Wynn Las Vegas chief cake designer Flora Aghababyan now has her own bakery in Chinatown, Cakes de la Flore. The pastry chef studied in Russian and Armenian bakeries before moving to Hollywood to design cakes at Chalet Pastry in Hollywood. She then made the move to Las Vegas to be the chief cake designer at the Bellagio. Past clients have included Michael Jordan, Celine Dion, Hugh Hefner, Sammy Sosa, Mel Gibson, Jennifer Lopez and more.

She won a World Grand Prize in the Grand National Wedding Cake Competition in Tulsa, Okla., in 2010 and was nominated as one of the top 10 cake artists in North America in 2012 by Dessert Professional magazine.

So far, fancy cakes and pastries are the calling cards here. Works of art is probably a better description.
