Thanks to Belle; we got these tips on how to creatively include these fabulous lil pieces in your event:
  1. As wedding favors for your guests.
  2. As welcome treat on a side plate in each guest place setting. 
  3. To be your featured dessert on your Dessert Bar. Use them to flatter your dessert table by placing them amongst sweets. Decorate them with some other plain cakes so that they would stand out. This would add dimension to your sweets bar, also to give the opportunity to present the guests with more than one cake flavor. 
  4. As Centrepieces. Double the purpose by placing them on each guest table along with other centerpieces. They would bring more texture to your decor and give you another way to showcase your wedding theme and/or colors.
