The 5 Best Unicorn-Themed Sweets in O.C.

The eye-catching trend that’s taking flight in Orange County
Unicorn Bark from Crème and Sugar ($6)

The unicorn sweets trend has led to some of the most colorful creations in Orange County, from rainbow-dyed bagels to pink hot chocolate piled high with pastel sprinkles and marshmallows. While these treats are certainly eye-catching, we set out to discover whether they taste as good as they look. Here are five places in Orange County where you can indulge your senses with the sparkliest, most enamoring unicorn treats.


Unicorn Hot Chocolate ($6)

1Crème and Sugar
Delightfully pink and topped with a heaping pile of marshmallows, sprinkles, and all things sweet, this bubbling elixir is on the secret menu. While the layer of whip cream and sugary toppings is sure to please, the hot chocolate itself could benefit from a creamier, more distinct cocoa flavor. The beverage is large enough to share, even for the biggest sweet tooth. While you’re there, grab some white chocolate unicorn bark, top, to go.  Although their unicorn goodies are on the secret menu, note that they are also first-come, first-serve. 6312 E. Santa Ana Canyon Road, Anaheim Hills, 714-941-9059,


Unicorn Cookie ($4) and Rainbow Brite Mini Cake ($5)

B. Candy
This shop makes sweets of all kinds, including this gourmet unicorn sugar cookie. In fact, all of their sugar cookies are bright, fun, and impeccably detailed.

Unicorn Bagel ($2.59)

3Bagels and Brew

Taste the rainbow with this bagel’s eight layers of gel-dyed dough, and slather it with some Birthday Cake cream cheese ($2.95 for 4oz and $3.95 for 8oz). Forget your everything bagel; this is the real breakfast of champions. 21771 Lake Forest Dr., Lake Forest, 949-951-8985,





Unicorn Macarons ($4-6 for full-body; $3 for head)

4Honey and Butter
Famous for macarons portraying beloved Disney characters, it’s no surprise that Honey and Butter would try their hand at creating a series of the most magical creatures around.
