These unicorn cupcakes are the perfect addition to a unicorn party.
It would seem that wherever you turn these days, there are unicorns. Clothing, accessories, bags, EVERYTHING. They are a huge hit at our house for sure. I mean, I’ve been know to have a few unicorn headbands myself 🙂
First, we all know that when it comes to baked good, it has to be easy otherwise, its going to come out crazy.
I used a funfetti box cake and made the cupcakes in ice cream cones. If you’re wondering how to do this, head to this post for instructions. While those are cooking, its time to make the unicorn horn.
Next, I found these amaze-balls spiked ice cube trays. I have few other really fun things I’m going to show you that you can make out of these too. GET THEM! They are rad and I now only take my ice in spikes 🙂
I melted the turquoise chocolate in the microwave just 30 seconds and stir. Spray the ice cube trays with cooking spray, and then spoon the chocolate into the spikes. Place the tray in the freezer for 15 minutes and then pop them out.
Once you have your cupcakes and unicorn horn, its time to decorate. I do not know why this is the case, but when it comes to decorating cakes, unless its a simple sprinkle cake, I lack cake decorating gene. Then I found this little wonder! The Color Swirl Kit. This little tool, makes it super easy to make these unicorn beauties look like you are professional and be as cake decorating challenged as I do. Simply scoop a cup of white frosting into a bowl and add some food coloring gel. Once you have the three colors you want to use, then scoop each into a separate bag from the kit.
Swirl your frosting onto the cupcakes, and then add your chocolate horn. BOOM!
