How to Use Wilton Lily Nail Set to Make Easy Appetizer Garnish from Parmesan

Wilton lily nail set to make flowers from parmesan cheese. Flowers I use to decorate cheese and crackers platter, meat and cheese platter or other appetizers. It cost a few dollars but when you try to make a flower from cheese, it is priceless! With the set, we can make our flower so detailed and beautiful.

Wilton’s lily nail set comes 4 pack set – 8 pieces. I use only 3 larger sizes of nails.

We need:

  1. Lily nails set
  2. Shredded parmesan cheese
  3. Baking paper
  4. Foil
  5. Potato to make a holder
  6. 0.5″ fruit corer

  1. Potato works perfectly to hold our lily nail! I wash it and dry with paper towel. Cut off the bottom, so it does not roll over. Cover potato and both nails with foil.

2. I use a cookies cutter to shape cheese*. We can sprinkle with cheddar cheese and it will be a beautiful addition to our flower.  Place parmesan cheese on baking paper and decorate as desire.

*If you don’t have cookie cutter, we can use other technique I described here ⇒ Parmesan Cheese Basket and Butterfly Garnish

3. Bake 2-3 minutes 400ºF (very convenient to use a toaster oven) or you can use a skillet on a stove as well. I shaped flower petals with knife tip when cheese melted.

4. Let cool a few seconds and place on the nail and shape with the top nail.

Tips from Gala’s kitchen

1. To make different petals of flowers we can use different sizes and shapes shredders for cheese.

2. We can use tiny pieces parsley or other herbs to decorate flowers.
