Pink flamingo dessert ideas
Pink flamingos are such a versatile theme that a pink flamingo dessert would be perfect for a theme party, a birthday party, or even a wedding. It’s a great go-along for the most kitsch theme and also for Alice in Wonderland parties. It is the perfect dessert to serve on Pink Flamingo Day.
Depending on your party needs, you might choose to make a pink flamingo cake, cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, or pink flamingo shaped candy.
Get creative with your pink flamingo cake
If you feel creative, you can make a variety of unique pink flamingo cake designs.
- Use a square or rectangular cake as the base, frost in greens, browns, and blues, and use pink flamingo cupcake picks to create a flamingo wetland!
- Make the body of the flamingo from a football-shaped pan, then create the head and neck from fondant.
- Use the Wilton Swan Cake Pan to make a flamingo-shaped cake. Decorate it with pink icing instead of white and add black flamingo-type markings.
- A cake with a pair of flamingo toppers would be perfect for a tropical wedding.

Pink flamingo cake pops and cupcakes
With pink flamingo cake pops and cupcakes, you can be as easy or as creative as you like. You can go basic and simply add a pink flamingo pick to the top of each cake pop. If you feel really creative, you can even make the cake pops into pink flamingos! Dip a pretzel stick into melted pink candy melts for the neck, then create the head from a pink jelly bean and a banana candy with some black icing on the tip of the beak. Wings can be shaped from pink fondant.
Pink flamingo cookies
Flamingo shaped cookies are easy to make with a flamingo cookie cutter. Decorate your cookies with pink icing and detail them with some black icing for an added touch.
It’s easy to make pink flamingo candy!
If you have never made candy before, you don’t know how easy it is. Just melt the candy melts in the microwave and pour into the molds, covering the stick completely. For an added decorative touch, put some nonpareils in the mold first.
