Welcome to Mutherfudger’s
Fantasy Drip Cake
There is a craze of everything ‘fantasy’ or ‘unicorn’ at the moment; milkshakes, cupcakes, frappes etc. More often than not, the item does not include anything actually unicorn related, but has more of a pastel fantasy colour scheme. This is where I was going with this cake. It’s my sister’s birthday and I like to use this as an excuse to make a cake. Apart from my husband’s birthday in July, it is about the only time I make a cake.
The drip cake trend has been going strong for a couple of years now, and shows no sign of going away, yet this is the first time I have made one. I decided to make a Vanilla Buttermilk Cake as the base to my Fantasy Cake, rather than the usual Victoria sponge. If you are going to make this cake, go with whatever sponge recipe is your preference as long as you can colour it. I guess you could go with chocolate though if you really want.
Coloured Italian meringue buttercream, dripping pink candy, and a band of pastel sprinkles created the fantasy look. To make the cake a little more celebratory and decadent, I decided to top with macarons. This is obviously entirely optional. Instead of macarons, you could add fondant unicorn horns, or butterflies… get creative with it.
