How to resist unicorn pastries ? They are the most adorable and delicious in the world! You probably know the cupcake : it's an American cupcake baked in a paper pan. It is usually covered with frosting and decorations. It's an amazing, sweet pastry : once you notice it, it's almost impossible to pass up ! 😋
So today, we're going to learn how to draw a cute unicorn cupcake, step by step. Like the classic cupcakes, it will have a frosting and nice decorations, but with the unicorn touch on top that will make all the difference ! If you want a unicorn cupcake design to print directly, click on the last black and white image. If you want to draw the design yourself, then get a sheet of paper, a pencil and coloured pencils - we'll get started right away !
1) How to Draw a Cute Unicorn Cupcake
Let's start directly with the decorations, namely beautiful roses 🌹 ! To make a flower, trace a spiral that starts in the centre and swirls outwards.
Draw another one on the left like the first one but a little more oval shaped. Just make sure that it touches the first one.
Then make a last flower on the right, like the one on the left.
Add a few leaves around the roses. Place them wherever you like. Perfect, the roses are in place ! 😊
We can start outlining the unicorn cupcake ! Draw two big curves starting from the top, as in the picture.
Then, at the bottom of the curves, start two more curves further apart, to make the cupcake wider at the bottom.
Finally, trace the bottom by joining the two curves with small arcs of a circle.
The top of the unicorn cupcake is now finished ! To start the bottom, draw two slightly sloping lines from the sides. Try to make them end up slightly rounded at the bottom.
Join the two lines by another horizontal line slightly rounded at the bottom.
We're back at the top ! And yes, the unicorn's horn is missing : we'll do it right away. Stand at a certain distance at the top of the cupcake, and make a dot right in the middle. From there, draw two lines down towards the cupcake, forming a cone. Try to make the point slightly rounded. Finally, draw a few curves inside the horn to give it a spiral appearance.
Let's do the ears now ! For the left ear, draw a point that will be the top of the ear, and make two rounded lines that go down towards the cupcake. Make the same shape but smaller to make the inside of the ear. Then do the same for the right ear.
And now the eyes 👀 ! Draw two round circles in the centre of the cupcake.
In each eye, draw two circles and an arc on the lower part. Fill the eye with black as in the image, then add a few lines at the bottom.
To give a little life to this adorable face, adds :
- Little eyelashes
- A nice smile
- Fine little eyebrows at the top of the eyes
Add a heart at the bottom of the cupcake ! ❤
Finally, draw lines on the cupcake paper. The middle one is straight and both sides are slightly inclined. That's it, the unicorn cupcake is finished ! ✌️
2) Unicorn Cupcake Drawing
For colouring the cupcake, take the colours you want. The icing is usually white, but you can add shades of pink to make it even more delicious 😋 ! Make the roses in different colours to add a touch of fantasy. The horn is yellow on the example, but you can make it rainbow if you prefer.
