Hi everyone. I hope I can make sense of this. I would like to add a couple fondant fish on the top of my cake. They will be thin and flat, almost like cookies, so not too heavy. I'd like them to appear to be swimming, though, and I'm not sure what to use to attach them. I'm thinking a thin wire of sorts, but I don't want them to flop over. Any ideas? I'm still looking through picts on here trying to find something that looks similar to what I want.

Depending on their size, I'd use either toothpics or lolly pop sticks

I found this pict right after I submitted the question. This is what I was picturing, but I don't know what was used or where to find it.

I have used 22 gauge & 26 gauge (thinner) wire that I bought at Joann's Fabric. You can find it in the floral or beading section.
