I’ve forgotten to post about it this year, but we’re taking appointments for tastings for 2012 weddings. Tastings are free for weddings of more than 45 guests. We do tastings for gluten free too! We got to do some gorgeous and fun weddings last year and are looking forward to another fun summer of weddings. Call 503-477-5916.
What a great year it’s been so far! I think we can hesitantly say that we are coming out of last year’s horrible slump, and things are looking up. We been working on expanding our offerings a bit, and that should be really obvious in our pastry case this summer, with lots of new items, and the return of some old ones. We can also announce the return of iced tea, and iced toddy coffee!
Most excitingly, we’re now offering more options for special order cakes. We are adding a line of erotic cakes, which we’ve actually been making for quite awhile, we just haven’t really advertised it. There will be more info on our Bakery Selections page very soon! Now even your bachelor and bachelorette parties can be vegan (and even gluten free)! (I want to post a picture of one SO BAD, but I’ll let you just head over to our Flickr photos to see them instead.)
We are also expanding our decorating options for all special order cakes, so your birthday, anniversary, bar mitzvah, or arbor day cakes can be like one of those fancy cakes you see on the TV. Well, to some extent anyway. We are now offering stacked cakes and fondant decoration options! Please call us with your ordering and pricing questions, because of the added time it takes to make fancier cakes, we are handling each one individually as far as pricing and design is concerned.
We have lots of great new pictures on our Flickr page, of recent cakes as well as the start of our wedding season. Please take a look! We still have some summer wedding dates open, so call to set up a free tasting as well.
Our last wedding of 2010 was merely a week ago, and here we are, jumping in to weddings of 2011. June and July are already filling up, so call soon and book a free tasting. I’ve updated our wedding page with all of the current info.
We still deliver within Portland for free, and to all McMenamins locations.
We definitely accommodate food allergies, just let us know when you call. Gluten free, soy free, and nut free are all available options.
It seems like last year couples were a little timid about getting married. Fears about the economy perhaps? Less love and excitement about saying I do after you’ve just lost your job? Well, NOT THIS YEAR! Wedding season is in full swing, and for the first time ever, we are completely booked through September. That means I don’t have a Saturday off for 4 months, and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I’ve met some wonderful couples, some demanding mother-in-laws, and this year more than ever lots of non-vegans who are just excited about our cake. And I’m kidding about that mother-in-law thing, you’re all laid back and wonderful.
We started off the season right, with a cake in my favorite colors. Turquoise? Orange? Yes!
Yellow bird, up high in banana tree... Anyone? Anyone?
This one was an adorable DIY wedding that I wish I could have stayed for! Sometimes the flowers really make it all come together.
And a groom’s cake for the man who loves basketball! This one was at McMenamins, and I have to say they know how to handle weddings. They take care of everything.
If your wedding is after September of this year, call to set up a tasting soon, and for those of you thinking about next year, we start booking out in January, so pick a date, and call early!
