Hi I am making a 3 tier faux wedding cake with gumpaste roses. The roses are all on wires and I have a few different sizes.


How do I attach them to the cake? If I just poke the wires through, will it hold enough or do I need to add something else to make them stay? 

And can I transport it like this?

Stick them right into the Styrofoam cake dummy, it doesn't get any easier or better then that. If the wires are really flimsy fold it in 1/3's length-wise and twist the wire, to make it stronger/thicker.
