Jean Philippe Patisserie - Bellagio


Jean Philippe Patisserie
at Bellagio
3600 Las Vegas Blvd South
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 693-8788

Before our trip, we actually saw an episode of Fabulous Cakes (Las Vegas edition too) on TLC that featured Jean Philippe and his chefs working on a wedding order. They still have the clip showing him making sugar flowers posted here.

Keep in mind that this isn't the last post about Jean Philippe. He was two locations in Las Vegas, both worth having a look at. The Bellagio location is smaller but features this:

Behold! The largest chocolate fountain in the world (certified by Guiness World Records)! The fountain goes from floor to ceiling behind the glass partition. I'm kind of glad that the glass is there to prevent any waste. Can you imagine if it was opened to the public? *shudder*


But don't worry, you can still get a piece of that chocolate!


Wedding cupcakes rotating on display. It is worth seeing some of their cake designs at this location, but it was very crowded both times we went. There are people snapping photos of the fountain and the lines go all around, making very little space for you to browse the displays and shelves.


The first time we stopped by, I didn't get anything at the Bellagio location because I was waiting to see the Aria location. We did eat desserts at Aria, but on our last day, I came back (this location was closer to our hotel) and got the carrot cake. I kept thinking about how delicate this carrot cake looked - I couldn't resist!


With mixed feelings, I finally sliced into the cake. I was excited to get a bite, but heartbroken that this little piece of art had to broken up into small slices. The filling inside the cake was still moist, you can see the nuts and carrots in it. That cake though, wow! So light, fluffy and delicate!

  1. Thank you for all the pictures! I didn't even know he has a second location, now we will check it out the next time we're in Vegas. Which I am hoping will be soon.
