Eat: Unicorn Cake

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Unicorn cake is what we are calling this. Named by the one and only Addie Rivers. Who is obsessed with all things pink, glittery and unicorns. Summer is in full swing around here which means this mom is trying to find so much to do around the house to keep everyone entertained until nap time. And when I say nap time I mean for EVERYONE. Including me. 

I'm so thankful to have a girl that shares her love for all of the girly things with me. One of our favorite things to do together is bake. Or I'm usually the one doing all of the baking while she ask a million questions. "Mom do you think unicorns are real? Do they have glitter all over them? I wonder if all of them are pink?" and on and on. Oh and she's pretty good at trying to eat ALL of the icing before it ever even hits the cake. 

Yesterday she REALLY wanted to bake a "unicorn" cake. She once asked for a "cake of Sully"s face from Monsters Inc." That literally took me fifteen hours. So I decided it would be fun to kick off the summer with a little baking! Instead of an actual cake in the shape of a unicorn (that would have been brutal) we compromised on unicorn colors. 

I checked out the pantry and of course we didn't have cake mix. So we made our first official homemade vanilla cake mix complete with homemade buttercream frosting. You guys, it was to die for. Seriously too yummy. Such fun memories we had making this cake. If you have a tiny girl in your house I highly recommend making her day with this cake! 

I found the cake recipe here

Luckily we had everything we needed on hand. 
For the icing we used a simple recipe that I use every single time I make buttercream frosting. Which is often.

Here is what you will need:

Mix it all in your mixer and your ready to ice your unicorn cake!
