I'm embarrassed to admit that I thought unicorns existed up until well into my teens. I don't think I ever knew where exactly they peacefully roamed, I just thought once I left Kuwait I would find unicorns on my travels somewhere in far flung exotic lands in umm...Europe?! Life has since been one big disappointment ever since I realised unicorns are mythical.
This cake however cheers me up endlessly. One of our team first created it for her cousin, Reyna, as a lovely two-tiered beautiful birthday cake. It's blue and pink, with smooth and silky Swiss meringue buttercream, glazed in a white chocolate drip and decorated with meringue kisses, colourful baked buttermilk doughnuts, chocolate candy canes and mini ice cream cones with buttercream swirls and Ferrero Rochers.
The fun continues on inside - cut into it and it's got Triple Decker layers of pink and blue rainbow sponges!
Since posting it on Instagram we've had quite a few requests for it for fun fair themed birthday parties and baby showers. We thought it deserves its own place in our online cake collection shrine!
I'm sure I wasn't alone in believing in unicorns. I'm also sure I'm not the only one who wishes they actually did roam amongst us because let's face it...London, and the world could do with a bit of colour and magic right now. And a lot of peace! Until then, there's a slice of Fun Fair Unicorn cake right here.
Lots of love,
