The cake was amazing! Very good and looked beautiful. Also, if you wash and bring them the cake plates back they will give you a free cake for your one year anniversary! (not old frozen cake!) Overall very happy with the cake.

Our cake was gorgeous and delicious. They were even able to take a color swatch from our wedding colors so that it would be incorporated into the design. We also got a groom's cake which look phenomenal and also tasted delicious.

We felt we had the best wedding cake we've ever tasted at any wedding. We did 4 layers, all different kinds. It was so moist and fresh! 7th Heaven was our biggest layer and it was so fabulous. They advised us very well about size for our number of guests. And, you can get a fresh top layer for your anniversary if you bring back the supports, so you can be serve all of the layers at the wedding.

Our cake was perfect and reflected our unique tastes; we opted for a 3-tier (rectangular layer) cake with chocolate; pink champagne; and lemon for the flavors. The coordinator was able to help us select a design that represented a true and fair compromise between me and my fiance's tastes (me, modern; he, traditional).

The cake was magical, if not whimsical.

When you return the pillars for the cake, they give you a certificate that, on your year anniversary, you can use to get a single layer to celebrate.

My cake from Jaciva's turned out beautiful. Picking flavors was challenging because several were so tasty! We went into the store to try flavors and I felt a little talked down to. In fact, the woman shot down one of my cake ideas because she didn't think it would look good. She is the expert and was probably spot on with her recommendation, but I think it could have been handled more tactfully. We went with Jaciva's because they were available, their cakes are delicious AND most importantly, they don't use fondant so you can eat the entire piece of cake without peeling off the top layer! Unfortunately for us, we purchased sheet cakes from a less expensive vendor and our venue chose to serve those first instead of our actual wedding cake. I haven't talked to a single guest that actually got to try Jaciva's cake! Perhaps I should take to the wait staff since so one can account for the disappearing cake, cake topper and platform. Make sure your guests get to EAT this cake. It really is delicious.

They were great! Easy to work with from the start! I got excellent assistance during my tasting. The wedding coordinator brought a plate with a sample of about 8 of their most common cake/filling combinations. We had a great experience with this--other bakeries simple gave us a few slices of stale cake and filling that tasted like jam. You can tell that JaCiva's has a lot more experience in this area, as they also brought us coffee and had far more photo samples of their work. As for the end result, the cake was gorgeous--I hated to cut it! And absolutely delicious! Probably the best cake that I've eaten in my life.

If you want delicious cake then don't go anywhere but JaCiva's. Delicious, beautiful, and surprisingly affordable. They did a cake topper and 110 cupcakes for less than $400. Amazing.

I highly recommend Jaciva's bakery for any cake need that you may have. Not only is it completely melt in your mouth fantastic, but they do such amazing work to make it look just the way you want it to look too! I can't say enough good things about Tami! She helped me so much with finding the perfect wedding cake for my husband and I to share with our guests. The cake was beautiful and tasted so great. The groomsman cake was also really cool looking. Tami really heard all of our ideas for it and it was far better than I ever imagined it would be. Thank you so much for making my wedding day and the rehearsal dinner extra special with your yummy cakes. I really can't say enough good things about them. And, I keep craving them. I wish I lived closer. So very very good!

Wow! What a great wedding cake! My wife was able to select the perfect cake. It was so beautiful and very delicious with a great texture. I can't wait for our one-year anniversary when JaCiva's will bake a fresh cake so we don't have to pull an old nasty frozen cake out of the back of the freezer. What a great idea! Thank you JaCiva's for helping make our wedding day such a big blessing!

Our cake was included with our venue and they use JaCiva's. The cake tasted wonderful and was so pretty. They worked with us with what we wanted and offered advice as to what would look good. We chose red velvet and chocolate fudge as the 2 flavors and both tasted great. I like that they don't use fondant and the cake was poured with chocolate instead, which tastes much better! They even give you a gift card for a free topper on your one year anniversary so you don't have to freeze the top of your original cake.

We went in for our tasting and the consultant was great and actually engaged herself and gave us great tips and let us try ALL the flavors. The cake was a little over our budget but it came out AMAZING!!! We actually had servings for more than our total number of guests (even though the suggestion is for less) and almost all of cake was GONE they said! We had pink champagne, german chocolate, banana and then carrot cake. They were ALL amazing! So many compliments and it was so nice with no fondant yet it was still gorgeous!!! It fit perfectly with the rest of our decor you would think it was all done together.

WOW!! AMAZING CAKE!!! We have been using JaCiva's bakery for 20 years, and have never had a bad experience! So, it was easy to choose a wedding cake from them, and it was beautiful!! People commented that it was one of the most lovely cakes they had ever seen. And then they tasted it... and loved it even more! We had people going back for seconds and thirds just to taste all the flavors of each tier. I would highly recommend this bakery... you get excellent cake for a reasonable price, and they are so kind and easy to work with! We also used them to create our candies for the gift boxes, which came out perfect as well! This is a small, local business still owned by the same ma and pop that started it years ago, and deserves support to keep on making delicious desserts!!!

The cake turned out beautifully. We had given the bakery a challenge with the color of the butter cream. They came though with flying colors.

The tiers were perfectly off-set and decorated with white chocolate calla lilies.

I would only make one recommendation for future brides. The bottom tier was "Pink Champagne". The taste was incredible. However, if you plan to have this flavor, make sure that the cake is cut shortly after arrival....and hot weather is not a friend to this flavor.

It was basically a loss.....it was simply too warm in the room and the cake had been out too long. The other layers (poppyseed and white) held up fine. The Pink Champagne is simply too delicate to wait that long and get as warm as it did.

JaCiva's has an excellent reputation in Portland, Oregon. After planning my recent wedding, I understand why. Jaciva's offers not only cakes, but their professional advice. They have a knack for customer service and are flexible. My sales rep Tami was extremely professional and willing to work with my vision and last minute ideas. They have everything displayed in their showroom, they have their flavors available on hand for tastings, and their price lists are easy to read and understand. They offer delivery and set up to your venue (for a fee). This was one of our easiest and most favorite wedding planning experiences.

JaCivas also provided us with some custom made wedding cookies with thank you chocolates in a cute little bag as our favors. The cookies were out of this world as well as the choc.

My husband and I had an idea for a cake, but it was out of our budget. So we tried to simplify the design to get it into our price range -- and then the lady who was helping us asked us if we were only doing that to save money. We of course said yes, and then she told us to not no bother because she was going to make us our dream cake for our budget because we deserve to have our dream cake. It was so awesome!

We of course said yes, and then she told us to not no bother because she was going to make us our dream cake for our budget because we deserve to have our dream cake. It was so awesome! Read less

My Wife and I would like to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding beautiful, memorable, and delicious! We had interaction with almost every employee during the year run-up to our wedding and find it hard to express in words how wonderful every single person was. Our wedding cake and cookie wedding favors were delicious and beautiful, undeniable proof of why you are Portland's best bakery. Susan and I tip our hats and can't wait to come out again to say hello and sample everything in the shop!

This vendor was very gracious to book us one month before our wedding day. They also changed the color of the frosting to match the theme and adding extra decorations to make it stand out more. One other amazing thing they did was deliver our cake since we were only getting married five minutes from the bakery shop, even though they do not provide deliveries.

For years I have kept a picture of the wedding cake I dreamed of. Not only was JaCiva's able to reproduce it, but the flavor of the cake was incredible. We were shown books of the styles of cakes they have done in the past. We also were given samples of the different flavors. They have an enormous selection of flavors to choose from each one more delicious than the last. We not only chose the flavor of cake but the flavor of icing! JaCiva's is also a chocolatier, so if it can't be formed in icing it can be in chocolate. The staff was courteous, attentive and professional. The store was exceptionally clean.

Everyone at our wedding raved over the cake when they saw it. When they tasted it they couldn't get enough. We could have just served the cake it was that good!

We have since gone back on a Friday night to enjoy scrumptious desserts in their new back room. The room is set up with tables and chairs so you can sit and enjoy a full selection of tasty treats. Yummy yummy!!! You have to try the chocolate fondue, I'm still dreaming of it.

I loved my cake in the end, but they were having so many problems. The wedding coordinator left shortly after I had ordered my cake. They misplaced our credit card number for the deposit, They lost our order, and the day before my wedding called because they were not sure what I wanted.

I went to Jaciva's for my cake because I used to work there and knew how amazing their service is! It's a family owned business who works with you in every way possible to get the cake just the way you like. And the flavors are amazing! I recommend tasting the pink champagne. You can ask them to deliver and set up the cake for you. Also, as a bonus for returning the cake boards, you get a free 1st aniversary cake to look just like the real one, so there is no need to freeze the top tier!

We had a horrible experience at Helen Bernhart's bakery and called JaCiva's in a panic. They were so helpful and gave us exactly what we wanted. And, the cake was beautiful and tasty--often a rarity in the wedding world!

They are so awesome! My cake was beautiful! It tasted really great as well! We had no problems scheduling a time to go in for a tasting, and they worked really hard to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. The end result was a beautiful 4-tier masterpiece of 2 tiers each of lemon poppy seed cake w/ raspberry creme filling, & pink champagne cake w/ pink champagne filling. After my wedding I've gone back several times for various occasions- we like to get a special cake every year on our anniversary. They even give you your first anniversary cake free when you order your wedding cake there. They have a really great selection.

Our cake was several hours late for unknown reasons, but without even complaining they were nice enough to refund us most of the price of our wedding cake and grooms cake. The flavors were delicious, we had poppy seed with raspberry filliing and yellow cake with fudge filling. And the bonus is that you get a free first year anniversary cake so you don't have to freeze your wedding cake top for a year!
