Las Vegas has a well-earned reputation as an adult wonderland—a city of sublime steaks, palatial hotel rooms and champagne bottles the size of a small child. Though it gets less buzz, the Strip is equally endowed in the dessert department, with cupcake vending machines and chocolate fountains that flow ’round the clock. Check your diet at the airport. It’s time to indulge.

1 . Jean Philippe Patisserie

If Willy Wonka were a pastry world champion, his lair might look like this culinary paradise, where you can smell the record-setting chocolate fountain before you’re even around the corner. Follow your nose, select from an array of tarts, cakes, macarons and crepes, then revel in the work of a true master. (Bellagio, 702.693.8865)

2. Sprinkles Cupcakes

Blame Sprinkles for launching the country’s cupcake obsession. The Beverly Hills bakery, which debuted in 2005, now has 25 locations selling flavors like cinnamon sugar and peanut butter chip along with cookies, brownies and ice cream sandwiches (served on cupcakes, of course). Should you need a late-night snack, the cupcake ATM is stocked 24/7. (The Linq Promenade, 702.733.0522)

3. Carbone

Saving room for sweets is tough at this high-shine Italian eatery, where the portions are quite filling. However, when the dessert cart rolls up, you’ll be glad you did. Grab a slice of carrot cake or go old-school with flambé bananas, sizzled tableside. (Aria, 877.230.2742)

4. Gordon Ramsay Steak

Never mind the rest of the dessert list; you’re here for the sticky toffee pudding. Ramsay’s rendition of the classic British treat is groan-inducing good, offered with brown butter ice cream and extra toffee sauce you’ll want to slather on everything in sight. (Paris, 702.946.4663)

5. Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak

Make-your-own sundaes get an update at Heritage Steak, where the “ice cream social” delivers vanilla frozen pops and all the fixings to craft the perfect ice cream bar. Choose a chocolate coating then go wild with toppings like sprinkles, cookie bits and crushed peanuts. Voila! It’s ice cream genius. (The Mirage, 702.791.7223)

6. Cut

Nobody goes to a steakhouse for the sweets, but at Wolfgang Puck’s Cut, the dessert list nearly steals the show thanks to pastry chef Nicole Erle’s sensational creations. From peach baked Alaska to strawberry shortcake doughnuts, the final course here is far from an afterthought. You might even want seconds. (The Palazzo, 702.607.6300)

7. Strip House

This swank steakhouse is perhaps best known for its chocolate cake—a towering 24-layer stack of moist sponge and rich filling that you can even buy frozen at Neiman Marcus for a cool $120. There’s plenty to share, but you’ll probably want to keep it to yourself. (Planet Hollywood Resort, 702.737.5200)

8.Joël Robuchon

Details define this Michelin three-star restaurant, and that’s doubly true for the desserts. The pastry chef crafts bonbons and plated treats that transform sugar and chocolate into exquisite works of art almost too pretty to eat. (MGM Grand, 702.891.7925)

9. Bacchanal Buffet

If your motto is “more is more,” this is the buffet for you. Hundreds of plates are whipped up daily, and sweets get their own section with rows of gelato, tarts, cakes, canoli and crème brûlée, all sized for sampling, so you can taste, savor, and most importantly, repeat.
