Retro Bakery opened in the Centennial Hills area of Las Vegas on February 10, 2008. At Retro, it's ALL about the buttercream, and Owners, Kari and Brian Haskell, mean it! Their goal is to create the most moist, most uniquely-flavored cupcakes and cakes you've ever eaten. Offering over 24 flavors of cupcakes baked fresh daily, Kari and Brian make sure that everyone will have a favorite!
"I just wanted to send a quick message saying how thankful I am to your team for such a positive and all-around awesome experience this week! I ordered cupcakes to be delivered to my best friend on her birthday and despite my complicated order, specific requests and delivery challenges you managed to make it all happen. I live all the way in Florida and have not been able to see my friend in nearly three years but the professionalism and attention to detail that your business exemplified made it possible for Ali & I to celebrate together despite the miles between us. Thank you so much for delivering such high quality and unique products, the birthday girl LOVED them all. Best of luck with your business but with the caliber of staff and quality of baked-goods that Retro has, you're going to be a Las Vegas staple for years and years to come :)"
"I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your cupcakes during our recent Vegas stay!
I had a group of seven friends in Vegas while my fiance and I got married this past weekend. My girlfriend, Lisa Swiontek, ordered a dozen of your delicious cupcakes (they were delivered to the Palms Place on the 23rd). OMG! I LOVED the glazed donut cupcaked and the sprinkle donut!!!!! I could have eaten 10! My husband and I were so appreciative of the quality of your product. Everyone loved them and it was a perfect treat after the ceremony... and paired wonderfully with the campagne!!!
Again, thank you! Everyone loved every single bite. I wish I could have tried every single flavor."
Lesley and Eric Pulse
"I wanted to say thank you for the awesome job you did on the cupcake tower I ordered. My sisters, friends, and I loved every cupcake!! Thank you so much for your great customer service. I hope to be able to order through you again in the future."
"I want to thank you for helping to make my daughter Stefanie's 24th birthday very special!
I ordered two dozen mini cupcakes, which Brian lovingly delivered to us at the Mirage. As directed, we refrigerated them overnight and they were PERFECT when we surprised Stef the next morning! And when I say perfect I mean they not only still looked great, but they tasted AMAZING!
So thank you for making this all work so easily and deliciously! I look forward to doing business with you again!"
"We had your cupcakes last month when we got remarried in Vegas! Ordered some to be delivered to our hotel for our small reception after the ceremony. They were absolutely awesome! The pictures still make my mouth water! Can't wait to get back to Vegas to try them again. Wish we had a bakery even close that equaled your cupcakes.
"Just wanted to provide you with some feedback from those lucky enough to receive the 4 packs [of cupcakes]. I send your “OUTRAGEOUSLY AWESOME CUPCAKES” and not only receive text messages from most recipients but had clients (some at pretty high levels) stop by the office to thank me and rave how great they were."

"The cake is even better than the icing. And the icing kicks butt. But the cake itself is wildly moist, without even the slightest hint of dryness."
