I wish I could mail out samples and photos of my cake, that's how impressive it was! So hard to find the words to describe this dream wedding cake. Lara did an amazing job of capturing our royalty theme. During the tasting when she did the first sketch I was immediately excited. We had a 4 tier cake with 3 different flavors, our guests were so amazed. It tasted amazing. Not to mention, they were able to eat with their eyes first! The cake had gold moldings all around it, and a detailed crown at the top. It was so elegant we just couldn't eat it. We decided to freeze the crown and save for a special occasion. I am more than happy with the serviceSent on 05/16/2017

Best cake ever!
Thank you so much! This was the best cake we and our guests had ever seen - DELICIOUS AND GORGEOUS! We wanted something a little different and did Fluffy thoughts deliver! People were circling it for hours before the cake cutting wondering if it was real and then devoured every slice! The staff was also amazing and Laura was super kind and responsive to us! She prepared some gluten free cupcakes for our guests with a gluten allergy and an amazing bday cake for a guest as well. We could not be happier!!Sent on 05/20/2019

Delicious and beautiful!
We used Fluffy Thoughts for our wedding of 240 in DC and it was so yummy! Laura was so great at our tasting and drew a sketch of what we wanted. We chose a cake for 150 and cupcakes for 100. We got to choose a variety of flavors and everything was delicious! I would highly recommend them!Sent on 05/16/2019
