  4. I never would have thought of using paperclips as the “balloon string”! Do you wash or tape off the other end of the paperclip that goes into the cupcake before putting it in?

  11. Hi Kelly,

    I’d recommend snipping off the end of a straw (about 1cm or so) and putting a bit of flower paste in there then popping the paper clip ends in and letting the flower paste set hard.
    Tape would not be food safe and metal paper clips should definitely not come into contact with anything you’re going to eat.x

  12. This idea is so cute! I love it.

  13. Using paperclips is absolutely brilliant! I did something similar (but with fall leaves and butterflies and snowflakes–not all on the same cupcake ;-) ) and to get around the food safety issue, I attached my wire to the top of a toothpick. The food-safe toothpick was the only thing actually touching the food. Here’s the link, in case you’d like to see exactly how I dealt with the issue. http://tikkido.com/node/886
