Inspiration for a Desert-Themed Wedding Cake - Flying a Wedding Cake from NYC to Tucson, Arizona

We are working on a very special cake for a very special bride who is getting married in Tucson this weekend...the lovely Anja Winikka and her groom-to-be, Ben Bullington!! Having worked with Anja, the online site editor of The Knot, for many years, we know that few can surpass Anja in her wealth of experience and insight.
We're very excited to be designing Anja's and Ben's wedding cake and personally flying with it from New York City to Phoenix, and then driving it to their reception in Tucson, Arizona! Here is a peek of from where we drew our inspiration. Stay updated with our cake journey on our Facebook and Twitter  

We're very excited to be working with Ara Farnan from Rock Paper Scissors Events, who is designing the whole event, and Ceci New York, who designed beautiful artwork for the invitations based on the gorgeous Tucson landscape, with rich and vibrant colors against the desert neutrals and blue skies. 

Besides the rich colors of the Arizona desert and stunning oranges, pinks, and greens of the desert flowers, we were inspired by Anja's unique engagement ring, and used its details in our custom wedding cake design.

Around the base of each tier of the cake, you can see the flower detail of Anja's engagement ring band, as well as the unique desert flowers that decorate the five-tiered custom design. We cannot wait to share the final result with you all on Saturday! Don't forget to stay updated with Anja's cake transformation from inspiration to reality on our Facebook and Twitter!
