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!

INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Cookies, Cupcakes, Dessert Buffet, Groom's Cake, Pastries
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Pickup, Tastings
What dietary needs can you accommodate?
Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Vegan
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?

Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
All of Lakes Cakes' tasting/consultations are private, comprehensive and very generous. There is no charge for this service.* 
 
 *(The wedding date must be within 6 months away to receive a complimentary "sit down" cake tasting/consultation. Outside of that time frame, we still offer a consultation, but charge a $25.00 non refundable fee that can be applied to your balance if you choose to book with us. )
 
 We also have an option where the couple can simply come and pick up a very generous box of samples to take home and try at their leisure. This is in lieu of an actual face to face, sit down appointment. Details of the cake will be finalized via email and/or phone. This option has become very popular in recent years for couples with busy and tight schedules.
What are your tasting hours?
We schedule cake tastings Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 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)
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
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?
The majority of our cakes are custom designed, although we can easily replicate any pre designed style.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
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.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
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
