The Mardi Gras celebration will culminate on Tuesday, Feb. 21, and Sugar Factory at Paris Las Vegas wants to join in on the fun by offering a sugary spin on the classic festival tradition of a King Cake. On “Fat Tuesday,” Sugar Factory will sell individual King Cupcakes, priced at $6, for one day only, in honor of the outrageously jovial holiday.
In keeping with the festive Mardi Gras King Cake custom, Sugar Factory will hide a small surprise in just one of the cupcakes offered that day. The guest who purchases the prized cupcake will receive a $100 Sugar Factory gift certificate. The winning guest must bring the hidden prize to a Sugar Factory Paris manager to redeem the certificate.
Sugar Factory’s deliriously decadent cupcakes are house-made and baked fresh by Pastry Chef, Ana Funes. Chef Funes has been in the baking and sweets business since 2005, working in such fine establishments as Wolfgang Puck’s Spago and the luxurious SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills after graduating from The Art Institute of Los Angeles.
As the Pastry Chef for Sugar Factory and Sugar Factory American Brasserie, Funes has the opportunity to roll up her sleeves and truly express her creativity. Some of her responsibilities include coming up with new and inventive confections, creating vibrant and impressive cakes for the eatery’s frequent celebrity guests and overseeing every scrumptious cupcake, cookie, tart and pastry sold in the restaurant.
Sugar Factory isn’t your average sweet spot. It has become an instant hit across the country – offering everyone a sweet escape. Sugar Factory currently has stores located at The Mirage Resort & Casino, Miracle Mile Shops inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and Paris Las Vegas. Sugar Factory’s newest location will open at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in March 2012.
