Rated 4 out of 5 by turquoisedragon from great tutorial I was inspired to make my daughter's unicorn cake when I saw this tutorial. I have recently started making cakes for fun, and I thought this one seemed like a fun project. I didn't pipe the mane exactly as shown, so below are my notes/observations. My notes: - MANE: I bought a 3 pack of extra large flower tips and large couplers and piped an assortment of big and little flowers. (large tips 1M, 2A, 2D) (small tips 224, 21) - COLORS: I bought my daughter's favorite colors and used those as the flower colors. - EYE: I ended up buying sparkly black color gel to do it because if I am being honest I didn't feel like making a piping bag for that. - HORN: **remember to make the horn 2 days in advance** Whoever made the cake shown in the tutorial picture definitely used more fondant than 1 ounce. The tutorial says it makes a 2 inch horn. So, the horn on my cake was a lot smaller than what is shown in the picture. Which is fine, but could be a little misleading. - USE COLOR MIST: In addition to the horn, I sprayed a little bit of the gold color mist on to the flowers to give them a magical shimmer.
