Do you guys know what gauge of wire is used when they are used to have a ball of fondant or other decoration coming out of a cake?

I use either an 18 or a 20- depending on the weight of the decoration icon_smile.gif

Is the wire just stuck into the cake or is it wrapped with floral tape (the part that's inserted into the cake and not see)?

18 gauge if it is really heavy... the wire will rip (well sometimes) through your cake so if you have something really heavy use a flower pik... (I learned the hard way!)
