Vanilla beans!!

How great of an idea is this: Vanilla beans for branches on a wedding cake. I LOVE it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. 
And, if I can find them cheaply enough, they'd make great bird's nest materials for our cake topper:
 I suspect that might be too expensive, so I may stick to nest materials out of peeled/sliced chocolate. But still... VANILLA BEANS! Genius.


  1. oOOOhhh I love it!! AND how stinking cute is that little bird topper?? Did you make it? I love his tail-feather tux-tails!!

  2. Ok, so do you like the little top hat/veil birdies better than the ceramic ones? I don't want the cake to look too kiddy and homemade. Thoughts?
