A must stop for delicious cupcakes, cookies and pastries. The chocolate dipped shortbread cookies are to die for.

The first time we stopped in to sample treats for our June 20th wedding, we were sold, and decided to for-go the traditional wedding cake for a spread of desserts. Amazingly tasty and creative cupcakes, campfire s'mores bars, and the cookie whoopies with the maple buttercream were all absolutely delicious. My fiance and I had a hard time narrowing down... More

We were in Lake Placid in early June. I sent my dad in for two cupcakes. We had discovered you two years ago in your old location, while on vacation. I wanted one of your outstanding red velvet and my dad a carrot . He came back with SIX. He couldn't decide. He had a mint, one that tasted like... More

I had a cro-nut that almost made me cry. The lemon bar was the best I've ever had. I will definitely be back in the winter!

We celebrated my sister's 40th Birthday in Lake Placid and Cake Placid made her cake. Jennifer at Cake Placid communicated with me via email and designed a great buttercream, tiffany box cake for her. Not only was it "perfect" as my Mom said, it was delicious. They did a Chantilly cream filling with fresh strawberries. They even delivered to our... More

You can't go in and just pick one dessert, it just doesn't happen. You get a pie, and come cupcakes and the pile just keeps mounting. That's the way I like it. I don't have a specific favorite, but I think there is something for everyone here! (As long as you like dessert!!) Anyhow they also made our cake which... More

Stopped here after our mother's day lunch. We got the Omg Bar and Crodacks. The OMG Bar was amazing. We saved our crodacks until we got home. They were so worth the wait. Next time I am in Lake Placid I will have to stop to try one of the beautiful cupcakes. The girl at the counter was very friendly.

Went on easter weekend and decided to pick up a batch. I was the last client for the day before it closes for a week. Not sure how fresh the cupcakes were since I've been told the owner was away on vacation. Just average taste. My daughter rates it a 7.

Thank you for your review. My apologies that your baked good seemed average. Being that you were the very last customer of the day, on a holiday nonetheless, I can only assume that your selection was limited and you would not have received something you ultimately were looking for. I couldn't tell you what we could do differently, because we... More
