I want to put some stars on floral wire to come out of the top of the cake. Should I make these stars out of gumpaste or fondant, and to what thickness do I roll it out to? And is floral wire food safe, or at least able to be put into the cake without worries?

Not directly. Here's a helpful thread:

Mixing gumpaste and fondant will yield a decoration that will dry more quickly than fondant but less quickly than gumpaste. Only roll as thick as necessary so that wires can be inserted without tearing out.
