How do you attach the decorations to the wire.Do you insert the wire into the decoration or do you wait for it to dry and attach with icing...

Depends ...

on light things you can heat the tip of the wire and insert (hooked end) into the fondant and it will stay OR use gumglue dipped hooked end into the gp or fondant decoration... If decoration is dried attach to back with gumglue or RI

I have used the wire found in the floral section of local craft stores.

I use floral wire. I tend to wrap in floral tape also, but I usually make flowers and not other designs. My advise is to make sure when you are using foreign bodies around any food product that you are food safe. Do not insert directly into a cake. Use a mound of fondant/gumpaste you insert into that can be removed before cutting or make a topper plaque using a small (3") cake board with fondant/gumpaste on it. Or use food safe posy picks. Even using straws may cause issues as the wire can still come into contact with the cake. And nobody would want to cut a cake with mold growing. icon_eek.gif
