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 service

AMAZING!!! We had a bad experience with the first cake vendor we worked with and glad that fate led us to fluffy thoughts instead. Their quality is superb both in taste and appearance! They accommodated all of the different flavors we wanted and the apple orchard cake was to die for!! So many guests said it was the best cake they had ever tasted. Not to mention the cake actually looked like a piece of artwork it was beautiful. Phenomenal job I would recommend fluffy thoughts a million times to anyone!!

Dat Cookie Dough!
Amazing cake flavors and built a beautiful cake. The tasting is great because you can sample flavors other than vanilla- like "dat cookie dough" which was obviously a huge hit! We didn't have any sort of vision, so they were able to work with us to come up with a really cool idea- bottom tier was a wine barrel which went well with our venue (District Winery) and then the top tiers were left white to decorate with live flowers the day of. Sadly, we ran out time the day of to provide the flowers- but it didn't take anything away from the beauty of the cake they made- it looked fabulous, flowers or not!
Highly recommend :)
