Unicorn Cupcake Tutorial

Who doesn't love unicorns? My sister even saw one once! Ok, it may have been a goat, but even so, I think unicorns are kind of cute. I have been watching This Morning whilst having my lunch recently and there have been unicorn bakes galore. I therefore decided I would be on trend (not something I say very often) and bake something less minecraft/pokemon for a change!

I went through my cupboards and found some coloured icing, smarties, sugar flowers and stars that I could use for decoration. Oh and some edible glitter as unicorns need a bit of sparkle. I decided to use coloured sponge for a bit of fun and again used the coloured gels I already had. All I did was divide my cupcake mixture into three and spoon the three colours into the cases.

I prepared my icing with CMC as this just makes it go hard and keep the shapes I wanted. I made all the horns and allowed them to harden before adding glitter using edible glue.


Unicorn Cupcakes


  • 4oz self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 4oz margarine
  • 5oz butter
  • 10oz icing sugar
  • ready rolled icing in white, pink, blue and peach
  • sugar decorations - I used smarties, flowers and stars
  • food colour gels
  • chocolate writing icing pen 
  1. Mix the self raising flour, eggs, caster sugar and margarine together.
  2. Split into three bowls and add different colour gels to each.
  3. Add a small spoon of each colour into each cake case (this makes 10 cupcakes)
  4. Bake at 180C until a skewer comes out clean and allow to cool.
  5. Mix the butter and icing sugar together and add some food colouring if you wish.
  6. Top each cake with buttercream
  7. Cut a circle of white icing slightly bigger than the top of the cupcake case and places this over the butter icing in a dome.
  8. Using the peach icing make a horn shape. Add edible glitter using edible glue.
  9. Roll thin sausage shapes with the blue and pink icing and arrange it around the horn as a mane.
  10. Add smarties, flowers and stars to cover any joins.
  11. Use a writing icing pen to give your unicorns some lovely eyebrows!
  12. Make two holes on the icing using the end of a paintbrush to make the nostrils.
