Please enjoy these pictures of the most splendid unicorn cakes on Instagram in honor of National Unicorn Day
April 9th is officially National Unicorn Day, and there’s never been a better excuse to eat something pink, heavily sprinkled, and lathered with frosting. In the past few years, unicorn cakes have exploded onto the scene, making appearances at kids’ birthday parties, themed celebrations, and even the occasional wedding. And we get it: No matter what variation you put on a unicorn cake, they’re always colorful, whimsical, and yes, perfect for the ‘gram.
