Fluffy Thoughts did the cake (actually, a lovely vegan cupcake tower!) for our recent wedding and I would strongly recommend them! The flavors were amazing and they provided a lovely tower structure with topper cake and six different flavor vegan cupcakes. The frostings in particular were so rich and natural in flavor - none of that artificial overly-sweet business. We had them deliver and set up the tower on-site for a reasonable fee and it was totally worth it. I only wish I still had more of the cupcakes to eat myself :)

We went to four cake tastings and Fluffy Thoughts had the best tasting cake by far! We found they had a great selection of flavors and the "deconstructed" cake tasting was one of the highlights of wedding planning! They were very responsive to emails and extremely helpful in providing information on the phone and during the tasting. The one tip to pass along is that they book up quickly and only are able to take a certain number of reservations for each date. We signed with them more than a year in advance and other people had already signed up for that date before us.

I was so overly impressed with the beauty and taste of a bridal shower cake I ordered through Fluffy Thoughts. The decorator captured the elegance and theme of the shower beautifully. I would highly recommend them for any occasion and will be using them again!

MMM….MMM…MMM… I have been thinking about our wedding cake almost every day leading up to the ceremony and almost every day after since meeting Lara and the team at Fluffy Thoughts Cake. Let’s first start with the tasting experience. My mom and I had the pleasure of tasting a variety of cakes (in cupcake-like form), icings, and fillers in a mix-and-match style and sitting down with Lara to sketch out a first draft of our cake. If I could make a scratch-and-sniff sticker of that experience I would – it was so good. As for the wedding cake itself – everyone said it was one of the best wedding cakes they ever had and their only regret is they didn’t help themselves to seconds! As for my flavors – I went with two: (1) vanilla cake with pastel funfetti, strawberry cream cheese frosting with fresh strawberries and (2) chocolate cake with salted caramel drizzle, chocolate ganache, chocolate crunchies, and a vanilla Italian butter cream. As for my only regret – not insisting that someone be in charge of making sure I tasted both wedding cakes night of. Of course I was too caught up in the evening to seek it out and my only taste was the first ceremonial slice (which was still awesome). At least in about 10.5 months my husband and I get to cash in for our complementary cake topper for our 1 year anniversary. Can’t wait!

Fluffy thoughts was amazing to work with! They had a huge variety of flavor combinations to choose from, and each layer of our cake (chocolate cake with chcolate buttercream, dark chocolate ganache and raspberry preserves, vanilla cake with passionfruit curd and blackberry buttercream, and red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream) were delicious! They also customized the decorations on our cake to perfectly match our DC wedding theme - a fondant border around the bottom of the cake cut to show the DC sky line was gorgeous!

Fluffy Thoughts was a joy to work with from our initial tasting through the day of our wedding. Our cake was absolutely stunning and even more delicious than we could have imagined-- something that our guests echoed throughout our wedding weekend. The team at Fluffy Thoughts is extremely responsive and always provided swift replies to our emails whenever we had questions. Everything was seamless and a resounding success. Make sure to sign your contract early because Fluffy Thoughts is the best wedding cake bakery in the DC area and they book up quickly!

We were so absolutely thrilled with Fluffy Thoughts. Lara was really nice and responsive, and gave us a very reasonable price point for our dessert bar and cake. We decided to do a small 6-inch cake (pumpkin sponge with cinnamon buttercream, and beautiful fondant autumn leaves for decoration) along with our dessert bar (mini pumpkin pies, Nutella mini pop tarts, chocolate cake pops, vanilla cake pops, and raspberry Linzer cookies). Absolutely everything we tried was to die for. The execution we received the day of was amazing - and every one of our guests demolished the desserts - there was nothing left! We can't wait for our one year anniversary so we can go back and get a pumpkin cake in celebration :)
