I apologize if this is a repeated post, but how do you attach your RI snowflakes to wires? I have a little experience with attaching fondant/gum paste decorations to wires, but have no idea how to do royal icing decorations. Can anyone help me?
I've never done snowflakes on wires, but I would do it by laying the snowflake down and place the wire on top and "glue" it with royal icing. Leave it to dry before attaching it to your cake.
Let them dry completely, flip them over, lay the wire on back and repipe the snowflake. This adds strength to the snowflake and the wire is encased between the front and the back.
Thank you! I've seen so many beautiful snowflake cakes that I'm anxious to try it. I appreciate your assistance.
Sorry to be a post-jacker, but can you guys tell me what wire to use? I just love the look, best of luck with your snowflakes!
I'd use a 26 gauge. Remember the higher the number gauge the thinner the wire. That will help you decide what size to use.
