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. We can make parmesan flowers without this set, just make a ball from foil or use to shape shot glass. This set just makes so much easy the task.

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 used a cookies cutter to shape cheese. We can sprinkle with cheddar cheese and it will be a beautiful touch to our flower.  Place parmesan cheese on baking paper and decorate as desired.

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.
