Really good cakes. The buttercream is super yummy. I used them for a baby shower cake and cookies. The cookies were the best I have ever tasted

I can't say enough about Lakes Cakes. The quality of the cakes and attention to detail is outstanding. They have so many cake flavors and fillings to choose from . The customer service I received went above and beyond what one normally gets these days. I have found a new bakery for all my dessert needs! More...

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!

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...

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...
