My First Wedding Season in Portland
Now that September has arrived and the orders are beginning to slow down, I can finally reflect on the last few months. We moved our shop from Keizer, OR to Portland, OR three months ago (why we decided to move in the middle of wedding season has much to do with a huge kitchen and a double oven…) and it’s been a whirlwind ever since.
We have been getting some wonderful orders from my fellow Portlanders (and surrounding areas) creative too! Just look at this awesome boombox cake ordered from Stephanie H. out of Hillsboro
One of my favorite wedding cakes of the season came from Emily H. in Portland. We delivered to the outdoor patio at Departure, a really excellent modern Asian restaurant in downtown Portland. The view was quite the backdrop for the cake!
And last but not least, I have to mention the 200 mini cakes made for Ashley P. for her wedding at the Crown Ballroom in downtown Portland. These little cakes were individually crafted for each of her guests and really complimented the opulence of her big day ! (photos via alturastudio.com/blog)
I have a few more fabulous cakes coming up before the season wraps up and look forward to more birthday cakes and special occasion cakes that are just as unique as the fabulous portlanders who order them!
