what kind and or gauge do you find is the best to use i dont have a real heavy topper but i would like ample support where do you guys find it and whats a good gauge?
Any hardware store
do i use copper wire or just stainless steel or is there something else
I've heard never to actually put wire in the cake. I think a lot of people slip straws in to hold the wire. Some may wrap it in saran first.
I use 24g for my beaded barrettes and I think it would be too flimsy to hold up anything substantial. So, probably thicker than that.
it is florists wire, i believe you can get it in micheles... i dont know. ordering on line means you have a much better selection. most people use a 16-24 guage wire. (thicker wire = lower number) so if you want it standing straigt, get something like the 16.
i used a 24 guage for my celebration cupcakes with fondant stars.
see thats what i thought i went to michaels and he said they dont sell floral wire because all flowers are already wired up only florists know where to get them because they use with fresh flowers blah blah blah grrrrr but i couldnt find any maybe my michaels sucks
