My friend ordered me a cake for my 30th birthday. One word that can describe it - dry! It was so dry I could not believe it especially it looked so pretty. She ordered chocolate with raspberries, which was chocolate but there was tiny layer of raspberry jam in the middle. Frosting was also dry. Did not taste good too... More

What else is there to say ? Gourmet cupcakes.. !! There IS nothing more to say... The storefront is clean, well organized and the presentation is well lit, readable, professional, and best of all, colorful. It is not a large Patisserie, but not everything great arrives in large "cartons". Its Adirondack flair is very admirable, it keeps with the appeal... More

I have visited Cake Placid many times in the years it has been open. I have received consistently good service, and consistently good product! The cupcakes are moist and the frosting delicious, sweet but not too sweet. The flavor combinations are creative and delicious, from the daily offerings to the specials. Cake pops, Campfire Bars, OMG Bars, and other dessert... More

I will only order my desserts from here from now on. Thank you so much to the owner Jennifer for doing this last minute and for her wonderful work on the... More

This is the first negative review I've ever written for a restaurant/business. We ordered a cake for a special occasion (based on an ad in Adirondack LIfe) and had communicated with the owner a number of times prior to our mom's 80th birthday celebration. When we arrived at the shop to pick up the cake, they didn't have our order... More

I am so very sorry that your experience was not as anticipated. I certainly owned up to having the cake slightly delayed and offered both a discount and delivery. Unfortunately, sometimes things happen beyond our control. We don't love it when that happens either, it's very stressful. I certainly did not however, be dishonest about not having the cake done...

Myself,wife and 3 friends had a sweet-tooth after a climb and stopped in as we had somehow heard that it was really good. Out of the approx. 10 cupcakes we bought,half of them seemed old and dry.The others were tasty but by no means outstanding.For the price,they should be memorable,but were soon very forgettable......let's hope it was bad timing.

Hmmm, perhaps it was a bad day. I am so very sorry you had a less than wonderful experience. As you can see, we have many great reviews here and I certainly wish you had experienced what all of these other reviewers did. I'm not sure if something happened that day, what day it was, what time you were there.... More

Who would have thought to make a mountain birthday cake? Complete with a ski hill and tiny little skis? Leave it to Cake Placid to pull it off. The chocolate cake they made for my birthday party, 120 guests, was moist, fluffy and delicious, even though it was a huge cake. All the guests took pictures of it before it... More

The scones which were wonderful. Anyone who looks forward to the fall and pumpkin must try the pumpkin spice cupcakes....to die for. But my favorite was the OMG bar...appropriately named. Just wish I lived closer.
