Dr Oetker is hoping its new wafer product will appeal to unicorn fans and complement its growing animal-themed range.

The new Wafer Unicorns have an rrp of £1.79 and each pack includes nine wafers that can be used to decorate cakes or cupcakes. The product is suitable for vegans and is available to independent retailers now.

Riccardo Panichi, head of marketing for Cake and Dessert at Dr Oetker UK, commented: “The unicorn food trend is showing no signs of slowing down with more and more home bakers attempting whimsical bakes with plenty of colour and sprinkles.

”Unicorn cakes can sometimes seem daunting to novice bakers due to their elaborate decor, so we hope our Wafer Unicorns will make it easier for everyone to recreate the fairytale look at home.”
