Put them in a straw? dip the ends that will go in the cake in food safe wax??? (<----that one was a total guess....there has to be such a thing as food safe wax right?? icon_biggrin.gif) Make a ball of fondant and stick them in that?

Someone did this once with rice paper. Search google for edible feather cake...it was a silver/white tiered cake...stunning, and it had a link to her blog.

Sorry I don't have the link, but I made the feathers once, easy, but time consuming. She used scissors, cut out a feather shape out of rice paper, carefully cut the veins really thin strips and close together, glue (pastry gel) a wire to the back and slightly steam and then dust with pearl dusts. If you steam too much they melt.
