does anyone know where i can find these online??? thank you so much everyone
you can google floral wires. They sell them at Michael's or any craft store.
I use either 16 or 18 gauge floral wire. You can get it at just about any place that has a craft section. I get mine at Wal-Mart.
thank you!!! im sorry it took me a while to post back i have a new baby, so i get on here when i get a chance, thank you soo much though!!! kika
But don't stick the wires directly into the cakes!!
oh ok, i was under the impretion that people put them directly into the cake, good to know
What do you stick them into? I also thought the cake.
You can fit the wires in those little coffee straws. That way the wire is not touching the cake which is very important especially if the cake is acidic. (something like a lemon cake with lemon curd.)
Thanks mkolmar...Do you use wires when you do lettering too or do you use toothpicks to stand them up on a cake?
I use either toothpicks, cocktail sticks (which are just longer toothpicks), or bamboo skewers, depending on the weight of the pieces that need to stand up.
