I'm trying to make a tiered cake that has curls of wire with flowers and such at the end but floral wire isn't going to work. I've seen it done at the Charm City site so I know that there's something that will do it. I'm sure I'll have to go to Home Depot, but I just want to know what I'm looking for. Also, the party is in three days so I can't order anything. I appreciate your time reading this and I'd be greatful for any advice!
Thanks and have a great day!
There are different guages of floral wire, maybe you just need a heavier guage.
At Home Depot in the picture hanging supplies department you should be able to get a small roll of 14 gauge or 16 gauge wire.
I have not made a cake with the flowers or balls on the wire yet, but I would think those gauges of wire would be heavy enough to hold up.
HD may even carry something stronger -- (the lower the gauge number the heavier / stronger the wire is).
Thanks for the replies! I'm down to the wire (pardon the pun) and this is a great help!
If you're super-desperate (and it won't look too tacky) maybe you could use a white clothes hanger. Make sure to put a straw or something in your cake for whatever wire you use for support.
I have wanted to try this myself but wondered about the wire and support, would just straws hold enough? is there other options?
