I consider myself an excellent connoisseur of wedding cakes and have been searching for a cake baker that rivaled Polly Schoonmaker (Polly's Cakes) in terms of artistic quality and cake quality. Even though Polly no longer bakes cakes, thank goodness Laurie Clarke does! This lady has incredible talent and can make any visionary dream cake into a delicious reality! Laurie crafted the the wedding cake for my daughter's October wedding reception. She re-created design elements from my daughter's wedding dress, and wedding monogram into the decor of the wedding cake! Words cannot really do justice to the taste experience you will have when you first bite into her distinctive and divine cake flavors and filling either! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this incredible wedding cake artist!

Our cake packed a one-two punch: gorgeous and delicious! Laurie really worked with and listened to me when I shared with her our vision, useful artwork, etc. She is a very friendly and fun person to work with and she makes you feel special. We received a ton of compliments on our cake.
Laurie was willing to customize one of her cake flavor combinations for us. She is also one of the few who actually draws a rendition of your cake which almost exactly matched the final cake. Throughout the process, she was prompt with her responses, patient with my questions and ideas, and clearly wanted to make us a memorable cake.

I had planned my wedding in Portland from afar and Laurie Clarke Cakes was one of my vendors for the wedding cake. This was one of my vendors that I had minimal interaction with and had incredible results. All I had to do was send her a picture of what I wanted, confirm the number of guests, and pick out the flavors per tier.

After our ceremony, we walked into the reception area and there was the cake looking better than the picture I had sent. After the cake cutting when everyone finally dug in, we had people coming to us exclaiming their love for the cake and going in for seconds.

Laurie Clarke was very easy to work with. You request what you want and you get it. Plain and simple.

Laurie is an amazing artist. The cake she created was everything we dreamed it would be. The cake was flavorful, moist and delicious and everyone loved it. I wish we could have had more tiers so we could have had more of her amazing flavors.
More important to me then even the way it tasted was the way it looked and Laurie didn't disappoint there either. It was flawless and was exactly like her drawing. She 100% nailed the look and feel we were going for with our wedding. I have never seen a more beautiful, whimsical, joyous, fresh and unique wedding cake.
Laurie was also a joy to work with along the way. She is professional, prompt with correspondence and very creative. She listened to our ideas and our vision and improved upon them.
I truly can't recommend Laurie and her cakes enough. I always said that cake was the most important part of the wedding to me and Laurie made my wedding cake dreams come true. I actually cried tears of joy when I saw it. Thank you Laurie!

Laurie made us three beautiful jewel cakes for our wedding, and they tasted divine! Designing the three cakes was a joy, and Laurie provided great inspiration while still allowing my ideas to flourish. Laurie was especially helpful in finalizing the design, as I was planning from out-of-state.
The day of the wedding she arrived in plenty of time to set the cakes up, and even brought two options for me to choose from on a final detail of one of the cakes. We had one traditionally styled cake, one in the shape of two poker chips, and one that was a mini-model of our house under reconstruction. Laurie put amazing detail into the house cake, down to a roll of "insulation" in the wall and on the floor (cotton candy was the insulation). She crafted stud walls, drywall (complete with screws and plaster lines) and electrical boxes with electrical wire in the walls. She is a true artist and gets excited when designing a fun new project.
Her prices were very reasonable, especially when compared to bakers in the Portland area with comparable skill. Her cake tasted wonderful, and she created custom flavors for us with no problem.
I wish I lived closer to her so I could purchase cakes for future celebrations from her...but perhaps I'll just buy a big cooler and drive them home - she's worth it!
