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

And I'll Form the Head!

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.
