Let’s face it. Most of us will never live in the most expensive house or drive the best or most expensive car out there but most of us can indulge in the best desserts when in Las Vegas. So here is how it forking went for me. Also there is no need to worry about the calories because everyone knows, “What goes on in Vegas stays in Vegas.”
The first dessert of my Las Vegas trip was the famous Emeril’s Amazing Banana Cream Pie from Table 10 in Las Vegas. It’s so delicious with perfect flavors that even my husband who hates bananas thought this dessert was delicious. Everything about this dessert is perfect. The cake is rich and moist with the right amount of flavor. The sauce is made carefully and has a butterscotch quality to it. The bananas are just delicious. I never tasted bananas that good before and the chocolate curls just add the right texture and accent to the dessert. With out a doubt Emeril’s Banana Cream Pie is one of the forking best desserts in Las Vegas.
I didn’t actually get to try a dessert from Carlo’s Bakery made famous by TV Celebrity Buddy Valastro akaThe Cake Boss. I was forking amazed about the long wait to get in. No matter when you try to get in it’s always half hour or an hour wait just to try one of Buddy’s cupcakes. My photo doesn’t actually show how many people were waiting in the two long lines just to get into Carlo’s Bakery. I’m guessing at least a forking hundred people were forking waiting in line. They even had forking guards on to keep order. I did peak in to see what was being offered. I saw mainly only three kinds of desserts. Mostly cupcakes, biscotti, and cannoli.
Lemon pecan scone from II Fornaco at the New York New York Casino. This scone had a really nice lemony flavor and the pecans went really well to compliment the flavor. I thought it was slightly dense and dry but had good flavors.
The Chocolate Mousse Pistachio dessert sounded very good. Unfortunately it only sounded good. Tasted awful and forking went in the trash. The glaze was an offensive jello like chocolate goo, the pistachio cream was just flavorless sweet green cream and the mousse was too dense and too sweet with not a good chocolate flavor.
Les Tartes from L’Atelier were stunning and amazing. They were just little slices of heaven. Cream with high quality chocolate dust, Lemon cheese, Strawberry pistachio, orange meringue, and chocolate pie.
If you like desserts a must go to destination is jean Philippe in either the Aria and also in the Bellagio Casino/hotel. I tried a lemon meringue tart that was a pure perfection of flavors and beauty. The desserts are always over the top at Jean Philippe. The executive Chef Jean-Philoppe Maury is the official Best Pastry Chef in France and holds a Pastry Team Competition Gold Medal. Everything made at Jean Philippe is forking masterful, beautiful and delicious.
As you enter Jean Philippe at the Aria you always see a Chocolate Display.
It’s forking hard to believe that these are forking chocolate.
Thought I’d try the Wicked Spoon Buffet at the Cosmopolitan.
The Mini Desserts from the Wicked Spoon Buffet in Las Vegas look forking fantastic but I actually was only able to eat and finish one of these desserts. The strawberry and the fancy cone shaped dessert were made with cheap waxy chocolate that’s hard to stomach. The three tarts were ok but not worth eating. The only dessert that was delicious was the tiny lime cream puff.
Decided to go to the Bellagio and leave with a last memory of Jean Philippe desert.
I had a very perfect, very detailed blueberry cupcake. I almost gave up on cupcakes after trying several Food Network award winning cupcakes from various cupcake shops. But this Jean Philippe cupcake was amazing with blueberry flavors and many magical layers. Embellished with a tiny detailed white chocolate and a chocolate dipped and crisp wafered coated blueberry was a cupcake of heavenly moist perfect layer cake topped with blueberry puree, blueberry cream a white maybe slightly cheesed cream and more. It was just all perfect and a sweet ending to Las Vegas.
