I'm planning on *trying* to make some GP calla lilies for mothers day cakes. Both sets of directions I have found (Edna and Wilton) call for the plastic cone cups that you would find on a water cooler. Where the heck do I find these? The water cooler we have at work doesn't have a cup holder - we use glasses from the kitchen. Or is there a different item I can use?

Sorry to sound stupid - I just have no clue where to find those cups.

I have't seen those in a long time. Can you make small paper cones, like the piping bag cones you can make from parchment triangles?

You can use snow cone cups... restaurant supply place or call a water delivery service... or just make a cone out of freezer paper. Hope this helps.. I am going to try using a cone made out of freezer paper.. good luck..

You find freezer paper in the foil/plastic wrap aisle. I was totally unaware my grocery stores even carried until I went to look for it! In all the stores in my area (Chicago suburbs), it is on the bottom shelf.

HTH.

It should be near the Wax paper and Foil.. You can also make frosting cones out of freezer paper as well instead of using parchment paper. works great when you are in a pinch..

My husband found some water cooler cone cups @ Lowe's. They're made by Rubbermaid, and there's 200 per box.

I use the snow cups found at Wal-Mart.

If you do opt to use the freezer paper, it also is great to tape down and roll out fondant and gumpaste on. Then just dispose of it. I like it better than roll and cut mats.

I got a whole sleeve of paper cone cups (200)at Gorden Foods. They weren't very expensive either.(Solo cone water cups 4 oz.)
I made some out of typing paper before finding these that also worked.

The snow cone cups at walmart are usually in the seasonal aisle where they have the sno-cone syrup and all the summer plastic drink ware.

I just form my callas right around the centers and hang them upside down from a wire rack to dry... never used any kind of cone/form.
