I’m confused. What is a ribbon pull and what does it have to do with cupcakes and charms?

@Mrs Hedgehog:  A ribbon pull is when tiny silver charms are baked or frosted into the cake.  An attached ribbon is left hanging on the outside. The bridemaids pull the ribbon and reveal a charm.  Each charm has a meaning. Horseshoe for luck, and baby means fertility, etc.


@redrosewolf: What about making a separate breakaway bouquet, and attaching a charm to each flower.  When you toss it the flowers will separate and each lady can grab one. If you use silk flowers, it would make a nice keepsake for the ladies.
