Okay, let's see if I can explain what I'm trying to do. I am a novice cake baker and am going to make a two tiered round cake for my daugher's b-day. It's a butterly theme, so I am wanting to attach butterflies (which I already have) to some kind of bowed-shaped wires (or another material) and insert them on the top tier. This way, the butterflies will appear to be fluttering over the cake.

I hope this makes sense. Any thoughts on materials I should use? Not sure what kinds of wires (or other materials) would work best.

I know exactly what you are describing........
Unfortunately I don't know for sure what to tell you.
There have been many discussions about those wires.....usually under something like "what do you use for those swirls Duff makes".
Duff from CharmCity cakes on foodnetwork's Ace of Cakes uses them all the time.

Yes...that's exactly what I'm talking about! Would I be better off posting this on another board? I have no idea what do use. I want it to be thin enough. But, if it's too thin, then I don't think it will stay anchored in the cake properly.

If anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears!
