Yes, it can taste as good as it looks! Whether it's a design by our talented pastry chef or your own custom idea, there's no better cake for your special day than one from Papa Haydn, Portland's oldest dessert house.

Wondering where to start? We suggest ordering a Sample Cake Box from our website. You can taste through our most popular cake and filling flavors, and pick your favorite.

Then, we have a number of pre-designed, ready-to-order cakes and miniature desserts on our website that you can pre-order and pickup from our Sellwood location. These have some customization, and you can decorate them with your own florals, cake toppers, or other finishing touches. These desserts typically have a two week lead time from ordering to pickup.

We can also create the custom design of your dreams. Fill out the custom dessert inquiry form on our website and our pastry chef Ashley Wilson will reach out to you to confirm the details of your request. Note that we ask for a minimum of two weeks from the date the request is confirmed to the date of pick up, so plan ahead.

Congratulations, and thanks for thinking of us for your special day!

Excellent Celestial Cakes!

I sincerely applaud Ashley Wilson with the Papa Hadyn Buttercream Line for her excellent communication in answering our questions leading up to crafting our celestial watercolor cakes with Stargate toppers. They were a gem at our wedding.

One of the highlights of our wedding

We are so happy we decided to go with Papa Haydn for our wedding! Ashley designed our cake exactly to our vision and EVEN BETTER than we ever could have expected. We thought the cake was delicious at our tasting, but the wedding day absolutely knocked our socks off. After our tasting, we loved the flavors but wanted more of a berry vibe, and she suggested two flavors鈥攃hocolate ganache with fresh raspberries, and lemon curd with huckleberry compote, both frosted with buttercream. She was even able to accommodate our vegan and gluten-free guests with mini cakes on the side. Sooooo good! Thank you guys for making our day perfect!

Papa Haydn never ceases to amaze our taste buds! We knew when we got engaged that we had to get our wedding cake through them and they did not disappoint! The flavors were fantastic as well as the presentation!
