Jaciva was wonderful to work with for our wedding day cake! My husband's family loves Jaciva and uses them for many birthdays, graduations, etc so it was never a question whether or not we would use them for our wedding day. They provided us with a great cake tasting and were able to do 7th heaven cake as one of the flavors even though it's not a traditional wedding cake flavor. The cake looked exactly as we wanted and had the perfect amount for our guests :)

If you want a beautiful and delicious cake you HAVE to go Jaciva's!!! We found Jaciva's at a wedding show and I fell in love with the cake itself. My fiance and I went in to have a taste test and look at decorating option and fell more in love. The cake decorator (sorry forgot her name) was super friendly and definitely has the heart of an artist. She feels out what you want makes suggestions and overall makes your perfect cake! The ONLY thing I would say was when discussing the cake, the way she took notes was all over the place. When I checked in about a month before the wedding we had to go over things and she took more notes so she could understand what she wrote before. She ended up doing an almost 100% perfect cake, The color gradient up the cake was not quite as dark as we had discussed and in the picture she drew but in the end it was a minor thing and didn't matter. The cake was beautiful and it tasted beautiful. They were on time, reasonably priced compared to other bakeries (I did a 2 tier cake and 2 half sheet cakes) and by far the best tasting. I would highly suggest supporting this great, classic, family owned company!!

From our consultation to the wedding day, the staff at JaCiva's maintained a high level of professionalism and quality. The tasting was difficult because everything was so great, it was hard to narrow it down to our favorites. We ended up choosing three different flavors of mini cupcakes so our guests could try them all, and we also had a two-tier wedding cake for our cake cutting. They showed up early to the venue and set up a lovely display of the cakes, and our two-tier cake looked exactly like the photo we brought in to the planning meeting. They've been doing this for years and they know what they're doing! A huge bonus they offer is a FREE anniversary cake if you return their dowels and serving materials!

I chose JaCiva's Bakery for my wedding cake from the recommendation of my wedding planner. I was NOT disappointed. The cake was so beautiful. It was exactly what I had asked for. It was delicious, moist, flavorful, and very impressively decorated. The cake decorators did an outstanding job and I couldn't have been happier. They helped make my wedding perfect. I was so thrilled with JaCiva's that I ordered my niece's 16th birthday cake from them as well and they did a jaw-dropping job on the steampunk theme I requested. I would recommend JaCiva's to anyone.. anytime.. hands down the best bakery in Portland!

Jacivas cake is amazing - the cake was a hit at our wedding! They were responsive to calls. The only issue we had is that they didnt give us a call to notify us when our final payment was due (which is something all our other vendors provided).
Other then that they made a perfect cake. It was exactly what we wanted. Also love the fact that if you return the cake forms you get a certificate for a free anniversary tort cake.

Ordered two large sheet cakes as my wedding cake and had beautiful chocolate flowers on top. Guests loved this case. I wish the prices were a little lower for sheet cakes but guest being happy with the cake was worth it. We ordered three seventh heaven sheet cakes ! It was very family friend !!! I brought my calculator in and was looking for the best prices and staff was very friendly and showed me the easiest way for cutting the cake would be to get sheet cakes. ( Don't be afraid to ask for a discount if you are ordering multiple small cakes ) .

FH and I are using Timberline Lodge as our venue for the ceremony and the reception. As an added bonus, JaCiva's is the cake provider! We fly out to Portland to do some details (we live in FL) and while we where there we did a tasting to pick out our layers and talk about decorating the cake.

As part of the package from Timberline we get X amount of credit to work with when picking out which size cake and how elaborate the decorating can get (without us paying extra out of pocket).

We were served tea, coffee and given the binder to flip through as our consultant brought us our samples.

HOLY COW! We only needed a two tier cake, but are adding an extra sheet cake because we could not just pick 2 flavors.

The decoration allowance is pretty large and selecting our design was easy.

When you bring the supports back, you get a certificate for a small cake for your first anniversary, but since we live out of town we will miss out....Guess we will have to fly to Portland for our anniversary for the cake...yes, it is that good!

We chose JaCiva's to make our wedding cake based on their reputation and our cake-tasting experience. They are well known in Portland as being one of the best for wedding cakes, so we knew that our cake would be wonderful. We came to our tasting with an inspiration picture that showed a larger cake than we needed. Madison was great about using the photo as a starting point to create a smaller cake for us that was similar to the one in the photo. For our two layers we chose poppyseed cake with vanilla cream and raspberry filling, and fudge cake with Bavarian cream filling. Both flavors were delicious, but in the end the layer that stood out was the poppyseed. It was out of this world, and our wedding guests raved about it! JaCiva's delivered our cake to the venue in Camas, and it arrived on time and in perfect condition. I do think their cakes are a little too high in price, but we were willing to spend a bit more for the peace of mind in knowing that our wedding cake would be perfect.

My fiance and I didn't have a lot of time to shop around for wedding vendors, so JaCiva's was the only bakery we cake-tasted. With that said, if we didn't enjoy the cake, and/or had bad customer service, we would have moved on to other options. Even though there were only 9 basic cake flavors to choose (and 3 of them were chocolate--light, dark & red velvet), there was a long list of filling choices. When we first went in for a consultation, my fiance and I had one design idea in mind. On the way home, my fiance suggested a completely different idea, which we both loved. My fiance created a few simple drawings/sketches for me to take to the bakery before the deadline, and JaCiva's really did a fantastic job. The pricing was higher than I was expecting, but we didn't shop around, so I'm not sure how they compare to other bakeries. However, the cake was definitely delicious. We ended up getting a larger cake than we needed for the number of guests we had, since we wanted a variety of flavors. One really nice thing that JaCiva's does, is give you a certificate for a free (small) cake for your one-year anniversary, provided you return the cake boards/stands used for your wedding cake. This way, you're not eating a year-old cake for your anniversary!
