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.

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)Sent on 02/05/2020

Team of Dream Cakes
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!
Johannah makes some of the best cakes in town! We recommend Dream Cakes to all of our clients still in need of a great tasting and beautiful cake. You won't be disappointed!
I love when my clients tell me they are working with Johannah! Dream Cakes are some of the best in our Portland Industry. Not only is their cake melt-in-your-mouth-amazingness, their designs and ability to accomplish difficult embellishments is incredible. Your guests will enjoy seeing a work of art and be even happier when they are eating it! Johannah is also incredibly kind and sweet, wonderful to work with and communicate with. She brings next-level-moisture to the world of cake - you will be ecstatic to have her cakes!
We met Johanna a little over a year ago when looking into cake designers to recommend to our clients. We fell in love with her sweet personality and great tasting sweets! She has many options to choose from and strives to design a cake that fits perfectly with the theme of the event. We recommend her to all of our brides who are still in search of their dream wedding cake. Johanna is amazing to work with-- you won't regret choosing Dream Cakes! -Jessica Gardner, Private Events Coordinator for NW Events and Environments
