Drink Up!

Added on: May 12, 2015

261 - Guinness Draught

  Did you know that the tune for our national anthem was originally that of an old English drinking song? (Really – we don’t make these things up.) Considering the effort and creativity that goes into beverages here in the U.S., that might just make a lot of sense. (Or maybe it was the other […]

For Those Who Serve

Added on: May 5, 2015

1381 - Armed Forces

We bet you didn’t know that during World War II, over 12% of the U.S. population served in the military. That’s a pretty interesting fact, we think. Of course, different times required larger sacrifices, but all of us owe a debt to that 12% and everything that they accomplished for our country.   And while […]

Wedding Cakes In One Tier

Added on: April 28, 2015

1364 - White-Wedding

  It might be hard for some brides to believe in this day and age of reality shows that cover the best and the worst of All Things Wedding – from Bridezillas to My Fair Wedding and beyond – but sometimes, the best weddings are small, intimate affairs from a handful of guests to just […]

Those Early Birthdays – Don’t Ya Just Love ‘Em?

Added on: April 21, 2015

A Pirate Turns One

  You’ve had the wedding (and the wedding cake), you moved on to the baby shower (and the baby shower cake), you graduated to the “welcome new baby!” stage (yeah, there’s a cake for that, too!) — and now, it’s time to start making some new memories . . . the ones that happen every […]

The Power of TMNT

Added on: February 3, 2015

1443 - Turtle Power

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.   Yeah – like you really read that to yourself four times in a row without tripping over your tongue!  <smirk>   But no matter – because the TMNT will still rock! After all, they’ve been going […]

“Frozen” In Time

Added on: February 2, 2015

Frozen Again

  Oh, “Let It Go” already! (Be honest now, you know you’ve heard that song about 287 gajillion times, right?)   But the thing is, “Frozen” is now a part of our culture. Our heritage. Our personal anthology. Of our really awesome collection of animated Disney videos that we’ll be watching and sharing with our […]

Birthdays – Las Vegas Style

Added on: November 14, 2014

1703 - Birthday Vegas Style

  Oh, yeah – we know how to P-A-R-T-A-Y in Las Vegas! As we’ve shown you before, we make plenty of cakes that combine our worldwide claim to fame (we mean gambling, not divorces) with celebrating birthdays – Las Vegas-style.  (See the little Minions? Being corrupted by gambling chips and die?)   But because there’s […]

Critters Turned Into Cakes

Added on: November 7, 2014

1869 - Baby Stego

Who says cakes have to be round or square? We have fun turning some of our favorite animated, furry or legendary characters into just the sweetest things. (get it? sweetest….?) And we seem to be doing that a lot lately. (After all, lots of birthdays take place after those cold winter months, right?)  So we […]

11 Wedding & Wedding Cake Historical Trivia Facts

Added on: November 2, 2014

1751 - The Tower

  When a bride and groom are in the midst of planning the event for the most important day of their lives, it’s easy to get caught up in the minutiae of meeting everyone’s expectations – whether or not any of them actually make sense or have a logical place in ‘tradition.’ We’ve all been […]

The Zombies Are Coming (in just 4 days!)

Added on: October 27, 2014

1263 - Zombie Apocalypse

  It’s only a matter of hours now until the make-believe zombies will be mingling with the real ones, wandering our streets on October 31. And how are you going to tell the difference of who’s (a) real (zombie) – and who’s not?  Well, you might need to do a bit of light reading to […]

Cakes For Football Fans

Added on: October 20, 2014

1792 - Houston Texans

  If you’re anything like us, you’ve been looking forward to fall – if for nothing else, the great sports contests that we get to watch this time of year. We’re willing to bet (based on our customers, anyway) that a whole bunch of folks who celebrate their birthdays between September and January have had […]

Spooky Cakes Are On The Loose

Added on: October 10, 2014

Dark Gossamer - #1521

Everyone at Pastry Palace is here year-round (really – 365 days – bet you didn’t know that!) making fabulous confections for brides, birthdays and beautiful events, we must confess that we get to have the most fun in our kitchen crafting weird, wacky and wonderful designs […]

Cakes That Sparkle

Added on: April 30, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas Cake #1547 - Pink White and Sparkle

Maybe it’s the town. Las Vegas is sort of famous for its glitz and glamour, after all. There’s really nothing else quite  like a Vegas showgirl sporting bling and feathers. Of course, all that glitters and shines does have a tendency to evolve over time. It’s kind of like comparing a  Folies Bergère revue with […]

Fabulous Flowers

Added on: April 29, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas Cake #1625 - Masterpiece

Flowers on a cake. Sounds sort of classic, doesn’t it? (or did I mean boring?) As cake designs go, we all know that for generations it was mostly an assortment of icing roses in shades tinted to match the event. That was then.   Today, the use of lifelike, handmade, artistic blooms are used to […]

Off-the-Wall Wedding Cakes

Added on: April 16, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas Cake #1281 - Till Death Do Us Part

  If you’re in the wedding business, you’ve just got to love David Tutera. Not only does he create fantastic wedding environments for the couples chosen to be on his show – but he finds ways to express their dreams in real life – often in ways they never even imagined possible. Let’s face it […]

Kid Cakes (Almost) Too Cute To Eat!

Added on: April 9, 2014

Pastry Palace Kids Cake #1569 - Rapunzel, Rapunzel

(Seriously? How impossibly cool is the “Rapunzel, Rapenzel” cake shown above? One of our personal favs.)   What two things go more perfectly together than “Kids and Birthday Cakes”? Not only do parents take special care to make sure every birthday is celebrated with cake, we also have to make sure that it’s just the […]

Spring Wedding Cakes

Added on: April 4, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas Cake #922 - Spring Bouquets

Plans to enjoy their outdoor nuptials while the weather is lovely and perfect for their once-in-a-lifetime wedding.   So it seemed the perfect time for us […]

Who Doesn’t Love Cupcakes?

Added on: April 2, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas Cupdakes #1359 - Lavender Bow

There’s something about a cupcake…..it conjures up memories from childhood, or heck – even recent weddings – because one thing you can say about cupcakes is that they belong Everywhere! No longer relegated to the “It’s-My-Mom’s-Turn-To-Bring-Cupcakes-To-Class” genre, because we we all know, decorators have been putting their talents to the test in recent years designing […]

It’s All About The Handbag

Added on: April 1, 2014

Vuitton & MAC (1624)

  Designer handbags – what woman doesn’t covet them? Even though the costs of some of the ‘real thing’ can boggle the mind (think anything Hermès) – there’s still that allure, that special look that tells everyone at a glance “Wow, she sure spent a lot on that handbag!” – Oh wait, that wasn’t what […]

Minions Everywhere!

Added on: March 11, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas - Birthday Cake #1581 - Despicable Me, Party of One

  Minions!  You don’t even have to see the movie to appreciate the appeal of these little guys. (But if you haven’t “Despicable Me” and its sequel are great films!)  These tiny yellow cylindrical creatures (will that be one eye, or two?) have gained so quickly and massively in popularity, that they’re scheduled to have […]

Kids’ Birthday Cakes (or maybe, just for the “Kid” in you!)

Added on: March 5, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas - Kids Cake #1569 - Rapunzel, Rapunzel!

  Who wants to grow up, anyway? It’s sort of funny how nature seems to have it all backwards sometimes. Kids want to be “all grown up” – and a lot of us adults just want the freedom to ‘act like kids’ again. Go figure. But when it comes to gathering friends and family together […]

16 Adorable Baby Shower Cakes

Added on: February 24, 2014

Pastry Palace Las Vegas - Baby Shower Cake #1252 - Noah's Ark

    It makes sense that you’re planning to have just 1 cake at your upcoming baby shower event – but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be FABulous – or that you shouldn’t still have lots of ideas and designs to choose from!  Because the one thing we don’t ever do at Pastry Palace is […]

Spring Wedding Cakes

Baby Showering!

Added on: February 13, 2014

Pink and Petite (1375)

  It may not seem like it in much of the country, but here in the desert southwest, you can almost feel Spring in the air already. And that’s the sort of thing that just brings to mind new life, new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has– oh wait. Wrong blog. But seriously, […]

Say “Hello Kitty!” – She’s Everywhere!

Added on: September 27, 2013

Pastry Palace Las Vegas - Cake 736 - Hello Kitty!

  Kitty-chan – who doesn’t love this bright and kind-hearted bobtail friend? What begin back in 1974 as one of many Japanese animation characters has literally evolved into a global phenomenon bringing in over $5 billion annually. That is a LOT of Hello Kitty trinkets, right?   You might think so, but in fact, Kitty-chan’s […]
