Bohemian Alicorn (Winged Unicorn)

a merging of Megan Joy's Bohemian cake design with the current trend of unicorn cakes. Made for my 13 y.o. daughter. the cascading feathers on the bottom tier are placed to look like they are falling from the Alicorn's wings. Wings, and mane are made from merengue, whilst the horn and ears are made of fondant. The top tier is covered in buttercream and the bottom is covered in a fondant/modelling chocolate mix. Painting these pieces was done with lustre dusts mixed with both vodka (horn, eyes, ears) and oil (bottom water colour) and 24k gold leaf has been applied to the wings edges.

Q&A with TeeCee76

undeniabl3025613 asked:
How are the wings made?
TeeCee76 answered:
The wings are made of meringue. With 2 wooden skewers baked in to them. The skewers are then inserted in to the cake. Veronica Romo Arthur has a free video tutorial on it that you should be able to Google.
