How to Draw a Unicorn Cake ?

What is more beautiful and delicious than a Unicorn Cake ? Nothing, right ? That's probably what you think if you've ever had one. So to pay homage to it, you have to learn how to draw it !

For this simple design lesson, we will show you how to draw a unicorn cake easily, step by step. We can assure you that it will have a pretty smile, lovely little eyes, small hearts and most importantly a gorgeous rainbow on the top, to garnish it ! Prepare your unicorn pencil case with your pencil, eraser if needed and coloured pencils. We're off !

1) Unicorn Cake Drawing

We start by drawing the top of the cake : a soft white cloud ! Draw small arcs of circles of different sizes as in the picture. Be careful not to go too high : the cloud should be quite flat at the end.

Do the same for the bottom of the cloud : make a series of circular arcs, varying their size.

You can now draw the cake. Draw two straight lines starting on either side of the cloud. Make sure that the lines start slightly before the edges of the cloud.

You need to slightly round the bottom of each line, then draw a precise arc that connects the two vertical lines together.

We can now start the unicorn decoration ! First, we will draw the unicorn horn. Draw two lines that meet to form a point in the middle of the cake. Be sure that the tip is lightly rounded. Then draw arcs inside the horn to make it look like a spiral.

Now it's your turn to listen ! For the left ear, trace two arcs of a circle on the left side of the horn which meet diagonally. Then, trace two smaller arcs of a circle inside, of the same shape, to make the inside of the ear. Do the same for the other ear to the right of the horn.

We will draw a rainbow behind the horn, it will be perfect to decorate the cake ! For the bottom of the rainbow, draw an arc of a circle that starts to the left of the middle of the horn and goes down to the cloud. Do the same on the right.

To make the top of the rainbow, do the same thing, but the two arcs of a circle must start from the top of the horn to reach the upper parts of the ears.

Let's give a little life to this cake by drawing two eyes and an adorable little mouth ! Draw two arcs of a circle in the middle of the cake and another smaller one in the middle and underneath : this will be the mouth.

Adds little eyebrows to the eyes to make them even cuter ! 😍

Adds an extra layer of detail by drawing an arc at the bottom of the cake. This will give it some relief.

Decorate the face of the cake with little hearts that you will scatter everywhere !

Adds small lashes above the eyes.

And now the plate ! Apply yourself well because this part is quite difficult. Start by drawing two arcs of a circle starting from behind the cake. Then join them together in a large arc that runs from the front.

Draw another rounded line parallel to the first one to give depth to the plate.

Use a thinner pencil or a thin black marker to make the rainbow detail. Draw 5 or 6 arcs of a circle inside the rainbow as shown in the picture. The idea will then be to colour each strip with a different colour !

Now add a few details to the cloud to make it even smoother and softer ! Keep your pencil or fine marker and extend a few edges of the cloud a little. Also draw small arcs inside the cloud that look like the contours of the cloud.
