I've been using non-edible stamens, and I want to know what you use in order to make them edible.

I use dry vermicelli and dye it with some food coloring. Sometimes I stick cormeal to it to make "pollen."

I use royal icing, but the dry vermicilli sounds like a great idea!

i used non-edible stamens for the first time yesterday and while I was making them I was thinking what a terrible idea that is!!! I cant imagine trying to explain they are not edible to my family who thinks everything on a cake should be eaten!!!! Or worrying about a kid eating them. Im so glad you started this thread!!! Can you expand on how you use the royal icing and the dry vermicilli sounds ? thanks

THANK YOU!! because I try to make them from fondant/gumpaste and have to make dozens to get ONE to work. LOL and glueing them is HARD!

I use dried vermicelli too!! Or spagettini, or whatever I have on hand. Instead of dying them, I dip in coloured chocolate. I figured if someone ended up eating them, they'd never know it was uncooked pasta if it was chocolate covered! I used to use chow mein noodles, but I can no longer find the really skinny ones anymore!

I couldn't find where this post was moved to, and just located it. I will try that dipped in chocolate. Great idea! thanks!
