Looking for a Princess Cake in the Portland area

I love, love, love the traditional Princess Cake/Princess Torte - it's a white layer cake with some raspberry filling, layered with pastry cream, whipped cream domed on top and covered with tinted marzipan.

Do you know of any bakery in the Portland area (or baker) who makes this cake? I tried making one myself but it didn't turn out so well )-: I'm in Beaverton but will travel for Princess Cake....

    This thread is a couple of years old, but I just knew I had heard about such a thing before!

      Thank you for finding that thread for me. I've emaled the bakery mentioned in the thread to see if they still make a Princess Cake since it's no longer on their menu. I might just have to try it again myself - maybe more practice on making genoise would be in order first!
