When your boss requests a unicorn cake for her birthday
and cake-based sculpture isn’t part of your skill set,
it’s time to whip out the colouring gels, whip up some cream-cheese frosting
and go crazy with the sprinkles.
I made five 9-inch layers instead of six 8-inch.
And used coconut essence because, well, I’m out of vanilla.
(The almost-musky flavour somehow seemed to offset the in-your-face candy colours
in a way that sweet-sweet vanilla might not have.)
And that’s that.
