an average of 4.5 stars and say:
- The cake parts are moist and delicious. The icing parts are thick, creamy, and just the right amount of sweetness. And there's always so many flavors to choose from. – Samantha G.
- Awesome cupcakes. Shouldn't even be in the same category as a regular cupcake. The cream is a butter cream that isn't overwhelmingly sweet. its light and fluffy. The cake part is moist and delicious. – Kahn K.
