I did a search and found some: http://www.dianescakesandmore.com/decorations/daisies.php but my goodness, look at that price!

Have you tried making them out of fondant? They're thin enough that they dry nice and hard. They're the easiest to make...if you have the Wilton cutters, it's better to turn the cutter over and smooth your hands over it before you pop the daisy out, that way you get nice smooth edges. Use the ball tool and work from the end of the petal in toward the center. I use a silicone mini muffin pan to dry my daisies. To make the bumpy center, use a star tip and just make indentations in the fondant.

I was wondering if you looked at the site I pm'd you about. Hope you found something that helps. I have trouble with daisies too. Don't know why since I can do other flowers just fine. I need to see a visual tutorial I think.
