I'm not sure you could ever go wrong going with the best cakes in town. Ashley was amazing to work with! She catered to our needs, answered every email I ever sent and was super sweet and patient! My bridesmaids had the leftover cake for breakfast...the guests ate cake all night. It was the perfect choice. I'd also say that for anyone who is worried Papa Haydn is pricey, I actually shopped around a lot and it was one of the best prices in town when you consider quality as well. Go for Papa Haydn!

I've always enjoyed Papa Haydn's desserts so I was happy to find out they did wedding cakes as well! They were by far the cheapest that we looked at but you would never know it by looking at the beautiful cakes they make. Best part is you get a free mini cake on your anniversary so you don't have to worry about freezing the top. Our cake was just as delicious on the wedding day as it was at the tasting and looked exactly like we asked.

I have never had a wedding cake that I thought was delicious ... until now. We chose a chocolate wedding cake with white chocolate mint mousse filling (4-tier) and chocolate ganache frosting with chocolate fondant designs. Moist, fabulous, and beautifully decorated. They have a new wedding cake baker/decorator, Ashley, who matches and possibly exceeds the previous one we had initially had a tasting with. Hands down the best of the 5 bakeries we tested.

I ordered both a bridal shower cake and wedding cake from here. The cake flavors are really good - not overly sweet the way a lot of cakes are, and their decorations are elegant and sophisticated. For being a higher-end dessert shop, their prices were also very reasonable, and on the lower end of many of the places we visited.

Because I'm a pastry chef, I had high expectations when it came to the wedding cake. Shortly after we got engaged, my husband and I came up with a list of five things that were non-negotiable. The wedding cake was part of that list. Rather than make the cake myself, I sought out Kristina at Papa Haydn because of her reputation, and because of the bakery's cake flavor offerings (they were compatible with Marc and mine's tastes). Kristina was gracious to create Papa Haydn's off-season spice cake with ginger mousse filling cake as one of our tiers! That made both of us really happy.

It took me awhile before I had a cohesive idea as to what I wanted the cake to look like. Designing it was probably the hardest part - though don't take that to mean it was difficult; it just wasn't as easy as picking out the flavors. I didn't want the cake design to be overwhelming for her, but I didn't want just a plain, white cake either. Our wedding wasn't traditional - we incorporated a lot of each other's personalities into the mix; - the cake design needed to match the feel of the event. Kristina was kind enough to write down everything that I thought up during our initial meeting, and then we worked out the finer details two weeks before the wedding. Having four months to think about the cake here or there was really valuable; and in the end, our wedding cake looked and tasted amazing!

Kristina did a beautiful cake for us. She was very knowledgeable during our tasting, and was able to take a photo of a cake I found online, make a few suggestions, and turn it into a far more elegant and beautiful design than I had even imagined.

The cake was also delicious - we were able to choose a different flavor/filling for each of the four layers, all of which were moist, light, and delicious. They also give you a free anniversary cake, so you don't have to freeze the top layer for a year.

I would recommend all the flavors, but especially the lemon chiffon (we filled ours with mango curd) and the triple chocolate (with raspberry cream cheese).

Perfection! I've wanted a Papa Haydn wedding cake for as long as I can remember and I was not disappointed! I gave them a sketch of what I wanted my hexagonal cake to look like and it came out beautifully! I could not have asked for more. What's more, I looked at several other bakeries in the area and found that Papa Haydn's prices were comparable, as their other bakeries would have charged extra for the decorations that I requested. I was delighted to find that Papa Haydn did charge for basic decorations, but rather included it in the initial per slice cost. Plus, it was delicious.

Our cake was perfect! It looked exactly like the photo we provided, and all the different cake layers were delicious!!! We made specific requests for the flavors and fillings for each tier and each one came out perfect! The only bummer is the steep delivery fee for venues outside Portland. Our delivery fee was more than half of the price of the cake itself! But we still wouldn't go with a cake from anywhere else because it was that good!

They worked with us not just on the food, but also on our entire setup to make sure we maximized our wedding experience. Don't think they are too spendy for your. Papa Haydn's provided a served meal with top notch passed hors d'oeuvres while maintaining our meager budget. If that wasn't enough, many guests told us that it was the best food they had ever eaten.

We had two different flavors of cake, both of which were delicious and everyone loved them both. Our cake was also really beautifully done and they worked directly with our florist to decorate it with fresh flowers, which was very nice. They have some AMAZING flavors of cake over at Papa Haydn and any one of them would've been a big hit, but I have to say, at our tasting the cakes that we tried had a terrific butter cream frosting that we were told would cover the cake but the cake that we had at our wedding definitely did not have that same high quality butter cream frosting on the outside, which was honestly a little disappointing. There was also a shift in baking personnel between the time that we booked them and when we went back to finalize details and the new staff seemed a little more brusk, but maybe we just caught them on a bad day. Nevertheless, the cake was beautiful and so delicious, and a relatively great value.

They made two cakes for us and one was pretty good and the other was spectacular. The spectacular one was a custom cake I designed. I also provided some decoration for the cake and they were very accomodating. They did an amazing job. As for the other one, I asked them to recreate a cake from a photograph and some of the colors were a little off but the cake still looked fine. Both cakes were delicious. I found the prices here very reasonable and competitive.

Working with Papa Hayden for the cake was probably the best decision for that option around. We met with them first, and did not really understand the process of picking a cake, which is a good thing. I know that they are not the cheapest, but the quality for the price is unbeatable. They really set the bar for us to even know what to ask. Dil was excellent to work with, they tailored the cake to exactly what we wanted - even requesting a different decoration than they had in the book they did not even bat an eye to our requests. It was PERFECT. We went there and then went 3 other places, and hands down there was no comparison. The delivery was smooth and easy and the cake was unbelievable.

We wanted a cake that tasted good but that also look good as well. Good thing Papa Haydn can do both. We were not going to go with them originally because for some reason we thought they would be out of our budget but they are very reasonable and they do free tastings (even though the tastings are really small bites). And you can't beat the tastes of their cakes, it just melts in your mouth. We still have guests telling us how good the cake was. And they will remake the top tier of the cake for your 1st anniversary so no need to keep the top tier in your freezer for a year.

Unbelievably amazing! We had hired to Papa Haydn to make our gluten-free wedding cakes and had no doubt that they would be amazing. Roughly six weeks before our wedding our original caterer informed us that they couldn't provide the gluten-free desserts we needed for our dessert reception (*gasp*). I contacted Kristina at Papa Haydn on the verge of hysterics and she rushed in like a superhero and made the most phenomenal desserts we could have asked for. The desserts were unbelievable (people are still talking about them), the wedding cakes were exquisite, and the price was less expensive than most caterers we looked into. You can't go wrong with Papa Haydn for cakes or catering!

We don't live in Portland. Everyone recommended Papa Haydn to us. We took a leap a faith and ordered the cake without having tasted it first. It all worked out well. The cake was beautiful and delicious. We had the lemon chiffon cake with passion fruit filling.

We chose Papa Haydn because it is our favourite dessert place. We go on Valentines Day and after every anniversary dinner. We're never let down.

Papa Haydn did a great job working with us. We changed the design of the cake a little late in the game and they had no problem accommodating the changes!

Our cake was perfect! The colours were spot on and the design was everything we had hoped for. It was so beautiful I didn't even want to eat it!

Ashley was so great to work with when we were in desperate need of a last minute wedding cake! A friend was originally going to do our cake and then the week of the wedding it looked as if that was not going to work out. I contacted Papa Haydn's and they created a gorgeous and tasty wedding cake. Worth every penny!

The cake was delivered on time, looked stunning, and was delicious! We ordered the chocolate ganache (super decadent), tirimisu and a light poppyseed raspberry. I was super impressed with the way they listened to what I wanted and delivered! Plus, they give you a free one year anniversary cake so you don't have to save the top of your cake... you just call in in a year, order what you want, and pick it up! I think that's a fantastic idea!!!

Papa Haydn did an amazing job on our cakes. We had a tiered Cassata cake, Chocolate Buttermilk and Lemon Chiffon side cakes and all were delicious as well as beautiful!! The consultation and cake testing with the baker was very helpful. The baker collected fresh ingredients (local marionberries) and flowers to create exactly what I wanted. It was a great experience and I highly recommend them.
