UNICORN CAKE CUP
In the past couple of years, Unicorns have really been in fashion when it comes to baking and sometimes you don’t want to go out of your way to make a cake instead you want to buy one and experience something quick and easy – well in 2020, the company Duncan Hines gave you the opportunity to do this.
It was announced at the start of last year that Duncan Hines ( a brand that was founded over 50 years ago and specialise in quick and easy way to make cakes) announced that they were launching cake cups that were available in supermarkets.
The cake cups were approximately 61 grams in weight and cost $1.65 each. To eat them you have to open the lid, add 3 tablespoons of water to the mix and then microwave for 1 minute. When the cake cooks, the batter changes colour. When it is cooked, you then top it with the confetti sprinkles that are available in the lids. The Unicorn Cake Cup is a pink cake mix that you can top with pink, purple and white sprinkles.
There are mixed reviews of this product online with some saying it’s nice but a lot saying that it doesn’t taste very nice. Another strong comment is that you must only eat it cooked! It also comes in Galaxy and Mermaid flavour as well.
