About Flour Girl
At Flour Girl Wedding Cakes we are focused solely on your event. We are not a full service, cookie cutter bakery. Every cake, cupcake, cookie and pastry is custom designed for you. By only booking a limited number of events each week, we feel that we can offer unsurpassed attention to detail, freshness and personalized customer service to our clients. Whether you have a wedding, anniversary or birthday, for 2 people or 200, we strive to make the entire process as smooth and stress free as possible.
The girl behind the name is Sarah Lofgren ~ owner, baker and resident sweet tooth of Flour Girl Wedding Cakes. Sarah is a native San Franciscan who has relocated to beautiful Lake Tahoe with her husband Dave and their sons Hunter James and Odin Henry.
“Simply put, food is my passion. I have been working in the food industry for over twenty years. I received my degree from the California Culinary Academy. I have worked at several of the most well acclaimed restaurants in San Francisco and won ‘Best Desserts in South Lake Tahoe.’ I can now be found daily baking at my shop in South Lake Tahoe.
The only thing I love as much as food are weddings. Therefore, I have combined my two loves into the job of my dreams ~ creating beautiful and mouthwatering wedding cakes. So, come meet with me and together we will create the perfect cake for your most perfect day.”

She is a joy to work with and an all around amazing human being. Lori is happily married to her awesome husband Dru and has raised two wonderful children, Dru and Emily.
Natalie is a brand and marketing consultant who splits her time between Lake Tahoe & Seattle. Originally from the PNW, she has lived in Lake Tahoe for 6 years.

Natalie is known for frequently popping into the shop, stealing samples and trying our latest creations. She manages our social media accounts while we are knee deep in buttercream. She holds a marketing degree from the Art Institute of Seattle.
When she is not working, she is either adventuring with her 10 year old son Caleb, trying out a new restaurant with friends, enjoying a craft cocktail or taking a spin or barre class to work off all the food she enjoys trying.
