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!

The most beautiful custom wedding cake ever! Very expensive, but it was the statement piece we were looking for and it was DELICIOUS! The coordinator we originally set everything up with left the company before the event, so I never felt like I reconnected with someone, but everything went smoothly on the event day. I also have not received my certificate for the anniversary cake, but I'm hopeful.
