Unicorn Cakes – Easy to Make Unicorn Cake Ideas

Unicorn Cake Hacks Pinterest Tile

So I am going to come right out and say it, I can craft, but I can’t cook. When it comes to cooking my kid’s birthday cakes, my go to is the “grocery store cake hack” method. This means that I buy a premade cake from the grocery store and I redecorate. Honestly, once you get rid of the overly sweet pre-icing those cakes are pretty tasty. A Unicorn birthday cake is one of the easiest cake hacks to do because there are heaps of premade decorations for you to choose from. This post is going to cover everything you need to put together perfect Unicorn cakes.

Another reason I love hacking grocery store cakes is that you can get a fantastic looking cake for a fraction of a custom made cake. This post is going to cover all sorts of cake decorations, so there is sure to be one to fit every budget.

So that’s it! Which of these fantastic unicorn cakes is your favorite? Personally, I like the Polymer Rainbow Unicorn Cake Topper. I think that topper with a plain white cake and some sprinkles is a winner! I also really like this topper is reusable as well. We usually have a family celebration and then a party for our kids. Having a reusable cake topper means that we don’t have to purchase 2. I also like the idea of letting the kids know its okay to reuse things (but whether or not that lesson needs to be taught with a cake topper is debatable). Let me know in the comments below, which one you like the best.

I love these cute ideas! I'm not much of a baker, but I would like to try my hand at the fondant decor. I used to love ceramics class in high school and shaping the clay, so it's gotta be similar right? lol I also love the little printable toppers, those are so darling and easy! Great post!

Thanks for sharing!

Haha I'd love to see how you go with your fondant/ ceramics shaping. I've done a few fondant cakes and it was actually okay. I mean I wasn't going to win any awards but I thought it looked cute. My tip would be do a couple practice runs with a grocery store cake.
