Surely you didn't think I'd go to Las Vegas and not visit a cupcake shop? Well I did. Twice. The first day I went it wasn't open, that was disappointing as business hours weren't posted on the screen. But we didn't give up and came back on our last day to see the cases filled with cupcakes:

Lots of different flavours to choose from, let's take a closer look!

Here were some of my top contenders, Strawberry Shortcake: strawberry cake with heavy cream and strawberry buttercream.

The Coco Frauline that looks like a giant Ferrero Rocher is a devil's food cake with German chocolate filling, iced with ganache and covered with chopped pecans.

Always present, Southern Belle: red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

Peanutbutter Jammer: peanut butter cake with grape jelly filling and peanut butter topping.

The Julius: orange and pineapple cake with orange buttercream. Well, I haven't seen this one around before!

The Julius it is!

The cupcake smelled good, just like an orange smoothie from... well Orange Julius! The cake was moist and while I didn't find orange chunks, I did find the pineapple ones. The buttercream was smooth and worked very well with the cake. Notice that there's edible disco dust on top, everything is flashier in Vegas!


  1. My dream shop ... one day I'll own a business like that lol
