What are Edible Unicorns? Well Unicorns have become extremely well popularized in the recent few years. Now, suddenly, the world loves unicorns again! Rest easy, and thank mystical land tales for that, or perhaps it’s just the perfect anecdote for this seemingly crazy world. Whichever your direction, I’ve found the perfect recipe for the unicorn lover. Whether for a birthday, or making it just a special day, your unicorn lover will delight upon the sights of this. The picture in the post was done by my daughter, who is 13 years old. The point of telling you that is so you recognize the simplicity of this lovely little delight. You’ll need a unicorn form of course, but the base cake recipe was a really nice surprise. First bite reminded me of a Madeline. The decoration is also quite easy. Just a bit of lemon juice and confectioners sugar mixed with natural coloring.
