what about using the garmet tag as the place to write the proposal?

Well if he's old enough to be getting proposed to you probably don't have to worry about a choking hazzard. I think I'ld get a little plastic ball, hollow out a space between the layers and hide it in the cake. Then I'ld carefully mark where that fell into on the side so when decorating it I could put some kind of tiny marker to show which slice had the ring./note/ proposal whatever He goes to dig in and finds it in the slice!

I like the idea of having writing on the shirt tag, you could hide the ring box in the sleeve as a play on "something up my sleeve" in presenting this cake maybe make a poem on the shirt tag like:

They say its better to give than it is to receive
So for you this year, I have something up my sleeve...

Then when he eats the slice of sleeve and finds the ring...viola, Will you marry me?

HTH

I have no idea better than the ones presented, I just need to say that is a balls move! I wouldn't do that in a million years! I would think that if he wanted to marry her, he would ask, but I have been accused of being old fashioned before! When i was 11, I was told I had "an old soul" by a little old lady in a nursing home I volunteered in
