I really can't visualize the item you're talking about--can you post a pic?? Maybe a link to the company's description of the item?? What did the company you bought it from call it?? Where you supposed to buy the nail part separately??

Is it maybe a net nail, for making royal icing filigree pieces?

i don't know it's about 2 inches long with threads about 1/2 way down flat on the bottom of the cup about 1/2 inch from flat bottom and the top edge has a slight roll around the top, it looks like i could use it for a flower nail it just doesn't have a tip to push down the foil, but i'm wondering if it's deep enough for the flowers does that help lol thanks

You have to post a pic. Is it a cupcake holder for a flower nail?

yes it IS a lily nail like the 2 piece plastic ones Wilton sells

http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?sku=403-9444

except -- this is only the bottom

the ribbing on the shaft is to make it easier to hold, especially with messy fingers.

it's pointed (just like a normal flower nail) so it is easy to push into a block of foam.

it's only the bottom half, since they figure you can mush the foil in by hand

Its a rose nail, according to my local cake supply shop, you just make the rose on it and take it off with the scissors. I have never tried it but she swears by it.....try it and let us know how great it is!!! Beats making the mound, so many of my students have a hard time making the mound for the rose.

If you took Class Three, with the Wilton course, you should have gotten lilly nails, in various sizes in your kit I still have mine
