I am going to attempt cake pop roses this weekend, my first experience with modelling chocolate - very excited to do it, but not sure what to use for stems - I have lollipop sticks, but they are white...I can probably dye them green with food color, but was wondering if anyone has better ideas....

Thanks!

How about wrapping them w/green floral tape?

Recently I have been experimenting with making cake pop rosebuds. For the stems, I used florist tape on lollipop sticks at first, then I had some left over stems that were on some silk roses I used for a wedding bouquet. I found I was able to slide the lollipop down in the hollow stems. Basically, you may just want to make your stems from gum-paste by brushing the lollipop stick with piping gel or gum-paste glue, then just roll the lollipop stick in green tinted gum-paste. I hope this make sense. That's my next adventure.
