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 ordered a birthday cake for my son's 2nd birthday last minute and the staff was more than happy to fill my order. The cake was delicious and beautiful! 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.

Cake placid is a most pleasant surprise in this little mountain town. I have purchased birthday cakes in the best of cities and Cakeplacid rates up there with the best of them. The baker does an amazing job as an artist, as well as bakes a melt in your mouth cake. Her trademark birch bark, Pinecone icing is a mountain... More

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.
