Halloween Treats at Two Las Vegas Pâtisseries

nevada_lasvegas_patisserieCandy makers love Halloween for all the usual reasons, but Jean Philippe Pâtisserie has taken the holiday creations to a whole new level.

Road Trips Foodies in Las Vegas, Nevada, this month will want to check out the Bellagio and ARIA locations of the pastry shop. From gory and gruesome body parts to whimsical cakes and pastries, the displays at both reflect the spirit of the celebration.

Executive Pastry Chef Claude Escamilla and his team spent eight months creating more than 45 showpieces that place the, ahem, undead at center stage.

ARIA’s main showpiece is a 200-pound, six-foot-tall male zombie made out of chocolate and rolling fondant — perfect for selfies. Another is a life-size skeleton perched in a chocolate electric chair. This design took the team more than 70 hours to complete, using approximately 130 pounds of white and dark chocolate.

A zombie showgirl is the main focal point at Bellagio. Standing alongside a rundown “Welcome to Las Vegas Sign” and in a mountain of rubble made from cookie and sugar pieces, she was created using nearly 160 pounds of chocolate and 75 pounds of rolling fondant.

Scary zombie heads, wicked jack-o’-lanterns and other holiday-inspired delights decorate both shops, each creating complete Halloween scenes.

Although you can’t buy the zombies, you can take home spider cupcakes and chocolate ghosts.
