On our customized cakes, we used the Gum Paste Wild Strawberry Cake Set, but sets come in a variety of other designs. Be sure to order them in advance (about three to six months prior to your wedding); they'll be sent out two weeks before the wedding. If you'd like the adornments to match your wedding palette exactly, mail in fabric swatches. The decorations arrive nestled in food-safe cushioning and packaged in kraft-paper boxes; they should be stored in their boxes at room temperature. Although they'll last for up to a year, they'll be edible only for about six weeks.
