I cannot say enough nice things about the Sugar Shack. I was in a panic, I needed a cake ASAP. I ran in, the two girls could not have been nicer to me. I got my cake! It was to die for! Thank you Gina & Angela!!

Conveniently located on Main Street and near the Olympic Center, when in Lake Placid, be sure to stop by the "Shack" and enjoy all of the tasty treats the Sugar Mommas have to offer. From yummy, original cupcakes to brownies, black & whites, crumb cake etc. etc., their baked good are decadent and delish. Additionally, they offer homemade iced teas... More

Some of their items are a bit more than most people would like to pay, however, they are delicious. I tried one of their giant white chocolate mac nut cookies, which lasted me two servings, and it was wonderful. My friend loved his eclair, which is filled upon ordering. It was a very cute shop, too.

We were actually hoping to try a sweet treat at Cake Placid this trip but it was not easy to find and so we ended up right at the Sugar Shack! The coffee here was strong, which I like, and the desserts were yummy! My husband had the chocolate peanut butter cupcake they had that day and I had a... More

What an awesome little sweets shop this is! We bought a bunch of mini cupcakes, coffee cake and cookies. The cupcakes were so good - great combinations - peanut butter & chocolate, mint chocolate chip, plain jane vanilla - fresh and delish! The coffee cake was so good that I wish we bought another to bring to our friends house.... More

After reading previous reviews, daughter and I went for a sweet treat. She had the vanilla cupcake, I had the strawberry crumbcake, both were great. However, today I was surprised with a Vanilla Birthday Cake from the Sugar Shack. OMG, so so good.

The cake was wonderfully dense & moist. We bought the half-moon cupcakes & some macaroons. Heavenly. Only change I'd suggest is to use less frosting. The 1/2 moon cupcakes had the perfect amount so the frosting didn't overpower the cake.

I stopped in only because we good walk from the Golden Arrrow. Not worth the walk or the money spent. The cupcakes are very dry and tasted stale or day old. They get high ratings but not sure why. The quality is very poor, there are several other shops in the area that are better. Will not be back or... More

What a delightful surprise to find such yummy cannoli in Lake Placid! The shell and filling were divine! The variety of bakery treats will keep me coming back to try more!
