Unicorn Birthday Cup Cake Recipe...

15 Jun 2018

Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would share with you my recipe for these cute little unicorn cupcakes. Now I'm loving unicorns and anything multi coloured at the moment and thought I would make these for my sisters friends daughters birthday. This recipe made around 8 cupcakes...

-160g butter 
-160g caster sugar
-160g self raising flour
- 2 eggs 
- Betty Crocker Vanilla butter cream
- Pink food colouring 
-Blue food colouring 
-Yellow food colouring 
-Roll out icing 

  1. Begin by adding the butter and sugar to a bowl and cream together.
  2. Once the butter is lighter in colour and lighter in texture, add the two eggs and whisk again.
  3. Now add the flour to the mixture and fold in. 
  4. Pop the cake mixture into the cupcake cases and bake for around 10-15 minutes at gas mark 6/ 200 degrees c.
  5. Once the cakes are golden brown on top, leave to rest until they are cool.
  6. Whilst the cakes are cooling, split the buttercream into 3 separate bowls and add the 3 food colours to the mixtures.
  7. Make sure the colours are bright as when they are mixed together, the colours can fade.
  8. Add small teaspoons on the different coloured icing, one by one into a piping bag, so the colours merge together.
  9. Once the cakes are cool, pipe around the perimeter of the cake and then on into the center. 
  10. As for the horn and ears, take a small amount of roll out icing and shape into a long thin sausage. 
  11. Then wrap the sausage up to create a horn shape that is tapered at the end.
  12. As for the ears, roll into balls and then pinch the end .
  13. Using edible gold shimmer glitter, add a little water and paint this onto the horn and on the small part of the ear.
  14. Let these dry and then pop them on top of the cake.
  15. Sprinkle a little bit of glitter over the top of the cupcakes and then you have your Unicorn cupcakes.
