I'm trying to make little tulips with stems stand upright on top of a cupcake. I don't want to use any wires or anything inedible. How can I do that?

Have you tried spaghetti?

You could make it out of gumpaste. Make sure it has plenty of time to dry.

Yikes, it's for tomorrow icon_sad.gif

I will try the spaghetti. That seems very fragile to me though, has anyone tried it?

Yes, I have; not my favorite but it works for many. I like toothpicks but they aren't edible icon_smile.gif

Pretzel sticks or rods covered in fondant or buttercream.
