My daughter wants a unicorn cake for her birthday. I was thinking if either the head and neck or the entire unicorn laying down. Anyone have any suggestions about how to carve this/what to use to get the shape? I was definitely going to cover it with fondant.

Have you thought of using the Wilton Stand-Up Lamb pan?

I did one of these probably 20 years ago. I used the Wilton 3D lamb pan and I made the horn out of royal icing on a long white paper sucker stick. I left enough of the stick uncovered to insert it in the forehead. It was a very pretty cake. Actually it's in one of the old Wiltons yearbook.

I did see where someone made a unicorn cake out of the lamb pan and then cut the head off and used RKT to make a new one and then covered the whole thing in fondant. I don't know what would be better, the whole unicorn or just doing the head and carving a big sheet cake. Any suggestions about covering it in fondant? I am a newbie and I don't want to mess up my 6 year old's cake!!!! icon_biggrin.gif
