A MUM has shared her epic birthday party fail after she tried to bake a unicorn-themed cake for her daughter, but it backfired spectacularly.
The amateur baker, from Australia, took inspiration from a fancy cake her local supermarket sells.

The sumptuous design features baby blue and pink frosting on top with ears, a horn and decorations around the side atop a bed of white fondant.
The mum decided to play it safe and use a packet mix, yet somehow still ended up with hilarious results.
She shared a snap of her creation to Facebook group Coles, showing a very novice bake.
Her cake appears flat with buttercream – not fondant – icing on top, which looks rather melted.
Sadly it didn’t come out quite how she expected for her daughter’s birthday [/caption]
She attempted the swirls of the unicorn’s mane, but it appears this mythical beast is having a bad hair day.
And the ears seem to be made from Toblerone pieces, and the all-important horn doesn’t look too appealing.
Rather than scrap the cake, the mum saw the funny side and decided to share her handiwork online.
I personally think the resemblance is uncanny
She wrote: “We were pretty sure we could buy a packet mix from Coles and replicate the Unicorn cake.
“I personally think the resemblance is uncanny.”
Numerous people liked the post, with one person sarcastically writing: “Nailed it.”
