7. Put a skewer in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean then it's done otherwise bake for a little longer. 
8. Let the cake cool in the pan for 20 mins and then remove from the pan and let it cool completely.

Let's make the unicorn cake
1. Melt the dark chocolate to make the eyes of the unicorn.
2. If you're confident, you can pipe the eyes with the chocolate directly on the cake, if not, draw the eyes on a butter pan, turn it over and pipe the chocolate over the shadow of the drawing.
3. Make sure you pipe it thick so that it wont break while removing. Leave this in the freezer.

Other themed cakes

For the ears
1. To make the ears of the unicorn, take bread slices and cut off the edges.

To make the horn
1. To make the horn of the unicorn, take the ice cream cone and cut it to fit you cake perfectly.

2. Leave it in the fridge till we need it.
3. Place the first layer of cake on the cake board and soak the layer with sugar syrup of with milk sugar syrup (milk+sugar)
4. Place a dollop of whipped cream and spread evenly.
