Where do you get the wires used to hold fondant decorations up and off the cake? Any special tips for using these? (inserting, etc.)

It is floral wire. You can find it in the floral section at Walmart or any craft store. Just make sure you don't buy it too flimsy, it won't hold up.

You also don't want to stick the bare wire into your cake. I insert coffee stirers into the cake and put the wires into them.

Also, be careful not to allow the wire to come in contact with the cake. I use (plastic) floral tips to hold the wire and insert into the cake... works like a charm everytime!! ~ Jaime

You can also dip the wires in melted chocolate, let set then insert. You just don't want the bare wire to touch anything edible.

I was thinking about this today. Couldn't you dip them in melted wax? (I know they sell it here in the baking isle & with canning ingredients)
