A few weekends ago my daughter had a party for her 6th birthday (which is actually today!). We bought the cake, a rather spectacular PJ Masks one, but wanted some special cupcakes to share with friends who were coming back for a playdate after the party.
When I was shopping in Lakeland I spotted this rather fabulous Make your Own Unicorn Cupcake Kit. It was pretty pricey for a box of cake mix – but my daughter loves unicorns – so I bought it.
The kit contained everything needed to make and decorate the cupcakes – cake mix, icing, sprinkles and an icing pen.
Whilst my daughter was out I made the cupcakes with my son. We set them aside and made the unicorn ears from the white icing. There was a handy template on the side of the box.
Then we made the unicorn horns using the pink and white icing. This was slightly harder and involved making thin sausages with the icing and twisting the pink and white together. My son enjoyed chopping them into small pieces and slightly squashing one end to make a horn shape.
When the cakes had cooled down we added the buttercream and followed the picture on the box to make the unicorn cupcakes – adding the little ears, the unicorn horn, rainbow sprinkles and the (time-consuming) unicorn horns.
My daughter loved her unicorn cakes. The packet made 6 so they barely lasted 5 minutes. I’d definitely make these again but probably use ingredients at home to make them cheaper and make a lot more than 6!
