Spreading the Sparkle on National Unicorn Day

Do you believe in magic? Galloping out of the Hey Little Cupcake! kitchen this April is our mystical Unicorn Collection; and our bakers have dreamt up this sparkly creation to coincide with National Unicorn Day!

When is National Unicorn Day 2018?

National Unicorn Day falls on Monday 9th April and is the perfect day to combat those back-to-work blues, by adding a little colour, sparkle and glitter to the start of your week!

How is HLC celebrating?

To celebrate, we are releasing a number of unicorn themed treats, which will run throughout the month of April. Let’s take a closer look:

The Unicorn Cupcake


The fluffy vanilla sponge is topped with buttercream encrusted with magic sprinkles, and is decorated with delicately hand crafted unicorn sugar features.

The Blondie Unicorn Brownie

Along side our cupcake, we have our Blondie Unicorn Brownie; a blondie white chocolate brownie layered with fairytale candy floss buttercream and a white chocolate covering.

Unicorn Layer Cakes

And if that wasn’t enough, we have an array of unicorn layer cakes available:


Where the fairytale began; the Unicorn Horse Layer is our classic design but can easily be customised into your dream cake!


Be a unicorn in a field of horses with our Unicorn Treat Layer; piled high with all of your favourite treats and finished with a beautiful, shimmering horn.


For something a little more abstract, we have the Unicorn Shard Layer, which boasts a pastel rainbow sponge, a white chocolate drip, thick white chocolate shards and cute unicorn sprinkles.

Unicorn Cakepops


And last but not least, the collection wouldn’t be complete without our white, pink and purple unicorn cakepops!

We love Unicorns! 

HLC is no stranger to the unicorn craze and over the years our bakers have created some truly dreamy designs for our customers. If you are after something a touch different, here’s a little cakespiration:


We created this Harry Potter (or should we say Harry Trotter?!) themed unicorn cake to have a Gryffindor colour theme flowing through its buttercream mane and the classic round glasses to match!


Our unicorn cakes can be customised to suit the individual’s preferences. This lovely chap has a multicoloured buttercream mane piped with a variety of nozzles and an adorable sugarpaste snout.


Pastel colours and rosy cheeks… it’s all in the details.


This unicorn is made in our giant cupcake style. We love the contrast of the pastel swirls against the pure white buttercream.

The Unicorn Collection will be running until 30th April and available at both of our stores. If you’d like to order any of our large cakes, please visit our website and fill in the online order form, call us on 0161 832 0260 or bob over to either our Spinningfields shop or Selfridges Trafford Concession and chat to one of our lovely staff!
