I am doing a wedding cake for a coworker. I do lots of kids cakes but this is only the 2nd wedding cake and she wants a specific texture. I can't figure out how to attach the pic but found a link to something similar, if you can imagine it upside down. Lol. It looks like this, but the flat shelf part of the texture is facing up, if that makes sense. I can't seem to find the right texture tool. Any suggestions or how to links would be great

It looks like a comb that would be similar to this (the top side of the comb in the picture), except this one has smaller "teeth" than the one you need. It would give the same texture though.

You're right it does look life the right shape. I have the wilton ones and a couple others but not getting what I need. I just found this,  so I may be making what I need like she did

What it looks like to me is a rose peddle tip with it reversed so that the fat end is down and the narrow end is what is attaching the icing to the cake. You would of course reverse the tip to get what you wanted, but try that I think you will find that that will work. You are going to have to have steady hands to get it perfect.
