I am making a Hollywood theme cake and I am trying to do the stars on the wire to stick in the top of the cake like this: [http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1390662]. I cant get the fondant to stay on the wire. I cut out 2 stars and sandwiched them together with the wire in the middle, and the wire just pulls right out. HELP!!

Hi there, the link is not working, but I know what you mean. I use only one star but a bit thicker, not two sandwich together. Then put a little bit of egg white or sugar glue on the end of the wire and then insert it through the star. Then let them dry properly, lying down. And the other thing is that I use gumaspte or 50/50 mix of gumpaste and fondant. Not fodnant alone! icon_smile.gif
