Easy Unicorn Cupcakes

My daughter wanted to bake something on the whim. We did not have a variety of ingredients in the house and she did not want to make “something plain”, so we turned something plain into something magical- unicorn cupcakes!

I must admit I was not in the mood for baking myself, so anything easy and quick was perfect. These unicorn cupcakes tick all those boxes. (Unfortunately, I did not plan on blogging about this, so I did not take many process pics.) Oh, and the cupcakes are so pretty and yummy, you don’t even need frosting!


2 cups Cake Flour

3/4 cup Sugar( I used white)

2 Eggs

1/2 cup Milk(I used 2%)

50 ml oil(I used vegetable)

7.5 ml baking powder 

Pinch of salt

Food colouring(yellow, pink, blue)

2.5 ml Caramel Essence(optional)


  • Beat the eggs and the sugar together until fluffy. 
  • Add the flour and salt to form a batter.
  • Boil the milk and oil in the microwave for a minute. 
  • Add the milk mixture to the batter. 
  • Add baking powder and essence.
  • Divide the batter into three parts.
  • Colour each part with the food colouring.
  • Line your cupcake pans. 
  • Add the three colours to the pans. The order and quantity does not matter as long as there are a few scoops of each colour filling it up.
  • You can swirl the batter a tiny bit with a stick before putting it into the oven.
  • Bake for around 20 minutes in a 180’C oven.
  • Optional: add some edible glitter to finish of the cupcakes after it baked in the place of frosting!
