I had a rainbow unicorn-themed birthday party for my daughter and wanted to make her cake myself. 

As a first-time cake decorator, I had some of the tools and know-how to create a beautiful cake, but I didn’t want to spend hours making all the decorations from scratch.

It would be much easier if someone could just give me a unicorn horn cake topper SVG so I could just cut one out with my Silhouette!

So I decided to design this unicorn horn cake topper myself to save some time putting the cake together.

So pull out your Cricut and start making some party decorations.

Materials:

Step 1: Cut out your pieces

You will need to cut the yellow pieces out of glitter cardstock and the white pieces out of white cardstock.

I included the eyes but I couldn’t think of something a Cricut could cut that wouldn’t get ruined but the frosting. I cut mine out of acrylic with my Glowforge.

Step 2: Apply double sided tape to the back of the ears piece

Flip the glitter ear shape over to the back and apply strong double-sided tape.

I found that the tape worked much better than the spray adhesive.

Step 3: Add the toothpick at an angle

Decide what direction you want the ear to lean and add the toothpick so the ear will tilt at that angle.

Step 4: Sandwich the ear with the white ear shape

Take the white cardstock that is the same shape as the glittery ear you are working on and line up the edges.

Sandwich the toothpick between them. Be sure the white paper is stuck down well.

Step 5: Apply spray adhesive to the ear with cut out

Apply the spray adhesive to the back of the ear piece with the hole in it.

Apply it to the front of the ear with the glitter.

You should now have one ear done!

Repeat with the other ear but have it tilt to the other side.

Add the toothpick to the middle of the horn. Make sure it is straight up and down.

Step 9: Sandwitch with paper make sure to line it up

Sandwich the horn between the second white piece of paper shaped like the horn.

Make sure you line up the edges.

The horn is not symmetrical so flip the white horn shape if it doesn’t line up.

Step 10: Apply spray adhesive to the horn shape

Apply the spray adhesive to the back of the horn shape with cut outs.

Before you spray, make sure you are spraying the correct side. The horn isn’t symmetrical.

Line up the edges of the horn and press down.
