Has anyone ever heard of/used these before? I have a bride that would like them incorporated into her cake. Apparently this is a Louisiana/New Orleans thing?

I've heard of them. It's a tradition that originated in Victorian England. Here's a couple of links for you:

Sharon, thanks for telling me that. The way the bride was describing I thought I had to somehow get them in under a layer of frosting or something LOL!

i lay mine in place before i drop the upper tier. looks nicer than shoving them in after stacking.
