Half Birthday Cake : 6 months already!

I have been wanting to make this unicorn cake for quite some time now.  What is it with unicorns these days anyway? They are everywhere!  Not that i'm complaining, I think they're great.  Ever since the unicorn theme exploded in the baking world and I saw this cake design I had to make it.
My daughter just turned 6 months this past weekend and it was the perfect occasion to finally make it.

Swiss Meringue buttercream in chosen colours for the unicorns mane

Ready to pipe! I only used Wilton 1M tip

The eyes, lashes, ears and horn are all fondant that I painted gold.  The cake is three 8in vanilla cakes filled and iced with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  I used this recipe  here  if you want to check it out and make it too.  I LOVE Erin Bakes. Her book is one of my faves!
