First, you have to make the cake! You can do it the night before to save time. Whisk the eggs and powdered sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture doubles in volume. Add the sifted flour and baking powder as well as a pinch of salt and powdered vanilla. Mix well until you obtain a homogeneous dough.

Pour the liquid cream into a cold bowl and whip it into a whipped cream using an electric mixer. Gently fold it into the previous preparation. Pour the preparation into a lightly oiled 18 cm diameter mold. Bake for 1h15 (oven to 350°C). Let the cake cool.

It's time to make the cake layers! Cut the cake in three on its thickness. Fill each disc with the spread. Place the discs one on top of the other and cover the whole cake with a thin layer of spread.

Roll out the white fondant dough between 2 sheets of baking paper. Carefully arrange the white fondant on the cake so that it covers it. Cut off any excess sugar dough that exceeds over the side of the cake.

Form a sausage with the golden sugar dough and wrap it around the skewer pick. Prick the horn on the cake. Also, form unicorn ears with a little white sugar dough and place them on the cake.

Pour 1/2 cup of liquid cream into a saucepan and heat. When the cream begins to boil, remove the pan from the heat and add the crushed white chocolate. Stir to obtain a smooth mixture. Add 3/4 cup of liquid cream and mix well. Place in the fridge for 2 hours.

Divide the ganache into different bowls and add the food colorings of your choice. Whisk with an electric mixer and transfer to piping bags by putting each color in a different bag and decorate the cake!
