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.

My Mom and I were able to try all of the cakes ahead of time. They created the most beautiful cake for my husband and I, and all I did was bring them a photograph of one of their cakes I loved from a bridal show. It tasted great too! Fabulous!! I would hire them again in an instant!

Our cake was AMAZING and truely the most beautiful cake I've seen. We had a different flavor for each of our 4 tiers... Each flavor was incredible. All our guests loved it. 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. Everyone keeps commenting on them.

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!

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.
