These unicorn macarons are almost too sweet to eat


Eating macrons is not unlike inhaling magical air.

They’re melt-in-your-mouth light, like a layer of crystalised fairy dust that also could contribute to a diabetes diagnosis one day.

So it’s no great stretch that they’d eventually be hand-painted in the image of the most mystical and not at all made up creature: the mighty unicorn.

Mac Lab Bakery knows all about the magic (and insane hype) conjured when a delicious biscuit-thing and unicorn iconography meet.

The Georgia-based dessert lords are currently wading through a glittery ocean of requests, questions and press due to their non-GMO, ultra-fine almond flour-filled unicorn macarons.

And prepare to sound the Instagram mania alarm, because they’re also gluten free. What sorcery?!

The tiny, edible unicorn heads, filled with “fruity pebbles have become so popular that the husband and wife team behind Mac Labs are only able to sell a maximum of five per customer. And no, they will not “hold” them for you, or ship them overseas, geez.

We had so many requests for unicorn cakes so we turned them into Macs! Presenting……Fruity Pebbles!!!

Just look at how golden their horns are. Theyre wearing blush, for crying out loud. But fear not, macaron-phobes. If the saccharine nature of a communion wafer-style biscuit is not your jam, the bakery also sells some glorious cakes that resemble a unicorns flattened head.

Mystical unicorn in strawberry flavor! Happy 1st birthday to a sweet baby girl!

And Mac Labs isn’t the only baked goods suppliers helping the internet reach peak unicorn.

Unicorn video tutorial repost to announce a few things. Foremost, I love seeing your donuts and variations of the donicorn! I’m so honored you use my videos and that I can help in any way. That’s why I do it! I feel grateful for the community who selflessly takes their time out to share tips and tutorials as well! Furthermore, it’s been so sweet to see my video shared, and in doing so, I saw some comments regarding something I never expected to address or that anyone would find offensive- my nails and rings! Let me first say, my nails are boring and short; either messy with polish or none at all. I haven’t gotten them done at the salon for a long time. Therefore, for video purposes, I honestly put on press on nails JUST for the vid since people will see my hands, and I at least want it to be pretty to view! And I know people have liked my nail art before so I try to make that audience happy too! For those who commented about food safety and nails and such, please be aware that these are for tutorial purposes only. I do not sell, or have anyone other than myself or my family, consume products used in my videos. I can only hope that people do not make assumptions about that, but since it has happened, I wanted to address it. For those asking for videos in real time whilst making confections, please understand that doing an order while simultaneously making videos would be ineffective to my work flow and time management constraints. So yes, you’ll keep seeing nails in most of my videos because I like to! But no, they are not a danger to anyone As always, thank you for viewing!! Much appreciated!

Move over, lame fairies and mermaids. It’s all about unicorns in 2017! In dessert terms, anyway.
