How do you do that? Every time I've tried, it just sorta wilts. Either I have really, really wimpy wire, or my fondant figure is too heavy (but even then, I've just tried a simple star - no luck). I can't remember the gauge, but I've even taken my wire and "double rolled" it with a drill to make it twice as thick, no such luck.

I'm needing to make a cheerleader cake and I want one girl to be doing a flip off of a pyramid. Help!

I've only used wire once, but it helped to use coffee stirers, the ones that look like really thin straws. Cut them to be flush to the top of cake and then stick your wire into that, that will help the wire not cut through the cake.
I think I used a 22-gauge.
Good luck!--Please post pictures
