I am making a cake for a family friend for Saturday. It's going to be an 8 inch square pillow (or at least it is starting out that size) I want to make a crown and possibly some shoes for the top but I wanted to try my hand at some flowers to go around the bottom so it doesn't look empty, and also because its going to be at a summer party.. I just wondered if anyone could tell me any flowers which are simple yet colourful and elegant.(the person I'm making for is your kind of stereotypical no kids and designer shoes type people, her friends actually nicknamed her queenie, hence the crown) I'm going to do my cushion white so I'd like really brightly coloured flowers really. She likes lilies but they seem really quite complicated on the tutorial page on the how do I forum. TIA

Calla lilies are pretty easy and you can do them fairly quickly (in time for a Saturday cake). While not as elegant, daisies are very simple and they would be very pretty for a summer party.

I agree calla lilies are pretty simple, and you can just use a heart cutter so you don't need to buy anything special for it.

Anemone's are pretty simple too, those were the first flowers I made, you just need a circle cutter for those....

Thank you for your suggestions! I'm going to have a go at making some tonight and see how they go!
