A Cascade of Tulle
Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, 1998
Present a classic favor -- sugared almonds wrapped in tulle rounds -- in a new way: Tie them with big bows, and arrange them on a cake stand to mimic the shape of a wedding cake. They are easy to assemble, especially if you use a quick faux bow that looks like the real thing.
1 1/2-inch-wide ribbon
Make the bows first, using 1 1/2-inch-wide ribbon; for the bows with long streamers, use pieces 24-inch-long pieces; for the others, 12 inches is long enough.
Pinch the center of a ribbon into a Z shape, and cinch it with a piece of 1/4-inch-wide ribbon about 8 inches long. Place a handful of almonds on two tulle rounds; use the thin ribbon to bind the top. Arrange the bundles on stacked cake stands.
