I have used copper tubing (that you get at the home improvement store) with much success.

Mark ...

Really what sort of thickness did you use, the one they use on cake boss looks like some sort if poseable twine !

Jenniffer White ...

Oh man, I don’t remember the thickness, I think it was copper tubing for a water line. It came in a coil and while it was sturdy I could bend it how I needed it. You can see a picture of it in my Warcraft stein picture. Just look at the alternate photo.

Thank you again, that cake by the way is stunning :)

This is what I used in my tutorial. Hope it helps :)
