A big fad right now are cupcake wedding cakes. Also popular are custom wedding cakes and custom groom cakes. With shows on television such as Cake Boss, DC Cupcakes and Ace of Cakes, many bridal couples are willing to spend extra money to have a one-of-a-kind wedding “cake”.
The most popular cupcake at Retro Bakery is the Hop Scotch. The Hop Scotch consists of vanilla cake topped with vanilla buttercream dipped in butterscotch ganache. The store is open Monday through Saturday and closed on Sundays.
Retro bakery can provide cake orders for weddings. However, give them a minimum of 2 weeks for custom orders or special cupcake toppers. Custom cupcakes start at $3 each or $36 per dozen. Custom wedding cakes are also available. Everyday cupcakes are $2.65 each. Custom cake prices are determined by size and intricacy of design.
Cupcake towers are available for rent. A 4-tier cupcake tower holds 70 cupcakes. A 5-tier cupcake tower holds 120 cupcakes. Either tower you can rent for a $40 fee.
The workers at Retro Bakery were very friendly and willing to answer any questions. The downfall of the bakery was that they had no printed information about providing cakes for weddings. We were instructed to go to their website.
Retro Bakery will deliver anywhere in the Las Vegas area, for an additional fee of $20. Otherwise, Retro Bakery is about 25 minutes NW of the Las Vegas Strip.
If you like buttercream cupcakes, then Retro Bakery is the place for you!
