I am making my first wedding cake this weekend. I am wanting to do a beaded topper. I have wire, and the beads and am putting them together now, but my question is, how do I keep the wires from cutting through the cake (like falling over with the weight of the beads). Is there something I can wrap the wire around to stick in the cake?
Any help would be great!
Thanks so much.

Stick the wires into a piece of a drinking straw, and insert that into the cake. You can put a little fondant inside the straw to keep the wires from flopping around if you need to, or wrap the wires with floral tape until they fit snugly inside the straw.

I have always used flower spikes and filled them with fondant, and that works well. The straws are a great idea, I will have to try that sometime.

Thanks for the tips. I may try the one with the straws (mostly cause that's what I have in the house icon_lol.gif ). If anyone else has any ideas, I am still open to suggestions.
I am going to see if I can get the flower spikes somewhere too.
