i can not remember the name of the things you put the stem in to put it in the cake..can anyone help me out
In the UK, we call them a 'posy pick'.
Posy picks or flower spikes.
They are called flower spikes or picks. I make my own by cutting straws and melting the ends of one side together. Use a bubble tea straw for the really big stems. HTH
THANKS!!! anyone know where i can get them in bulk..all i can find is 12 packs
i was thinking about the using straws.. but the melting the sides together are ok to stick into a cake??
I would think so. How do you think they got the plastic into a straw shape in the first place?? I assume they melted the plastic and poured it into some sort of mold. I would just be careful not to breathe any of the fumes.
I've also read that people will stuff some fondant in the hole of the straw to seal it off, and some will pipe candy melts into the bottom.
Thanks for the great ideas. Always looking for a way to save $$
