Best Cake & Sweets Artists

Dream Cakes pdx

Dream Cakes has been one of Portland’s most celebrated custom wedding cake companies since 1994. Back then, the small bakery was owned & operated solely by Judy Reese for 20 years, she retired in 2014. Judy’s replacement, Johannah, trained for over a year, learning every recipe and technique Judy had to offer. Both Judy and Johannah envisioned that Dream Cakes would serve the local Portland area for many generations and weddings to come.  

Sewell Sweets

Cat, owner of Sewell Sweets, is another true cake artist!  She specializes in hand painting cakes, and making true masterpieces!  But, they also taste great!   She offers a variety of scratch baked, gourmet flavors.

The Pastry Smith

Monica, owner of The Pastry Smith, loves to recreate your favorite childhood treats by putting an elevated spin on them!  For instance, the cake pictured has homemade marionberry pop-tarts tucked in with the flowers!  She specializes in desserts like toaster strudels and fun flavors like peanut butter and jelly.  All very pretty, and delicious to boot!

Bee's Cakes

Bee creates cakes with playful decorations and a focus on bold flavor combinations.  She loves to mix the expected with the unexpected for a truly unique look and taste.  

Tres Belle Desserts

You haven't seen a true dessert bar, until you've seen a dessert bar by Tres Belle Desserts.  Michelle, the owner, has impeccable attention to detail, and every single cake, cookie, and sweet treat is as perfect and pretty as it is tasty!  

Best Caterers

Signature Affair Catering

If you're looking for catering that is just as pretty as it is tasty, then this is the caterer for you!  The owner, Mimi, is extremely detail oriented and very visual, so you can be sure the food will not only look like works of art but taste fresh and delicious!  Did you know that one way to make your bowls of fruit look like a real-life still-life painting is to spritz them with olive oil?  I didn't either, until I met Mimi!
