So… Mr Kipling has just released unicorn slices and yes we’re listening intently


Gillian Fitzpatrick

Unicorn… everything.

And now unicorn… Mr Kipling cakes. So all-in-all, excellent news.

The cakes have just been released in the UK, emerging on shelves in Asda stores within the last week.

However, the brand says that more stockists are being rolled out this month and next: the slices will be available at Tesco and Sainsbury’s from mid-March, followed by Morrisons and the Co-op later in the year.

Premier Foods is expected to bring the treats into Ireland soon too – although we don’t have an exact released date yet.

They’re made using vanilla sponge, are filled with vanilla mallow, and topped with purple and yellow icing. The unicorn slices are on sale for £1 initially – rising to £1.75.

“The trend for mythical unicorns shows absolutely no signs of abating, from slippers to tea pots; we simply can’t get enough of these magical creatures,” Premier Foods said in a statement. “Mr Kipling has made our fairy tale cake dreams come true.”

Taking to social media to announce the news, Mr Kipling: “Did someone say unicorns? Our NEW Unicorn Slices are definitely not a fantasy… you can pick yours up from Asda today!”

If cakes aren’t your thing, Penneys has just released unicorn duvet covers.

“Pastel hues are our go-to colour scheme for a refreshed room. From blush pink to lashings of lilac, this perfect palette will uplift your space; with a *poof* of unicorn goodness, it’s time for a bedroom glow-up,” the brand’s website reads.

Let’s hear it for unicorns!
