Gradient Unicorn Cones for the Win

Gradient unicorn cones for the win!

A long, LONG time ago, I made these ombre / color blocked donuts with edible color mist. They’re still one of my most popular food posts ever (who doesn’t love colorful donuts?!). And I’ve been itching to do another project like that one ever since.

Soooo….. Meet the sister to those donuts: the gradient unicorn cone. Well, I’m still working on the name. So you can call it whatever you want. But it’s pink and purple and sprinkley, so for now, I’m going with unicorn cone.

How do you make one of these? Once you have the edible spray, it’s super easy. All you need is some soft serve ice cream in a cone (regular ice cream would work too, but won’t look much like a unicorn horn), edible color mist in at least two colors (I used pink and purple and you get color mist on Amazon), and some sugar sprinkles.

Spray the color mist onto the soft serve in different directions, add sprinkles, and eat that thing up!

P.S. There is a part of me that thinks that this gradient cone looks a little bit like the new Instagram logo. And I’m REALLY curious to know what you think of their new look?! Some people love it, and some people are hating on it. HARD. So, I’m curious to know where you are on the spectrum with this one?

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
i love how modern it looks!

plus i think for iphone users (not me) it matches with how new (from a couple of years back) the iphone icons are.
android icons are not as modern looking so its nice to see it in my menu. i like it. and im not even gunna lie i love seeing the memes on how it was “made” those are pretty funny

Yeah, those memes have been pretty funny to look through, Les.

I hear ya Sharon. I like the other changes they made to the interface design, but I’m not particularly a fan of the new logo.

This is almost too pretty to eat…almost! I prefer the old layout, but it’s not a big deal to me.

Thanks Jenni.

Fun idea! I love the new, clean look of Instagram, but I absolutely hate the logo. Not feeling the rainbow, colorful vibe at all! Plus, it doesn’t really go with the white, clean look once you get inside the app.
