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:
Ive never heard of them...pretty neat! Thanks for posting!
we use them all the time.
just place them under cake boards with ribbon hanging out.
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.
