This is an appealing little bakery with several tables and chairs, located just minutes from "downtown" Lake Placid. It is now owned by the same folks who own Lake Placid Pub & Brewery and Big Slide Brewery & Public House, so you will find some of Cake Placid's bakery at each of these establishments as well.

I live in Miami, FL and there are plenty of cupcake shops but this place has the best cupcakes I've ever had! I tried the chocolate peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake cupcakes and the cannoli. Everything was so good, the cupcakes are moist and the frostings are light. Wish I had one back home!!

Stopped by here on our way out of town and SO happy we did. So many delicious treats to choose from, of course we got way too much but it was impossible to choose just one thing. Huge donuts and pastries with very creative flavor combinations- funfetti twist donuts, Oreo cinnamon rolls, fritters, cupcakes, scones, and the list goes on.... More

Cake Placid is a cute and charming little bakery with a wide range in desserts but they're will to make anything custom. We ordered mini donuts, whoopee pies and cake pops for the dessert table. Everything was adorable and outrageous. Guests were pocketing extras to take home!

Cake Placid caught my eye just as we were leaving town and I was so glad it did. We picked up some treats for the ride home and the Campfire Bar tasted like the best S'more I've every eaten. Will definitely return on my next visit. Love the name.

This one excellent bakery. You will be spoiled with choice. All of the baked goods looked so good it was difficult to choose. We stopped twice for goodies, the last time was on our way home. We just had to take some of the goodies home with us.
