Sticky Fingers: More than Fabulous

If you think choosing a cake made without eggs or dairy products means you can’t have the wedding cake of your dreams and eat it, too—think again! As an award-winning, nationally recognized vegan bakery and café, Sticky Fingers Bakery will work with you to create a gorgeous, mouth-watering cake that is sure to delight even the pickiest of palates. Whether you choose a traditional white beauty or a modern work of art, even hard-to-please family members will be licking their fingers and asking for seconds!

And we’re not just for people who regularly avoid eating animal products—many of our satisfied customers are not even vegetarian. When the February 2010 issue of BRIDES magazine featured one of our creations, the bride explained why she chose us even though the wedding couple was not vegan: “it was the tastiest cake we tried!"

Because Sticky Fingers cakes are dairy and egg free, they are safe to consume for those with lactose and egg allergies - and they are 100% cholesterol free as well!

The biggest green initiative we have going is that we don’t use any animal products! With animal agriculture now recognized as the single biggest contributor to global warming, a vegan lifestyle is a mighty powerful way to lessen environmental destruction! Some of our other green efforts include recycling materials at our shop, using biodegradable packaging and utensils (and encouraging customers to use our non-disposable cutlery when dining at the shop), utilizing wind energy, and supporting other green charitable organizations through event sponsorships and product donations. And most of our employees either bicycle to work or rely on public transportation.

Sticky Fingers Bakery is known for more than just fabulous wedding cakes! We are also a café’, offering such hearty savories as grilled cheese, quesadillas, lasagna, soups, brunch, and more—all vegan, of course. You will also find a fully stocked bakery case filled with an array of delectable sweets, pastries, and other baked goods. Plus, you can sip a soy latte or fair-trade coffee while enjoying our free WI-FI. And we cater, too!

For two years in a row, Washington City Paper readers have voted us “Best Bakery,” beating out the city’s non-vegan bakeries!

For the bride and groom:

Everyone wants cake at their wedding, whether it takes the form of a towering tiered wonder or a spread of colorful cupcakes! Just make sure your style and your wishes are reflected in the cake design and flavor(s) you choose.

Sticky Fingers Bakery works with each client to create a custom cake that fits the couple and their day perfectly. We at Sticky Fingers believe that cake is meant to be enjoyed, and we think the tasting, design, and ordering process should be just as enjoyable! So come in with your ideas and your questions and enjoy the process!

If you plan to decorate your cake with flowers, make sure you find a local florist who can supply you with food safe flowers that are pesticide free. They may even be able to find edible varieties that are in season with your wedding date.

Alternatively, you can ask Sticky Fingers to create our special hand-sculpted sugar flowers for your cake. We can create any type of flower, and each arrangement is custom made just for you! Plus, since they are made of sugar, you don't have to worry about pesticides!
