Unicorn Poop Cupcake Cones are a silly way to enjoy the whimsy of unicorns in a way that kids love.

 

Why unicorn poop, you ask? ‘Cause unicorns poop rainbows. Duh. And because my kids think it is funny as heck, that’s why.  Imagine a rainbow unicorn April Fool’s Day joke…

“You want a unicorn poop cupcake?” 

{Giggle, giggle…} Exactly.

Now, this recipe is twofold (like any good cake). You have to create the cake, as well as the frosting, to get the rainbow look.  But overall, it’s really easy and is a splash and a hoot for your guests.  But especially for your kids.  Unicorn Poop!

How to make Unicorn Poop Cupcakes:

Icing bags with blue, yellow, and red frosting and the swirl tip ready to make perfectly swirled unicorn poop cake frosting.
This tip is the key to making perfectly swirled unicorn poop cake frosting.

 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine your cake mix, water, eggs, and oil in a bowl.  Mix together for 2 minutes at a medium speed.

Now separate your cake batter into four bowls for four colors (bowls are dependent on the number of colors you are using). 

Chocolate cake with green and brown icing would make great camo cupcakes, don’t you think?!

Add red, green, yellow, and blue food coloring separately to each bowl to create 4 different batter colors.

Set your ice cream cones into a cupcake/muffin tin.

Alternate batter colors into each cone, until you have approximately 1 inch remaining from the top, which allows for the cupcakes to expand while baking.

Place your cupcakes in the preheated oven. The cupcakes are done when a toothpick comes out clean, anywhere from 20-25 minutes.

Cool completely before decorating.

Tricolor frosting swirl tip with blue, pink, and yellow frosting to swirl on top of unicorn poop cupcake cones.
This frosting tip takes multiple colors of frosting in one tip so you can swirl them to get a perfect coloring effect on your cupcakes.

Directions for Unicorn Poop Frosting:

Add your butter into your mixer, beating on medium speed until it’s fluffy. Then add your vanilla, milk, and sugar.

Cream together on low until it’s all mixed.

Separate your frosting into different bowls and tint the colors you are going for. I used pink, yellow, and blue.

Fill your 3 piping bags and cut off the tip of each one.

Attach a circle tip #1A to a separate bag with a coupler on the end and cut.

Put three bags of colored frosting inside the coupler bag, with the coupler so that the tip of each bag is in the circle tip, creating one frosting bag.

Swirl and frost cupcakes, creating your unicorn poop!
