For Those Who Stick Wires In Cakes - Page 9

post #121 of 266
I thought I would mention that I found cake wires at Michaels. Under Duff's new line. The back of the package says to insert them directly into the cake.

I always wondered why they didn't just manufacture wires meant to be used in cake. Now I guess they are!

I use spaghetti noodles painted with the gel colors and a little vodka for a lot of stuff sticking out of cakes. Not sure if I saw the idea here on CC or another sight but for the little that i do as a hobby baker it's worked great. Very easy to adjust how long it is to change height of something too. Just break a little off. Do always make sure that i paint a few extras in case of accidental shortenings though.

Nikki, I know this is a bit belated, but I make purse cake handles by stringing fondant beads onto wire, then put coffee stirrers in each end of the purse to hold the wires. I find it necessary to do this regardless of whether the wires are food safe because I don't want to risk the weight of the handle causing the wire to cut through the cake. I wouldn't eat the beads on the wire (but hubby would, lol).

Thanks for all the suggestions (coffee stirrers, straws, uncooked spaghetti noodles) of things that can be used to keep wire out of cake! We have a responsibility to keep our cakes "safe".

Except now they're already sold out! I had the Michael's guy check all stores in a 50 mile radius...nothing. icon_mad.gif None in store, none on order.

Duff's site sells them for less, except the shipping kills you! icon_mad.gif

I knew I should have bought more than 1 pkg. icon_sad.gif

Wow, I just made my 1st cake with wire! When I went to the cake store the OWNER lead (pun intended) me right to the wire choices he had available and said everyone used wire...I asked if it was safe and he said "yes". I'll be using the straw method from now on thanks!

How do you all know Duff's wires are food safe?! I looked at the package at the store and it says nothing about what the wire is made of...and doesn't say "food safe"...just curious?!
