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!

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!

Heidi was a joy to work with from start to finish! The private tasting takes place in her beautiful home, and she has so many wonderful flavors, it was hard to pick! She was always available and responded quickly when we had any questions, and was very communicative leading up in the last few weeks before the wedding. We received so many compliments on the cake all evening. We couldn't of been happier! I

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 had two wedding cakes at our wedding. One regular one and one gluten and dairy free cake, which was quite a challenge. Lakes Cakes did an amazing job. The taste was great and they looked amazing. We loved their butter cream.
I can highly recommend Lakes Cakes.

Lakes of Cakes created a beautiful wedding cake for us! It was so yummy! Their rates are VERY reasonable and I loved how they listened to exactly everything that we wanted. They were on time, professional, and stayed to personally add the flowers our florist left to our cake. It was perfect!

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.

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.

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!!

Heidi was wonderful to work, from our first meeting with her we were sure we wouldn't have any problems. The cake looked wonderful and was more importantly DELICIOUS! Thank you!

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.

Very professional and know what they are doing. We loved our consultation that she gave us, it was very quick and she gave us lots of samples to choose from. I showed her a picture of exactly what we wanted and she did an amazing job recreating the picture that I showed her. All of our guests at our wedding said that our cake was the best wedding cake they had ever had at a wedding!
Overall we highly recommend!

We had a some issues with another vendor when it cake to our cake and chose at the last minute to switch to Lakes Cakes. They were very helpful and able to come in and save the day. The cake was beautiful and very delicious. When talking about the design we showed them a picture of a cake design that we wanted. They were able to provide several different options to improve on the cake and also save us money. In the end I would highly recommend them to any and all of my friends or family.

Our cake was absolutely perfect. It was as beautiful as it was delicious! Lakes Cakes is affordable, reliable and a pleasure to work with.
Kim · Married on 05/24/2015
Our cake was delicious! And was almost too beautiful to cut into! We had a 3-tier, square buttercream cake with ribbon and flowers as decorations. The guests particularly enjoyed the confetti cake and white cake with strawberry mousse filling. We used some sheet cake to keep costs down and overall, the price was very reasonable. Heidi was great to work with and I would highly recommend her to others!
