Marilyn saved the day.....last night around 8 pm I googled cake decorators and found several in the vicinity of my work - I started sending emails to see who could make me a special birthday cake for my boss's 65th birthday - today by 2:00 pm. The emails started coming back immediately, all but 1 said they needed 3 - 4 days notice. Except Marilyn. Her response was YES YES YES I can do it. And she did. I wanted a pretty special cake - with a Grateful Dead Theme. She did not hesitate and I have to say it was the best tasting cake I have ever had - and the design work was over the top. I will continue to use her and her crew at Piece of Cake Bakery. Unbelievable service. Which I find is very hard to get these days. Thank You.

I ordered a cake for my sister's bachelorette party and worked with Marilyn to make sure the cake accommodated my sister's gluten and soy allergies. The night of the party we ran out of time to pick up the cake due to traffic and we decided we would just have to leave the cake until the next day. Marilyn arranged for a delivery for an extra fee, but it was very well worth it that we could have the cake for the night of the party and it was kind of Marilyn to care so much and make sure that the cake made it to us in time. It was a big hit for the bride--and it was delicious!

Gluten free chocolate raspberry cake with frosting - yum! We've gotten two cakes here and they are so good. We look forward to this cake for weeks. And great hours too!

I went to Piece of Cake bakery in Sellwood for the first time tonight and was blown away by the wonderful customer service and delicious cake. I had the Chantilly and will definitely go back to try another of their yummy looking selections the next time my sweet tooth strikes. The owner gave me a glow in the dark ring and was incredibly warm and inviting. They have a fun & eccentric style that includes a statue of ET by the check out counter. This place is great!!! You should definitely check it out and tell your friends!

We will NOT be buying our wedding cake from Piece of Cake Bakery. I was pretty appalled by their customer service. We arrived 15 minutes early for our 5pm consultation and tasting. A young woman behind the counter greeted us and politely informed us that the owner was in the back with another couple. She offered us to begin sampling or to have a drink of coffee or tea, to which we declined, wanting to wait for the consultation. We were happy to wait, given our early arrival. However, we wound up waiting 45 minutes, that's 30 minutes after our scheduled appointment time. At one point, about 25 minutes after our scheduled appointment, the young woman who greeted us pointed us out to the owner. She, and another employee made a big show about how they "didn't notice" us. They then asked us at least 3 separate times if we wanted coffee or tea, and seemed somewhat offended that we politely declined. The owner then told the second employee to get us set up tasting while she continued to work with the other couple. So, we stood up and walked into what is apparently their tasting room, but was a messy room with antique (i.e. falling apart) tables covered in deteriorating holiday decorations. The second employee followed us into the "tasting room" and then turned towards two women who were seated and already eating. She quickly realized they were not us, though we were standing right next to her. While we stood there, she asked us what cakes we would like to try. We informed her "everything without nuts or coconut," as I have allergies to these. She then asked another time "are you sure you don't want tea or coffee?" When we declined, she turned to walk away. I stopped her, and asked if we should sit at the large table covered with tool and art supplies, or at the dilapidated couch and broken apart coffee table. She implied we could sit "wherever." So, we sat at the couch, and waited another 5-10 minutes, listening to the owner continue to work with the other couple and making no acknowledgement for our presence. The second employee returned with a plate of cakes, and begins to announce what they are, pointing first to an almond cake with apparently no memory of my allergy. My fiance and I then eat our cakes in silence with no one to describe their services, prices, or how to arrange for pick up and drop off. We actually finished the entire plate of cakes before the owner finished up with the other couple. She then let us know she would be with us in a moment, and went to tend to other business before sitting down at a table with us. She wrote our information down on a white piece of paper with a sharpie. I showed her a picture of what I wanted (a cake that looks like a tree), and she got excited and went to get her own phone to show me pictures of something similar. She then showed me a picture of a yellow frosting cake with a cat on it. I tried to be polite, but I guess my flummoxed expression was fairly obvious, because she got rather offended and insisted she was just trying to show me a picture of how they can do cupcake tiers (though the picture was a sheet cake surrounded by cupcakes not on tiers). After talking about prices and how to cut costs, she was about to excuse us, and seemed bothered by me stating we had more flavors we would like to try. Then it took her another 5-10 minutes to gather the flavors I had requested. She brought them to us, and left us alone while we ate. When she returned she arrogantly announced "I knew you'd love them!" and then gave us one word answers when we asked if we could replace a chocolate filling with peanut butter on one of the cake. When we were all said and done, she pretty much rushed us out the door. The cakes were edible. Nothing too special, but definitely not worth all the fuss. We'll be going somewhere else.

Quirky and totally authentic Portlandia at its finest. A gem in Sellwood offers up quality cakes, cupcakes and desserts (vegan and non). They have an interesting decor made up of stuff you would find in your grandparent's house and garage sales, which is totally a great vibe for this bakery that embraces its uniqueness. Sit in the "living room" on the couch, sip some coffee and enjoy your delectable dessert. A pure Portland experience. I once went in with a friend close to their closing time and they were quick to make sure that we did not feel rushed to stuff our faces and leave- the owner was fantastic!

This a delightful small place. It is tight quarters as you first get in....but the cramped waiting is WELL worth the eateries they have! I couldn't decide and left there with 3 cupcakes! All were well above my expectations!

The cake is amazing. Probably the best vegan & gluten free cakes around. The regular cakes are also amazing. They are very talented with their designs as well. The owner is a bit nutty, but she loves what she does, and is delightful to deal with. The wedding cakes run about $5-6 per person, so it's kinda spendy, but the cake is so amazing, that if you can afford it, it's worth it. One random tip, they have the cheapest wedding invites in town. It's some sort of side business. The invites aren't necessarily the most modern, but they're pretty decent, and amazingly cheap.
