I am having a difficult time adding decorations to wires to hang off the cake. it seems like every time I insert a wire into the gum paste or fondant the wire makes the hole too big and it just falls out. Any advice?

Heat the wire first.

Or, insert the wire, take it out, dip it in melted white chocolate/candy melts and re-insert. Make sure you only use a little bit and that the color matches your decoration.

Either should act like a glue to help secure the decoration. thumbs_up.gif

I used a straw to put the wires inside and it worked ok,
