Unicorn Cake!

Have you ever made a Unicorn Cake? Well it sure is delicious! Today you're going to learn the steps to create an awesome cake. The cake I chose to use on the inside was the chocolate sponge cake. 

Sponge Cake Ingredients:
- 4 large eggs (room temperature)
- ½ cup + 1 ½ tablespoon (120 grams) granulated sugar
- 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon (100 grams) all-purpose flour
- 3 table spoons (20 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder

Items for decorating:
    White, light pink, light blue, light purple buttercream frosting
    - Black food colouring/edible paint
    White fondant
    - 3 Lollipop sticks
    - Paint brushes (optional)
    - Teardrop cookie cutters (optional)

    • Sponge Cake recipe:
    1. Take the eggs out from the fridge few mins before starting.

    2. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C (350 degrees F).

    3. Prepare baking pan with parchment paper.

    4. Put the eggs and sugar in a bowl.

    5. Beat the eggs until very fluffy and pale yellow. (If you have a stand mixer, mix about 15 minutes on medium/high speed).

    6. Slowly add the cocoa powder and flour on top of the egg mixture, a little at a time, and fold it carefully with a wooden spoon.

    7. Pour the batter into your pan. Don't smooth the top or bang the pan on the counter.

    8. Bake for 40 minutes and don't open the oven for the first 20 minutes.

    Turn the oven off but leave the chocolate sponge cake inside for 10 mins. Then let cool for another 10 mins outside the oven, loosen the edges and then flip the cake upside down (without the pan) to cool completely.


    • spread buttercream frosting all around the cake
    • cover the cake with white fondant
    • use the 3 lollipop sticks for the ears and horn of the unicorn
    • create ears (use tear drop cookie cutters for ears) and horn with white fondant
    • use the lollipop sticks to stick them in
    • use the light pink, blue and purple buttercream frosting for the mane of the unicorn (alternate between the colours)
    • you can paint the horn any colour or leave it white
    • finally use your paint brushes to draw some eyes, using the black food colouring

    I really enjoyed creating this cake and I hope you will too!
