Start out with a round, buttercream frosted cake made of whatever cake flavor you prefer. The buttercream frosting should be plain white/cream colored. Next, you will need
Materials and supplies:
- Wooden skewer
- Caramel-colored, white, pastel (color of your choice) and black fondant
- Edible paint (we recommend gold, but you can use whatever color you want your unicorn horn to be)!
- Pink buttercream
- Rose piping tip (the 855 tip by Ateco is recommended)
- Disposable piping bag
- Large rose petal cutters and a smaller tear or raindrop shaped cutter
- Fondant rolling pin
- Candy, cookies, meringue drops, etc
- Cake dummy or small Styrofoam block
- Cake smoother (optional)
Place the skewer into the cake dummy or Styrofoam block to determine how long you want the unicorn horn to be. Roll out your caramel colored fondant into a thin log that is thinner at one end. Twist your fondant rope around the skewer gently but tightly until you reach the top of the skewer. Next, use your edible paint to color the horn in the color of your choice. Roll out your pastel fondant to create the ears by using the tear/raindrop shaped cutter. Roll out the white fondant and use the large rose petal cutters to create two white ears.Use a veining tool to create indentations in the center of the ears and created a slightly rounded, ear-like shape. Use your black fondant rolled into thin, tapered logs to create V-shaped eyes. Use your rose tip to pipe the unicorn’s mane onto the cake around one edge and down the side. We recommend creating small rosettes. Now, add some sprinkles such as hearts or stars to your unicorn’s mane. Push the skewer horn down in the middle of the cake and decorate around it with candies, treats, meringue drops, etc. Place the fondant ears near the horn and the V-shaped eyes on the side of the cake.
