Unicorn Cupcakes are normally not what you think of when you think of a holiday cupcake idea, however, this particular one works perfectly!  Not only is this a fun and simple recipe thanks to the Duff Goldman’s Unicorn Cakes Cupcake mix, it is the perfect cupcake recipe to make to welcome Sparkles, the Little Live Pet that your favorite little will be getting for Christmas!

Unicorn themed cupcakes normally don’t say, “HOLIDAY CUPCAKES”, but sometimes we just need to change things up and celebrate our love for Unicorns any time we can!

While I love making cupcakes from scratch when I can, sometimes cake mixes that already have anything already in it, make life so much easier!  Especially during this chaotic time of the year! Have you ever used one of Duff Goldman’s cake mixes before?  His cake mixes already have everything inside so you can make colorful cupcakes without a lot of work!
