Today is National Unicorn Day & Here’s A Cake To Go With It

. at . 2 comments

Today is National Unicorn Day. You’ve probably seen that unicorn cakes are in. Cake4Kids (C4K) volunteers have made these. Look at some of their ideas and ideas from Pinterest to get you started.
Most of the cakes I initially saw, had lots of flowers in lots of colors for the mane, and a gold horn with black, eyelash eyes on the side.

One of the cakes that exemplify this style. Cake made by a C4K volunteer.

Monochromatic flowers. Some bakers stuck to a monochromatic theme like this one for a boy. A C4Kids volunteer decorated this one.

Note the purple eyelashes and silver horn. Nice.

Instead of Flat Stanley, make a Flat Unicorn on a round cake.

This cake also has a lovely paisley design going around the cake.

Or decorate a sheet cake with a unicorn.

Love the purple horn.

Of course, sprinkles always make a great decorative accent.

A C4K volunteer made this birthday cake.

Horn ideas. You can make the horns out of fondant, Jello, modeling chocolate, a giant twist lollipop. or an ice cream cone. You can leave the cone plain or decorate it by frosting it and twirling it in sprinkles. EDITED to ADD – You can make a horn out of caramels, candy melts, and pretzel rods

These eyes are different than the norm and so cute.

Ear ideas. The ears can be made out of fondant, modeling chocolate, or marshmallows. You can also use marshmallows to make unicorn marshmallow pops.

This C4K cake has blue ears, horn, and eyelashes.

Cupcakes. Decorate each one as a unicorn with a gold candle for the horn and tiny flowers for hair. Or make a cupcake pull apart unicorn.

This pull apart has 21 cupcakes. It would be easy to add a few more to get to the usually required 2 dozen cupcakes.

And don’t forget about the board. It can look festive, as well.

This cake is baked and plated by a C4K volunteer.

There is a Cake4Kids sister duo that has made 6 unicorn cakes. Yep, 6. They now feel they have that technique down.
Like the idea of baking such a beauty, check out this video by Nerdy Nummies.
Feel too intimidated? Sacramento peeps, check out Jaynee Cakes. She has a class where you can learn how to make 3 types of unicorn cakes.
