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

Read the rave reviews before heading to Lake Placid. Stopped by one afternoon in search of something sweet. We were NOT disappointed. Had a cupcake that looked like a chocolate hostess cupcake. It was delicious! If you like sweets I highly recommend giving it a try.

Stopped in a couple of times for cupcakes and they were great. Tried to get some breakfast one morning but the muffins and donuts were sold out already! Will go there again.

A must stop for delicious cupcakes, cookies and pastries. The chocolate dipped shortbread cookies are to die for.

The first time we stopped in to sample treats for our June 20th wedding, we were sold, and decided to for-go the traditional wedding cake for a spread of desserts. Amazingly tasty and creative cupcakes, campfire s'mores bars, and the cookie whoopies with the maple buttercream were all absolutely delicious. My fiance and I had a hard time narrowing down... More

We were in Lake Placid in early June. I sent my dad in for two cupcakes. We had discovered you two years ago in your old location, while on vacation. I wanted one of your outstanding red velvet and my dad a carrot . He came back with SIX. He couldn't decide. He had a mint, one that tasted like... More

I had a cro-nut that almost made me cry. The lemon bar was the best I've ever had. I will definitely be back in the winter!
