Start with the main part of the Unicorn cake: the magical Unicorn horn! First, push a pointy wooden stick into the cake dummy to make the horn. The length of the stick will decide how tall the horn is.

Begin to roll a string of colored-fondant.

Next, you have to wind the string around the wooden stick all the way to the top.

After that, paint the Unicorn horn with edible glitter gold or another color of your choices like silver, pink or even rainbow colors!


In order to make perfect ears, you have to roll the white and colored fondant. Then use the petal-shaped fondant cutter to cut two white big ears and two colored small ones from your white and colored fondant.

Take the veining tool and push the centers of the ears as in the picture. The leave them to solidify anywhere suitable.


Next, importantly, roll out two short and thin strings of black fondant, fold them in half as shown in the picture to form V shape. Then leave them aside and wait for them to solidify before putting on the cake.


Top off a piping pack fitted with a rose piping tip with buttercream.

Pipe buttercream roses around the cake’s edge and down one side to make the mane. You can choose any colors you like as long as you remember to leave some space for cookies or macarons decor on the cake.


Put a few white sprinkles on top of it.

We chose the white star for our Unicorn cake decoration, but let your imagination wander by using rainbow confetti or whatever you feel it suitable! Remember to sprinkle some edible sparkle too!


Now, insert the horn by slowly pushing the wooden stick and the horn right into the center of the cake.

Actually, if you have enough time for the horn to solidify, you can take out the wooden stick and use buttercream as glue to stick the horn onto the cake.


Time for other magical factors: Put some glitter, candies, macarons or shaped cookies on the cake for embellishment.

We decorated the cake with vanilla macarons and mint-colored cream with gold painted star cookies. Just put the cake on the stand and voila, here we are!
