There really isn't much to say here about this cakery… but, I can tell you it's just perfect! On this corner of SW 14th and Yamhill, we found this place called Palace Cakes. It was on my list a while ago and for some reason I took it off but recalled it today when we were out running errands. So, short story here… we went in and ate some cake!
Pictures can sell you on this place because it was really sweet and photographed so well. The cakes were moist, the frosting was rich and perfectly sweetened and not overly done. Decorated simply too, this cakery is divine. Not a whole lot of seating but you don't really need much as you can easily take away a box of cake tied with red and white string and then devour it once you get it home.
So, on a rainy in Portland when you find yourself spent on running errands around town, take time for a slice and a coffee. Upon leaving, I spied a new cake just set out. It was a carrot cake, several layers tall with toasted coconut slapped on the sides on top of the frosting. I think I will be back at Palace Cakes soon!
