I would love to know any tips as well.  I tried to do that on a beach cake once and I had the hardest time.  The frosting didn't want to stick and kept pulling up.

You could always make the letters in  royal icing and allow them to dry and then place them onto the sand with a bit of icing on the back just to get them to stick down...

 

I haven't ever tried it, but it is just a suggestion...

i know it's beyond your time limit, but you could have pressed some of the graham crackers together with some butter, as in a crust, and then written in the "wet sand" just like at the seashore.

Thanks for all the tips.  I'll have to remember next time.  Here are pics of the completed cakes. In the end, the bride and groom loved them so I'm happy!
