hi everyone,

so i was wondering. For some cakes it would be cool to have things comming out of them like flowers or hearts or whatever. Can i use wires ( from flower department or just plain wires) and the stick them in the cake. Can that ruin the cake? Also since it is a wire is that bad for the cake like can people get sick from eating the cake after?

like something like this:


what do people use?

Sugarshack's video says to dip the ends of the wire into white chocolate and then let it dry. Then when you stick the wire into the cake, it makes the wire foodsafe. Hope this helps.

The best thing to do would be to stick straws or coffee stirrer straws down into the cake where you want the wires to go. Then just stick the wire down inside the straw and it should be perfectly food safe. Plus you can cut the straws down to whatever size you need.

I'd do it like Misdawn does.

I use the coffee stirrer sticks as well. For a large item, like a floral bouquet with a lot of wires, I would use a straw.

The straw idea is great! I've never heard of that!
