We recently celebrated my daughter’s 7th birthday. Oh how time flies! Feels like yesterday she was just a little baby… now she’s 7 going on 17!

When I asked her what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday, she said, “A unicorn cake, mama!” …so of course I had to! This was my first time making a unicorn cake and I wasn’t completely sure what I was doing, but we did it, ya’ll! And it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be… If I could do it, so can you!

  • Prep chocolate cake as instructed and pour evenly into two greased cake pans, lined with parchment paper. (Note: I ended up only using one half of the chocolate cake. Saved the other for a later dessert!)
  • Prep vanilla cake as instructed and add ube concentrate. Pour batter evenly into the two other greased cake pans, lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake cakes for 20 mins at 350 degrees F, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow cakes too cool completely before frosting.
Bald Unicorn?! Def needs some unicorn hair!
  • To make the frosting, add cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar into electric stand mixer and let it do it’s thang for like 3 mins!
  • Stop mixer and scrape down sides using a spatula and continue mixing until well combined… maybe another 2 mins or so?
  • Divide the frosting into 2 separate bowls.
  • In one bowl, add pink food coloring and mix.
  • In othe other bowl, add blue food coloring and mix.
  • Spoon your frosting into 2 decorating bags and frost as you like!
  • I alternated using pink and blue frosting on the outside of the cake and when I smoothed it out, it gave it this cool marble effect… and turned the cake purple! I ain’t mad about it at all.
  • For the Unicorn hair, I used tip #19 to get the pretty pink “hair” effect going on.
Happy 7th Birthday, Juju!
