How To Make A Unicorn Cake With A Buttercream Mane
We made this magical unicorn cake using the Wilton 'I Taught Myself Buttercream Flowers' kit. It contains five piping nozzles perfect for creating different shapes and sizes in your buttercream for a textured mane, a flower nail, and 12 disposable piping bags.
1. Bake two 8in round cakes, layering with buttercream to approximately 7 inches tall. Cover in buttercream, place on a cake board then cover with white Sattina sugarpaste, trimming off any excess icing around the bottom. Use a cake smoother to ensure your cake has a smooth professional appearance.
2. Create two ears using white modelling paste and pink for the inner ears. Gently curve the ears by placing them over a rolling pin and leaving overnight to harden. Once they can stand up on their own, attach the ears to your cake using edible glue.
