Hi All,

I was wondering how those who place wires in flower spikes hide or cover the hole that's made after you place the spike in the cake.

I'm covering a cake in fondant and can't figure out how to cover the hole I'm going to create. I'm trying to avoid placing wires straight into the cake.

Any help would be appreciated.

I use hollow plastic lollipop sticks to hold the wire. It's a lot smaller than a flower spike. If you have a cluster of wires, like a whole spray of flowers to put on the cake, then usually there's enough flowers to hide the bigger hole that a flower spike makes.

If you can't find plastic lollipop sticks, coffee stirs will work, as long as they're the hollow kind.
