    Tammy are tiny little flowers really that expensive? I have no idea so I'm just asking. But the pictures that Sarah posted are so pretty with the little flowers.

      What about white sugar powdered on top. I would maybe do your initials in white sugar. You would have to do a template. Or you could do sugared fruit. Grapes etc..

      I just found these! I absolutely love them!!

        That first link has some really cute decorating ideas that Tammy could probably apply to her mini-cakes! Good job!

            Alright, I'm late with my opinion.

            1. I really liked the idea of the placecard holder, but I have to agree that Tammy(host) made some very valid points, so maybe doing the cakes and holders seperate would be better.

            2. I did a beach theme wedding shower for my sister last year and my aunt made the cake because that's what she does, I wanted a sandcastle cake, but too hard, so she did a 3 layer cake, it had beige frosting and she had graham cracker crumbs all over it and she did the seashell chocolates for it, but she did a lot of them in a marble color, so they weren't just white or just dark, that might be a better option. If I could get the damn picture to post I'd show you guys, it came out really nice.

            3. I know you said you didn't like the buttercream, were there any others you liked that were lighter in color?

            4. I heard fondant is really yucky, but I've never had it.

            I hope some of this helps!

              Thanks girls for all your suggestions. Jilly, I'd love to see the pic your referring to. I'd like to do flowers, but one rose is 5.00 and each Orchid is about 12.00 each so as you can imagine it would get really expensive quick. Plus right now each cake is going to be about $16.00.

                Ask about tuberose. They are small white flowers and come in flowering branches... so in one branch you could get many. (I couldn't post picture?)

                I'm sure Pamela Floreria could get them for you.
