are people using floral wire, and is that ok to stick in a cake with fondant decorations on them?
Yes, floral wire. No, not food safe.
People stick it in the cake anyhow but they shouldn't. Instead, stick the wires in a posy pic or a straw or a coffee stir or if you need to use a lot of individual wires, dip the wires in melted chocolate and let it harden before inserting them in the cake.
ok thanks so much I will do the chocolate thing maybe...or the straws haha
now wait a minute...sticking wire inside straws....it would still be in the cake...better dip in chocolate
I used floral wires in straws and put fondant at the hole ends.
aha...that would work.where are yoou all finding the heavy gauge wire? what about the floral wire that has a white wrapped something on the outside? I bet you could cover that with some thin mmf huh?
