Buddy Valastro’s world famous bakery, Carlo’s Bake Shop in Las Vegas, recently provided a glimpse of the recreation of Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s famous 1967 wedding cake, which was presented at the Wedding Capital of the World's 70th Anniversary Celebration at Caesars Palace.
The Sept. 3 event commemorated the first time Las Vegas was referred to as the “Wedding Capital of the World,” which occurred in an article the London Daily Herald published on Sept. 23, 1953.
The celebration featured a live production show paying tribute to seven decades of love stories in Las Vegas as well as a mass wedding vow renewal.
Inspired by the original cake’s dimensions and décor scheme, the Carlo’s Bake Shop version consisted of six tiers, measures more than 4 feet tall and was assembled over a span of two days. Decorative elements inspired by the original include red roses and white heart motifs.
The recreation was featured as a show cake during the celebration, alongside a life-size cutout of Elvis and Priscilla cutting their cake. Guests were able to take their photos beside this display.
Additionally, Carlo’s Bake Shop served individual slices of cake in flavors providing a fresh spin on the classic Presley cake during the event.
Priscilla, a 2023 film written, directed and produced by Sofia Coppola, was recently released. It follows the life of Priscilla Presley and her relationship with Elvis Presley, and is based on the 1985 memoir Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley (an executive producer of the film) and Sandra Harmon.
