        I think the individual cakes are really cute and a great idea! I do like the name card holder on top of the cake. If I was one of your guests I would want to eat it right away! I love chocolate!

          OK, this makes a WORLD of difference in my opinion.

          ok tammy, don't get mad but here is my opnion...

          i don't really like the idea of the frames on the cake for a bunch of reasons:

          1. do not like cake out on the table...
          a. the cake will get funny and melty outdoors...
          b. it will take up table space when dinner is served.

          2. when people are done eating the cake they will have frames that are kind of sticky.

          3. i think the idea of a mini cake is so cute and just having a simple flower or shells will be so pretty that the frame will take away from that.

          what about just having the frames on the table to help with seating/whatever...and the cakes to be served after dinner....then there will be the ahhhs...when they all come out...stagger the good surpises.

            I don't know about a frame on top of a cake....seems a bit too heavy and out of place. (I love the frame though!)

            Why not just some candy shells on top?

            Fondant is NOT tasty.

              Hmm,, Tammy you gave me some stuff to think about. I heard that Fondent (? spelling) is good for outdoor weddings, so I heard it won't melt. (not sure if that is true)

              BUT, I didn't think of the frames being sticky and with chocolate on them. Hmm I would almost have to supply something to "clean" them off so that they wouldn't be.

              Here is a picture of what it "could" look like at the tables.

                The Candy shells was actually our orginally idea, but with a chocolate cake and white seashells I'm just not sure how it would look..

                I've never tasted Fondant,, It's not good huh?

                  Well, I'm joining up late, Tammy- darn sleeping sooo gets in the way of timely posting!
                  Anyway, my thoughts:
                  * Fondant- makes a beautiful cake, tastes not so great!
                  * Frame on cake- while a very cute idea, I also agree with Tammy host that the picture frames will be very sticky and the cakes will get in the way during dinner. I think having individual cakes for each guest is such an unexpected gesture that it should be its own special presentation- more WOW factor that way! I really like the frames you've picked though, so I would definitely include them on the tables.
                  * Chocolate with chocolate- I love the idea of the cakes sitting in brown sugar to look like sand. I did a quick search on the knot and here are some that i came up with:
                  This first one is my favorite, I love the white flower on the top of the cake!

                    Thanks Sarah.. Yeah after I thought about what Tammy said about the frames being messy in the cake, I think I'll have to figure something else out. I think I may just end up doing the orginal plan of two candy shells on the top of the cake (in white) and one on the side (white) sitting on sand (aka sugar) with a few pearls here and there.

                    But I really do like those place cards,,, hmm I'll have to think about this whole idea more..
