Do you need help choosing the best wedding cakes or bakeries for your Portland, Oregon event? If you're getting married in "The City of Roses," you have many options, from decorating your confection in candied rose petals, to covering the whole cake with icing buds. Embrace Portland's romantic image or create your own, entirely new theme.
Portland is known for its delicious coffee, so if you're looking for a cake that pairs well with your favorite beverage, you're in luck. Portland's bakeries are glad to help you design wedding cakes that not only look and taste spectacular, but embrace whatever theme you choose for your celebration.
First, decide what kind of wedding cakes you and your fiancé are considering. If you want a classic, tiered cake, you'll want to schedule tastings at certain Portland bakeries, whereas if you're going for a more unconventional cake, you'll find other bakeries that advertise their creative specialty. Always remember to make an appointment before going in for a tasting, to ensure you'll have the bakery's full attention.
Will you be shopping for wedding cakes, cupcakes, or some other kind of dessert? It's not uncommon for Portland weddings to serve two wedding cakes (including a groom's cake) in order to embrace a wide spectrum of tastes and decorations.
Birthday cakes are another opportunity to let your imagination run free. Portland bakeries can make cakes in any shape or on any theme, so consider the birthday honoree's interests. Don’t be afraid to ask bakeries if they can make a green cake in honor of the Portland Timbers.
Whether you have a firm idea in mind, or you're open to all suggestions, there are many professional bakeries in Portland who are ready to make you the perfect cake for any special occasion. Browse our vendor listings to get started on your search.
