There was definitely an certain period during my larval stages when my idea of happiness would have been a Lisa Frank painting that you could eat. It was probably right around the time that every pegasus and winged unicorn in my coloring book got a complimentary set of rainbow colored wings, manes and tails.
Cake decorator Heather Sherman designed and put together this cake for her daughter’s seventh birthday, after she requested a “rainbow unicorn pegasus with a mama and a baby.”
If my mother is reading this right now, I’m sure she’s glad that I limited my insanely outlandish and specific requests to Halloween costumes.
Sherman certainly rose to the occasion, if I do say so myself.
The head and legs of the unicorns are solid rice krispy treat,
The wings were supported by a food-safe wire,
the feathers were gumpaste,
and the body was pure gold vanilla cake.
