How To Make A Unicorn Carousel Cake

With Nichola Fisher

Difficulty Medium

Broken Video?

Let us show you how to make this dazzling whimsical carousel cake complete with decorative unicorn cookies and gold roof. Learn how to emboss and paint designs onto the unicorns and create ornate scrolls to embellish the cake itself. This design can be adapted to suit any occasion by changing the colours and cookies. You could make a Christmas themed carousel cake by adding in some red and green and substituting the unicorn cookies for reindeer cookies, or a Halloween theme by using orange and black or green and black with little ghost cookies! If you want to simplify this cake, just decorate a single tier instead of multiple tiers. If you're looking for a great recipe for making cookie dough, check out our suggested video below.
