Unicorn recipes – five ways to make your food magical

Must Try

Unicorn desserts are the colourful trend everyone’s obsessed with. The whimsical movement began on social media (of course) where people shared ostentatious rainbow-hued creations, including cupcakes and macarons festooned with unicorn horns, sprinkles, frosting and edible pastel miscellany. Soon, the unicorn template was adapted to include toast with marbled toppings, dyed pancakes and blue hot chocolate – basically if it looks like something from a fairytale book, it ticks the unicorn box.

Here, we show you how to brighten up your world with your own unicorn creations, for those days when real life gets too much and only sprinkles and sacchrine sentiments will do.
