Hope you are all well, today I decided to try and make these super cute unicorn cupcakes that I have seen around the internet everywhere, hope you enjoy.
What you will need:
- Cooked cupcakes
- Ready to roll fondant
- Corn flower
- Edible gold powder
- Vodka for the gold powder
- Black food dye / edible pen
- Butter cream icing
Firstly what you will need to do is kneed and roll out your fondant. A tip is to use corn flower if the fondant is a little sticky, if you are using already opened fondant and it is too hard and crumbly place it into the microwave for a few seconds at a time on a low power.
Then you will need to make ears, horns and faces for the unicorns. For the faces, roll the fondant and use a circle cutter to cut a circle. Then using black food dye I used a paint brush to paint the eyelashes onto the face of the unicorn.
To make the ears, I rolled the fondant into small balls and then squished and shaped them into a triangular shape. Then for the horn I rolled a long sausage that was thin in the centre and went fat towards the end. Then fold the sausage into half and twist. Once you have made the components mix the edible gold powder with a tiny drop of vodka, then using a paint brush paint the ears and the horn.
I also placed some of the gold onto the face of the unicorn just because I love gold. Place the faces onto the cupcakes with a small amount of butter cream. Then with some butter cream icing and a small star nozzle, pipe a small pile of icing onto the forehead of the face and then place the horn and ears into the icing. Note that if you are not planning on displaying the cupcakes for a while, assemble them just before as the fondant will go soggy.
And then they are ready to eat and impress your friends. I hope that you have enjoyed this post and if you have anything you would like me to try please let me know in the comments below.
