Hello CC'ers I have 2 quick questions.
I'm hoping I understood this correctly, when inserting wires into cakes, is it fine as long as the wires are covered in tape? I've never used wires before so this is a 1st.
Secondly, does anyone know where to buy cardboards for square cakes, every where seems to have rounds but no squares, even my local cake shop. I can buy square drums, but not the plain single wall cardboards like I use on my rounds.
I don't put wires in the cake, covered in tape or not...floral tape especially seems icky to me. You can dip the wires in chocolate or use a straw or coffee stir to put them in.
For the square boards, could you use foam core boards cut to size? It's easier to cut squares than circles with them and they're really strong.
You can put wires directly into cakes. If it is for a customer, make sure you have that in writing for them. I would recommend buying a posy pick for the wires, they are like a little plastic tube that you put in the cake that you put the wires into.
I get the rectangles at Michaels and cut...
