    A Work of Art

    My wife and I were very pleased with the cake that Johanna made for us! Not only did the cake taste wonderful, but it looked so good that it was simply a work of art. We felt that we couldn't eat it because it was so pretty.

    Aside from the wonderful cake we had, Johanna did a great job when she met with us to go over the details of the cake to learn what we wanted.

    We would highly recommned Dream Cakes for your wedding cake -- you won't be disappointed at all!

    Delicious!

    Johannah was able to work with our desire to have a "couples cake" that was a small 7" round for our cutting ceremony. We stuck with a very simple design to compliment our dessert table, and she made it absolutely beautiful and SO delicious. Her tasting was also a really easy process, one that we really enjoyed. She provided 3 small cakes to take home and try without the awkwardness of someone staring at you while you judge their work. I would recommend her bakery to anyone for any occasion, and will definitely be back for my next cake-need! (In case you feel like drooling, she's on Instagram - @dreamcakespdx)

I'm originally from Reno, Nevada where at age four, I baked her first batch of cookies with my great-grandma. In 2008, I moved to Portland with my bestie and attended Oregon Culinary Institute where I graduated with degrees in both the baking and culinary programs. Since graduating, I has worked in and helped open several bakeries in the PNW before purchasing Dream Cakes. I believe cake is more than just a creative outlet, it’s my contribution to society. Cake plays a major role in our special memories, so for Pete’s sake don’t skip the cake, as my grandma would say!

Johanna is amazing to work with-- you won't regret choosing Dream Cakes! -Jessica Gardner, Private Events Coordinator for NW Events and Environments
