Has Become a Family Tradition!

A visit (or several!) to Cake Placid has become one of our family traditions when we are in the Lake Placid area. The cupcakes here are some of the best I've ever had in the New England/Northeast Region. In fact, we always make it our last stop before we go home so that we can enjoy "a bit of... read more

My family stopped in CakePlacid on our way out of town after a wonderful visit to Lake Placid . I am a professional pastry chef and I do not believe the products that are being sold at Cake Placid are not all from a box. If they are from scratch, ( as the owner claims) then I would suggest they... More

I write this response with hesitation, as I am always the optimist, however if I didn't know any better, I would come to the conclusion that something isn't quite right with the past few reviews, including this one. I will take the high road and assume that this is 100% legit and respond appropriately. First of all, I am so... More

I recently purchased a couple dozen cupcakes and cake pops from Cake Placid for my wife's 40th birthday party. The cupcakes and the cake pops were excellent and every guest at the event was raving about them....and these were friends and family from all over the country that have high standards when it comes to food. Jen was great to... More

I went in Cake Placid on Saturday 1.31.2015 with high hopes. Nice window signs, clean interior, quite a few cupcakes in the case. I purchased 8 cupcakes, 4 that were in the case and 4 that had just been brought from the back, fresh. The 4 from the case were so dry and artificial tasting I was stunned, we literally... More

I am absolutely, 100% both mortified and disappointed in this review. It was clearly done in absolute haste. I can tell you, as I sit here, at 2am reading this, I can assure you that I am up, at my bakery, with no less than six hours of sleep to bake everything we do, FROM SCRATCH. Not only to we... More

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

I am so very sorry for what seems like two bad experiences with us. It appears from your profile that you are local, so I'm not sure why the review instead of walking in or spending a little extra time to retry us by phone. Clearly there was an issue with our phone lines, as we do have a standard... 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
