Bridesmaids Charm Pull Cake

How do I put the charms in the cake?
post #2 of 28
They don't actually go "in" the cake. I placed mine on the board and then the cake on top. The charms were wrapped (to keep them clean and food safe) with a ribbon attached. The bridesmaids then pulled the ribbons and unwrapped their charm right before the cutting cermony. HTH

For my older sisters wedding the decorator placed them between the layers of the cake, with the filling. It looked like he had just pushed them into the cake. Sorry not much help. Make sure they know which bridesmaid gets what charm, they did include a name on them. I go the wishbone. That was seven years ago and it has been in my car since on the mirror. (Still waiting for it to work though)

Here is a very pretty one done by a baker in the next town over from me. I've never heard of it before until I saw her photo - it's such a cute idea!

Actually it's meant to be a "luck of the draw" kind of thing... the bride isn't supposed to assign a charm to each bridesmaid, but rather they each draw one at random (although traditionally they all pull them out in unison) and whatever they get is their fortune for the future.

I place them under the bottom of the cake with the ribbons trailing out on the board.

At my sisters wedding they were pushed into the slice of cake before it was served.

i have done this several times.. i do it like jlynnw and pinkziab.... it is luck of the draw in the ones i did.. sometimes the bride furnishes them. sometimes i furnish them and add it to the charge of the cake..

I did one last year. I just pushed the charms into the cake at even intervals. The bride purchased specific charms for her bridesmaids, so I put very tiny initials on the attached bows so that each girl would pull out the charm meant for her. The initials were impossible to see without looking very closely, so they did not detract from the overall look of the cake. A picture of the cake is attached.

i've never heard of this either. can someone explain? are they just little charms that the bride gives to bridesmaids as gifts?? do they go in the actual wedding cake or do the bridesmaids get their own special cake? color me curious! icon_biggrin.gif

Sometimes brides request that the charms be inserted under the top tier of the wedding cake, and have their attendants choose and pull the charms out right before or after the cake cutting.

Wouldn't it be cool if they made charms like these for groomsmen, that could be inserted in a groom's cake?

I just finished making my first wedding charm cake! The cake I made was a 3 tier stacked cake. I placed the charms with a ribbon attached on the cake board for the middle tier and placed the cake on top of them. Frosted and applied fondant. I typed out a short description of what each charm meant (to be read as each charm is removed).
