I have been going to Cake Placid for a while now. Usually once a month, sometimes more.. Always same deliciousness! I am not a fan of their cupcakes, but then again I'm not a cake lover. I love the lemon bars, cookies, and pastries! This past week, I purchased a deep fried croissant it was outrageous!

Overpriced. Stale. Bad experience. I try to support local businesses but we will not be returning here. Items we bought did not taste fresh.

I'm a local area resident and have been to Cake Placid at least 5 times over the past 2-3 years. On repeated occasions, I have found that their cupcakes, while beautiful looking, do not taste fresh. The cake portion is hard and stale, as if it's days old. The absolute worst was when I bought a pack of their frozen... More

We stopped after reading reviews on FB. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a lovely little bakery filled with wonderful goodies. Most of the hand decorated cupcakes were Halloween themed. We bought 1/2 dozen adorable cupcakes to take home to our grands. We bought cheesecake, donuts to die for and the greatest bread ever. Not disappointed with anything. Thank you... More

OMG layered bar (yup-real deal). Pumpkin cheesecake square was good as well. Tough choices, but OMG is the way to go.

We had a terrible breakfast in our motel so we went to eat in Cake Placid. We ate a Lemon bar, a scone, a chocolate chip muffin, a brownie and a campfire bar which was definitely the best thing we ate there!

We used Cake Placid as our bakery for our wedding at the Lake Placid Club this past August. I honestly could not have envisioned ANYTHING more perfect! Jennifer came with rustic cake stands and set up our dessert table, (with cute description tags!) for us for a nominal fee - it was one less thing we had to worry about!... More

We visited 2 other bakeries prior to Cake Placid and didn't buy a thing due to the staff and selections. Right when we walked in Cake Placid we were greeted by smiling staff and an amazing display! We bought cupcakes and OMG bars.... So delicious! In addition, the price was much less than I expected.
