Thank you for your thread on the floral wire! I always wondered about putting wire into or even on a cake! I love the look it gives, "but how sturdy and how safe can it really be?", was my exact thoughts. Your idea for the straws is brilliant! You can go to your local Sam's Club or even speak with a grocery store owner/manager about ordering some from them (they usually have ordering quotas to meet each week and appreciate the customers who order in bulk for this reason!) My folks own a small store and I can tell you first hand, this is why you sometimes receive a discount for buying in bulk, it helps the owners so much! In fact, we try to order cases of grocery staples when we can!! Back to cake talk now, lol, The florist picks that someone else mentioned is another good and affordable idea if you had a good size cluster of wires. I am so inspired and ready to take on this decorating skill, now that I have found a better alternative to doing it!! Thank you so much again!!!!!!! :D
