I use 20 gage floral wire. Just remember not to stick the wire right into the cake, use coffee stirrers or slim straws to support the wired inside the body of the cake.

The wire is toxic and can actually change the color and taste of the cake. So buy some coffee stirrers ( you get like 500 for 2.50) to use for your wired letters/flowers etc.
