How to Make EASY BAMBOO STICKS with Pastillage

In this Yeners Cake Tip, I show you a very simple way to make realistic looking bamboo sticks that can be used for many purposes related to oriental themed wedding cakes and birthday cakes. In fact I even used them on my own wedding cake!

I show you how to assemble a small bamboo basket with a handle that can be filled and decorated with sugar fruits or sugar flowers etc.

You can use these bamboo sticks to make centerpieces, toppers, as decorations around the cake and much more!
