Since the day I purchased my natural food colors, I have been going crazy with ideas of making so many different, beautiful, magical, out of this world desserts, and to be honest, sometimes I amaze myself with the insane baby eauty of my own creations. The other day I was thinking about how much I’d like to make a raw unicorn cheesecake. I mean who doesn’t like a colorful cake?

So that’s how my Unicorn Cheesecake was born and my delicious dreams came true. 

This cake can be a perfect choice for a fancy party, unicorn-themed birthday, or for no reason except because it is more ”Instagrammable” and because everyones tastebuds deserve a little magic.

No one can resist the charms of this magical dessert!

The entire process of creating this cake takes about 15 minutes, and there is NO baking required.

Some cakes taste yummy but look awful, some cakes look amazing but taste just meh – This is one cheesecake that looks so pretty and tastes delicious too!

The colourings are all natural by the superfood brands Raw Nice and Unicornsuperfoods (I mixed them both because I had left blue color from Unicornfoods and pink from Raw Nice) which made my kitchen so colorful. The blue color is a blue spirulina powder, the pink one is a pitaya powder. These colors can be used for so many Instaworthy recipes.
