    My other unicorn cake:
    Yet another cake trend has taken over the internet.

    This time, it's the UNICORN (with no noses) cake trend! I don't understand the lack of facial features besides eyes, but hey, who am I to argue with the internet.

    This unicorn cake encompasses everything fun about unicorns- rainbow, glitter and a little magic.

    Perfect for a birthday party!

    How to Make a Rainbow Unicorn Cake Recipe
    -6 layers 8" round cake, colored red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple
    -6 layers 6" round cake, colored red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple
    -Buttercream colored red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple and white
    -Yellow gum paste
    -Rolkem Super Gold powder
    -Fondant red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, black and white
    -Isomalt nibs red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple

    1.Level, stack and cover each size of cakes in white buttercream, to create 2 stacks of cakes.

    Place 8" cake stack on a large cake drum, and the 6" cake stack on a 6" cake board.
    2.Place each color of buttercream into piping bags fitted with 104 tips.

    With the largest size of tip against the cake, start at the bottom and zig zag up the cake, about an inch in width.

    Repeat with all 6 colors, until the cake has been completely covered.

    Place into the fridge while working on the next steps.


    Roll out two equal portions of yellow gumpaste into long cones and twist both together to form a horn.

    Insert a dowel into the end of the horn and set aside to dry.


    Draw or print out a wing template, and using a fondant extruder fitted with the small round disc opening, trace the wing with yellow gum paste.

    Flip the image, and trace again for the matching wing on the other side.

    Allow gum paste to harden completely.

    5.Melt isomalt nibs in the microwave or oven.

    Pour each color into a separate sections of the wings.

    Allow isomalt to cool and harden completley before moving.

    Once cool, attach skewers to the wings with clear isomalt.

    6.Mix a small amount of rolkem dust with a few drops of vodka, and paint the yellow gum paste sections of the wings with a fine paint brush and the unicorn horn.

    Allow to dry before touching.

    Cut out eyes, mane and ears for the unicorn and apply to the 6" cake with a small dab of water.


    Stack 6" cake on top of the 8" cake.

    Insert the isomalt wings onto the sides of the cake.

    Insert the horn on the top of the cake.

    9.Cake is best consumed within 2-3 days and should be kept in the fridge.
