Is there any such thing as wire that is made specifically for use with cake?...or that is labeled "non toxic"? I often use the metal floral wire to attach stars, etc. to for a fun topper...and have also seen the white..i guess fabric covered wires---but how do you know what is safe?

I'd like to know too. But I use coffee stirrers to keep the wire out of the cake. I wouldn't want to take a chance. Plus they help support the decoration so it doesn't tear the cake.

I was wondering that as well and also what gauge is a good one to use for the decorations.

The straw/stirrers is a good idea. Hadn't thought of that--and it would be easier than having to wrap everything. Still...if nobody has come up with non-toxic "cake wire" for decorations, they need to-- I think there would be money in that icon_smile.gif
