Award Winning Cakes

 Last year Sedona Cake Couture entered the 1st Annual NACE (National Association of Catering Executives) Confectionary Competition and took home the top awards (Best of Show and People's Choice Awards) out of all the Arizona cake artists who 
entered with this Flower Pot Cake. 
Now, the second competition......the heat was on! How do we top this? The categories of this year's competition were contemporary, traditional, vintage and retro. We did Vintage - this Vintage Urn Cake - yes, it's a cake! And we did it again!! First Place, Best of Show and People's Choice Awards.

Marina's Fabulous Cake

Last weekend I created the most magical wedding cake for  Marina de Jong's wedding at Ashley Manor. Marina is a Pastry Chef herself and had definite, over-the-top ideas for her cake when she sought me out. The cake had sugar crystal gemstones, sugar tassels and lots of braid detail. The color palette of black, gold and silver worked incredibly well together. To see this cake set up in that spectacular room at Ashley manor was breathtaking! I had the honor of having a world-class photographer shoot this cake for me - thank you Katrina Wallace of for coming to my cake studio and creating these beautiful photos in your ninth month of pregnancy! (It's a girl, and we're hoping her name will be Francesca but it looks more like Caroline)!!!!

Wonderland Cake for Sedona Film Festival

I was handed a CD of the movie (not yet released) Phoebe in Wonderland so I could watch it and get inspiration for a cake for the premier of the movie at the Sedona Film Festival. Check it out!
