Our Story

Through the years, Cake Placid has grown by serving the Lake Placid and surrounding communities with elegant wedding cakes, fresh breakfast pastries, delightful donuts, gourmet cupcakes, and other from-scratch bakery goods. Our location at 2051 Saranac Avenue provides seating and a modern, yet rustic vibe for you to relax, maybe enjoying a cup of Bean-To Coffee and a warm cider donut. 


Our product offerings continue to expand under our Executive Pastry Chef, Margaret Dunn.


In July of 2015, Christopher & Catherine Ericson, owners of The Lake Placid Pub & Brewery and Big Slide Brewery & Public House, purchased Cake Placid from its founder, Jennifer Gates. Breads and desserts from Cake Placid are now used at both of the Ericson’s brewpubs. 


We hope you will stop by and enjoy the best bakery in the Adirondacks!
