Another option would be to use rainbow cake layers, or frost your cake with rainbow buttercream. There are SO many fun options.

We kept the outer frosting of our cake nice and simple, with some textured blue and white buttercream and puffy clouds on top.

Materials for Unicorn Cake Topper:

Todays cake is three 8 inch funfetti cake layers, Frosted in our Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.

Unicorn Template

Gum Paste (or fondant with tylose kneaded into it)

Coloring Gels for red, orange, yellow, mint green, sky blue, violet (we used Americolor brand)

Sharp knife or xacto

Black Food Writer Pen

Piping Gel (or your glue of choice)

Lollipop sticks for anchors

Parchment/waxed paper for lining cookie sheet

Piping Tip: I used a Wilton 10 for the clouds. (You could also just snip the tip off of your piping bag.)

Fondant rolling pin

Pink petal dust (optional) for rosy cheeks

Rainbow Jimmies

Gold Luster Dust (optional- you can also use yellow). We used Rolkem super gold + vodka to create a paint for the horn. Then we dry dusted it with more gold dust for added sparkle).



Allow at least 24 hours for your gum paste cut-outs to dry firm.

You should always make two cut-outs when making cake toppers like this one just in case of them breaks.

Spatulas: I used small rounded spatulas for applying my buttercream

  1. Hi Alexas, yes. I just tint my fondant or gum paste with coloring gels (the same that I use for tinting buttercream). You'll just pinch off a little fondant/gum paste and knead in your color until you reach the shade that you like.

    (If you needed a large amount of red or black, pre-made is the best way to go...but for a cake like this, where only small amounts are needed, I would just knead the color in.)
