Magical Unicorn Party Desserts

Thursday, March 8, 2018

What's a party without treats? We take our treats very seriously over here, especially on birthdays! I knew we had to make a unicorn cake for the party and since that's not my area of expertise I had my friend Lynnea help me out. We used boxed white cake mix (because six year olds don't care or know the difference) and I bought the unicorn accessories HERE.

For the popcorn I bought colored candy melts and added a little bit of coconut oil to the chocolate so it would drizzle easily over the popcorn. My hubby actually popped the pop corn and then spread it out over baking pans. Next, he drizzled the chocolate and then let it harden. We put it in a bowl and covered it so it would still be fresh the following day.

When I saw the cotton candy at Target I knew it would be cute but I wasn't sure how I was going to display it since it came in a tub. I found the pink cardboard fruit baskets at Michaels and put the cotton candy inside. I then dipped waffle cones in the same colored chocolate I used for the popcorn and added sprinkles to give them a whimsical look. Adding the eyes to the cardboard boxes was a last minute touch that really tied the look together!

Finally, for the sugar cookies I bought the cookie cutters HERE and made them the night before. The following day I iced them with THIS RECIPE. The actual sugar cookies are Betty Crocker's sugar cookie mix and they never disappoint! They are always a crowd favorite and we never have any left!
