I'm doing a pink two tiered birthday cake for a 12 year old girl. I'm trying to think of a big flower that would be cute on it and I'm drawing blanks! Any suggestions?

How about doing a quilled flower? Like this:

Search for quilling in the galleries and there are lots of wonderful examples. Good luck!

You'd probably want whimsical, uncomplicated, fun colored, fantasy flowers.

I asked my 12 year old daughter what kind of flowers girls her age would want on a cake and she said "hippie style" daisies and fun flower roses (in the 2003 wilton yearbook and online). Also hot pink or bubble gum pink would be preferable over other shades of pink such as mauve. Using bright accent colors such as lime green are considered "cool".

scroll down to" Ah-Choo" brides. its the first picture that I want you to see. The large orange flower at the top of the bouquet. I just made a cake with this flower and the young girls LOVED it! you could do it in any color you wanted and it would be beautiful!

Here is a similar flower that I made.
