Relocations of long-term businesses from other parts of Vegas has been a trend this year as Henderson welcomed Layers Bakery to the Green Valley Pkwy area. Greg and Jeanne Forrest opened Layers a few months ago at this location near the new Target. Freedt’s Bakery moved into their location in Henderson near another Target Store on Eastern close to Horizons Ridge Pkwy.
Layers owners Greg and Jeanne Forrest describe their Layers desserts as “made from scratch, using natural ingredients – no preservatives or trans fats, made with real butter, heavy cream, flour , sugar, and high quality vanilla and cocoa.” “Our fruit fillings are made the old fashioned way and cooked down.” Greg and Jeanne wanted us to tell you they don’t sell sheet cakes. They have three sized cakes available :6″,8″, and 10.”
The cakes, pastries, and cookies are all specially named and created with care such as the cake called “Love Monkey,” which is a banana cake layered with salty-sweet peanut butter mousse, then drenched in dark chocolate ganache.
The Layers Carrot Cake has carrots, pineapple, coconut, and raisins and is filled with a cream cheese frosting.
Jeanne calls their cupcakes “cuppies.” Jeanne said that Layers does not have gobbs of flowers on their cakes made from icing. We just don’t do that.” Layers is located at 665 S. Green Valley Pkwy, and is positioning themselves in the marketplace as a “neighborhood bakery and cafe,” open seven days a week serving breakfast and lunch.www.layersbakery.com (702)221-2253
