Until legislators legalize the construction of cake hotels with lickable icing walls, our pastry constructions will always fit in our pockets. Start a pocket megalopolis with today's Groupon: $5 for $15 worth of baked confections at Freed's Bakery. Stop by either of Freed's two South Eastern Avenue locations and stalk the cookies, cakes, and cupcakes like a fiercely sugar-toothed saber-tooth tiger.
Before Vegas was a casino town, it was a caking town, and Freed's chef was sheriff. Use this Groupon toward your wedding cake or one of Freed's renowned Vegas cakes. Today's Groupon easily pays for a pound of Freed's fresh-baked cookies ($13.95 per pound); flavors include rocky-road bars, mint chocolate chip, and rainbow. Freed's also offers raspberry rum cakes, strawberry shortcakes, and a Belgian chocolate and whipped-cream piece of glory called Le Parisien by the slice ($3.75–$4.75). Or choose one of Freed's big and beautiful cupcakes.
There's bound to be a turnover, coffee cake, or macaroon that harmonizes with your belly's natural frequency and creates a perfectly tasty, totally tuned, flour-and-sugar tone. Famous dessert folk including Sylvester Stallone, Cher, Johnny Carson, Hugh Hefner, Andre Agassi, and the famous golfer Tiger Woods have treated their taste buds to decadent delights from Freed's. Ms. Martha Stewart even mentioned the bakery in her Weddings magazine, and The Food Network has stopped by to capture the bakery's charm with video cameras and a savory blend of Al Roker and Rachael Ray.
Freed's bakery delights have been featured in Bon Appétit and Martha Stewart's Weddings. The New York Times even mentioned the bakery despite the coastal difference, and so have other publications. Readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal named Freed’s the Best Bakery of Las Vegas.
