Gather your Ingredients.

Before you start baking, you will need to make sure you have a 10 inch round cake pan or shallow baking dish. I was at the store the other day and spotted these Unicorn chips. They are pink and blue swirled vanilla chips. How perfect for a Unicorn Cookie Cake. In addition to the chips I used Sprinklefetti Happy Unicorn Sprinkles. The rest of the ingredients are the usual cake or cookie ingredients. Flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder and vanilla.

Use Dye-Free plant based coloring.

Decorate the Unicorn Cookie Cake.

Make and color buttercream frosting hot pink and blue.  Alternately purchase Hot Pink and Aqua Blue frosting. The horn and ears are a Unicorn Cake Topper that I took apart and attached with some frosting. Put the blue and pink frosting in separate bags and pipe them together onto the unicorn cookie cake. (see the video).  Add the horn, ears, flowers, and eyes.
