Default How to make longer spikes not floppy?

http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php...574283&theater

here is a pic of what I am taking about. It doesn't look like there is a base bow underneath? I made one, and I really didn't want to put a bow underneath. Because it didn't really show. But my spikes were too floppy. Is there a way to do it. I know you try shorter, but they then don't show.

I am thinking there may be the way you tie them? Thanks.

I will have to check your etsy. I didn't think of starching and baking. I haven't really done that.
