Gourmet Quality, Superior Design, Unmatched Value
All wedding cakes are not created equal. Each slice of a Lakes Cakes traditional torte style wedding cake is comprised of four layers of cake and three layers of filling. Many cake designers/bakeries in the Metro Detroit area provide only a two-layer, "birthday cake" style wedding cake. In addition, Lakes Cakes uses a very generous, custom serving guide chart. For example, a 100 serving Lakes Cakes wedding cake is invariably larger than the same serving size cake our competitors offer. The bottom line is that we provide you with more cake for your money. We appreciate that, from client to client, the budget can vary considerably. Therefore, it is essential to choose a wedding cake designer that offers a gourmet-quality, expertly designed cake at a fair price.
Another factor that separates Lakes Cakes from its competitors is that, in most cases, there is no additional charge for intricate side work design (created in buttercream). We won't "nickel and dime" you over details that many cake designers charge extra for. Like the look of fondant, but dislike the taste or price? Lakes Cakes decorators are highly skilled at creating that smooth fondant look with our exclusive, “not-so-sweet" real buttercream icing. At Lakes Cakes, you will communicate with the cake designer/owner herself, who will also be the one to deliver and set up your wedding cake. This ensures that your cake will be everything you envision it to be.
In addition to your wedding cake, please consider Lakes Cakes for your dessert table, edible wedding favors, or even a one-of-a-kind, personalized groom's cake.

Traditional Wedding Cakes
Each tier of Lakes Cakes' traditional torte style cake comprises four layers of cake and three layers of filling. Based on the number of servings you require, we will determine how many tiers your cake will have. You may choose a different cake flavor per tier at no added cost. Our wedding cake price per serving starts at $3.75. This includes buttercream filling, icing, side work, and buttercream flowers (if desired). Adding a premium filling such as a mousse, bavarian cream, coulis, etc., increases the price to $4.25 per serving. Our cake artist is also a qualified floral designer. If you provide fresh flowers for the cake, she will gladly arrange them on your cake at no charge.

These prices include a basic decoration on each cupcake, or garnish giving a hint to the cupcake's flavor. Additional charges may apply for more elaborate designs. A top cake is sometimes added traditionally for the bridal party or for the couple to take home. Pricing for this optional cake is subject to wedding cake "per serving" prices. Please note that with cupcakes, in addition to a delivery fee, there is also a small "setup" charge.
Kitchen Cakes (sheet cakes) are a cost-effective way to keep the overall price down. You can have a respectable sized display cake and save a little money with sheet cakes. Kitchen cakes are commonly used for events of 130 people and over. These cakes are kept in the back and not displayed. When all cake is cut and served, your guests will not know the difference between the main cake and kitchen cakes. Kitchen cakes come with a premium filling of your choice and amount to be just $2.00 per serving. 1/2 sheets serve 40 pp. = $80.00 and 1/4 sheets serve 20 pp. = $40.00.
Delivery charge is NOT included in the above pricing and is dependent on the distance between your venue and where Lakes Cakes is located in Commerce Twp. MI. Please email or call for a quote.
