Whimsical Pastel Rainbow Unicorn Birthday Cake and Treats!

Adorable pink pastel unicorn birthday cake by Juniper Cakery

Is it bad that we’re both in our 30s and we STILL get excited at anything unicorn related? No? Thought so! This adorable pastel rainbow unicorn birthday cake with silver accents was such a joy to make! We designed and created this two tiered magical beauty along with lots of treats for one lucky 3 year old. It’s hard for us to pin point a favourite part, but that cute rainbow towering up from the top tier is a definite!

Each blush pink tier was finished with pale pink fondant unicorns brushed with a glittering lustre. We added pastel rainbow hair, lavender muzzles, blushed cheeks and silver horns as well as a cheeky smile. We love to make every unicorn cake a little different so we change or tweak things like colours, smiles… even legs. For these we added in etched legs and made the hair a little more sleek and stylised.

To match the little cuties on the cake were lots of circular unicorn face cookies with pastel rainbow hair! These were all in our Madagascan vanilla flavour studded with flecks of vanilla bean. We added edible blush to each unicorn’s face and painted the horns with silver.

To add shape and interest we crafted 3D glittering clouds for each tier to sit alongside the flat clouds. Clouds instantly add an amazing whimsical value to cakes and treats. They’re obviously perfect for rainbows and unicorns too!

This cake was for Libby’s third birthday so we added a starry number 3 on top perched next to a fluffy fondant cloud and bright rainbow. Painted in a glistening edible silver this carried on the theme of the entire cake especially as the birthday girl LOVES stars.

Along with this super fun birthday cake were lots of cute little treats… like these pastel rainbow cookies that also match the cute unicorn face cookies! In a bubblegum pink, lavender, mint, yellow and blush pink they match perfectly with the fun rainbow nestled on top of the cake. Obviously, we added a little sparkle with a hint of edible lustre!

To match the cake we also created sweet unicorn cupcakes swirled with a rainbow buttercream of pink, soft yellow and mint colours! Each featured a fondant unicorn face smiling and ready to party! Each match the unicorn cookies and figures perched on the cake. They even have pretty blushed cheeks.

We even created lots of mint green dinosaur inspired cupcakes with blushed cheeks and white sprinkles! We nestled each fondant character into a Madagascan vanilla swirled cupcake!

And for the grown-ups at the party were these chic little cupcakes in matching silver cases! Swirled with Madagascan vanilla buttercream and finished with dainty blush macarons flecked with edible silver paint splatters they’re the perfect treats for parents! We filled each macaron with our pink champagne ganache… a white chocolate filling with a reduced Moët pink champagne.

Just another (and closer) shot of one of the pink champagne macaron topped cupcakes… because it’s just so pretty right? These are such popular treats for the soon ensuing dinner party season too!
