When I started Todays Creative Food my goal has always been to design cakes and other goodies that a home baker can make.
I want to show people that they can make their cake look like it was professionally made.
One way to do this is to use colorful ingredients like candy, instead of mixing many color of frosting which can be very time consuming and messy.
I designed and created this cake for Harley who turned four years old. She loves Unicorns so I knew she would love this simple but colorful cake.
Watch how fun and easy it was to make.
NOTE: If you do not have time to make the fondant horn or ears, you can frost a ice cream cone and add sprinkles for the horn and cut large marshmallow in half to make the ears.
