I love this idea. It is very unique and practical, too.

This is beautiful, I never thought of making a 3-tiered cake for a card box. It is very unique and it will definately have resale value after the wedding is over. I made my own card box and I sold it after my wedding and got more for it than what it cost to make, it was nothing this unique though. Great idea!!!!

THIS IS VERY PRETTY BUT MY GRANDDAUGHTER IS GETING MARRIED IN FLORIDA NEXT SUMMER AND THEY R DOING THE WEDDING IN SEA SHELLS AND TAKING THERE VOWS AT THE OCEAN IS THERE SOMTHING WITH SEASHELLS U COULD RECOMEND THANK U
