Trying to explain to my mum the latest obsession with Unicorns is beyond me, ‘such is life’ just doesn’t seem to make sense. With CM having fallen into this trend, she was over the moon to find a baking toy which combined this latest obsession – the Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker.
The Unicone is the perfect gift this Christmas for anyone following this trend. It’s a quick and easy way to turn baked goods ‘Unicorn’, or if you’ve no baked good- just to find your rainbow swirl sugar high. The kit comes with everything you need (minus the edible) to create your rainbow swirl. Recipe cards, measuring spoons and a portioned bowl make the process much easier. I didn’t quite get my portion control right.
To create the perfect rainbow swirl you need to add icing to the tube based on how much it takes to ice a cake. I just put a third of each colour to fill the tube, and was then confused why it came out in single colours. Hindsight (applying logic) is a wonderful thing.As well as creating a perfect icing swirl, the unicorn’s horn is detachable. By filling it with sprinkles you can complete your edible treat, with even more colour. Overall, the Unicone is a great gift. It all clips together easily and is straightforward to use. It doesn’t fit back in the box when it is assembled, but it’s a unicorn, so why shouldn’t it be homed for all to see? Speaks the logical voice of an 8 year-old.
It’s also one of those food gifts that isn’t confined to really specific ingredients. This means you can use it as often as you like. Make your own icing, buy icing. Make your own baked goods, buy your baked goods. Don’t bother with baked goods. The choice really is yours.
If you’re anything like me this Christmas, and panicking about the children breaking up from school so close to Christmas. Because in the past I’ve filled up one week with the fun of preparing for Christmas. This year I get two weeks of the Christmas comedown. Well, I’m looking at this as a perfect gift to create some fun in our days.The Unicone Rainbow Swirl Maker by Jakks Pacific retails for around £14.99. A perfect treat for Christmas and beyond.
