(Another) Unicorn Cake
Jeez, my life…
I had set aside an afternoon to finish the details on my niece’s birthday cake (she’s an avid horse rider and star show-jumper in-the-making, but I figured: horses/ unicorns … I’d personally choose the unicorn…!).
My thinking had initially been a cotton candy mane. But it turns out, cotton candy doesn’t like being exposed to air – even dry, autumn air.
So plan B was buttercream rosettes.
And then I got called back to theatre for an emergency (back ‘cos I’d already been there the whole morning).
So, to plan C…
A few twists of modelling chocolate/fondant; flowers and stars (made the previous day, thankfully) and the unicorn was done.
And no – I didn’t have time to take photo’s along the way. The collage is a mock-up I did later, just for you.
