4-6tablespoonswateradd 4 and then add the other two as needed
Food coloring as needed
For Ears and Horn:
2Peepsfor ears - do not melt
For the Cake:
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
In a mini food processor or blender, puree the strawberries.
In a medium sized bowl, add the wet ingredients and the strawberry puree and mix well.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
Spray the layer pans with coconut oil.
Pour the cake batter into the layer pans and bake for 18-20 minutes until done.
Allow the cake to cool while you make the frosting.
Add the frosting ingredients to a standing mixer.
Mix well until the frosting is creamy.
When the cake is cool, add a layer to a plate and frost the top, add the next layer and frost the top. Once all layers are frosted, frost the top and sides and use a frosting scraper to smooth.
Divide the remaining frosting into several bowls.
Add food coloring to each and stir.
Add frosting from each bowl to the bag, careful not to mix them.
Use the frosting bag to swirl circles on the top of the cake, going down the back. This is the "mane" section so include a little on the forehead area for the forelock.
Take two Peeps and cut them in half. These are the Unicorn's ears.
Grab the rest of the Peeps and add to a bowl. Melt the Peeps at 20 second intervals in the microwave, stirring between each interval.
When the Peeps are melted, add the powdered sugar gradually, a little at a time to mix it in. As the mixture thickens, it becomes like fondant. When the mixture is stiffer, shape it into a Unicorn horn.
Use food coloring or an edible marker to draw the eyes and mouth.
Using peeps and powdered sugar is a great way to make a homemade fondant for shaping the unicorn horn!
