Unicorn scones

Evie's winning cream tea scones made by Juliet Sear

This fun recipe has the addition of a rainbow-effect unicorn horn made from clotted cream. You have to use a whole pot to whip and pipe with, any less and it’s too difficult to do the piping. Any leftover can be saved in the fridge. You’ll need extra for filling the scones unless you prefer to pipe some of the rainbow effect cream in your scones!
