Unicorn Layer Slice

Unicorn colours are fine right?! The simple combination of blue, pinks and purples work so well and can create a treat that not only looks amazing but can taste amazing too.  And when the colours in creations like this are all natural plant based ingredients it doesn’t get much better than that!

This slice is just a variation to many other unicorn like creations I have made, but instead of swirling the colours or piping them on, I have just layered them on top of each other (in an almost straight line!).

Another point of difference this little slice has is the way in which I achieved the purple coloured layer.  The rich, deep purple was actually achieved by combining the Pink Pitaya powder used for the pink layer and the Butterfly Pea Flower powder (both from Just Blends).  When you stir through some activated butterfly pea flower (I add some warm water to it) into the pitaya powder the colour is transformed into a purple, much like mixing paint colours!! I am so in love with the colour it creates that this will be my absolute go to in future for creating a beautiful purple.
