Unicorns have taken over 2018. Every time I log onto Pinterest I have suggestions for unicorn cakes. Every Facebook baking and treats group I’m in was filled with unicorn themed cakes and treats. I was thinking surely no one was going to ask me to make one but secretly wishing for someone to ask me to do this theme.
I felt as if I would not be established this year without a unicorn themed cake! (crazy right?) Well, they say be careful what you ask for, and that’s true! An old childhood friend reached out to me to make her daughters unicorn theme cake. But guess what? It was the same weekend as my daughters birthday!
Really? How? Why? I was thinking this can’t be happening! My only chance and I can’t do it. For one, it was Chloe’s birthday weekend (which in my household is like a national holiday. Seriously!) Then second, I had already accepted 2 extra orders on top of planning Chloe’s party. There was no way I could execute this cake with my oh so busy schedule. So I declined. Bummer right?
Well, fast forward 2 weeks later, one of the orders was canceled. Another bummer huh? Nope! Not at all! The same day this client canceled her order, someone tags me in a post on Facebook. This lady was needing a unicorn cake for her daughters birthday, coming up the following weekend! In my head, I’m like “Aha this is it!” I looked at the lady who posted about the cake and it was her! My childhood friend! I was so happy. I immediately contacted her letting her know I would do the cake but we needed to act fast.
When I tell you this cake was a breeze! I was so amazed that it was as simple as it was. But I do understand the frustration of my fellow bakers and treat makers. If you have more than 2 or 3 colors to include on the cake it can be hectic. I have only worked with 3 colors. (my next task is to accomplish a cake that allows me to blend more than 3 colors! Stay tuned!) All in all, I made it through the task of planning my daughters birthday party and making a Unicorn Cake! My very First Unicorn!
