How to Make


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Beat the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk or wooden spoon.
  2. Put the rest of the cake ingredients into the bowl and then mix with an electric whisk until smooth.
  3. Spoon into cupcake cases in a cupcake tin and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. When cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool on cooling tray for 20-30 minutes.

For icing:

  1. Create the unicorn horns using some ready rolled icing. Cut in to 2cm strips and then roll 2 strips diagonally. Pop these to the side and let them set.
  2. Mix together the icing sugar and water together until you get a thick yet runny consistency. Spoon your icing on to the top of your cupcakes and then add your coloured sprinkles.
  3. Next, place your unicorn horn onto the centre of the top of your cupcake. Repeat this for all the cupcakes.

Top Tip

When adding your sprinkles you can either, place them onto a plate and turn the cake upside down and then dunk to decorate or if you find it easier, use a teaspoon to spoon on the sprinkles over the icing. Ensure you place a clean tray or plate underneath to catch the unused sprinkles.
