Closing shop

We served the greater Portland area since October 2006. Sadly, due to health reasons, we have decided to discontinue our business. We will miss interacting with the community and participating in the special events of your lives. There are many qualified bakers who have arrived in the Portland area since we opened shop. They should be a great resource to you. One in particular is Artisan Cake Company whose business model most closely mirrors that of Karren's Specialty Cakes. Once again, thank you for all the business and loyalty!

In celebration, his daughters ordered him a cake in the shape of his camera. Here is Karren's interpretation of his camera strapped down for display.

Happy birthday Rodney!

Girls' Camp

Karren attended a Girls' Camp in Washington for an afternoon to teach garde-manger to some teenagers. They learned quickly as you can see from the photos. Karren only did the small melon in the first photo as a demo. The rest was all them.
