There’s no doubt about it, Hamish Blake is a man of many talents.
And on Friday, the 39-year-old took it upon himself to create another elaborate 3D pie.
In his Instagram Stories, the host of Lego Masters documented the lengthy process of making a flying unicorn cake, as requested by his four-year-old daughter Rudy for her birthday.

Along with his wife Zoë Foster Blake, Hamish admitted to taking a power nap as he braved the long night of decorating the cake.
The process began just after 7 p.m. and Hamish revealed that his daughter had instructed him to create, “A unicorn, flapping its wings, with a rainbow coming out of its mouth, under a cloud, that’s raining glitter.”
Using a mix of colored sponge cakes, rice cakes and icing, he started his baking adventure.

“In all seriousness, I burned myself on marshmallow, I’ve got yellow hands, I’d better get on it,” he said at 7:30 p.m.
‘I’m probably going to mess around a bit, that’s okay, we’re having fun. One o’clock, I’ll be back at half past nine.’
Sure enough, he did, tequilla and whiskey in hand – he kept going.

After a few mishaps, Hamish managed to get started with the floating cloud.
To do this, he hung a plastic plate with another cake on a set of hanging lamps.
He then used a fishing line to crochet the cloud cake above the unicorn.
After several attempts to perfect the rainbow fondant placed on the unicorn’s mouth, Hamish woke his wife so she could film the final stages of his masterpiece.
In between the cackling, he hears his former beauty editor wife say that he drew on ‘winged liner’ to make the unicorn more beautiful.

End product: she is ready. We aimed for a Unicorn. We landed on a UniDonkey,” he wrote at 4 a.m.
‘She’s ready. We aimed for a Unicorn. We landed at a UniDonkey,” he wrote at four in the morning.
‘Sometimes that’s the beauty of life, wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Welcome to the family, UniDonkey. We love you for you,’ he continued.
“That said, we’ll tear you apart tomorrow. Good night friends.’
He also noted that this cake turned out to be “a new record” as he spent a total of 8 hours preparing it.

In 2020, Hamish revealed that his son wanted a cake inspired by Aladdin’s Cave Of Wonders, complete with a glowing mouth cave and eyes.
“This year it’s a classic, Aladdin’s Cave of Wonders, you know, the cave where he goes to get the lamp (you know). The mouth glows. The eyes are glowing,” he explained.
“Sonny has asked to faithfully imitate this. I’ve got an idea to brew with a torch, so I’m pumped up,” Hamish gushed at the time.

In 2019, Hamish took six hours to make Sonny a motorized Velociraptor cake, which was built on a Lego frame.
Sonny’s order had been for the dinosaur’s tail to hit him in the face, and of course Hamish did, as did a large volcano cake on the side.
In 2018, Hamish created a Ghostbusters-themed green ghost slime cake that spewed “ectoplasm” in the form of bright green frosting.
Comedian Zoe’s wife also took to Instagram at the time to share a photo of the aftermath of the slime, which showed the toddler covered in green slime.
Three years ago, the radio-funny made an elaborate Disney-themed cake for his son Sonny’s third birthday, featuring Mack the truck from the movie Cars.
When Sonny was two, Hamish made a Thomas The Tank Engine cake for the toddler.
