Andrea personally meets with every bride and groom to talk about their wedding, helping them envision their dream wedding cake which ties in all of their important wedding elements (every single cake is one of a kind!). From there, decisions are made regarding colors, cake flavors, fillings and final design. Andrea graciously prepared some cake samples for us and I can definitely say her creations taste as good as they look. Yum!
You may have seen her impeccable designs on the Food Network but if not, here is a little taste. Traditional, quirky, elaborate and simple, Sedona Cake Couture has done it all:
This 5' 2" cake, featuring 1,000 hand made sugar flowers, was designed for an elaborate pink-themed wedding. The couple requested a cake taller than the bride!
This luxurious gold and dark chocolate wedding cake came with matching individual cakes for every guest!
This bride requested a cake with sugar peonies that matched her bouquet:
A Cinderella inspired wedding cake:
I love this trendy new wedding cake topper - Sugar Shoes!
A bridal shower cake for a bride who loves black and white:
A Sedona inspired groom's cake:
Andrea has a great blog too so be sure to take a peek for more cake inspiration. And, tune in next week to learn about some of Sedona's hottest wedding and honeymoon spots.
Have a great weekend!

Here's a neat story from Brides.com about a photographer husband who is photographing his bride in her wedding gown on all their travels!
I think this is such a fun idea. Lucky for her, her dress packs light! Check out TwoFeetGallery.com for more photos and scoop on a coffee book they're making.

- You could wear a colorful sari to your rehearsal dinner.
- You could incorporate vibrant Indian colors and fabrics in your decor.
- You could have a Mendhi ceremony where brides are intricately decorated with henna "temporary tatoos" pre-wedding. My sister and I had this done on a recent family trip to Texas:
- Or if you're not sure you want to commit to the Mendhi on your body, why not incorporate it into your cake? Just check out this this cake that incorporated this lovely tradition from Lazy Bride.

To celebrate the opening of its new spa, Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, the adults-only, all-inclusive, honeymoon haven in Mexico, is offering the Unlimited Spa Package for guests visiting now through December 23rd. Yeah, there's fine print (four 25-minute treatments per day per person) but still, this is an awesome deal. You'll choose from an array of specialty massages and hydrotherapy treatments at the brand new Secrets Spa by Pevonia. If your guy isn't the pampering type, just grab your bridesmaids and make it a bachelorette getaway.
