Ditch the standard birthday cakes and opt for something a bit more unusual for your kids party this year.

Here are our top 10 cakes for 2018: 

Unicorn Cakes

Still going strong, the Unicorn cake is a firm favourite for children’s parties. The classic unicorn is a tall layer cake covered in white buttercream. It is then decorated with buttercream rosettes for the mane, and elegant ears and eyes. The cake is then topped with a fondant unicorn horn (usually gold) for the full effect.
Variations that our bakers have done include a harry potter unicorn, vegan unicorns, unicorns in special colour themes and a 3D unicorn.
