A friend of mine has a daughter who will be turning 9 in a few months, and she saw some of my cakes, and really wants me to make her bday cake. So I start asking her about what she likes. Hannah M? NO, Barbir? NO. Spongebob? NO. She hates all cartoons, and anything disney or nickelodeon. So finally she tells me she wants something purple with white lillies on it. It seems little girlish! Any ideas to incorporate her wishes but still make it look like it's for a 9 year old?

Sounds like a typical 9 year old to me. Not wanting to be seen with the "baby/kiddy" cartoons and be seen as a sophisticated young lady.

A tiered cake (perhaps topsy turvy?) with lilies or other assorted flowers in various shades of purple & white, a number at the top with her name in stand up letters.

I saved this cake to my files without a name, but something like this might work. (Hope this image works!)

but flowers & purple obviously! I was kinda going for the feel of the cake.

Thanks for the ideas! I definately like the idea of making the cake whimsilcal! It really takes the "old lady" factor out of what I had in my head!
