Simply Beautiful Cakes in Newberg

A three layer cake sitting on top of a table.

Maryann Potter, owner of Simply Beautiful Cakes, grew up in a country town in the Pacific Northwest in Oregon. As early as high school age, she developed a deep desire to bake and decorate cakes. Taking beginning cake lessons soon turned into a lifelong passion for her. She began baking cakes and decorating them for friends, family, and eventually for her own children.

Maryann moved to Newberg, Oregon, in 1997 with her husband and children and calls it her home. She quickly spread the word to friends and family that she creates cakes from her home, and orders started flowing in, a trend that continues to this day. Over the years, she has consistently taken classes to learn new techniques and refine those she already knows. This journey has been ongoing for 40 years.

Maryann meticulously crafts her own sugar flowers for her cakes, creating each one by hand with special attention to detail. She takes pride in showcasing her artistry and talent by personalizing each cake to tell “your” story. By handcrafting the intricate pieces that adorn the cake, she brings your unique story to life, making it truly yours.

She uses her passion and skills and techniques to bring any cake to life and feels every cake is to be celebrated and embraced and seen as tradition. Because of this she has a saying “Live, Laugh and eat cake”. It only propels her to help the customer with their vision and to make their cake a one of a kind cake from simply simple to simply beautiful.

We at Simply Beautiful Cakes are excited to meet our next new clients treating each one very special as well as welcoming back our existing clients.
