There really isn't a more adorable dessert you can make that's as easy as this one. Sure, you can wait for a kid's party. But what about grown ups?! We like sprinkles, and cake, and pink whipped cream as much as the next guy. How about just deciding that Tuesdays are Unicorn Cake Day and using that as an excuse to make this recipe this week?

Things You'll Need
- White cake (store bought or homemade)
- 4 colors of Jell-O (red, blue, green, yellow)
- Whipped cream
- Pink food coloring
- Lots of sprinkles
Step 1: Bake a white cake
Bake a white cake in a 9x13 pan according to directions. Allow to cool for 20 minutes.
Step 2: Poke Holes
Using a wooden spoon or a chopstick, poke several holes, very close together across the entire cake.
Spray the chopstick or wooden spoon with cooking spray to keep it from getting covered in cake!
Step 3: Prepare the Jell-O
Add each color of Jell-O to a different measuring cup with a spout (this can be done one at a time). Pour one cup of boiling water over the Jell-O, stir until well combined. Repeat for all colors.
Step 4: Pour the Jell-O Over the Cake
One at a time, pour the Jell-O colors over the cake into various holes, well spaced out over the cake. Cover the entire cake.
Step 5: Color the Whipped Cream
Add a few drops of pink food coloring to the whipped cream, adjust color depending on preference.
Step 6: Frost the Cake
Frost the cake with the whipped cream
Step 7: Add Sprinkles
Add a lot of sprinkles to the cake. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
