I'm hoping someone has a brilliant idea for stamen substitutes for some royal icing lilies I've been working on...

I really hate using anything on my cakes that's not edible...and for my birthday cake tomorrow, I've created a bunch of pink-and-white lilies. I'd really rather not use the standard stamens, but for something like a lily I'm at a loss as to how to fake it...I mean, for something like a petunia, I can just do some pull-outs in stiff royal, but the lily stamen is so top heavy!

Even if it's not something I can adapt for this particular project due to lack of supplies, any ideas for the future??

I have heard of people using really thin spaghetti noodles. You could even dye them if you need to. Hope this helps!
