The picture doesn't work.

Anyways, try using gumpaste because it dries faster than fondant.

you could try piping royal icing onto wax paper and putting the wire in while wet, then let dry and carefully peel off of paper.

Use gumpaste, I would recommend Satin Ice gumpaste. When I do things like that, I doulbe the heart, put the wire in between so that you don't see the wire on the back, but two hearts. Gumpaste will dry pretty quickly
