Thank you to everyone for your replies. I have tried googling the onion grass but am having no luck as I live in England :(

 

I will keep trying though, somewhere must sell it.

 

Thanks again everyone :)

Thanks Sooziecake and Applegumpam for your help. I have just got home from work so havn't had a chance to search yet.

 

I went to my local dressmaking and hobby shop on the way home and found some leaves that look very similar to what I wanted so I am going to

see if they are what I need otherwise I will try emailing the cake shop and will look on the web tonight.

 

Do you think I should put them inside straws and treat them the same as if I were placing wires in my cake?

 

Sorry to be a pain but I am still learning even now :)

These seem a good price. My local cake shopsupplies them so if you have one near tey them too.  You should put them in either a straw or posy pick, not directly in a cake. Just push a little sugar or flowerpaste in first to keep them upright and packed.

I have just looked at these and it is exactly what I wanted, I'm going to order them now.

 

Thank you so much :))))
