We ordered 3 separate cakes, only 1 was correct when we cut them. We were very disappointed. The cake we tasted and ordered was delicious. The cakes we received were very ordinary. The one cake that was correct was delicious. We had friends pick up the cakes as the venue was only about 1 mile from the bakery, and when they arrived to pick up the cakes, they were ot even boxed up. The person in the bakery wanted to give them the cakes uncovered on a bakery tray only. They insisted the cakes be boxed and they did it.

our cake was incredible--the look AND taste of it. We had a fall wedding so chose these four flavors: hazelnut, pumpkin, carrot and Tollhouse chocolate chip. The company arrived right on time and put flowers on the cake (the florist left them flowers and sheers to arrange them). everyone loved it.

Their cake was soooooo moist and tasted amazing! We went to the Lamb's in Garden Home, part of Portland, but I'm sure they all do the same amazing job!

I checked a few bakers online but most of my recommendations came from friends and a majority of them all suggested Lamb's Thriftway Bakery in Wilsonville. I made an appointment for a tasting and OMG I was in heaven. The cake was fluffy and the filling was smooth and creamy but not too sweet. Between my bridesmaid and I we ate over a half dozen cupcake size pieces in various flavors and I spent the next 9 months dreaming about my favorite, Chocolate with mint buttercream filling. Hum!!! They were also on time with the delivery and setup and very reasonably priced.

Just to clarify, I went to the Thriftway on Garden Home (SW), not in Wilsonville.
Delicious cake and cupcakes for less that $250 (although the cake I chose was small and not super fancy, and we ordered 5 dozen cupcakes). The red velvet cake is unbelievable. Try it.
In hindsight, I might have just purchased a series of individual 10" cakes... At about $20 apiece — versus the $150 for a stacked 6" and 10" cake — it would have saved me a lot of money and cake is cake... Stacking didn't necessarily make a huge difference for me personally...

Would have been nice if they didn't charge for delivery, but otherwise they were awesome.

There are a lot of good bakery's my sister used Lambs for her wedding and they did a phenomenal job. Our cake was gorgeous, just what we asked for tastier than competitors, and a price you can't beat! You wouldn't think a store would have an award winning bakery, but they do. Forget the pos, over oriced bakeries! Use lambs today for your cake!

We were so happy with our beautiful cake! We did not expect for much of it to be eaten (we've been to other weddings that had TONS of leftover cake) but people DEVOURED the entire thing!!! We literally had 3 pieces left from a 3 tier cake. It was beautiful and delicious.

Lamb's Thriftway was a wonderful vendor to use for our wedding cake. The cake tasting was wonderful, we were able to taste 6 different combinations. The cake itself is delicious! The staff was able to capture our vision for the cake design. Delivery was done without any problems. The prices were also very reasonable. Our guests loved the cake!

I dont look at this place as a bakery in a store...I look at it as a wonderful bakery that happens to have a store around it. Their cakes are delish, moist and beautiful. They have many flavors and ways to decorate. They made our cake dream come true for our wedding and also gave us tips on how to save some $! I would highly reccomend this bakery for weddings, birthdays, showers, or even just for those who have a sweet tooth!

Lamb's baked and delivered the cake for my wedding. Not only was the cake delicious, but they were exactly on time with the delivery (which is huge when there is so much going on the day of the wedding). Since day one I knew I was going to have Lamb's bake my wedding cake because of all the positive recommendations from friends and family, so we decided for the engagement party to order a cake a "test" it out. Since then, between my fiance's family and my own we have ordered numerous Lamb's cakes, and will continue to order through Lamb's for any occasion. There cake is consistently delicious, and their service is great! I would highly recommend Lamb's bakery to anyone in need of one; everyone I've talked to that had cake at the wedding has raved about it!

The best buttercream frosting! It's so light and fluffy! And the cake/filling is delicious and moist! We went with a chocolate cake/mocha filling for the top, chocolate cake/raspberry filling for the middle, and a white cake/marionberry filling for the bottom. And the fruit filling is seedless - definite plus! They also provide a free anniversary cake, with the same design and whatever cake/filling you want, for your one year anniversary. You just call them ahead and tell them and they will make it fresh for you - no freezer burnt cake! :-)

We selected Lamb's Thriftway for the cake and flowers and we were blown away by both. We were very picky about out cake since both me and my husband are very much into desserts. When looking at vendors we have a specific flavor request and Lamb's was able to nail the Chocolate Peanut Butter layer we had been craving. The Banana and Tollhouse layers were also very tasty and everyone at the reception loved the variety we had since everyone was able to pick something that appealed to them. This was a very highly rated cake in the eyes of our guests just on taste and we have to agree based on what we were able to enjoy.
As for decorations, they did a wonderful job. The cake was beautiful when they brought it into our reception space and when we saw it with the flowers (from their floral department) it became stunning. It was the cake we had been hoping for when we first started going around to vendors and describing what we wanted. They did a fantastic job and we are so glad that they were able to bake us a cake!

I have been to so many weddings were the cake is beautiful, but gross tasting. Not with Lamb's! Not only was our cake spectacular, but it was also the most amazing cake we have ever tasted! Our guests still rave about how wonderful it was. It was my husband's favorite part of our wedding!

The last few weddings we've been to have all had cakes provided by Lamb's Thriftway, and they were divine. The flavors, fillings, and textures were delicious. Our own wedding cake was no exception. We ordered a three-layer cake with buttercream frosting and a simple scroll work design. They layers were comprised of carrot cake with cream cheese filling, poppy seed with raspberry filling, and chocolate with chocolate ganache filling. It was so light and fluffy, with mellow, creamy frosting. I was very pleased with how lovely it looked and how well it was displayed. If you're working within a budget, Thriftway is your best bet. Reasonably priced, but tastes like a million bucks.

Although I was initially skeptical about having my cake made in a grocery store bakery, I set up a tasting at Lamb's Thriftway in Wilsonville at the recommendation of a couple of friends who had each served cakes from the bakery at their own weddings. At the time that I set up the appointment, my husband and I got to choose 6 different cakes and 6 different fillings to try. We took three friends with us and were delighted by all of the delicious options that were presented to us. After much careful deliberation we decided on one layer of orange cake with raspberry filling which was perfect for our brunch reception, and one layer of chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling that was to die for.
Not only was the cake delicious, it was beautiful too! When I went in for the tasting I took in a copy of our wedding invitation and the baker managed to copy the design for the cake. It was absolutely perfect!

This bakery was part of a package plan that we took out through our wedding/reception site. They were easy to work with, and even allowed us to add a sheet cake for some humorous figurines we wanted to place on it. We chose square tiers with purple, lavender and ivory. We only wanted some simple scrollwork on the cake. Our flavors were carrot, banana, and poppy seed. The cake was beautiful and was just what we asked for! The cake was moist and very tasty and the fillings were yummy. We will get another cake on our 1 year anniversary.

Brides... don't make the mistake of paying too much for your wedding cake! I know it sounds crazy... because we don't often think "great wedding cake" when we think of Thirftway, but I PROMISE you they do great work and the cake is even better. (we're still eating ours 3 weeks later, no joke.) They had a wonderful variety of frosting, designs (even custom - which we did), cake flavors, filling...etc. This is a great way of cutting your cake budget in half and still getting great cake with amazing taste!

We had to make several changes after the initial order and they made them with no hassle. The delivered the cake in the small window allowed. And we got so many compliments on how good it tasted!!!
