What's with the name?

The Best Rainbow-Winged Unicorn With a Baby That’s Actually A Cake You’ll Ever See


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.

    That’s not a cake; that’s a work of art. My God, look at the detail on the feathers!

    Doesn’t combining Unicorns and rainbows result in some kind of tear in the space time continuum?

    If that were so we’d all be dead by now.

    That is INSANE! I would never want to cut into it.

    Yeah, some of the kids did cry when we cut it, and a few adults too. You’ve GOT to cut them or mold and ants will come ;-) Seriously, it’s what I made it for, and part of the enjoyment is in the cutting. Got lots of pictures…and better cakes yet to come
