Does anyone have a picture of a cake they did with those wedding charms in it? I have a girlfriend who wants me to do it and I need some ideas.
I don't know if you have done this cake or not yet - I did a shower cake with the charms (I don't have a pic), but I iced the cake in fondant. I took each charm and tied a ribbon on it (about 4-5 inches, and inserted the charm into the cake. I took another small ribbon, and made a bow, and used buttercream to adhere the bow to cover the part where the charm was inserted. It turned out cute - I had never done one before...
I would just lay the charms out on the cakeboard before you set the layers down or gently push them in after you ice and the patch with border.The cake charms I have only seen have been on the edge of the cake and each bridesmaid just grabs a ribbon and pulls it out.I don't think you need to completely poke it inside the cake.
