We go to JaCiva's for most of our cakes and chocolates so we didn't have to think hard about them as our wedding cake. We were so happy with the results. They also give you a free anniversary cake if you return the cake stand.

Our cake was so beautiful and so good. We opted for a non-traditional look (white frosting roses completely covering the cake) based on an internet photo I saw. Not only was the cake perfectly executed but the red velvet was delicious.

JaCiva's was amazing! The cake was great, we got nothing but compliments on it. The staff was friendly and available. We changed our wedding date twice and even the location once. They had no problem adjusting to our changing requests. They have been in business a long time and it isn't hard to see why.

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.
