WE shared a cupcake, as they are very rich but worth the calories. Unique flavours and many to choose from. They have a filling inside which makes them very moist and rich. Enjoyed it very much, but honestly half was enough.

Cake Placid is one the the finest true bakeries that we have enjoyed in a number of years. The frosting lightly whipped and tasty. The cake a moist, flavorful delicacy. I have missed a true old fashioned bakery cake with really beautifully crafted frosting, until Cake Placid. The service was as wonderful as the cupcakes. A young woman who patiently... More

We stopped in our way home to pick up some cupcakes and we were very happy we did! The caramel apple and pumpkin cupcakes are the perfect autumn desserts!! So excited that there is another Cake Placid closer to home in Ballston Spa! Will definitely be ordering from Cake Placid for our next family birthday!!

Arranged for some treats to be sent to my hotel to surprise my wife for her birthday and everything was executed flawlessly. went to the store and ended up getting tons more while on the trip. Even ordered a cake to bring home for our daughter's birthday. Everything we tried was excellent.

My simple vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting was worth the 1 hour and 45 minute drive to LP. I like the basics and this cupcake was fantastic along with the cro-nut and other pastries I purchased. The staff was extremely pleasant and this is now one of my favorite shops in LP. I can't wait to come back!

I also got a shortbread cookie, I ate that while I walked to the car. My friends got the s'more bar. A vanilla/vanilla cupcake, a raspberry zinger cupcake. It... More

Stopped by to get some cake pops for the wife and kids, which they absolutely loved. But I spotted a savory scone and was really interested in what it was like. It was cheddar, bacon, scallion. Of course I had to have it in the car on the way back to the hotel. It was really really good. Very moist... More

The bakery smells so good inside. There was a great selection of a creative cupcakes. The OMG bars are the best. The girl working at the counter was very pleasant and patient as it took us some time to decide which cupcakes were wanted. The cupcakes were worth each calorie!

We celebrated our son's birthday here at Lake Placid at a fine dining area restaurant, and brought the excellent chocolate cake with us. Even the hostess at the restaurant complemented on the beauty and quality of the cake. Anyone who knows about quality will realize that the cakes are made with love and care. The extraordinary chocolate cake with outstanding... More

My daughter insisted we stop here after dinner one night. It is in a strip mall and I did not have high expectations for baked goods so late in the day. Was I wrong!! The cupcakes here were incredible. They were moist, with complex flavors and well packaged for travel. The Mt. Marcy was amazing. The shop sells icing shooters... More
