    Amazing carrot cake for our wedding!

    Fluffy Thoughts went above and beyond to make a delicious, beautiful, playful cake for our wedding! They were so creative with the design and were extremely easy to work with. We did a 4 tier cake with stenciling, a sugar flower cascade, and a fun topper (handmade from sugar- a bride and groom and baby bear). The sugar flowers were absolutely exquisite! They looked like real flowers and they matched our actual florals almost exactly. The flavor was carrot cake with buttercream frosting. People went nuts over it (pun intended)! Some of the best wedding cake I鈥檝e ever had. We just had to let people know there were nuts for those with allergies. We thought it was delicious and enjoyed all the leftover cake too! We highly recommend them!

    Absolutely perfect!

    I hired Fluffy Thoughts over 2 years ago when I was supposed to get married in March 2020. Obviously COVID shut that down and Fluffy Thoughts was super understanding and easy to work with on the rescheduled date. The cake came out absolutely gorgeous! I was so thrilled when I saw it!

    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!
