For the life of me I cannot remember how to get to the point of searching for a topic. I have a Dora cake coming up and I want to know what type of wire I can use for the stars. Forgive me for being a idiot but I'm not familiar with some of the upgrade on CC. icon_redface.gif I know that there was some topics out there regarding food safe wires I just want to know which one I should use. Plz help me!

i don't think any of the wires on the market are labeled food safe. You can use floral wire for your stars, and either dip the end of the wire into melted chocolate to insert it in the cake. or slip the end of the wire into a coffee stirrer and slip that into the cake.

I just learnt this fabulous trick of dipping the floral wires into melted candy melts from Ms Sharon of SugarShack. icon_smile.gif

This thread covers a rather lengthy & informative discussion about wires in cakes:
