How To Create A Magical Mermaid Unicorn Cake

With Claire St Quinton

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

Claire has the answer for a duo celebration cake where two themes come together as one in a colourful two-sided cake design. In this tutorial you will learn how to make and decorate an iced unicorn cake topper using our template (see PDF download), create a stylised dreamy painted watercolour effect on an iced cake, how to make sugar rainbows, coloured stars, gold painted script fonts and finally how to use a mould and make edible mermaid tails and shell decorations. If you want to know how to achieve sharp edges on your cakes and see more mermaid and unicorn ideas then check out our other videos below.
