What the actual F is unicorn bark? If you’re thinking it’s the sound unicorn makes, you’re on the wrong track. Because when unicorns open their mouths, they don’t bark, they spew forth a flurry of rainbow coloured sprinkles accompanied by angels playing harps. So anyway, what is unicorn bark? I too have asked myself this question many a times, and especially so when I was asked if I could make said unicorn bark for a special little person’s first birthday.
Adorable little Taylor turned one last week and we celebrated with a unicorn party over the weekend. Taylor’s talented mum doesn’t do parties by halves and it was a full blown unicorn-fest with rainbow lollies, jellies, cupcakes, meringues and of course, a delightful unicorn cake! And no rainbow party is complete without fairy bread which was quickly whipped up by moi.
So, unicorn bark, as it turns out, is more like bark as in tree bark. Like, little shards of sprinkly stuff. I’ve included a recipe below but honestly, you can just melt some white choc and sprinkle anything remotely rainbow-related and call it a day.
Anyway it was such a great fun theme – I mean, who doesn’t feel happy when they see rainbows and unicorns? Happy birthday, Taylor!
