Cake Nouveau Asian-Pacific fusion bakery located in Portland creates modern, unique desserts.

Launched in 2018, this female-founded bakery is led by Portland native Helen Nguyen and Hawaii native Makana JarmanEach with degree in baking & pastry, both women have held various positions in many bakeries throughout Portland. After working together for four years and bonding over their love of Asian and Hawaiian pastries Cake Nouveau was born.
