The Golden Unicorn Cake

Nothing beats getting to ride on a cake trend – and lucky for me I got a request for a unicorn cake because these are so super cute! I see these all the time on Instagram and finally got my opportunity to make one!

Hair of white chocolate buttercream, horn, ears and eyes done with fondant. The gold was done using a mix of Rolkem Supers gold lustre dust and alcohol in order to make a paint that evaporates and dries quickly. I LOVE painting metallic on fondant, it always looks so amazing!

I used Wilton tip 1M in order to pip the hair. For where I piped a kiss using that tip, I added a sugar pearl to it. I think it adds a little bit of something extra special to the cake along with the gold painted elements. Definitely a special cake for a special birthday girl 🙂
