I'm planning to use floral wire on a cake I'm doing - but it occurred to me that maybe I shouldn't be sticking metal wire into the cake? Is that bad? If so, is there some kind of plastic insert I can use to put the wire into, to keep the cake from contacting the metal - do they make such a thing? I guess I could go to Michael's and ask....

Anyone have experience with this? Thanks!!

I either use a flower pick or a straw and put the wires inside that. Then there is no contact with the cake and the wires are easy to remove. Hope that helps!

I just did one with a spray coming off the top of the cake. I used a flower spike with cotton in it to hold the wires in place.

I also did a wedding topper kinda the same way. I used a round tip with cotton in it with the heavy cross topper in the tip and stuck down in the center of the cake.

I've used plastic drink stirrers and found them to work out great. They are real narrow unlike regular straws. Good Luck.
