unicorn 2.0

so my WONDERFUL mother in law sent me the candy i actually needed to make these horsey unicorn cupcakes. i can't tell you how hard it was to find circus peanuts, they don't exist in california that i've found so far. send me your peanuts! 

cupcake: french vanilla cake
frosting: vanilla buttercream frosting
neck: vanilla wafers stuck together with white chocolate.
head: circus peanuts
mane/eyes/ears: chocolate and sprinkles
magic horn/tail: twizzler

sometimes, even the most magical of herds lose a fellow rider... 
godspeed old friend, you'll be missed...

my first attempt at making animals. i had nothing i wanted to make them out of so i improvised with WAY to much frosting... but they still got a photo shoot and they still got eaten, and they taste good... and they're magical, its all i can really ask for!

the cupcake is a vanilla cake with toffee chips
the frosting is a vanilla buttercream with pink and purple mixed in for the mane
the unicorn is vanilla cookies with cream middle
the horn and tail is red vines shredded
