My apprentice makes a Unicorn cake
My 8 year old daughter is obsessed with all things equine - and nothing floats her boat more than Unicorns. Being ahead of the trend, she was unicorn-mad long before it became ultra fashionable, so the current trend for everything unicorn has been pretty handy. She also loves baking and cake decorating so giving her a unicorn to make seems like the perfect marriage of both fixations.
She was so proud of herself - she baked the cake and while I covered it, made the meringue buttercream and painted on the eyes, she coloured the icing, piped the rosettes and made the horn & ears herself.
So maybe some time soon she'll be able to do all the cakes for me...
