Hi Everyone, I am new to this site and just love all the beautiful cakes that you all make!!
I was hoping that somebody would be able to direct me as to where I can buy posy picks in Australia Brisbane to use to put my wired flowers and sprays into my cakes. I can't find them any where!!
Any help would be so greatly appreciated!

I think I know what you are talking about. Check with the Cake Ornament Co. They sell bundles of wires in various thicknesses. They have several locations. I know for sure they have a shop in Slacks Creek and one in Capalaba. Their prices are really reasonable too

I can't get posy thingymigigs here either, i use straws to insert the wires into. I snip them at the length I need, put a blob of fondant into the bottom end and insert the flowers.

great idea thank you! I had read about using straws, but had not thought to plug the bottom with fondant!

Cheers, Emma
