I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to make edible fish hooks. I tried making them out of chocolate but they break very easily. I just can't think of any thing I can use that will hold it's shape besides fondant.
maybe if you could find mini candy canes? cover them in chocolate, or whatever. it may not go with cake flavor but it will be edible. :)
yortma that is brilliant!
ditto, doramoreno -- you're a rock star, yortma
Thank you, this is one to add to my idea list! Love it!
Love the spaghetti idea! That is brilliant and looks awesome! I would probably make the fish hooks out of gumpaste or a combo of gumpaste and fondant. Won't taste fantastic, but will be edible.
You didn't mention how big or small, but this is how I made antennas for a ladybug once. Cook spaghetti until flexible. bend into shape. Let dry, and it will get hard again. Paint with food color if desred. You could probably find just about any thickness of pasta that would work for you. HTH
yortma, when you paint them with food coloring, how do you go about doing so? I've never even thought of using spaghetti like that before!
I wonder if you painted the pasta in a combo of food color and powdered sugar if you would get something more candy tasting. But then again my daughter loves raw crunchy pasta. Ladybug looks incredible!
I would also like to know how you painted them with food colouring without it sliding off. That is such a great idea. thankyou so much for sharing!
Thanks everyone! I believe I just painted on Wilton black color straight out of the jar. It's also possible I dipped it into my airbrush color. (It was a while ago). Either way, it was plain old coloring.
