Accupuncture needles - help?

Hi everyone, i want to make a cake for my chiropractor who gave me free treatment when I needed it badly (too much cake decorating – lol). I want to make Kung Fu Panda with all the accupuncture needles in him, but cant think of what to use for the needles. I dont want to use anything innedible. Does anyone have any ideas?

What about Isomalt?

hiya what about using spaghetti painted silver or if you have a clay gun with modelling or flower paste use the disc for hair and leave them to dry hard :)

Thanks Tynka, I thought about isomalt, but I find it really hard to pipe fine lines with it. I also thought it might be a little painful to eat.

Hi MJH, I like the idea of using the extruder gun and letting the pieces dry. I hope they will be hard enough to push into the fondant. Thanks for the suggestion.

vermicelli noodles are thinner and paint with silver.

Ooooh that is a cool idea Joanne, thanks, I like it. ☺️

Hi everyone, just thought I would show you my cake. I ended up using spaghetti, painting it with silver and tipping the ends with red royal icing. So thanks for the suggestion. Here is my cake. Having trouble posting it…

I tried looking for the cake on your Facebook page but could not find the post. I’m curious and want to see how did you managed to make those needles. Please share the link.

Hi Jcandy, I just realised I had forgotten to post my picture on my page. So sorry, have posted it now. I used spaghetti to make the needles, painted them with silver and tipped them with red royal icing.
