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!

Unicorn Summer Cake

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 in 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 are 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 in 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!

In 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 kinds of unicorn cakes too.

You can create the unicorn’s mane with pastel-colored icing following the instructions in the video. In 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.

In 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.

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

  1. 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

    1. 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! 🔮
