So yummy and so very Vegas!
The Sugar Factory opened up a few months ago on the strip at the front of the Paris Casino. The Sugar Factory has already become one of the favorite places to go on the Las Vegas Strip. Sweet tooth? Go to the Sugar Factory! Any sweet craving that you have can be satisfied at the Sugar Factory.
There is a sidewalk window at the Sugar Factory that offers gelato, sorbet and ice cream treats and there is a comfortable outdoor seating area. An ice cream cone and people watching on the Las Vegas Strip is a nice combination! This walk up ice cream vending shop will be a plus when the desert temperature maxes out this summer.
There is a huge modern candy store at the Sugar Factory that was very popular during the holiday shopping season. Imagine a five pound Gummy Bear as Christmas gift! Yes, the Sugar Factory candy shop has five pound Gummy Bears! Designer hard candy lollipops and artisan candies of every kind are available at the candy shop. Edible lip tattoos and lip glitter can be purchased at the candy shop for that totally Vegas look when going to night clubs. That is a sweet kissin' treat!
There is a very trendy restaurant at the Sugar Factory that offers pizza, appetizers, entrees, sandwiches and of course desserts. Fondue is on the menu! Chocolate fondue is perfect for a romantic Valentines Day dessert. The restaurant has a view of the Las Vegas Strip and the Bellagio Fountains. The restaurant is stylish casual and it looks like a nice atmosphere for enjoying a great dessert.
The stars of Vegas, Hollywood and the music world have all been seen at the Sugar Factory. The Sugar Factory creates decadent lollipop desserts that are named after stars. These are no ordinary candy lollipops. The pops are made with some nice gourmet flavors, fillings and really nice quality chocolates.
The Sugar Factory dessert and pastry shop is located between the restaurant and the candy store. The variety of the ice cream, sorbet and gelato selection at the dessert shop has a few more offerings than the outdoor ice cream shop window. Gourmet milkshakes, signature sundaes and ice cream cones are offered at the dessert shop.
The dessert shop has a large selection of great desserts. The presentation of the Sugar Factory desserts are decadently created with Las Vegas style. The desserts looked awesome! The gourmet cupcakes looked unbelievably rich! The cakes and pastries looked like a modern pastry chef was given the "green light" to create some very eye catching desserts. The quality of the desserts all looked to be very nice.
I decided to do a second dessert after my day of taking pictures of the Chinese New Year display across the street. I'm not much of an American style heavy cheese cake fan, but the cheese cake at the dessert shop in the Sugar factory looked out of this world! So, I ordered a slice of cheese cake.
Plain cheese cake sure doesn't sound too interesting to most people. Plain cheese cake is what I ordered. At the Sugar Factory, nothing is "Plain Jane"! The cheese cake was lavishly decorated and topped with silver and gold pearls. The pearls were made of chocolate and they were hollow in the middle. A dark chocolate twist was also placed on top of the cheese cake. This slice of cheese cake had a very classy modern look!
Fresh whipped sweet cream accompanied the cheese cake. The whipped cream had no sugar in it and it was very refreshing. Sugar wasn't always added to whipped cream in the old days. The plain whipped cream was meant to accompany the sweetness of the dessert.
The graham cracker crust had a great flavor. The plain cheese cake had a very nice pleasant mellow flavor that was not overly sweet. The cheese could be tasted and I liked how the cheese flavor was not overpowered. The texture was rich and heavy like classic American cheese cake.
I really "hit the wall" of too much dessert, while eating this slice of decadent rich cheese cake! My tummy kept saying "You really did it this time! Two desserts in one day and you just had to choose cheese cake as the second dessert!"
I sat and finished my slice of cheese cake and I pretty much tossed my dinner plans out the window. The incredibly rich cheese cake at the Sugar Factory really filled me up. I was happy that the cheese cake was not overly sweetened like many American cheese cakes usually are. Being borderline diabetic, I really do appreciate the european touch of not adding too much sugar to a dessert.
The cheese cake at the Sugar Factory was great! I only recommend the cheese cake for those who have no plans to eat dinner or anything else the rest of the day! The Sugar Factory cheese cake is heavy and rich. It took seven hours for me to get my dinner appetite back!
I definitely recommend the Sugar Factory for anyone that has a craving for something sweet. The Sugar Factory offers every sweet treat imaginable and more! Delicious! ... Shawna
