Hi everyone! I'm donating a cake to a hospital for their holiday party. I want to do a box of ornaments with the balls peaking out of the box. I want to pack the area around the balls with something that looks like packaging straw. anyone know how to make this easily?

Thanks!
Christy

Hmm, do you think running it on a pasta machine (linguine/fettuccine attachment) would work? Not sure if it would give the same effect.

In a cake contest I was in one women made a scarecrow and cut fondant "Noodles" so to speak to use as her straw. But the edible grass would be sort of similar. I wish I could remember the ladies name, so I could give her her credit. It was a really nice cake. It almost looked like she might have run it through a pasta machine.
