Is this what you are looking for? It looks similar to making daisy's.

PM the person who made the cake if you need more instruction.

Here found another one. Scroll to the bottom of the page, she made fondant zinnia's on cupcakes:

It just looks like a small petal cutter was used and the petals circled around a few times with a few stamens put into the center.

It seems that is similar to a daisy, with just more rows of flower petals.You know that there are simple Zinnias which look like daisies. The larger ones have more rows of petals . I am sorry to be so repetitive . hope this link helps.

This is the closest to what I was looking to do. I want it to be as realistic as possible. But before I saw this post I just started playing around and figured out a way to make them. I've attached a pic of my first attempt.
