    Dream cakes was great to work with! Johannah really brought to life a beautiful cake for us and was very easy to work with. This bakery is one of the highest rated in the Portland metro area, and it's clear why! Quality in the design and the taste we're definitely there and we loved the final product! Can't recommend enough.

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!
