  • Buttercream may be kept refrigerated for 2 weeks

To Decorate

Prep

  • If frozen, move cake to the fridge 5 hours prior to decorating. Keep in packaging.
  • If fondant is difficult to knead, remove from packaging and microwave for 3 sec. Check and repeat if necessary
  • Thaw buttercream, at room temp for 1 hour prior to decorating. Use hand to knead and warm pre-filled piping bags prior to use
  • Before decorating, ensure the cake is thawed. Do not decorate frozen. Gently pat dry any moisture with a paper towel.

Cake Board
Attach cake to 9” board for easier handling and to add decorating surface:

  • If buttercream provided in container: Use popsicle stick to stir and softed
    • Fill piping bag: Fold over top of bag
    • Scoop buttercream into very bottom (toward tip). Unfold.
    • Twist excess plastic while pushing buttercream down as low as possible. Tie if desired.
  • Cut small slit at tip of pre-filled piping bag.
  • Squeeze out dab of buttercream in center of 9” board
  • Cake is on 6” board – do not remove. Remove plastic wrap, leave collar on.
  • Sit cake (with 6” board on bottom) on top of dab on 9” board.
  • Place in fridge to “glue” together and prevent sliding.

Fondant Decorations

  • For best results, complete all fondant decorations before removing cake from fridge to ensure cake remains firm

Decorating Your Cake

  • When ready to place decorations, remove the cake from the fridge
  • Gently remove the collar
  • If buttercream sticks, use a knife or spatula to spread back on the cake (decorations may also cover blemishes).
  • For best results decorate within 60 minutes after removing cake from fridge. The colder the room, the better! If cake softens, return to fridge for 15 mins.

Store After Decorating

  • To preserve freshness, use plastic wrap to gently surround and drape decorated cake and tuck underneath the board. Store in the fridge.
  • Remove from fridge and leave at room temp 1 hour before serving.
  • If storing after a slice is removed, apply a plastic wrap or parchment paper to remaining exposed cake

Create the Unicorn

  • Roll out 3/4 of white fondant. Keep slightly thick. Cut 2 outer ear shapes 3.5" long.
  • Roll out pink fondant. Cut 2 inner ear shapes, 2" long. Attach inner ear pieces to center of outer ear pieces. Align straight edges at base of ears. To attach, use Q-tip to apply drop of water.
  • Insert toothpicks (or sandwich picks) halfway into straight edge of each ear for support. Set aside.
  • Set aside a pinch of pink fondant (for eyes later on). Roll out remaining pink fondant into one long rope. Roll out remaining white fondant into another long rope. Align the ropes side-by-side. Gently roll the two around each other to form one rope. Create a small round base with the rope and coil the fondant upwards. Continue to form a cone (see Duff’s Decorating Basics for pics). Insert coffee stirrer into horn for support. Set aside.
  • Remove cake from fridge (be sure to follow steps in Getting Started). Secure ears to top of cake by inserting toothpicks into cake. Secure horn to top of cake by inserting coffee stirrer well into cake.
  • Cut a star in empty piping bag by cutting straight line, then tiny triangles into that line (see pic). Cut round tip off end of pink and blue pre-filled buttercream bags. Place them side-by-side inside the empty bag. Squeeze out buttercream on top of cake to form bangs and mane.
  • Use pinch of pink fondant set aside in Step 4 to create 2 small ropes for eyes. Taper one end of each. Attach to front of cake. Gently press into cake to secure.
