Unicorn birthday cakes have arrived and in a word, they’re magical!

You may remember when sweetie-filled pinata cakes first burst onto the scene (sometimes, literally) and caused a huge shift in the birthday cake game. While these cakes are still going great guns, social media is in overdrive about a new cake design - this time it's all about unicorns.

You can use almost any cake recipe you like for this as it’s all about the way in which you ice it.

The unicorn obsession has been climbing steadily over the past year, and we may now have reached 'peak unicorn' with the arrival of incredibly creative bakes.

Capturing all things magical in impressively artful icing, the cakes range from large iced sponges to buttercream topped cupcakes, all crowned with a sparkling horn.

Keen to get involved in the magic? You can use almost any cake recipe you like for this - classic jam sponge, chocolate cream sponge, orange cake - as it’s all about the way in which you ice it.

Standby for all the unicorn cake inspiration you can handle...
