Unicorn Cake / Tropical Unicorn Cake

In 2016 when Jenna Rae made the first unicorn cake, bakers picked it from there and since then, unicorn cakes has been very common and comes in different designs ,shapes sizes and colours.

My unicorn Cake is very exotic , l decided to take it to the savannah. My choices of colours is typically a sub- Saharan touch.

When Ken and l where making this cake , l thought of Wendy who will always tell me that “mom let no one ever tell you that you are not enough because you are a unicorn ” smiling right now . Everyone has his unicorn. Who is your unicorn ? Your perfection , your Mr right , your wifey, your dream girl…

The unicorn we made is customised, it looks like no other just the way we are. Find your own unicorn . Spot her/ him and track her down . If you haven’t find yours it will happen with time .

The hardest part of this cake was the horn, it wasn’t easy to mould the horn with fondant. I Moulded mine and l failed, Ken tried and succeeded. He did a great job.

Let’s get started;
