I am putting a silhouette of a singer on top of my cake and I want to add some very small black gum paste music notes so they appear to be coming out of the mouth. I want to use something very thin and almost transparent so the notes will appear to be floating out of his mouth. As I strive for using only edible items I was thinking of using very thin uncooked spaghetti. Does anyone have a better suggestion or should I just resolve and use wire? Thanking you in advance for your suggestions!
I am thinking the uncooked noodle would crack possibly .. Have you thought about isomalt ?
Thanks. I don't have isomalt but you did give me the idea of maybe using spun sugar threads or maybe melting down hard candies.
How about using colored gelatin cut into shapes of notes? Like this:
They would be really light weight. Affix them to transparent wire, such as
They and the singer are not going to be eaten, are they? However, I understand your wanting to use only edible things on cakes, so maybe you don't want to use wire.
How about transparent noodles (cellophane noodles):
I have no idea how strong they would be, but the gelatin notes would weight almost nothing.
