Laura was super flexible and very sweet. She was amazing when she was helping us decide what we wanted and the delivery and set up was very smooth. She provides a large variety of flavors and she is so affordable, the cupcakes were a hit! Thank you Laura, for accommodating to our needs so close to the wedding. After this wonderful experience, I wouldn't go through anybody else!


Laura did an amazing job. I even asked her to add a few things near the end and she helped me more it out. The cake was so pretty and the flavors were amazing. I couldn't have picked a better person to make the cake


We are so glad we chose Laura to make our wedding cake! She was so easy to work with....responsive, knowledgeable and so pleasant. She created exactly what we envisioned and the cake was delicious. Our guests raved!! If you’re looking for an affordable talented cake decorator I recommend Cakes by Laura. You won’t be disappointed!

Laura worked with me to create my daughter's perfect Bachelorette party cake. It was perfect, reasonable in price and very yummy. Thank you Cakes by Laura.

Laura made us the most beautiful cake for our wedding reception back in September at the Oregon Gardens and we had a wonderful experience! First of all, we contacted Laura about 2 months out from our date (in a bit of a panic after calling several other vendors who were already booked) and fortunately, she was available for our date and was able to squeeze us in for tasting with VERY short notice. We met her for a tasting a few weeks before the wedding where she provided us with several samples. We showed her a few pictures from Pinterest and the colors we were using for our floral design and with that, she was able to draw up a couple of designs for us to choose from. After making our selections, Laura kept in touch all the way up until the day of our reception making sure everything was on track and updating us on next steps. Furthermore, we called Laura on the week of our wedding, after seeing the forecast for 100 degree weather for our outdoor venue, to see if she had any ideas on how to keep our cake from melting, and she was able to change our delivery time so that the cake would arrive just after the sun went down. We were so happy with how everything turned out and also received many compliments from our guests on her delicious lemon filling! Thank you Laura for our AMAZING cake and a world-class experience!

Cakes By Laura was such a good decision for our wedding. She was so personable and really took the time to listen to what we were looking for. Furthermore, she gave us exactly what we wanted! Everything turned out perfect and I would 10/10 recommend her!

Laura did an amazing job with our wedding cake and desserts. She was very professional, fun, and creative in helping me plan exactly what I wanted. I feel like I told her what I had in mind and she turned it into art! She was easy to work with and she knows baking! All my guests absolutely loved our wedding cake. We got a lot of compliments about how good the cake tasted and that the texture was just right. That made me happy. I highly recommend her services if you're looking for perfection.

I can’t begin to say how much Laura helped me out. She made me the most beautiful water lily to top my cake and even color matched it so well with my color scheme. She recommended another bakery to do the cake since the wedding was out of state but I wouldn’t let them touch the decoration. I appreciate it so much and will always refer local brides to her.

"Laura is more than a cake decorator and will help you make your dreams come true. I first met Laura back in 2016 at a Wedding Show in Salem, Oregon. There were several other cake decorators at the event as well, but as soon I met her and tasted her cake I knew she was the one I wanted to design my cake. Laura completed by wedding cake for my Wedding that took place on May 13th 2017. She did an excellent job that surpassed even my imagination. My fiance and I just love Laura and the masterpiece she created for us. And it even tasted amazing!!! My guests talked about her amazing cupcakes even after the wedding. If your looking for someone to share in your amazing journey, to help you express your uniqueness, book her as your cake decorator!!!! She is the one you want! You can't go wrong. I plan on going through her for any future needs for cake and cupcakes. Kelly & Mike Kearns The Historic Gentle House "

"Laura is AMAZING!!! She stepped in when my original decorator moved out of state and didn't tell me... less than 2 months before my wedding. She listened to every detail I wanted. And I'm telling you when i saw my cake on my wedding day for the first time... I started crying....it was absolutely breathtaking!! Laura gave me the wedding cake I have always dreampt of. All my guest were just in awww. And she did all the custom cake flavors that i wanted and even used a frosting recipe that i gave her. The cake was delicious and everyone loved it. Ty Laura for rescuing my wedding and helping my dream come true. I have recommend her to all our friends and next time i need a cake Ill be calling her again!!!" The Elks Lodge ~Keizer, Oregon

"Laura was a blessing for us as well as our first cupcake baker had to back out at the last minute because of a family tragedy. My daughter found Laura and the cupcakes and cake for the bride and groom were beautiful. My daughter and her husband were very pleased."

"My dream baby shower cake. I sent her a pic, gave her my colors, requested my favorite cake (hummingbird)....and she made it better than I could have ever hoped for!" Salem, Oregon

Aimee Shaw
"Laura was a blessing to find. Last minute, I needed to hire a professional to make my cake for the wedding with the special request of it being entirely gluten-free. Laura took on the challenge testing recipes to find the right ones. The recipes were delicious - I requested chocolate and orange and was so happy with the flavor and texture. The icing was also delicious, which always seems to be a challenge to get the look as well as the flavor right and she succeeded! Most importantly, she took the compilation of picture ideas I had for the design and executed it even more beautifully that I, myself had envisioned.??"
