I was recently on vacation and purchased a witch's hat nail. Does anyone have one of these and how do you use it? Thanks for any info.
I don't know what that is! Maybe other people are in the same boat! Can you take a picture of it or something?
Is it like a normal flower nail, but the flat part is cone shaped? I believe those are used to make lilies out of gumpaste. First you make the petals, then you layer them together in the cup, forming a flower right? I guess you would use royal icing or something to glue the petals together. Anyways, let it dry then carefully take it out and attach a stem and some leaves. I've never actually done it so I can't guarantee those directions. But I think I've seen what you're talking about and I'm pretty sure that's what it's used for.
I just googled, and found this info for you all,
