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 one of today’s Cirque du Soleil casts. The concept may be similar, but the execution continues to evolve.
Taking a cue from our flashy environment (even if we are in the desert!) – we bake tiered masterpieces for weddings, birthdays, and all sorts of special life events, featuring just a small touch of shine – or when called for, enough sparkly décor to rival the effect of a mirrored disco ball. (one of the really big ones)
A bride so enamored of her wedding gown she wants to showcase the design in the cake. A major anniversary that should rightly feature a ‘diamond’ effect (and seriously, 60 years doing ANYthing fairly screams for diamonds to be tossed at you!). A Quinceañera celebration where the baked centerpiece should be as bright and full of life as the debutante herself. All these are certainly deserving of sparkling décor. But then again, we locals seem to think that pretty much any reason to have a party in Las Vegas is worthy of gold, silver and plenty of bling. (Yeah – we’re a flashy bunch here.) If there’s anything in short supply here in Las Vegas, it’s modesty.
