My First Wedding Season in Portland

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

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!

    What a good idea. I want to thank you for sharing it. We are from the Canada and really appreciate your webpage. I wanted to share my belief that if you are going to have a unique and/or elegant wedding then you really should invest the time in doing it right. We used for our wedding. They have everything! Your website is one of my favorite webpages. Your writtings are probably the greatest there are on the web. At any rate, I must get going but again, I want to thank you for such a excellent website.

    Hey… I’m having a bit of problem with the way your site is displaying. For some reason the text block overlaps the edge. I don’t know if it’s just me or have you heard this from other ppl? Just wanted to let you know in case you’ve been updating the site. Thanks! Lekisha Bouchaert

      Are you talking about the comment boxes? Also what web browser are you using? (windows, safari, firefox etc) and are you viewing on a mac or a pc? Thanks so much for the help!

    I love the top cake with Mario and Domo and the idea of a bunch of mini cakes at a wedding is really creative :)

  • Stephanie

    The cake at Departure is so pretty! Very simple and elegant! 200 mini cakes, wow… that must have been quite the order! Congratulations on that one, I bet the bride was so thrilled with how they turned out. It looks like Portland is treating you well Liz and I am glad :)
