I am making a cake and want to have letters and stars popping out the top.
What wire do you guys use?
I have tried using wire before and it just pulls the cake apart.
Thanks for your help.

I used 20 gauge on my sweet 15 topsy turvy cake. They were sturdy enough to stand upright but flexible enough to be able to bend. HTH

I used 20 gauge for stars I did last weekend and I could fit 3 wires into the "drink" straws to stick those into the cake.
One of these days, I'm going to purchase a digital camera so I can post pics!!!!

I use 18 gauge. Plenty sturdy.
