I have seen many different cakes that I've seen that have wires as decorations that have balls of fondant on the end & sometime stars...etc

Where can I find these? Or Where do I get the Wires to make them. And are the Wire safe for the cake?

Here's a pic of one of the cakes:

Not knowing where you're located, it's hard to tell you where you can get them. But I do know that Michael's sells Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes) products and those wires look very much like that brand. They are supposed to be foodsafe also. HTH

Just a side note - icon_smile.gif
I dip my wires in sugar syrup and then slide them into the fondant shapes - then either stick the wires in a block of polystryrene foam or lay them down until the shape has well and truely adhered to the wire.
That way you won't have any slipping and sliding when they go into the cake.


Sugar syrup = equal parts of water to refined sugar.
Bring both to the boil -
Stir gently -
When boiled - remove from heat
Allow to cool and then place in sterilizedc jar.
Keeps in the fridge for a good month.
When you want to use it just transfer a little to a dish - that way you don't get cross contaminatin.


And i also use a cake pick to insert the wires into - some use bubble tea straws - but i find using the cake picks work best - and ensure that no wire is exposed in the cake.
