Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my cupcakes last?
Retro Bakery cupcakes are meant to be eaten the day of purchase. There are no preservatives in our buttercream, Baby!
However, if you keep them in an air-tight container, they should stay fresh for at least a couple days. There is no need for refrigeration, but you need to keep them below 76 degrees.
(But, come on. Can YOU wait a couple days to eat your cupcakes? I didn’t think so.)
Retro is about 25 minutes NW of The FAMOUS Las Vegas Strip.
Do you offer delivery?
We offer delivery with at least 24 hours' notice. There is a $20 fee for deliveries to The Strip. Any delivery south of Mandalay Bay is $35. Delivery windows are as follows:
Mon-Thur: 11 am - 1pm (unless wedding/large event order or restaurant reservation)
Fri and Sat: 11 am - 1pm, 1 pm - 3 pm, or 3 pm- 5 pm
*Please note that we are NOT able to leave cupcakes or cakes with most hotels. You or someone in your party must be there to receive the delivery. However, we are able to drop your order at most restaurants around Las Vegas with a valid reservation.

How many people will one of Retro’s cakes feed?
Custom: It's up to YOU!
Do you write on the cupcakes?
We can write on cupcakes, but you gotta keep it short! Additional charges may apply.
Why don’t you have bread?
I don’t know how to bake bread…and our cupcakes ARE that good.
Do you do wedding cupcakes or special event cupcakes?
Yes! Please email, call us, or come in and talk to us about your event and we can create something VERY special for you! The more notice you give, the better; however, most orders under 70 total require 14 days notice. If you're planning an event more than 70, please give us at least one month's notice (especially if you're planning on having special custom designs made to top each cupcake).
We recommend A Little On the Top for special custom cupcake toppers.
We recommend Rice + Rye for invitations.
Can you make me an adult-themed cake for my bachelor/bachelorette party?
Retro doesn't do adult-themed or alcohol-themed cakes. There's too many kids runnin' around here!
Can I buy just one mini cupcake?
No. Mini's are sold by the dozen, but you can have TWO flavors per dozen for $12.
How do I join your CupcakEClub? And why would I?
Our CupcakEClub is EASY to join and you SHOULD join right away! If you had joined before, you would have received our previous emails of "4-Box/$4 day" and "$2 Tuesday" JUST to name a few!
Do you offer fund-raising opportunities?
YES! We have many ideas that can make LOTS of money for your organization or school! Please call us for details!
What’s YOUR favorite cupcake flavor?
Our favorites change daily (sometimes HOURLY), but right now Kari loves Pistachio, and Brian loves Drumstick.
Can I suggest a flavor?
ANY TIME! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea! We’ll let you know if it’s a WINNER with us!
Why are you guys closed for two weeks a year?
Retro is a proud, family-run business; we take two weeks of vacation a year to make sure to have some quality family time. We are usually closed one week at Christmas and one week during Summer (usually the end of June or beginning of July). We want to spend some time with our sweet children!
