I live locally and Cake Placid is my all time favorite stop in the area to satisfy the sweet tooth and my go to spot for special event cupcakes and cakes! I have been going to Jenn's shop since she opened and have nothing but good things to say. I'm always greeted with a smile and friendly service, they'll start... More

We just came back to our hotel with some Mint chocolate cupcakes and they were delicious! The whole family loved them. We were not super impressed with the service though. We have a nut allergy and completely understand and read the signs that say there can be cross contamination, but we asked if there is nuts made in the cupcake... More

Thank you so much for visiting our bakery. I am glad you enjoyed our Mint Chocolate cupcakes, they are one of our best sellers. I am sorry, however that your experience was less than stellar. I must tell you that the young lady that waited on you that day was a teenager, experiencing her very first job. She was only... More

Their donuts are a great way to start the morning. "Icing pops" were not impressive. Too sweet vanilla icing covered with Salted Carmel chocolate.

Thank you for taking the time to write an honest review of your experience at our bakery. We agree that our donuts are a fantastic start to the morning as we make them fresh daily with the finest ingredients. I'm slightly confused about your review about our icing pops, as we have not had icing pops available for nearly a... More

Stopped by on a Saturday morning and a family was taking quite awhile to order and ask questions. A woman came from the back of the store and sat down behind the counter. We asked her a question concerning an item and she described it, however, she offered no assistance. I asked if she could help us and she said... More

Alas, the review I have been patiently waiting to respond to. This is Jennifer, the owner. The girl who was sitting in the chair that you are referring to. I will 100% admit that I told you no, that I wasn't helping customers. However, I did also explain, that I wasn't helping customers at that exact moment but that I... More

Jennifer has created numerous confections for my family over the years, and I am always, always... taken aback by her creations! Formerly from Long Island, I've become accustomed to some of the finest bakeries over the years. Jennifer is by far, the best in the Adirondacks. We are so very lucky to have her!

I am a certified food snob, and so is my other half. It was our first time in Lake Placid, and Cake Placid (awesome take on a name) has easily become our most favorite dessert destination....ummm...ever! Some folks said they had dry cupcakes, but that was NOT our experience. The red velvet was amazingly moist and flavorful without being wickedly... More

Every time I go here I have the same dilemma, I go in for one cupcake, but after I look at the selections in the case and all the options, I end up getting two different ones. And even after that I feel like I'm leaving something very yummy behind. I have never been disappointed with any flavor I've tried.... More

My husband and I visit Lake Placid once a year and can't wait to get to Cake Placid when we get there. The cupcakes here are outrageously delicious and we attempt to try each one if they aren't sold out, and many times they are. We have tried every cupcake from the snowball, toasted coconut, peanut butter cup, mint chocolate... More
