That would work.   You can also use gumpaste to make them.  I did sesame seeds with gumpaste for a hamburger.  It was a bit time consuming but they dried hard.  Once you make the needles and they get dry you can insert them in the cactus.

AThank you for your suggestion. I also heard that I could use royal icing. This will probably be faster and less time consuming, hopefully! :)

I am not a royal icing user so that never comes into mind.  But definitely that would work and less time consuming.

 

You gave me now a good idea for future use.  :grin:
