Shopping for that dream wedding cake? Lakes Cakes is redefining the process, starting with a personal, detailed consultation/cake tasting with the head cake designer/owner herself, and finishing with the very same person always on site to deliver and set up each and every one of our wedding cakes. This insures that your cake will be everything you envisioned it to be. At Lakes Cakes, we use only the freshest and finest ingredients, have close to 30 years of professional experience, and produce cakes that are without peer in the Metro Detroit area.

Lakes Cakes realizes that a wedding cake is an important, essential, focal point of any wedding reception. We price our cakes fairly and treat our clients with respect regardless of the size or scope of the wedding reception. The most important ingredient in all of our wedding cakes is getting them from us to you, exactly how you imagined!

Some of our many specialties include: Creating that smooth, fondant look with our special recipe "not so sweet" buttercream; Simulating the bride’s dress pattern into the cake; Creating decadent wedding cheesecakes decorated to look just like a traditional wedding cake.... and so much more! We can also adapt our cakes to those with special diet needs and/or restrictions, including vegan, gluten free, dairy, egg or sugar free.

For a personal experience in an increasingly impersonal world, call Lakes Cakes today!

Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?

What are your tasting hours?
We schedule cake tastings Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. Weekend appointments are subject to availability. Due to the high volume of cakes we do from May through October, (and also because you will be meeting with the actual person who will be designing your cake), weekend appointments are very limited during these months.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Wedding cake pricing is based on per slice and starts at $3.35 per serving. In most cases, we do not charge extra for side work design like many bakeries do. We also no not charge extra for cake shape. (i.e. round tiers are the same price as square and hexagon tiers)

We design our cakes to serve the required amount even without using the top tier.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?

We make all cakes, fillings and icings from the freshest and finest ingredients available. We also use gourmet quality items such as Madagascar bourbon vanilla,
 100% pure extracts and organic fruit when available. All of our cakes and desserts are preservative free.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
All of our cakes are baked, at the most, two days prior to the wedding. Assembly and decoration are done the morning of the wedding when time permits. During busy times, assembly may be done the day before. We take great pride in delivering the freshest cakes available and take all precautions to insure this.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
Depending on the season, and logistic restraints, Lakes Cakes designs from 3 to 8 wedding cakes per weekend.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Of course. Most of our clients prefer Lakes Cakes to arrange the flowers on our cakes. We also can provide flowers at an additional fee.

Lakes Cakes rents a wide variety of stands and also fountains. We charge a refundable deposit that is returned to you in full, when the rented item is returned.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Delivery is based on the distance between the reception site and where Lakes Cakes is located in Commerce Twp MI. Detailed pricing is found on our website.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

Heidi is very professional and has it all together with her cake business. I sampled many of the cakes at bridal shows and was not willing to compromise on something less than what I could make myself. Then I found Heidi from reviews on line. 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.

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.

By far this cake was the most delicious cake I have ever had! The cake looked exactly the way I pictured ( It was leaning a little but not enough for me to complain about). Red Velvet was the best flavor and it was amazing. The prices are incredible and the cake was great.

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!

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 :)

Lakes Cakes did an absolutly AMAZING job with our wedding cake!! It was a 4 tier square cake with buttercream frosting. 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!!

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!

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.

We asked them to whip up two birthday cakes for us to bring to our rehearsal dinner with only two weeks notice and the cakes were gorgeous! These were precursors for our wedding cake, which was beautiful and delicious too. Not too often you get both in a wedding cake:)

We're already asking them to do another cake for us next month! They're awesome!

Lakes Cakes gave us a lot of great flavor options and we ended up choosing 5 different options for our cake which our guests loved because they could choose which flavor they wanted. The cake looked gorgeous! And they said as long as there were flowers set aside by the florist, they would put flowers on the cake the day of the wedding when setting up. Lakes Cakes was incredibly flexible with us; we had a change of guest count within a week of the wedding and they were very helpful with us changing things around with little time left. Thanks Lakes Cakes, everything was great!

Our wedding cake was absolutely delicious! We were looking forward to having a slice of each flavor- we had 5 different kinds. The outside of the cake was decorated beautifully! We had white icing with fondant appliqué on the outside. Heidi and her husband really did a great job! They even created a side cake of a baseball glove holding a baseball with the Detroit "D". Thanks so much! We are looking forward to our anniversary cake! Only 11 months to go!

We wanted a wedding cake that reflected our personality and Lakes Cakes was eager and willing to work with us. What impressed us most was their creativity. Heidi did an amazing job on our cake, which incorporated so many details that were unique to us as a couple. It tasted as good as it looked too! We received several compliments from our guests on how delicious it was. In addition, we planned our wedding from afar and Heidi was so responsive, making it that much easier to prepare for our big day. We highly recommend Lakes Cakes and can guarantee you will be thoroughly impressed! Thank you again for the beautiful cake!

dear heidi...the cakes for katie and brian's wedding were superb! we had individual cakes on each table which also served as the centerpieces, and they were beautiful! you were so flexible on working with us on 5 different flavors & designs that matched the vintage spring theme. it was a unique touch to the wedding & the guests enjoyed the interactive touch of cutting their own cake & trading flavors with other tables if they chose! they were delicious and there was plenty of cake for our guests! we appreciated your flexibilty and input with the bride/groom cake--the 2 tiered "bridal party cake" with 2 satellite cakes made a nice presentation for the cake cutting! the cakes were all delicious with so many flavors/fillings to choose from. it was a pleasure working with you, you were attentive to every detail! with 3 other daughters, i would love to work with you again!

We ordered a small tiered cheesecake. It was only to serve 12-15 people, but something happened and she had to change the cake to the next size up. She didn't charge anything extra and we ended up with a ton of cake, which i was happy for because the cheesecakes from Lakes are delicious!
Thank you so much for you hard work! I couldn't have asked for anything more.

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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!

Lakes Cakes made us four kinds of VEGAN CUPCAKES! It was difficult to find a baker in our area who would cater to our needs. Heidi at Lakes Cakes was super knowledgable about our alternative diet. Our cakes were SO SO delicious. I'm looking forward to our free anniversary cake!

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.

Heidi was truly amazing and very proffessional. Our wedding cake was more than what we could have asked for. We had an idea of the cake we wanted for our day, she ran with it and created a work of art. We felt bad for cutting into it! Truly amazing experience all around and I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Lakes Cakes to any couple looking into a talented and affordable cake maker.

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!!

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.

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.

All the guests at our wedding raved about the unique style of our cake and the taste. I will definitely use them in the future for other cakes and would recommend them above any other cake vendor we met with.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Our cake was made to feed 220 people and we only had 180 at the reception yet the whole cake was completely gone by the end of the night.
And multiple people came up to us at the end of the night raving about the cake.
One of the bridesmaids actually loved it so much she is planning on using Lakes Cakes for her wedding next year.

Heidi was absolutely wonderful to work with. Extremely professional with an outstanding attention to detail. We did 170 cupcakes in six different flavors as well as a small cake to cut. We received so many compliments not only on how beautiful everything looked but how amazing everything tasted. I can not recommended Lakes Cakes enough. Fantastic.

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.

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.

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.

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.

They had VERY GREAT PRICES for cakes of this magnitude! The actual cake was probably the best thing I've ever tasted. They're very talented and I would suggest to go there immediately.

I loved the fact that each layer of my cake could be a different flavor at no extra cost! We ordered a lot of extra cake, but my guests loved sampling the five different flavors we had! The cake itself looked beautiful and was just as I pictured it! Great vendor and very easy to work with!

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.

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!!

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!

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!!!!!

I can't wait for our one year anniversary so I can taste my wedding cake again (she can recreate the top of your cake for your first year anniversary).

Thank you Lakes Cakes!

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!

The service was excellent. Heide took great care of us and provided us with a beautiful cake. We did order a Groom's cake that was not laid out at our reception, but i think this was the hall's fault. Otherwise, we got a lot of compliments on our cake - we designed it from the pictures we saw in her book - she did awesome!

I'm sure she can create just about anything on a cake. I would reccomend her to everyone...and the price was right. She also offered cakes for people with allergies.

I would highly recommend this vendor for all your cake needs. She presented us with a variety of tasters upon the initial meeting and we decided on five different flavors of cupcakes and one small cake for the wedding party. Everything tasted amazing and looked beautiful. Thank you Lakes Cakes for making my wedding even more wonderful. ~Michelle & Chris Walczyk~

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Lakes Cakes responded with the following comments:

When the bride returned the stand she rented from Lakes Cakes, she made no mention of any problems with the cake and had only compliments. This cake looked beautiful (as our pictures demonstrate) when we left it at the venue. Our cakes are carefully constructed and would not "fall" unless the cake was improperly moved, bumped or exposed to excessive heat. As to the edible gumpaste pearls, they were used on the cake per the bride's instruction, but we will certainly warn future clients that they are a crunchy rather than soft.

There was a point in time where I did not think they remembered I had a contract with them; I was coming from out of state on limited time and they were not flexible with meeting me or offering cake tasting options. Their response was, "if it sounds good, it is good." The cake was delicious, but for any bride working with a vendor out of state its pretty important to feel valued as a customer through lines of communication. Even worse our venue threw away our top layer of cake without telling us and we only tasted our cake during our first cake cutting.

Lakes Cakes responded with the following comments:

It is unfortunate that this bride writes a less than stellar review of our services in light of the great lengths we went to accommodate her. It is also perplexing why she would think we forgot we had a contract with her. ??? With all the details set, as this cake was, there was no need to
"keep checking in" with the bride during the months leading up to the wedding, though we did have numerous email correspondences leading up to the wedding... many more than usual when dealing with an "out of state" client.

The only thing left to determine in this case, was the cake flavors. The bride came to town a few times during the summer and requested to come in for a sit down tasting on very short notice. She also requested a weekend appointment, which we simply cannot do during the busy summer months. Most clients who hire us to design their wedding cakes appreciate the fact that we devote all resources and attention to their cake on the busy weekends and that is why we rarely do weekend appointments from May through October.

There was a Sunday that we tried to squeeze her in, in addition to
a multitude of weekday appointments, but this bride declined. It did not "fit" with her schedule.

We also suggested that she could pick up a generous box of samples at any time, to take home, which she also declined. Lastly, 3 days before the wedding, this client told us she was going to drop off ribbon for the cake. A week prior, she had finally picked out some flavors that sounded good from our website. As a nice gesture, we suggested that we make up some samples of the cakes/fillings she picked out and would hand them off to her when she dropped off the ribbon. Sadly, the samples went to waste because the bride didn't bother to pick them up.

The cake tasted great, was delivered on time and was pretty much a hassle free experience. Two things bothered me a little. The first is that the cake was crooked, towards the end of dinner we had to cut the cake because our wedding planner was worried it might tip even more. The second is that we had to buy the rhinestone ribbon for the bottom of the and send that to them. For how expensive the cake was, I found this to be a little odd. Overall (besides the lean) the cake was beautiful and the service was excellent.

Lakes Cakes responded with the following comments:

The cake, when we left it, was beautiful and standing straight. Photos of the specific cake are proudly displayed on our website, here at Wedding Wire and also on Facebook. The cake was sitting in the middle of the dance floor, which normally is not the safest place for a cake to be, in light of all the guests that bustle by, but we can not say what happened to the cake after delivery, or if the cake was moved.

In regards to the client supplying ribbon and/banding, this is our policy, mostly in part, because we like to leave the decision as to specific color(s), type, width up to the client to insure it is 100% accurate. There are various types of rhinestone ribbon for example, ranging in price from $.50 to $50.00 per foot!

As far as this cake being "expensive", most of our clients who have "shopped around", find that Lakes Cakes gives you quite a lot for your money.. i.e : No extra charge for cake shape (this was a hexagon); no extra charge for detailed sidework (which this cake had); no charge for flower arrangement; super generous cake and filling sample platter or take home box, just to name a few.

We got our wedding cake from here and the cake was exactly as we designed it and tasted really good. HOWEVER, when our one year aniversary rolled by they would not give us our complimentary aniversary cake that they offer. My wife emailed them regarding ordering it, and got an auto response that they were out of town on vacation, so we waited. Two weeks go by no response, so I call and leave a message, another week goes by STILL no response. Finally I call again and talk to the owner, and ask about our aniverasy cake and she informs me that "its too late and they dont just give out cakes whenever" and wondered why I am just now calling. I explain why I am calling after our aniversary and she claims she never got my wifes email or my voice mail. She says the email probably went to spam. So even tho after explaining the situation she was not going to give us our aniversary cake. Mind you she was extremly rude to me on the phone, and rude to my wife over email after she sent them the auto response that we recieved from their email. This is a shame cause my wife and I are now expecting and we were going to order the baby shower cake from them, but not anymore. These people are NOT professional.

We got our wedding cake from here and the cake was exactly as we designed it and tasted really good. HOWEVER, when our one year aniversary rolled by they would not give us our complimentary aniversary cake that they offer. My wife emailed them regarding ordering it, and got an auto response that they were out of town on vacation, so we waited. Two weeks go by no response, so I call and leave a message, another week goes by STILL no response. Finally I call again and talk to the owner, and ask about our aniverasy cake and she informs me that "its too late and they dont just give out cakes whenever" and wondered why I am just now calling.

It is unsettling, that after designing a beautiful wedding cake for this client, the couple now writes a hateful, untruthful review because we need not give them a free anniversary cake 1 MONTH after the one year date. Lakes Cakes offers a fresh, complimentary one year anniversary cake to couples who contract us to design their wedding cake. The client never pays for this. It is something we do simply as a nice gesture. Sadly, many take advantage of this or twist it into something it is not. The only stipulation we make, (which is noted in the contract the couple signed), is that the cake must be ordered a week prior to the anniversary date and that the offer is only valid for one week there after. It IS an anniversary cake after all. We would have been happy to have the couple’s cake ready if they had contacted us a week before the anniversary before we closed for vacation or even extended the offer for another week. Instead, they waited until the day of their anniversary, while we were on vacation. Instead of making arrangements at that time, the couple chose to wait an entire month later before finally calling us and demanding their cake. It is an outright lie that when the groom FINALLY called a month after the anniversary, his call was not returned. In fact, it was returned within 15 minutes! We left a message, and HE chose to wait a week before contacting us again. At that point, the offer had expired. We would have been more than happy to make them a cake if they had placed the order a week before the anniversary like most of our clients do, or upon our return from vacation, but we did not hear from the client for over a month. In addition, it is not our policy to call clients and remind them that their anniversary is coming up.

I would not recommend this business. They are extremely unprofessional when it comes to any customer inquiries. The cake tasted and looked fine. The real problem is with how they deal with customers. They don't make you feel comfortable at all. I posed some basic questions about the cake and in response received very unprofessional, sarcastic, and resentful emails. When I returned the cake stand after the wedding, my deposit was thrown at me and the door slammed in my face with no "thank you for your business" or anything. It was as if they were shocked I would dare to ask a questions and doubt them at all. They obvious have never heard the old saying "the customer is always right." We paid in full on-time and did not deserve to be treated as if we were deadbeats. The questions that were posed were questions that any discerning customer would ask so that everything was accurate and our notes and her notes were accurate as to the final product. All in all it was not a good experience. It is deceiving because they are nice when you walk in the door and pay, but once you start asking more than one question they turn on you and become very unprofessional. I would find another vendor for your cake. If you have any concerns about the setup of the cake, the flavors, or anything to do with price, they will pretty much throw it back in your face. Also, they are very difficult to get ahold of by phone so any questions that need answering will go unanswered for a few days or more if they decide to check their email. So, needless to say, I would have rather paid a little bit more and been treated alot better with another company.

"The customer is always right" has limits, especially when the customer has a plan to extort undeserved money and fabricate completely slanderous claims towards a small business. Lakes Cakes is one of the most frequent and favorably rated wedding cake vendors on this site. We stand firmly behind our ability to surpass our clients expectations, as 90 some reviews can attest. Lakes Cakes went to great lengths to satisfy this customer. We met again on short notice, a month before the wedding and spent an hour helping him and his fiancee decide their final cake flavors. This decision is usually made months earlier at the initial cake tasting/consultation. We also downsized the cake per the couple's request, by 30 servings with no penalty, even though the contract signed was originally for a much larger cake. The countless emails and phone calls received by them were answered in a timely manner, which can be verified by our email and caller ID log. Even when the rented stand was returned dirty and caked with old buttercream, He was handed, not "thrown" back his refundable deposit in full. (Lakes Cakes does reserve the right to keep part or all of a refundable deposit for items that are returned dirty or broken as contractually stipulated). We were surprised when he responded to our invitation to review our services with an accusation that we substituted a "cheaper" cake filling for what he requested, "mixed up the cake flavors" and indicated that he wanted compensation. This is what he refers to as his "basic questions". When the notes taken at the final meeting and contract were forwarded to the client and showed that Lakes Cakes provided him with the exact cake and fillings he requested, his behavior changed and he became like a petulent child that had been proven wrong. In the end, our invitation to review became an extortion tool... refund back money for a beautiful, delicious cake, (which he admits here) or risk a bad review. We would advise other honest and hardworking business owners to avoid this couple.
