Unicorn Cakes

For Kirsty’s 10th Birthday I made two cakes – one for her party and one for her to take to her Social Communication Skills Group.  The one for the group was a gluten-free chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate ganache and covered in sugarpaste.  It was decorated with a hand-modelled unicorn topper, made by following the tutorial here: http://cakecentral.com/b/tutorial/how-to-make-a-fondant-unicorn-cake-topper, and hand-painted bunting.

The cake for her party was a chocolate cake, filled with peppermint buttercream and covered in sugarpaste.  I re-used the unicorn, but painted the mane to match the colours of the sugarpaste.  I then gave my children and a friend some different colours of sugarpaste and some cutters, and let them loose.  I think they did a great job!
