They made a beautiful cake for my daughter's birthday! THey always are so creative and make the most unique cakes.
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 :)
Fluffy Thoughts Bakery was conceived in the year 2000, when a friend suggested that owner Lara Stuckey combine her two passions, art and baking, into a real business. Lara fell in love with baking at the tender age of five, producing her first creations from an EZ Bake Oven. She found the opportunity to bake at any occasion, experimenting with different flavors and textures. While in graduate school, Lara pursued a more structured baking experience, working part-time at DC based bakery Cakelove. While at Cakelove, Lara observed the bakery business first-hand, and attributes much of her training under local entrepreneur and baker Warren Brown.
With a talent and background in art, Lara infuses sculpture, color, and design into each cake, and customizes her creations based on customer requests. Having participated in several cake decorating courses, most recently with world- renowned cake designer Colette Peters of Colette’s Cakes in New York City, and a Fundamental Pastry Techniques Course at L’Academie de Cuisine, Lara continues to perfect her skills as a cake baker and decorator. She bakes all of her cakes in her storefront in McLean, VA, with a full commercial kitchen!
