My mom has been doing most of the communicating with this baker for my wedding, but so far we have been very happy with themThey have been very easy to get a hold of via text, and my mom had booked an appointment yesterday, 8/15/19, to pick up the tasting samples at 10:00 AM. There was an apparent misunderstanding with another group who had supposedly booked an appointment through a third-party site for a tasting as well. (BTW the chocolate coconut cake and the apple spice were amazing)My mom had no issues, but she told me that a woman from the other group just started screaming at her like she should know what was going on. The baker clearly did not, so screaming and getting belligerent was absolutely unnecessary. My mom said that the baker was very apologetic to her, although it does not sound like it was really her fault, as the appointment was not booked with her in the first place.Word of advice for anyone looking at vendors through a third-party site. ALWAYS contact the vendor from THEIR website and the information there. That is what we did, and we have had great luck so far.Lakes Cakes came highly recommended by our wedding venue, and I am sure we will not be disappointed! More...

We loved LakesCakes. Their location is out of their home which is personable and conveniently located. We loved almost every kind of cake & mouse filling that we tried. Their cake was very affordable. We compared their pricing to Costco, and as Costco price was cheaper, LakesCakes provided more layers of cake per slice, than Costco. We were able to rent the cake stand which made our cake pictures beautiful. Everyone loved the 5 different kinds of cake that we chose and we did not have any left over. More...

Very unique cakes. I saw the many awesome cakes online and knew this was the place to get a unique cake for my husband's 70th birthday. Our theme was game night and our cake was perfect. I felt the price was reasonable and the cake actually tasted good too. Highly recommend. More...

I found Lakes Cakes on The Knot while looking for wedding cakes.  My fiance and I tried a lot of cakes to find the one ( one of the best parts of planning imo) and I can say with confidence that Lakes is one of the best out there. We picked up a sample box from their home and were so surprised by the amount of cake we recieved! I'm picky but enjoyed every single flavor.  Even better,  their prices were incredibly fair.  We decided to book them for our wedding. Before our wedding though my fiance's father's 70th birthday came up and we wanted to do something special.  A fancy cake was just what we needed. He's very big into fishing so we decided to get a 3d tackle box. I sent Lakes a couple images I found online and they were quick to give me a price (so cheap!) And agree on a style. The cake was ready on time and beautiful!!!! Everyone was shocked at how cool it looked and we're actually eating it as I type and it's just as delicious as I remembered.  I cannot wait till my wedding to get another taste! Thanks Lakes Cakes!

Great cake design, taste and service! I ordered a cake last minute after my regular baker canceled. Lakes Cakes hooked me up with a beautiful 2 tiered 30th birthday cake that was awesome. The buttercream is the best I have tasted and they now have a customer for life! More...

I couldn't be happier with my choice to have Lakes Cakes design my wedding cake. They make it super convenient to sample their cakes. We opted to simply stop by and pick up a sample box. My finance and I were blown away by how much cakes and fillings we received. We were also given a firm quote at the time which also was great. Fast forward... the wedding cake was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Lakes Cakes! More...

Lakes Cakes is the best bakery in Metro Detroit  - I have been ordering from Lakes Cakes for 8 years and they have never disappointed me.  My kids and guests loved the cake designing and flavors. We have ordered 3D, Tiered Cakes and Adult themed cakes from them. My fav Lakes Cakes flavors include Strawberry coulis with white batter and Choc with Bavarian cream second. The communication part is super easy: you email them a picture: simply pick a design from their fb page or website or Pinterest and they will respond back with pricing/flavors and to confirm pickup date/window.

I needed a special birthday cake made without eggs for my grandson who has a major allergy to them. I also didn't want a cake decorated with fondant figures.  I wanted true cake decorating. When I saw that Heidi did vegan cakes and how beautiful her cakes were, I decided to give her a try.   Everyone agreed the cake was tasty and moist. There was a difference in the texture but it wasn't a bad thing, just different. I texted her a photo of a book jacket to copy the dog's face from his favorite book. The cake came out great and was 3 dimensional. She was very nice as was her husband. I've found a new place to get cakes! More...

We would like to thank you for the AMAZING birthday cake you did
for my husbands 50th. I got so many complements on how
delicious the cake and cupcakes where. All your business
cards were taken and I passes out your email address to other
guests who did not get a card.

The cake and cupcakes where so good and moist, and the filling
was out of this world. You did a fantastic job and your cake with
the cupcakes were the hit of the party.

Thank you so much for everything!!!

Very happy with a 3 tier Harry Potter cake i ordered in June 2017. I called the day before in a panic thinking i would never be able to find something nice in time. I really left the design up to them only offering minimal ideas and when i picked the cake up i was so happy! They did an amazing job decorating the cake and when we cut into it and ate it, everyone was impressed and asked for their information for futer orfers. Delicious! Thank you lakes cakes. More...

Lakes Cakes was everything we could have hoped for in a cake provider. They provided a tasting box customized with the flavors which had already been decided, that remained excellent across three flights and the several days between my wife's initial tasting and my own. They were helpful trying to work within our budget, followed our particular requests for a naked style cake with minimal frosting perfectly, and were flexible in their delivery to ensure neither of us had to worry about the cake after the initial order. I could not recommend them highly enough. More...

I have nothing but good things to say about Lakes Cakes, and have been using them for almost 10 years now. The owners are always willing to go over and beyond in an to satisfy their customers. The cakes themselves are sooooo good! Take a look at all the different flavors they offer, and everything is homemade. Also, their sugar cookies are to die for! More...

Lakes Cakes creates beautiful 3D cake sculptures and other types of cakes that taste as good as they look. Their buttercream is the best I have ever tasted. Every year I get my son and husband's birthday cake from them. I have read some of the negative reviews here, and it obviously looks like some folks are just looking for trouble or a free cake! I have found the owners to be cordial, professional and are extremely patient when you are trying to finalize a cake design. Sometimes I have 3 different designs I like and Lakes Cakes has no problem taking the extra time helping me put the ideas into a final cake design. They have a customer for life! More...

This company was fantastic to work with. I called Lakes Cake less than thirty days prior to the wedding with a plea for help. Gregory and Heidi were so accommodating to make sure that they were able to create and deliver a cake that was absolutely stunning. So many guests commented how beautiful the cake looked. I can honestly say that there was more than enough cake with very little left because everyone wanted to take it home. I would without a doubt use Lakes Cakes again and would highly recommend anyone else to do the same. More...

I would highly recommend lakes cakes! I traveled from Chicago to Michigan for my wedding and they were so accommodating in letting us come pick up samples. The cakes was raved about by guests! We chose the chocolate- strawberry swirl. Not something we would typically pick but the cake was amazing and we couldn't resist that choice!! The final product looked identical to the picture we chose and I am so happy with the outcome. They were prompt and easy to work with! More...

Many people came up to ask where I got it from and others took your business cards. Here's hoping you get lots of calls, because you earned it!!

LOVED Lakes Cakes! They were the 3rd and final tasting we did (in addition to bridal shows) and they were amazing! I'm so glad I came across them. Delicious and affordable. Very easy to work with and made a beautiful replica of inspiration pictures I sent them. My venue manager didn't put my cake topper out for them to put on the cake unfortunately but they still made it look beautiful with the flowers that were provided, thank goodness.
We went with 2 flavors, the marble cake with raspberry filling, and the strawberry lemon cake with chocolate mousse filling. I'm going to be in agony waiting for our anniversary cake so I can have it again! Heidi also had no problem adding on a sheet cake the week before so there would be sure to be enough for all of the guests.

Lakes Cakes was fantastic even from the very beginning. Extremely prompt in answering all my questions. The tasting was fabulous in both that the cakes tasted amazing and because there were quite a bit to try so you knew exactly how everything was going to taste. And boy did it taste great! We had ordered a 3 tier wedding cake, neapolitan style so white, chocolate, and strawberry for the different tiers. We had ordered a cake to serve 100 and only about 85 came. However, there were only three pieces of cake from all three tiers left over. People loved it, and when I went to taste it after I understood. Lakes Cakes also did a fantastic job in decorating it. I gave her pictures of the lace details in my dress and she was able to recreate it in buttercream icing. She also decorated it beautifully with the flowers she was given. So much so that when I forgot the wedding cake topper, no one but myself even noticed it not being there. Would highly recommend!! More...

Our cake was awesome! I designed the cake with elements of several others I had seen online and Lakes Cakes did a perfect job of putting it together into a beautiful cake. They even had ideas of how to make it better, which I appreciated. Everything in the tasting box was so delicious we had trouble choosing flavors. We had almond cake with chocolate mousse which was just about the best thing I have ever tasted and lemon cake with raspberry mousse which was also super delicious. Everyone commented on how good the cake was! I liked that the frosting tasted so good and that it was three layers of cake, not two like a birthday cake. The even bigger bonus when planning a wedding was that Lakes Cakes was the second most affordable cake vendor we found. (The most affordable tasted like a cake mix with Jell-O instant pudding between the layers so in my opinion that doesn't even count as an option.) I also really liked that we weren't stuck at a cake size when we booked with them - another place we looked at had a minimum dollar amount. This was really good for us because we invited 150 people and ended up with 87 so we were able to save money by downsizing the cake.

We will DEFINITELY be getting more cakes from Lakes Cakes! It's worth the drive anytime we need a cake, it's THAT good!

Heidi and her husband were an absolute joy to work with for my wedding cake! I live very far away from where they work, so I have never met them in person, but they executed my vegan cake with perfection. The appearance was to die for, and exactly what I had requested. I even left Heidi random extra faux flowers from my arrangements, and she decorated my cake and cake stand with them. IT LOOKED AMAZING! All of my guests raved about the flavor of my cake (vegan pumpkin spice, with vegan buttercream frosting) and my husband and I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. Not joking, Couldn't be happier with Lakes Cakes's customer service, presentation, and pricing. I still dream about eating my wedding cake until this day. More...

I used the twice already I have never been disappointed at with them people really need to think this is a small company and they do their best if I have read any of these comments and formed a opinion I would have missed out because they did what I asked from them I got more than I paid for it was my wedding cake and that can set everything off if anyone reads this trust me it's worth it some of the nasty remarks show me that you ask for a ocean and you paid for a pond I really doubt that they was rude about fixing a mistake it's just some people feel like they suppose to bow down and do what they said if you are a closed minded person you don't understand but they cake is really good and every cake I get I promise it will be from them

SO DELICIOUS! Out of all my vendors, they were the most prompt with getting a contract to me, and with getting paperwork to my venue. What really stood out to me was when I was late making my final payment (loss of a family member...wedding stuff got put on the back burner). There was a late charge, but then since I had them put it on my card over the phone, they waived the fee! Very VERY nice people to work for, extremely delicious cake for a great price, and the decorating was beautiful! More...

I really loved our cake we had for our wedding. I went very far as of I live in Detroit MI and Lakes Cakes is in Commerce MI, I had a cake tasting, I wanted ever part of my wedding to feel like we were in the movies like me and the bridesmaids would go David's Bridal and look for dresses and drink wine or look for decorations together, and shop for shoes. Well, it did not happen like that everyone was at work all the time we could never get together for pretty much anything. But one thing did happen the cake tasting, me and my family, mom, brother his wife and my soon to be husband. Went all the way to Commerce MI and a platter was set out for us nothing big a sample of assorted cake from carrot, to lemon to chocolate cake with strawberry swirl I was so surprised and very happy that something did come true. So to the staff at Lake’s Cake’s thank you soooo much xoxo's hat goes off to you guys for making this lovely and marvelous cake that I choose for my big day. Thanks for getting it there and on time and it was a beautiful big 4 tier, the top was marble middle was strawberry 3rd layer was carrot with nuts and the bottom was yellow batter, the icing was butter cream with navy blue trimming and it was the wedding cake of my dreams! I need to find out how to post the cake, so real soon I will post the cake. More...

Apparently, my last review was tagged as a phony. I'm definitely real. And I was so happy with Lakes Cakes, I felt it necessary to say I definitely still recommend them. They're professional, very skilled, and offer a great price for their services. They offered a cake tasting session that was a lot of fun and very helpful in our decision making. We had a niche wedding - everything was vegan. Lakes Cakes was hands down the best solution for a vegan cake. They made a delicious vegan cake that looked stunning. We researched a good number of places for our wedding. Other places in town that offered vegan cakes were way out of our price range. Honestly, I don't see how they could have done a better job anyway. If someone flagged my previous review, I would appreciate you not doing so again. This business deserves props, and I would really like to support them. More...

We used Lakes Cakes for our wedding in 2010. Heidi was extremely nice and helpful from the first meeting to the delivery of our cakes. She met with me and provided me with a bunch of plentiful samples for my groom. (he couldn't make the meeting.) Once I decided on my designs, she worked with me to match the colors of my wedding party and also respected our tight budget by being clear and upfront about all costs.  The day of the wedding, the cakes were delivered and set up by Heidi and her husband. They had such a great attention to detail and I didn't have to worry about how they looked, she even remembered the requests I had made and did a wonderful job of setting up.The cakes looked great and tasted even better! We had lots of compliments on them! My only regret was that we were out of town for my grandmothers funeral for the week of our one year anniversary, when we would have received a free anniversary cake from them. I'd recommend using them for your cake needs! More...

I gave Heidi a picture I found online of a wedding cake and she replicated it beautifully. She was so flexible and responsive to my many questions and changes. I loved the cake and it tasted delicious. I had a different flavor for each tier. My favorites were the spice flavor and strawberry/chocolate. More...

Working with Lakes Cakes was one of the best experiences I had in the entire wedding planning process. Heidi was professional, knowledgeable, and talented. You could tell right away when meeting her that she was very attentive to detail and passionate about what she does. Cakes to her are very personal works of art. The value was amazing. I couldn't have gotten better value for my money anywhere else. My cake was gorgeous and delicious. It was moist. The frosting looked like fondant - but was not and tasted amazing! My guests all commented on how good the frosting was, as well as the cake. I would recommend Lakes Cakes to anyone I know. It was perfect. More...

The only complaint I have Is that I had to drop a check off and leave it at their house. When I talked to the husband about it the day before, he said I would receive an e-mail confirmation to let me know they got it. I didn't get an e-mail so I called back to make sure they got it, and he snapped at me and felt the need to remind me that I had called to let them know it was there and that should have been enough. He was rude. Then I was a little uncomfortable when they dropped the cake off. What a shame.

That said, the cake was fantastic! Delicious and beautiful, everybody loved it. It was exactly what we wanted. The chef was very professional, and I loved how she had her taste-testing set up.

Lakes Cakes was very good at making the wedding cake process easier. The tasting was fantastic and they worked with us to come up with the cake we wanted. The flavors were all very good. We had a groom's cake made of a challenger and it was a big hit. Everyone loved both of our cakes for how they looked and tasted. We would definitely recommend Lake Cakes! Could not of found a better cake. More...

My son has Celiac Disease and must eat Gluten free. Lakes Cakes made the most delicious three tier wedding cake! It was beautiful and tasted wonderful but most importantly we trusted them. Had they not be the first rate company that they are, if they had not be diligent in the preparation of the cake he would have gotten sick. Yes they make outstandingly beautiful cakes, that is true.....but to all the people out there who must eat Gluten free please know this is a company you can trust to make your dream cake a reality!

We looked around at many different cake places. Lakes Cakes had the most resonable prices out of almost everyone. The drive was a bit far to meet with them but well worth the trip. She works out of her home, and was very generous and professional with giving us a cake tasting. The flavors she serves in her cakes were delicious! We had a big desert table at the wedding so not as much cake was eaten, but it was all taken home and enjoyed in the new few days. She was willing to do whatever flavors, style, colors, and design we wanted without nickle and diming us. She was a pleasure to work with and we were very satisfied More...

Being the procrastinator I am, I waited until last minute to find a cake. (I would not recommend it). Luckily, Lakes Cakes is located right down the street from Beacon Hill Golf Club (my wedding venue), and they were able to squeeze me in. I went for the cake tasting and the cake was delicious! They were so great at explaining different options for the cake and had creative ideas for the decoration on the cake. Their delivery was perfect and everyone loved the look/taste of our cake. Also, the cake was very reasonably priced for a wedding cake. More...

Lakes Cakes did a phenomenal job on our wedding cake! Their flavors and fillings are delicious and tasted so much richer than other cake vendors we sampled. When designing the cake, I sent Heidi a picture of what I wanted the cake to look like and photos of my dress. The cake looked absolutely gorgeous when I saw it on my wedding day and exceeded my expectations. We are still getting compliments on it more than a month after our wedding! Definitely recommend Lakes Cakes! More...

Lakes Cakes knocked it out of the park for our wedding. Everything looked gorgeous and tasted fantastic. Each layer of our tiered cake was a different flavor (the most popular most certainly being the mint chocolate chip). The design was elegant and completely matched our specifications. The best part? The cake was 100% vegan! The cake was definitely one of the most talked about / photographed portions of our evening (especially amongst people who were new to the concept of veganism). We really cannot recommend them strongly enough. Lakes Cakes is simply amazing! More...

We wanted many different flavors and they listened we choose, chocolate strawberry, cherry chip, Chocolate cake chocolate moose, white cake raspberry and bavarian cream fill, and fun fetti!! every single flavor turned out amazing!! Every single person at the wedding said that was the best cake they have ever had in their life! and that says a lot!

I was initially hesitant when I found that Lakes Cakes worked out of their home; however, I was attracted to the value of the cake as we were on a budget. I was SO glad I went with them!!! First of all, my cake was gorgeous! I chose the buttercream instead of the fondant, and they made it so smooth you couldn't even tell the difference! We really loved the red velvet and yellow, and I think they were much tastier than even at the cake tasting! People kept telling me how great the cake was - and I agree!! More...

Heidi is very professional and has it all together with her cake business.

Her options for flavors and design, the outstanding taste, and her artisitc capability and pricing (which was a pleasant surprise) are outstanding! She worked well with us and we could not have been happier with our delicious, beautiful cake and service. More...

Lakes Cakes was very easy and friendly to work with and provided a delicious cake for our wedding that fit our budget. We had many compliments from our guests about our cake's presentation as well as how tasty it was. We decided to have 7 different flavors (3 flavors on the tiered cake and then 4 in the sheet cakes), and Lakes Cakes did an awesome job of fulfilling our sweet requests. I would highly recommend this bakery for your cake needs. I know my family will be calling them for parties in the future. More...

The cake was beautiful. I got so many compliments on the taste as well. They worked with our budget and tried very hard to give us the most cake for our money with the addition of a cheesecake and 2 chocolate strawberries. It was a little weird to go to a home instead of a place of business for a tasting, however, my discomfort quickly went away after meeting Heidi and getting to taste their samples. I highly recommend their cakes, cheesecake, and chocolate strawberries. All of which were the best I have ever had! Thank you so much! More...

Lakes Cakes did an absolutely wonderful job. The cake was beautiful and delicious. What I loved about them from the start was their responsiveness, they were always quick to return my calls or emails. They always made me feel like they truly cared about my wedding and that I wasn't just another "job". Her passion for her work shows in her commitment to her customers and the quality of the cakes! Heidi is very professional and her cakes are delicious. She personally set up my cake the day of my wedding and made sure it was perfect. After I had changed my mind a few times, and finally decided I wanted a cake inspired by my dress, Heidi without hesitation, began to design a gorgeous cake and it even had buttons going down the back!

She and her husband are very nice to work with, and are very honest. The cake, frosting and fillings were all wonderful and I really enjoyed the red velvet cake. I would hire Lakes Cakes again, and I am looking forward to our one year anniversary cake!

They allowed us to have different flavors in each cake at no additional cost, we had yellow, red velvet and chocolate. We had SO many people compliment about the cake, the visual apperance as well as the taste. The first time I saw it I was stunned and actually stopped for a moment dead in my tracks because it was so much better than I imagined. I would not recommend anyone else! Lakes Cakes went above and beyond what I had expected them to do and left so many people impressed. They were also very nice people to work with and extrememly easy going. They didnt nickel and dime you with extra costs and were VERY reasonable, especially for the quality they put out. If I were to have my wedding again I wouldnt think twice about who would be making our wedding cake...it would definatly be Lakes Cakes!! More...

It seems that Lakes Cakes slices are larger than "standard" slices, yet they were the most affordable baker I checked into. You can add fresh fruit and mouse filling for a very small additional cost (which I highly recommend). They have a great selection of flavors and their frosting was not too sweet and tasted lighter than others I've had. I typically don't like cake very much, but I really enjoyed ours! Overall, we were very pleased and our cake turned out perfect! Thanks Lakes Cakes :) More...

Lakes Cakes was amazing! The value was *unbeatable* - we looked at five different cake bakers and nobody's prices beat Lakes Cakes. They even threw in a small six-inch gluten/dairy-free cake for FREE for our guests with food allergies.

As for the cake design, they did exactly what I asked. I designed a pattern and wanted them to duplicate it in frosting and they did a great job. The coral frosting I requested was definitely redder than I anticipated, but that is my only complaint about the whole experience. :)

Everyone loved the flavors of the cake (we got spice cake with whipped cream, white cake with vanilla buttercream, and chocolate cake with chocolate and peanut butter mousse). We ended up ordering about 50 servings more than we needed (a lot of our invited guests didn't come), with the result that we *still* have some leftover cake now, a whole month after our wedding. And guess what? It still tastes delicious a month later, after being frozen and rethawed. :) We're excited to get our FREE anniversary cake in 11 months!

My daughter is the ultimate Ace of Cakes, Cake Wars etc. fan and devotee.  For her 12th birthday...she had a very specific wish list and cake that she drew out so I knew EXACTLY what she wanted :)  She also googled cake bakeries in the area, and after much exploration of all of their web sites decided that this was the one she was destined to get her cake from!  So, with drawing in hand, I dialed them up.  The owners Gregory (business) and Heidi (baking) seem to have a good thing going.  He took my order over the phone.  Five days later, I picked up the cake, which had everything the birthday girl hoped for including lots of fondant accessories including sushi, nailpolish, a crown, cd cases, flip flops, etc.  It was the hit of the party for sure!!!

The cake we requested came out better than we could have imagined. My husband and I live in Arizona and our wedding was in Michigan where both our families are. We relied on them to plan the wedding. I chose the design of the cake from a pictures on Lakes Cakes website. Ours was a three tier, off-centered, square cake. Each layer was a different flavor. My mom did the cake testing and she was right when she said the raspberry chocolate was the best cake she ever tasted. When I saw the cake, I couldn't believe how perfect it looked. I felt bad cutting into it. It was the most moist and flavorful wedding cake I've ever had. I highly recommend Lakes Cakes, you won't be disapointed. More...

My husband and I visited a few other bakeries in the area to find the right cake for the right price. We definitely didn't want to spend $800-1,000 on our wedding cake. Lakes Cakes was our last tasting stop, and they definitely didn't disappoint. We received the full spread. All of the cake samples were extremely moist and the fillings were very flavorful.

We were quite impressed with the plentiful options to choose from, our hostess, and the excellent price! We only paid for 125 people, but the cake was made to feed about 145 people. It was great! Plus the piping design on the cake turned out fantastic. It was exactly what we were looking for and we paid under $400! Half the price of all the other bakeries we visited.

We heard rave reviews about the cake after our wedding. Some people actually confessed to having multiple pieces just to try the different flavors! We highly recommend Lakes Cakes to all of our family, friends and anyone else who is in search of a great place to get their wedding cake for a bargain without foregoing quality!

Working with Heidi was so easy and pleasant! We showed her a couple of pictures of what we were looking for, and she did a fantastic job! All of the cakes we tasted were absolutely amazing and she gives you the opportunity to mix and match as much as you want. I can definitely recommend the peanut butter mousse with the chocolate cake. We got so many compliments on the cake, not just for how pretty it was, but for how great it tasted. Very affordable too! More...

Lakes Cakes provided us with all my wife and I could have ever wanted for a wedding cake. It looked amazing and tasted even better. Their website speaks for itself, but the price was as reasonable as we had seen. No charge for even fresh fruit in the layers of the cake! Hands down lakes cakes was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. More...

Hello, we were very satisfied with your company, The cake was beautiful, the only problem we had was that some of our guests said that the cake was very dry. Me and my husband did not get to try it because we were so busy, so i cant say from our experience how it was. Other then those complaints everything else went well. We are looking forward to getting our personal cake on our 1 year anniversary. Thank you for your buisness. More...

I wasn't able to get my wedding cake from Lakes Cakes due to a prior commitment, but they did our wedding favors- very delicious cookies! She did a phenomenal job getting our unique cookies just right to match the theme of our wedding. I also got cookies for a baby shower I was throwing around the same time. I would very happily recommend Lakes Cakes to anyone! More...

Having a reliable vendor to supply your wedding cake is very important � and for that I give a 5/5. The cake tasted good, the service was great, the response to all my questions and needs were great, presentation was outstanding, but the cake almost fell over and I am not sure why. As beautiful as it was, my husband hurt his tooth on the sugar candies, as did I, that decorated the tiers. I would give the overall rating a 4/5. In all fairness, we had candles around the cake, and that may have made it fall. I didn�t know the little balls on the cake would be that hard on your teeth. I would recommended this supplier, but the above is what I would do different. More...

I am not a creative person, so it was hard to think of ideas for a cake. But with the ideas that I gave Heidi, she created the most beautiful wedding cake that I have ever seen!! Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted amazing. The cake itself was moist and the frosting was not sugary sweet. We received many compliments about the cake, and I could not agree more. I can't wait for our one year anniversary cake!! More...

I am so glad we went with them; the cake tasted as marvelous as it looked. More...

Heidi and Greg were great to work with! They helped with every aspect of picking out our wedding cakes and favors. We had a cake on everytable and needed to incorporate a gluten free cake for the bride. They were able to deliver all the cakes and they tasted great. We recieved numerous compliments from guests.
The only thing we didn't like was the cake design...we had pictured a smoother more fondant-like cake topping without any decorative icing drops on the top or sides of the cakes. While the cake was very nice looking it was simply not what we had pictured.
I would definitely recommend Lakes Cakes to others and simply suggest you provide them with a picture of exactly what you want. They do great work, are very professional and make picking out and desigining a cake seem effortless.

I had a pretty specific idea of the kind of cake I wanted and the design ect. Lakes cakes is the BEST cake in town, quite possibly the whole Midwest! AND its the greatest priced. I would NEVER recommend anyone else for a wedding. Our wedding cake was just phenomenal. I am still getting complements to this day! Despite the fact that for the price of the cake we also get an anniversary cake, I saved the top because the rest of the cake was big enough to feed all my guests and then some! I just couldn't have asked for more from Lakes Cakes. You'd be crazy not use them for your wedding. More...

Lakes Cakes is a very reasonably priced bakery. While other bakeries were $3.50 and up per slice - Lakes Cakes starts at $2.60 a slice. Other places also charge you additional for design work, Lakes Cakes doesn't. That definitely makes a huge difference in price. The cakes are also delicious...tasted so much better than the designer cakes places that were $3.50-$4 a slice. Heidi was great to work with and when you go to do a cake tasting she has you taste all the cakes and different frostings and fillings -all the other bakeries make you choose 2-3 flavors and don't let you taste them all. She also made the sugar cookie favors that I had at each table setting for all my guests - they were soooo good and nice - big, thick cookies like Cookies By Design, but actually tasted like sugar cookies instead of dry nothingness. Heidi was also really flexible and willing to change designs on the cookies and cake up to a week or two before the wedding and doesn't charge anything. They also came on time as promised which is very important. I would definitely recommend Lakes Cakes to anyone for their wedding or other special event - Birthday, Graduation, Anniversary etc. More...

Lakes Cakes is AMAZING! We loved working with them for our wedding cake and our wedding cake was perfect! When first booking with Heigi and Gregory we went to their home where they provided us a sample of every cake, every filling, and every flavor of icing they had! It was wonderful. They kept in constant contact with us throughot our planning and were very open to any ideas we had. We couldn't have been more pleased. Our cake was everything we imagined and more! More...

Lakes Cakes was extremely professional to work with. The owners, Heidi & Greg, pay special attention to the details and treat your event with importance. For instance, when I went to sample the cakes at their home/office, Heidi brought a wonderful spread out on her personal china. This service far exceeded anywhere else I visited and was what made me choose Lakes Cakes. It also didn't hurt that the cakes are delicious :)

I only deducted stars because they were late in arriving to the wedding. However, there was terrible traffic & construction that day and nearly all of our vendors (and guests!) were late. Therefore, I do not think that it is an issue.

I highly recommend Lakes Cakes for the personalized service, beautiful designs and tasty cakes.

Heidi and Greg did an excellent job on our wedding cake. It started from the initial tasting all the way to the day of the wedding. When my new husband and I walked into the reception we were marveled by how beautiful our cake was. Besides us, it was the center of attention. All of our guest told us how gorgeous and how delicious the cake was. The cake was simply classy and beautiful. We could not have asked for more. I would recommend Lakes Cakes to anyone looking for a beautiful and delicious cake for their wedding. EXCELLENT JOB LAKES CAKES!!!!!! More...

From the very first conversation with Heidi, We knew that Heidi was the one! My Mom had found her and she was having a tasting when I called to talk and even though I interupted them, Heidi was so great and understanding and listened to what I had to say! My mom and I had a vsion for the cake and Heidi took the info and created a masterpiece!!!! My cake was both beautiful but also one of the best tasting cakes I have ever had! My husband(I Love that Word) is a Yankees fan and she made the best Groom's cake ever! It was in the shape of a New York Yankees Hat! He was thrilled! In addition to the cakes she also provided caramel apples as favors! They were a huge hit! I will reccomend Lakes Cakes to Everyone I know!!!!! More...

Heidi was great to work with. She is an amazing artist and baker! She adapted our wedding invitation design into a beautiful cake design exactly as we explained to her. The only problem was that the cake was still being set up as guests came into the hall and that the decorative metal cake stand rental we discussed had not been used. I was delighted with the cake design overall and the amount of cake was very generous. More...

Before selecting a cake vendor, I looked at pretty much all the vendors in our price point in metro detroit and I have to say, Lakes Cakes, tasted the best and I think was a great deal for what we got. Being foodies, we were very particular about the taste of the cake, and Heidi and Gregory's was the best, moist enough and tasted homemade.

When I called to set up the appointment, I mentioned we'd like almond cake, and although almond cake isn't apart of her regular cakes, she made some for us. *Note: The almond cake was a huge hit at the wedding. When we went to taste the cakes, Heidi had a plethora of choices separated by cake type and filling, so we could mix and match and come up with our own creation. We loved that we could have different flavors for different tiers of the cake. Also the cost of adding fresh fruit was minimal compared to other cake vendors. We also really liked how each tier had 3 layers of filling (something we only saw at one other vendor).

Everything turned out great, nothing went wrong, the cake was displayed beautifully. I have recommended them to all my many engaged friends.

Lakes Cakes was amazing to work with and my husband and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who needs any bakery item. I gave them a 4/5 for professionalism because they do not have a store front to travel to. We had to do our taste testing at their home, which turned out just fine and she was very professional at her home, but a store front would provide a better sense of security for clients. All in all, they were amazing to work with, professional, very well priced and our guests LOVED their cake! More...

Heidi & Lakes Cakes exceeded our expectations for our wedding cake vendor. Beginning with the best cake tasting a couple could ask for, we were overwhelmed with the choices of cakes & buttercreams/mousses. All other vendors couldn't match up in comparison... Leading up to the wedding, we changed our desires in style, and Heidi adapted without incident to deliver a cake exactly to our expectations. We were extremely happy with the high quality of cake for the price (below many competitors), and we are equally excited about our one year anniversary "mini"-cake included in the price... We would recommend Lakes Cakes to anyone getting married in/near Detroit, Michigan. More...

Heidi at Lakes Cakes was amazing to work with. As I was planning my wedding from out of town, everything was basically done over email. I provided her with pictures of what I liked and she made exactly what I wanted! Also, we required a partially gluten-free cake which most vendors do not do. Heidi was able to accomodate this with no problem at all, designing a beautiful 5-tiered cake. The cake was absolutely gorgeous - and delicious! We are already looking forward to our anniversary cake. Thanks Heidi!! More...

As mother of the bride-to-be I was looking for a bridal shower cake. The cake was beautiful and more importantly, it was absolutely delicious---it was the hit of the shower! My friend liked it so much, she ordered her son's engagement party cake from Heidi. I also ordered the wedding favor cookies and the grooom's cake---these were beautiful and delicious, as well ! Aside from being a fabulous baker and easy to work with, Heidi goes beyond the call of duty. When the groom's cake was taken to the reception venue, one of the staff moved the cake in such a way that the corner was damaged. I called Heidi and she immediately went to the club, frosting in hand and repaired the damage. She's wonderful !!! The only reason Heidi did not bake the wedding cake is that I gave a nonrefundable deposit to another baker, prior to knowing about Lakes Cakes. Needless to say, Lakes Cakes will be making all of my special occasion baked goods in the future. I love Heidi and Lakes Cakes.

Lakes Cakes is absolutely awesome!!! You will not find better cakes or better service for your money! Heidi was very patient while we waited to decide on our design (we're talking months here!) and could not have imagined anything more beautiful. She matched the color perfectly to our bridesmaids dresses too! B ut hte most important part was that it was DELICIOUS! We ordered about 80 extra servings for our cake and not a crumb was left behind. Everyone is still talking about the wonderful flavors and texture and they all want to have a piece of our free anniversary cake we get from them next May!

Thank you Heidi for making a perfect cake for our perfect day!

No words can describe the deliciousness of their cake. We hope to continue buying our cakes from Lakes Cakes for years to come. The drive is a bit long, but the cake is well worth it. Our only problem was deciding between the many flavors and combinations available. Our guests all enjoyed the cake as well as the different flavors we chose for our wedding cake. Many of our guests were surprised to find that one of our tiers was cheesecake since the dimensions of the cake were the same as the other tiers. Lakes Cakes was very accommodating of our gluten-free guests as well. The drawing of the cake was so beautiful - it was really a work of art in itself. More...

Found Lakes Cakes website on-line not knowing how close they were to our venue. Only met with Heidi twice but she captured the image of what I wanted our cake to look like to perfection. All communication was done via e-mail for the most part. Heidi was great in communicating as that's the easiest method as the clock ticks down. She was extremely accomodating as we fluctuated in the beginning btw. having a cake vs. cupcakes. She even made a special diabetic cake for the groom and his Father. That says a lot about the quality and dedication Heidi has. I think I knew from the moment we left our cake testing experience that that was who I wanted to make our wedding cake. We had numerous compliments on the cake. I will definitely recommend and use Lakes Cakes for any upcoming special events. Thank you so much Heidi! More...

I had a very pleasant experience with Lakes Cakes. Heidi is very professional, yet down to earth. Her cake tasted amazing, and she was the cheapest price of all the vendors I priced in the Rochester area. She is willing to mix and match and work with you for what you want on your wedding cake. I had three different types of cakes with multiple types of filling for my 200 person wedding, and it was decorated based off a custom invite that I designed. It looked and tasted fabulous! I planned my wedding from out of state and she was always willing to talk over the phone or email to answer any questions. She also is very reliable and actually called me before the wedding to confirm when she was bringing the cake to the reception hall and to make sure I didnt have any last minute questions. It is a BIG help and stress reliever when the vendor calls you to confirm that they have everything set for your day. The cake looked perfect and I didnt have to stress at all! More...

It was wonderful working with Lakes Cakes for our Wedding Cake. My husband and I are both vegan so finding a vegan wedding cake wasn't fun until we found Lakes Cakes. Probably the best cake I have ever had. At our wedding (we had about 72 people there) we were the only vegans, and everyone there made sure to note that the wedding cake was the best cake they had ever had, totally surprised that it was Vegan. They are more then fair when it comes to pricing. Dealing with Lakes Cakes was honestly the easiest part about getting married! More...

You were wonderful to work with and your website is great. The website gave us a good idea of what your cakes were and when we did the taste test, the amount of cakes to taste were more than generous. The price was also in line with what we wanted to spend. On our big day, you delivered and set up just as promise. Your cake (all five layers) were delicious and also the cake was beautiful. Thank you so much, we will recommend you to as many people that we know! You were great!!!! Thanks so much for helping make our day special!

The customer service I recieved from our intial visit (even before the day I selected Lakes Cakes as my wedding cake vender) was beyond what anyone could imagine. Not only will I never forget our special day but I will also never forget the people who made it all possible....Thank You LAKES CAKES!!

Working with Heidi was great! When my then fiancee and I met her at her home I felt really comfortable. I had never had to decide so many things as I did with the wedding and she made the cake part easy. We talked and tasted and though we were able to decide on a shape, and # of tiers, When we still didnt know what flavor, Heidi sent us home with the rest of the samples that she'd made. I was glad that she was ok with doing all of our communication via email after that first meeting. We planned our Ann Arbor MI wedding while living in Boston. I felt comfortable that I was going to get what I asked for even though we werent meeting face to face. The cake turned out BEAUTIFUL!!!! I think my guest took more pictures of that than anything else honestly! And it was really good. I had some for breakfast the next day~ Over all I would totally recommend Lakes Cakes. More...

They provided us with a cake for our theme wedding and personalized it for us & our children. They provided our cake, cup cakes, and cookies, all which were great tasting and looked wonderful! Heidi was wonderful to work with, I look forward to doing business with Lakes Cakes in the future!! More...

We tried many bakers before settling with Lakes Cakes and they have by far the best cake for the price in our area. The cake is very moist and the fillings were all fabulous. We ended up with a five tiered cake and two sheet cakes most of which had different fillings and cake options so we did not have to decided on just one which I loved. More...

This company went beyond the norm for us. She took my husbands drawing and made it perfectly. We had 3 flavors half lemon/ half cherry for the sheet cake and the hand crafted design on top was banana. The cake just melted in your mouth. I would recomend this company to anyone who wants awesome service and a quality product for a great price this is your company for cakes. More...

Lakes Cakes was great to work with. Heidi responded very quickly & professionally to all my emails (and there were many) and the wedding cake was gorgeous. I emailed ideas and Heidi came up with a design that surpassed our expectations. We also ordered a football shaped University of Oregon groom's cake and the duck mascot was unbelievably detailed and perfect looking; the football shaped cookies we ordered were also perfect. The cake & cookies were delicious, all our guests loved them. More...

Lakes Cakes has the most DELICIOUS cake! Everyone at the wedding raved about how moist and tasty the cake was, and how it tasted homemade--but WAY better. We loved how creative they were, making a cake from a design in our head, not a book. I even surprised my groom with a specialty cake that was a steal. Overall, I feel lucky that we found them and would recommend them highly to anyone that wants a beautiful and incredibly tasty cake. More...

Wonderful.............. and as a bride with a gluten allergy it was such a relief to be able to have wedding cake on my wedding day because it was half regular cake and half cheesecake!

By and far the BEST wedding cake I have ever tasted!!! Comments from our guests were very much the same. Prices were very reasonable. The same cake elsewhere would've cost three times as much and definitely wouldn't have tasted so delicious! They were very easy and flexible with design. Great to work with! More...

I was very impressed with Lakes Cakes, they did a very well job doing exactly what they said they would. They went above and beyond to make my wedding cake a dream come true. I will recommend Lakes Cakes to anyone i know who needs a cake. The best part about my wedding cake is i didn't have to save the top for our one year anniversary, because Lakes Cakes guarntees a free fresh one!
Thanks again Lakes Cakes for the wedding cake of my dreams at an affordable price!!!

The vendor provided a wonderful cake tasting and answered all of our questions. There was so much we couldn't eat it all and she even allowed us to take the leftovers home......I told her we were looking for a cake with fresh fruit so she made sure she provided some fresh fruit along with the cake and filling samples so we could get an idea of the taste. We chose a cake with a creme/mousse filling as well as fresh fruit....the cake was absolutely scrumptious......all of our guests commented on how delicious it was.....we chose fresh flowers for the cake and the cake looked beautiful.....I found the cost to be extremely reasonable and my family now has a new place to get all of our cakes from!!!!!

We were very satisfied with Lakes Cakes. They were close to us and were willing to make changes and ajustments as needed. We had no idea what the cake would look like; all we asked was that it was basket weave pattern, we selected our flavors and said we wanted fresh flowers on the cake; they did all the rest and the cake turned out awesome. We received multiple comments on how good our cake looked and the mint chocolate chip flavor was a big hit! We would recommend Lakes Cake to anyone looking for a wedding cake. More...
