I decided to try Retro Bakery because it got some rave reviews on yelp (vegas =P). Walking in, the bakery is very clean and decorated a la retro style with classic phone, fridge and all. Looking at the cupcakes, they’re pretty, but the Cupcakery still wins hands down with overall presentation.
The Red Carpet Cupcake, a.k.a red velvet. – Moist overall. I’m not sure if the cupcake top was kind of dry from the hot drive home or from sitting at room temperature for a couple hours? Cream cheese frosting has a unique almond extract flavor. Interesting? yes. Haven’t decided if I like it or not.
Conclusion: An okay option for Northeast Las Vegas if you have no where else to go. Beats Just Cupcakes down the street on Durango, but that’s not much of a competition.
