Las Vegas Bakery for Custom Birthday Cake

Coming to Vegas and celebrating a birthday at Delmonico. I need to order a cake from a local bakery to bring in for the party. Delmonico has suggested Freeds. I visited their web site and I'm not sure their cakes fit the bill. Look like traditional wedding cakes - lots of buttercream, pretty basic types - chocolate, white ete. I was looking for something a bit more exiting. Any ideas of a local bakery that would fit the bill and deliver to the Venetian?

  1. Freeds has great cakes, just about anything you want. Also Diamond bakery in China Town on Spring Mountain is really good. I don't know about delivery though.

    1. Here are two other places to try....

      Amato's Bakery


      Leopolds Bakery

      both do wonderful cakes...don't know about delivery....

      1. I agree with Freeds.

        Click on the birthday cakes link. GREAT cake!

        1. You might consider Layers, in Green Valley, although I don't know if they deliver; for very high end and beautiful cakes, I would call the patesserie at the Bellagio, Jean Phillippe. I have seen the most spectacular cakes in there. I am not a huge Freed's fan, but many people swear by it.

            We thought Freeds was awful, didn't have cake there however.

          2. They make great cakes at Chocolat at Wynn too. I had one made for my Husband's 50th Birthday. He likes Chocolate so I went with all chocolate and chocolate filling but they do other stuff too. But, their chocolate is so good. I didn't think it was that expensive for the quality and what you get. I even bought a few chocolates from the shop and had them add them to the decor on top of the cake. I like it when they do the bows on top his was done in a copper color, the icing, and it was beautiful and sophisticated.

            On another note, I am a fan of the Mexican Tres Leche cakes and I had a half sheet made for a friend leaving work. It was delicious, decorated fun and not so sophisticated more everyday cake like but they did put fresh strawberries on top which was nice, but you can't beat that moist delicious cake! Best cake I ever had. But, I'm more of a custard fan than a real cake fan, so I appreciate the moistness. The bakery I got it from was called like Maria's or something they have a I and II. The name was simple sorry I can't remember it exactly, but I think it was Maria's Mexican Bakery, I believe it was on the corner of Dessert Inn and Tropicana? I think that's right. They have lunch there too, and of course the Mexican breads. Half sheet $50.00. None leftover!

              The bakery we have used for Tres Leches is Mariana's. They have multiple locations in the valley, but to my knowledge they don't deliver. There is one on Flamingo & Eastern.
