I keep reading about these cute little charms that can be baked into the cake and pulled out by your bridesmaids, etc.. They are symbolic and from the Victorian era traditions. I also read that some states ban baking these into the cake.
Is anyone tempted in using these charms in their cake, or around their cake(as decoration) or in some other way, such as on a flower boquet?
here is the link so you can see what I am talking about:

I am seriously considering it. I am having a Victorian wedding, so they would fit right in with our theme. Actually, the baker doesn’t bake them in the cake. They set them under the first layer before they put the cake together and ice it.

I’d be afraid someone would choke!

@RayRayFurious: Before the cake is cut, the people that you want to have the charms take hold of one of the ribbons that are attached to each charm, then they do “a ribbon pull” to get their charm. There is a fortune for each charm.
