Narwhal versus Unicorns!! Which would you choose?
I know the popular choice would be unicorns. Duh, they are like everywhere. Those awesome unicorn cakes are on all my social feeds. I can't get away from them. But I don't want to - they are so cute and creative, love them all!
Whales with unicorn horns. What's not to love? It's like a long lost cousin - you don't really look alike except for that one weird family trait that gets passed along. And bonus - they are real! As much as I love unicorn stuff, they are unfortunately not real. Sorry to burst any bubbles out there.
And my unicorns and narwhals are pretty easy to make. They start with a candy melt/wafer on top of a pretzel square.
Their horns are candy coated sunflower seeds (which are one of my favorite pseudo candies to decorate with!)
And I know my narwhals look a bit like fish with party hats AND the unicorns look like girls with curly rainbow hair but please let's suspend judgement and play along!
And BTW both are fun sweet and salty treats!
But which would you choose??
And happy almost Saint Patrick's Day! I've been away from my fam all week on a work trip so instead of celebrating out at the parades - I'll toast to all that is green and Irish from the comfort of my cozy couch snuggling my 3 kiddos and hubby!! Miss them!
