One in a recurring series of tips about fun things to do while you’re at the NAB Show.

If you’re out driving, or coming into town from the northwest, stop by Retro Bakery for a sinfully delicious sugar rush worthy of its Las Vegas Zip code.

At Retro Bakery it’s all about the buttercream. Its moist and flavorful cupcakes are the standout item at the shop, and with flavors such as Milk and Cookies, Glazed Donut and the #1 bestselling Hop Scotch (vanilla cake topped with vanilla buttercream dipped in butterscotch ganache) it’s not hard to see why. Twitter fans: Retro has been known to offer free cupcakes or cookies for a day if you mention the tweet.

Additional highlights include seasonal flavors offered for a limited time such Pucker Up (raspberry cake topped with lemon buttercream); Hot Chocolate (chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache and topped with marshmallow buttercream); and Creamsicle (Vanilla cake topped with orange and vanilla swirled buttercream).

Cupcakes are $2.65 a piece or $29 for a dozen. Retro Bakery delivers anywhere in Vegas for $20, no minimum order. Open Mon. to Thurs. 8–6, Fridays 8–7 and Saturdays 10–6; closed Sundays.
