Lakes Cakes is once again pleased to announce our selection as Wedding Wire's Couple's Choice Award for 2021. This prestigious award is decided solely on client reviews. We thank our customers for their kind words and praise. Read reviews from past clients HERE and also on The Knot

For quality, taste, and value, Lakes Cakes wedding cakes are without peer in the Metro Detroit area. See examples of our work in our Facebook galleries

All wedding cakes are not created equal. Each slice of a Lakes Cakes traditional torte style wedding cake comprises 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, unique 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. We offer "kitchen cakes" for the budget conscious, kept in the back and not displayed with the main cake. These cakes are economical for having a good-sized wedding cake while saving a little money using the kitchen cakes. Information and pricing are found below.

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. Are you looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind cake design? Why not use your dress or invitation pattern or design as inspiration. Again, we do not charge any extra for this service, making for a lovely, personalized cake.

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.

Have you ever heard of a wedding cheesecake? Lakes Cakes has been creating and decorating cheesecakes that look just like a traditional wedding cake long before it became popular. Please see wedding cheesecake pricing below.

In addition to your wedding cake, please consider Lakes Cakes for your dessert table, edible wedding favors, or even one-of-a-kind, personalized groom's cake.

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.
