Hours in the window say closed tues/ wed. So we delayed leaving lake placid for our drive home on thursday until after 10am (when they open) so we could get cupcakes . When we got there - there was a sign in the window that they were closed-unless you were picking up an order. My advice is call before you... More

I am so terribly sorry for your less than wonderful experience at Cake Placid. I sure wish you had let us know that your cupcake or chocolate chip cookie was not good. We would have replaced it or given a refund, but most importantly, I would have checked on the quality to be sure that something was not wrong. We... More

I sent Jen photos of my sons 9th birthday decorations and told her it was going to be "a color explosion".... And what she did with that info couldn't have been more perfect! The cake was fresh and delicious!!! The fudgy middle layer was perfection. (I think the adults appreciated it more than the kids!) Great cake!!!

Thank you for your feedback! I was so excited that I could put the extra time into Santo's Day of the Dead themed cake! It was really so much fun. I appreciate your business, and that you took time out of your day to write this very sweet review. Thank you! More

Stopped by with my family on a Saturday afternoon. Owner only one working counter--but she is personable and friendly. I got the cinnamon roll. Average. A bit dry. Older daughter had red velvet cupcake. Shockingly dry. Had to be day old. Younger daughter's lemon bar quite good. Wife's chocolate mint cupcake had good icing, but cake just...meh. For $12, anyone... More

I very much appreciate your feedback. Although it's not what I want to hear, as the owner, I certainly welcome the criticism so that I can be sure I am pleasing all of our customers to our best ability. I see that you are local. If I could strongly recommend one thing, it would be to definitely let the establishment... More

Since I live in Ohio and my granddaughter goes to school in Lake Placid, I called Jennifer and consulted with her about ordering a special cake so that my granddaughter could celebrate her 16th birthday away from home with her friends. My granddaughter was thrilled with the cake ("amazing and sooo good") and loved the special cake topper Jennifer arranged... More

Cupcakes were nice, but the s'mores bar (maybe called campfire bar?) was really good! Just an FYI, they are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, like most of the rest of the town. No biggie - the trip out from our Main Street hotel was all of 4 min so we didn't mind to return.

Thank you for your kind review! Our campfire bars are one of our most popular bakery items...as much as I'm around sweets daily, this is always MY go-to treat! So glad you enjoyed it! We hope to see you again soon. More

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 Lake... More

Thank you for such a SWEET and kind review! I have no idea what these other reviewers are saying either! But, I've come to learn that I cannot please everyone, nor can I ensure that every single bakery item comes out 100%. Baking is a science and if something is even the slightest off, it can alter the whole experience.... 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
