1. The Stunning Unicorn Summer Cake

This stunning unicorn cake is perfect for any summer occasion; a birthday party, a graduation party or even a unicorn-themed wedding!

The flower decorations make this unicorn cake look so summery. This cake also has a cool, soothing look; I can imagine just looking at this cake would bring some cooling relief for a very hot day. The blue color on the lower part of the cake makes it look like it’s frozen.

The silver colored horn, eyes and ears bring even more unique coolness to this magical summer cake.

An easy way to create a silver colored horn and ears for the cake is to use a unicorn cake topper. Keep reading; we are introducing the recommended unicorn cake topper later on this post.

If you want silver colored eyes for the unicorn cake like in the picture, there is a tutorial for making silver icing on this blog.

2. The Easy Unicorn Cone Cake

This fun unicorn cone cake makes creating the unicorn horn easy; an ice cream cone works as a unicorn horn.

Any other decorations you choose to add to your unicorn cone cake is up to you. The ice cream cone horn takes care of the hardest part, creating the unicorn horn.

Of course, you still need to make ears for the unicorn, if you want a similar cake as in the picture above. You will find instructions for making the unicorn’s ears, eyes and mane on the video tutorial on this post.

3. The Viral Unicorn Cake

This magically viral unicorn cake is probably the most popular type of unicorn cake. It is easy to understand why; this cake is absolutely stunning!

Unicorn Cake with Unicorn Cake Topper

On the viral YouTube video below, Rosanna Pansino teaches you how to make a cake exactly like this one, including the batter. This video tutorial is very easy to follow. The written recipe for this cake is available on Rosanna Pansino’s blog. You can use the same base for other kind of unicorn cakes too.

You can create the unicorn’s mane with pastel colored icing following the instructions on the video. On this video tutorial, the unicorn’s eyes are piped with black icing. With black icing, you can make any kind of unicorn eyes you want; smiling eyes, sleepy eyes etc.

On the video, Rosanna Pansino also teaches you how to make the unicorn’s horn and ears. They might require some baking experience, though. I think I could follow this video until this part, but baking the unicorn horn and ears seems tricky.

If you’re not an experienced baker, there is an easier way to create the horn and ears for the unicorn cake.

We have unicorn cake topper decorations available on our unicorn store. The cake topper comes in different colors; also in gold, so you can create the same look as in the picture above.

Simply place the unicorn cake topper on top of your cake, and your unicorn cake has a horn and ears!

The unicorn cake topper also comes in silver color, so you can use it to create the silver colored horn of the first unicorn cake on this post.

4. The Colorful Rainbow Cake

This sweet pastel colored rainbow cake looks so pretty and care-free!

The icing around the cake can be made the same way as on Rosanna Pansino’s tutorial video above, but the key here is using icing with different colors to create the pastel colored stripes.

As for the decorations on top of the rainbow cake, we got you covered. You will find the rainbow cake topper, the cloud cake topper set and the balloon cake topper set on the product variations of our unicorn cake topper decorations.

Take a look at the unicorn cake gallery below and find your favorite unicorn cake! I’m especially impressed with the black unicorn cake. I think it’s refreshingly unique, and I kind of wish it tastes like licorice. Who says a unicorn cake has to be white?

How about the angry unicorn cake? The fierce look on the unicorn cake is so unexpected, it just makes you laugh.

And I love the creativity of the unicorn mermaid cake! It combines two different mythical creatures into one fabulous cake.

    I like that I stepped out of this article and clicked on the others too, because the whole website is so kawaii! I would love to try all and get everything! But just to look at, not really to eat, haha. Thank you for sharing the video too, it’s easy to follow, not to mention so much fun (she’s so bubbly). I am actually wondering how to get the perfect turquoise and purple color mix unique to that unicorn palette. Anyway, thank you for this very unique resource, I hope when I bake one I will have the courage to eat it! It’s just too cute to be eaten! Thanks for the good vibes! Cheers

      Thank you! A kawaii website is what I really wanted this to be, so I’m very happy you think so. ^^ 

      I know, all these unicorn cakes are kind of too cute to be eaten. But I have a sweet tooth (just like unicorns!), so I know I would eventually eat the unicorn cake, no matter how cute it is. 😊🍰

      Happy baking, and thank you for leaving a comment. Have a magical day! 🔮
