I got married near the end of June 08, and was in need of a cake. I did some shopping around, and asked around at the various vendors we were using, and Holiday Essence kept coming up. I scheduled a tasting, and due to childcare issues, my fiance and I showed up with my four year old. Not only did Brad not mind, he made my son dinner while we all tasted the wonderful arrangement of cake, frosting, and filling. It was a blast, and it was hard to get my son to eat the dinner and not just the cake. :)

They were very understanding of some scheduling issues, (health related) and were always courteous, kind, and did everything they could to make our cake exactly what we wanted. The only complaint I have is that my wife and I were so busy after the ceremony, that we only got one small slice of the heavenly creation before it was gone...

The cake is european in design, and has multiple layers of cake and filling (and they can mix and match). My favorite was a tangerine and lemon cake, each layer separated by a lemon curd or lemon creme filling. You cut this open and it was oranges and yellows in stripes and delicious!

But then there is the free anniversary cake to look forward to next year and it is all ours!

Thank you guys! Hope I can send more business your way.

I just went to Holiday Essence and put in an order for my 18th birthday cake, and it went so, so well. It was a little difficult to find the place, but after we did everything went swimmingly. I had found Holiday Essence because I knew I wanted a Red Velvet cake specifically, and they were the only shop I could find who did them. I had made a sketch of the cake I wanted, and already worked out most of the details with the help of their website, holidayessencedotcom. They were really helpful and understanding, and the price was very reasonable, and they even gave us a sample of their red velvet! It was thick and springy, moist and delicious. Flavorful, but not too rich, and a marvelous deep red in color. I can't wait to get my cake on Saturday, and I will post again with the results!

Also- I had Beaverton Bakery do my last big cake, and I was sorely disappointed. The colors were mixed unevenly, the cake was dry. the only thing good was the filling. Just a comparison.

Pros: Friendly, great vibes, even better quality.

Cons: Difficult location.

I ordered cupcakes for my daughter's birthday. They were delicious and affordable. They were able to make exactly what I wanted (pound cake with strawberry frosting). Everyone at the party loved them and asked where I got them!

I ordered and paid for my cupcakes several months in advance and I had a wonderful experience tasting and ordering the cupcakes for my wedding. HOWEVER, at least a week and a half before my wedding day, I called to confirm arrangements with ALL my vendors. Holiday Essence was the only vendor who did not call back!! I must've called Holiday Essence 4 times! I had questions to ask them from my caterer and also from my florist, however, they did not return any of my calls! It was extremely frustrating. I left many messages explaining the reason for my calls and asked for a prompt call back. I was worried my cupcakes were not going to show up on Wedding Day! Anyways, they did show up...thank goodness! But they were not as tasty as I remembered during the tasting. I am so disappointed on how unprofessional they were after they knew they had received my business. Terribly disappointed...

I ordered my wedding cake from here, the cake itself was very delicious and the staff I encountered during my tasting and ordering were outstanding.
We purchased a cake topper from them, when my wedding cake was delivered they put the topper on and it caved in the top layer of my wedding cake. You would think they would have told us the topper was too heavy for that type of cake. The follow up customer service was awful, we did finally get a partial refund, however all my pictures of my cake were not cute and the bad customer service when something went wrong left a bad taste in my mouth.

I am in love with this bakery. I had an emergency and needed to stop and get a cake for a party I was going to. I decided to try this place out because it was on my way and boy am I happy I did. They were so nice and helpful. I had a ton of questions and they were patient with me and answered all my questions. The cake they suggested was soooo good. The price was also very reasonable. I got my cake and left. I had alot of compliments on the cake and would definately recommend this place to everyone.

This conviently located bakery is one that I strongly suggest! When you feel like treating yourself you must try a slice of their unforgettable, poppy seed cake with berry filling. Not to many bakeries offer single slices of their masterpiece cakes but this fine bakery does. I have used them when I need a cake that day right now for an unexpected occasion and always been satisfied.

Support this bakery! Best cakes in Portland, especially their Kahlua and Cream filled. Extremely nice staff and great service. We used Holiday Essence for our wedding reception cupcakes, and every other time we've needed something very special.
