I recently purchased the blossom set but I can't get it to hold the cone shape.

See SugarShack's cake http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_28557.html to see what I'm looking for.

Thanks,

This is done with the lily nail...They are probably royal icing flowers.You learn to make these in Wiltons course 2 I think..one of the courses anyways!!!

These are made with a five petal cutter and a silicon flower press. If you have any flower former or just left over cleaned egg cartons, just set each individual flower in the individual egg cups and let them dry and they will hold their shape. Then you can also put your petal dust on them while they are setting in the egg carton.

Yeah..I see what you mean now....All4show is correct..but you can also use the lily nail too.

I guess I always make a ton of them at a time so I find it more practical for me to use the egg cartons. Practical = Cheaper. That's me; a penny pincher.

You can also do this: take a small piece of foil and lay it in the former, then press the top on. take that piece of foil out the former and lay on something like crinkled foil... anything to support it upright. Then after you make the flowers and press them in the 2 sided former, transfer the flower to the foil "former" and let it dry there. It will then dry in the shape of the silicone former.

I hope that made sense.

I love using the small kiss former to shape these. It shapes them perfectly....there are several cavities on a sheet, too.

JennoferMI - care to elaborate on these Kiss Formers. Is it a chocolate kiss mold?

This is a former mold. They look like little hersey kisses. PM me if you want to know where you can get it. 3.00 each.
