I'm wanting to put fondant cut out butterflies on a cake and to have them look like they are in mid-air without anything supporting them so I'm needing some sort of clear 'wire' type stuff. The only product I can seem to find is millinery wire which isn't actually wire at all, it's just firm clear plastic. Would this be suitable to use? Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance
AMost people just use florist wire. It's not invisible though!
AYes I have used florist wire previously but for this particular design, I need it to be clear so as to be 'invisible'
AI found some chocolate lollipop sticks the other day that are clear.
Maybe I just don't know what's out there, but by definition, I'm thinking wire is metal and I can't think of anything any metal that could be transparent. My guess would be plastic would be your best bet.
Even if you use that, it's still going to be obvious that they aren't floating in mid air. Customers are limited to what's possible in the physical world we live in.
AWhat about clear jewelry thread or cord? You would need something to support either end (lollipop sticks?), but the butterflies would be suspended on the clear strand so they would look like they are floating. I've purchased this type of jewelry cord at Dollarama (Canada).
AThanks for all your replies
