Wedding Cake was Wonderful!

My husband and I went to taste cakes at Renae鈥檚 home and loved all of the options that we tasted. We ended up ordering a cardamom cake with matcha buttercream for two of the layers and vanilla cake with hazelnut buttercream for the third layer. Throughout the night we received compliments on the cake鈥檚 look and taste! Renae did a wonderful job and we couldn鈥檛 be happier with the results!

Delicious and beautiful wedding cake!

Renae is an artist! Not only does she design beautiful cakes, but they are delicious!!! My husband and I went wedding cake tasting at 5 different bakeries and as soon as we tried Custom Cakes we knew we had found our baker! Not only did Renae welcome us into her home and was prepared with several different cake flavors, frostings and fillings, but she was confident in her skills to deliver the cake I envisioned for my wedding. I found an inspiration picture on Pinterest, showed it to her and she throughly discussed what she would use and how she would recreate the same cake for our special day! And boy did she surpass our expectations! One of the things I was most excited to see (and taste!) at our wedding was our cake and I LOVED it! I felt a little bad cutting into it because it looked soooo pretty! 馃槀馃槄馃槏 We love her cakes so much we have gone back to her twice after for special occasions to buy more! If you want delicious, fresh, beautiful cakes, Renae is your gal! Also, she鈥檚 pretty awesome herself! 馃挀馃憤馃徏馃憤馃徏鈽猴笍

Renae Heineck
Renae Heineck
Owner, Sugar Artist, Baker, Boss

A native Oregonian, I created my business when I was in high school, about 30 years ago because I loved baking with my Mom and she gifted me a cake decorating class...and an Easy Bake Oven. Even though I followed a career in technology, I returned to the sugar arts when I became a Mom and have always had an enterpreneurship drive. We built our home with a licensed domestic kitchen and I enjoy meeting with clients for "cakesultations" around the farm table. While working in retail bakeries, I learned what type of ingredients I didn't want to use in my tried n' true scratch recipes. I grow some of the berries and source locally as much as I can. Supporting my community and small business is important to me and I am blessed to live and work In the Willamette Valley and beautiful PNW.

Sassy helper

Tera helps during peak wedding months with baking, prep work, and purchasing ingredients. She is also a "professional cake taster" as depicted in the picture.

Sassy helper #2

Lisa always has my back when I need an extra set of hands when we've been hired to cut and serve cakes and all I have to pay her is more Italian meringue buttercream on gluten-free cupcakes.
