Massive Birthday Cake to Mark Milestone Bacchanal Buffet Birthday
To celebrate its first birthday, the bakers at Bacchanal have created a massive cake that will be on display throughout September. A team of chefs spent six days creating decorations made from 150 pounds of fondant to adorn the 5’ x 5’ x 5’ cake.
The 10 layer cake includes a layer representing each of the nine kitchens plus one touting the awards collected so far. A “glass” chandelier made from spun sugar serves as the cake’s topper and each of Bacchanal’s design elements – wood, steel and glass – are represented throughout the layers.
Bacchanal features up to 15 daily specials, over 100 dishes total, inspired by the season and products available. Guests have been surprised by specials like braised rabbit, seafood risotto and Osso Bucco.
Some specials that have been met with extraordinary guest response have become permanent fixtures on the menu. To celebrate Bacchanal’s first birthday, each week in September five new dishes will be introduced that will be staples on the menu.
Bacchanal has amassed a collection of awards in its first year including best buffet in Las Vegas by USA Today, Las Vegas Review Journal, Eating Las Vegas and Las Vegas Weekly; best desserts in the city by Vegas Seven; Stone-Cold Stunner by Eater Las Vegas and Surprise of the Year by Desert Companion.
In addition to the 3,500 guests served daily on average, Bacchanal has hosted film legends like Morgan Freeman, renowned chefs including Guy Savoy and Gordon Ramsay, heartthrob Bradley Cooper and super model Tyra Banks.
As a thank you to locals for their loyal support in the first year, local guests will be treated to complimentary line passes every Wednesday in September with a Nevada ID. Ordinarily, guests can purchase a line pass for $15 per person.
