Yes, floral wire. No, not food safe. icon_biggrin.gif

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.

I used floral wires in straws and put fondant at the hole ends.
