A Unicorn Cake gone evil has sent the online baking world a-buzzing.

The popular unicorn cake has become a bit of a challenge for home-bakers as many have attempted to perfect the creation and share it online.

However, one amateur baker recently tried to make the cake using supermarket mudcakes and produced something which has been described as: a ‘terrifying’ creation complete with a red eyes, a clown-like mouth and a wonky horn, as reported in the Daily Mail.

The woman shared a photo of her attempt on facebook saying:

‘My unicorn attempt lol! All suggestions welcome. Thankfully, this was a trial,’ she wrote on Facebook alongside a snap of the failed cake.

The ‘evil’ Unicorn Cake


As usual, comments were a mixed-bag. Some praised her efforts, while others had a laugh at her expense.

Kirsty commented ‘Omg this has made my night, I’m laughing so much I’ve got tears.’

Lauren said: ‘It’s great! My hubby’s even laughing.’

Pennyann giggled: ‘My gawwwd that’s funny… Unicorn from hell …’

This Is What Nightmares Are Made Of

There was a bit of a debate of what the cake actually looked like. Suggestions included a ‘cat with a tail’ and Spiderman and many commented that the cake looked evil and would be perfect for Halloween.

‘Looks like an evil cat,’ one commenter said, ‘but it will taste great I’m sure!’

While another was quite forthright: ‘This is what nightmares are made of.’

But it’s ‘made with love so it’s awesome in my opinion.’

Have you ever made a cake that turned out not as expected? Tell us in the comments below.

  • Luck it was a trial. At least the baker can have a laugh.


  • I’ve made a few that have turned out totally opposite of what they were meant to be. Tried making a UFO and it ended up looking like it had crash-landed. The kids all loved it so the day was saved. I applaud this Mum’s efforts to make the cake. May not look the way she wanted but bet it tasted perfect. As they say – back to the drawing board


  • Yep, I’ve managed to make some weird and wonderful creations too!


  • Oh yes.So many times. But it didn’t fail the taste.


  • Lol, as long as it tastes good ;)


  • Good try :) keep at it, others may laugh but I doubt I could do much better either


  • The more you practice the better you get. No ones an expert the first time


  • Oh wow lol. This is why I don’t try!


  • I wouldn’t call it evil. I think it’s actually kinda cute, in a slightly disturbed kinda way. It looks happy at the very least


  • That cake definitely looks evil!! I’ve had my fair share of failed cake attempts. Tho nothing overly frightening! Usually it’s when I try to use rolled icing – disaster. So now I don’t! I stick to buttercream icing and decorate with lollies or sprinkles. But kids are kids and will love a cake made for them. (Unless it’s a mega fail in which case start over or buy a supermarket cake!)


  • That looks pretty awful. Is it an icecream cake?


  • I always make my kids cakes. Haven’t attempted any different styles then a plain round cake haha


  • I hired a cake tin that was a rabbit, the cake turned out amazing, it was the icing that let me down. I tried to do a lovely pale blue, unfortunately by the time I had finished mixing the colours it turned out a very dirty looking grey blue colour. Needless to say there was quite a bit left at the end of the party.


  • That cake is hilarious. I bet it tasted good though.


  • If it tastes good kids don’t care what it looks like just say there’s a new species of unicorn.
