I don't know about you, but I never use that Wilton tip saver case. It's been in my get-rid-of pile since my move. I came up with a good use for it though and thought I'd share. If you pop the two halves apart, it's great for drying tiny fondant flowers and for drying fondant leaves with a curled top. Just dust all the little holes with cornstarch on a pastry brush before you start.

Here's a picture of how well it works.

Cool. Thanks for showing. I have two that I have considered getting rid of for a while....(I hate getting rid of stuff like that cause you never know when it might come in handy for something else down the road lol) I had never thought of using it for flower making. Thanks again.

So glad someone thought of something useful for that thing. I thought I was the only person who thought it was completely useless. Thanks for sharing.

I have one of those blue and cream colored toolboxes with the tip holders in the tray. I've always just used that.

Oh that gives me idea for another use for it! You could use it to mold the tops for the Christmas ornament cupcakes. I did them freehand and a mold would have made it so much eaisier.
