Hello all,
Please can you tell me what the curled ribbon bits behind the teddy are made of and what they are called?

Here is the link to the cake.
Many thanks.

It could be just the light hitting the wire - but they look rather thick to me
I use gauge 26 for all my cake explosions.
After cutting out my shape - i dip the end of the wire in my sugar syrup - insert into the fondant shape then allow them to lay flat for at least 24 hours to completely dry -
You can make them as far advanced as you wish.
Then fill a flower pick with fondant and slowly insert the wires -

I am asking about the curly things behind the bear and not the fondant decorations that were stuck on the wires. I have done explosions before and have different guaged wires but dont know what the curly things are and what they are made of.

Any help please?

They do look like wires, but they also look tapered. And I've never seen tapered wires, maybe someone else has. I would just ask her and hope for a response.

I think i have finally found what they are...artificial bear grass which can be found in the florist shops!!! They can be curled with scissors.
Thanks for the help.
