The cake from the 1967 wedding of Elvis and Priscilla Presley at the Aladdin Hotel (now Planet Hollywood Resort) is being re-created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Las Vegas as the “wedding capital of the world.”
Carlo’s Bake Shop in The Venetian, from famed “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro, is replicating the 3-foot, six-tier confection inspired by the original Presley cake, which united yellow sponge cake, apricot preserves, kirsch Bavarian cream frosting and red marzipan roses.
The replica will be displayed at a Sept. 3 Caesars Palace event also featuring a show celebrating love and marriage, a mass renewal of vows by hundreds of couples and slices of cake separately prepared. Details/tickets: weddings.vegas/event.
