Gourmet cupcakes in Vegas?

Can anyone recommend any gourmet cupcake specialty shops in Vegas, especially any that might be willing to deliver to a hotel on the strip? Something similar in quality to Sprinkles or the Vanilla Bake Shop in LA.

    1. Retro has been solid for a few years now, great cookies too. They do deliver to the strip for a $20 surcharge, but their cupcakes are about 50c less than everyone elses so if you're ordering a couple dozen, no biggie. Great flavor choices, don't miss the "Pucker Up", the "Brownie Sundae" and the "Coffee and Donuts".

        The 20 buck surcharge may seem high, but keep in mind they are waaayyy out in the northwestern suburbs so it seems reasonable to me (Retro is a good 20 miles from the strip, maybe more). Very good.....

          BTW, I wanted a treat for my hubbie's birthday last night but knew that we would never eat an entire cake. So I made the trek out to Retro (I just went home from work the long way:-)...and he LOVED the cupcakes! I couldn't decide on flavors so I got three, and we ended up splitting all three. Coconut, Mocha chocolate, and strawberry-and-chocolate. As I suspected it would be, the coconut was both of our favorite:-) But all were very good; the cake is very moist and the buttercream is fantastic. Definitely a good choice!

            I have never tried one of them but GiGi's Cupcakes now has a second location in Las Vegas location at the newly remodeled Plaza Hotel & Casino downtown. Gigi's has 30 varieties of cupcakes.

              I get cupcakes from GiGi's on Flamingo once in a while, always very good.

     time try the PUCKER UP and the BROWNIE SUNDAE cupcake.

        2. There is also Sin City Cupcakes. My wife and I ordered for our anniversary. Alcohol infused cupcakes delivered for free to the Venetian on the Strip. Real wide variety.
