I'm getting ready to purchase some paper covered cake wire. I am going to be placing some fondant decorations at the end of them and stick them in the cake.
I need a strong gauge wire. I forget if lower the number the strong or higher the number the strongest???
I found some 16 gauge, is this a strong wire?
BTW, I will be coating the wire in chocloate and might even place them inside tea stirrers for added protections from touching the cake, I just forgot how to determine which gauge is the strongest???
The lower the number the thicker the wire, please use the stirrers to place them in the cake , chocolate can melt into the cake and be consumed , or people are tempted to lick them when they are removed , therefore exposing customers to what are usually lead wires.
Oh and a 16 is pretty thick
