BEST WEDDING CAKE EVER! I'm serious, Johannah makes the most delicious cakes. When meeting for our consultation she provided us with 3 mini cakes of her most popular flavors, which we were able to taste and share over a pint of beer at our favorite brewery down the street. So fun! We ended up choosing a white butter cake with white buttercream and filled with fresh raspberries and lemon curd. It was not only delicious, but beautiful. Looking forward to ordering another cake from her for our 1st anniversary. :-)

I don't think there's a more appropriate name than Dream Cakes because the cakes that come from Johannah are seriously delicious and dreamy. We opted for two flavors of cake for our wedding day and people couldn't decide which flavor they liked more, they were both seriously THAT delicious. One of the flavors we had was a carrot cake with a toffee crunch center and it was hands down the best carrot cake I've had in my life. Johannah was kind, professional, and obviously a talented baker. We've now been married for over a month and I'm still getting compliments on how delicious our cake was. If you're looking for the most delicious wedding cake in the Portland area, you have to go to Dream Cakes!

BOOK DREAM CAKES for your wedding or any event! We met with many vendors and tasted a lot of cake but when we met with Johannah at Dream Cakes and tried a few samples.....we knew after the first bite. Rave reviews from ALL our guests. Johannah was a pleasure to work with and we never had a single doubt that the day of our daughter's wedding was going to be more special by her simply delicious cakes!

Johanna was a delight to work with. Her passion for cake crafting was obvious by her loyalty to using high quality local ingredients and seasonal fruits. Her cakes are out of this world. You can’t beat the taste. We contacted her a year in advance with our specific cake design and color. The one disappointment we had was the color of the cake as off by a few shades. It didn’t ruin our special day but was a bit disappointed.

Amazing! Johannah was so awesome to work with. She assisted us in making decisions about style/design and also allowed us the freedom to choose whatever it was we wanted. Her cake is SO delicious! I can't say enough good things about the flavor combinations she has put together. We loved every flavor we tried. Our cake was wonderful and we got a ton of compliments on it. It was also delicious even days later :)

Buyer beware.
Their dream cake – watercolors and one large flower (as seen in the Dream Cakes website gallery & in photos supplied by Johannah).

A picture would be worth a thousand words . . . . . just imagine how sad the cake appeared with a small band of blush & berry on the bottom third of the bottom tier - the rest plain white.

The flowers on the cake were added after the fact. Thankfully, our florist came to the rescue minutes before the reception began.

Not only did they not get the desired watercolor appearance, but they were charged extra for it!?!
To add the large single flower that the couple requested (more than the requested 30 days in advance) would have been . . . extra! And you guessed it - $75.

Up-sell and along with it - up charge - expect everything to be another $75.
How much was spent on this vendor? Too much.

No phone – just email. No credit cards, just checks.
When we tried to creatively tackle the extra costs with less cake, we were met with a brick wall.
Difficult to work with.

The cake tasted great.

NOT their dream cake.

Johannah at Dreamcakes is not only an amazing baker she was a lot of fun to work with! All of our communication was very professional and she was great about reaching out and getting the details on track. She provided us with a wedding cake to feed about 125 people and our wedding favors! Both were amazing! Our cake was beautiful designed and delicious. Majority of our wedding guests told me that it was the best wedding cake they have ever had and Keep up the hard work Johannah! I loved working with you and would recommend her to anyone! Needless to say, I'm excited to order an anniversary cake!

Johannah did an amazing job! She was so great to work with, very personable, and super flexible - she made everything easy for us. She even matched the color of our cake to the exact turquoise color we used throughout the wedding. I highly recommend her and can't wait for our anniversary cake! :)

We were planning from out of state so we weren't able to do a tasting in advance but everything about the cake was great the day of our wedding. We had the chocolate cake with salted caramel filling as well as lemon curd with berries for the other layers.

We planned our wedding from Chicago and then San Francisco. It's kind of crazy to take a shot in the dark about wedding vendors, but we couldn't have been happier with our wedding cake from Johannah. She was very responsivve to emails. We went with dark chocolate with salted caramel and white cake with home-made lemon curd and fresh berry filling (two of the more popular options). I sent a few pictures of cake designs I liked, and when I showed up to the reception, and there was a beautiful wedding cake. And best of all, it was amazing. Our guests loved the cake and so did the bride and groom!
