How do I force Solidworks to make a label tangent to a conical surface?

I am trying to apply label artwork to a slightly angled swept structure (think a donut with straight, but angled sides).

I have label artwork that has been designed to take into account the angle on the sides.  It is curved in a rough "C" shape.

How do I apply the artwork to the part as a decal properly?  It doesn't matter what mapping option I use the software wraps it around assuming it is straight artwork which bends in down.

As far as I can tell the label plan is not tangent to the face with the label but I have no idea how to make it so.

 

Any ideas? Is there something obvious I'm missing?
