    Fluffy thoughts listened to our vision and created the most beautiful cake. We had the Lemon Curd and Vanilla/Vanilla and both flavors were incredible. Many compliments from our guests!

    Beautiful and delicious cakes!

    My hotel had a contract with Fluffy Thoughts Cakes. When I reached out through email, the owner, Lara personally responded. We live in another state and were able to have the cake samples picked up from my family member. We had direct conversations with her and she was able to provide different sketches that included each special request. She's even giving us a one year anniversary gift. The cake is exactly what I wanted. I had two flavors and a three tier cake for 90 people. It was absolutely delicious- per all of my guests! I definitely recommend them 100%! Lara is fantastic and incredibly talented; I wish her the best.

    Custom cakes were impressive

    We hired Fluffy Thoughts to do two cakes for our daughter's wedding. The custom wedding cake included a beautiful stencil that matched the design on the invitations. The custom groom's cake was spectacular. Our daughter wanted the cake to be in the shape of a wave with a wind surf board to be an exact match to her new husband's favorite board. The cake was a work of art. It was simply breathtaking and all of the wind surfer groomsmen were impressed!
