Lilly: I LOVE THEM! Ro: I LOVE ‘EM! Lilly: Now we’re gonna pop these in the freezer for 15 minutes Ro: Mmmhmmm

Lilly: Because we don’t want the shape to change while they’re baking Ro: And then we’re also gonna heat our oven to 350 degrees, and bake these Ro: for about 12-13 minutes Lilly: We know stuff! Ro: We know how to make some cookies! Lilly: We know stuff! Lilly: Alright, so our cookies are out of the oven, they’ve cooled, and now what do we do? Ro: Now we are going to decorate! Lilly: Huuuhhhh! Ro: This is my favorite part you guys! Ro: Frosting Unicorn! Ro: So the first thing that we’re gonna do is, draw an outline all the way around Ro: our cookie Now we are going to flood them, this is the fun part! Lilly: That was a technical term! Lilly: I love it, the best kind of flood! Lilly: I don’t remember the last time I concentrated this hard on anything! Lilly: And I just did a word tour… Ro: And it doesn’t need to look perfect because you’re gonna take Ro: a toothpick and smooth it out! Lilly: Alright, so we finished flooding our cookies and we allowed them to crust Lilly: over and now… Ro: Now we are gonna add some more details! Ro: Over here in a little plastic baggie we have some more royal icing, but I Ro: dyed it purple, and this time we’ve got a number 2 tip at the end for a little Ro: bit more control We’re gonna pipe the outline details, in purple, first! Ro: Oh this is doing good! We’re doing good! Lilly: I don’t know, depends what your definition of good is! Ro: It’s that! That’s adorable! Yes! Lilly: My Unicorn is a little chubby, but I still love him for who he is! Lilly: Unicorns come in all shapes and sizes! Ro: Yeah they do! Lilly: Some of them are Rhinos, and that is OK! Lilly: OK, so my Unicorn is like having a bad hair day, it takes after me! Ro: Mine too! Lilly: Alright, now we’ve got a lighter color of royal icing and we’re gonna fill in Lilly: our Unicorn’s mane! Ro: The hair! Lilly: Leggo! Ro: I thought about dying my hair this color

Lilly: This color? This purple? Ro: Mmmmhmmm Lilly: That would look really cool actually! Ro: I just like hair stuff I think Lilly: You know, I’ve never dyed my hair in my life Ro: Have you always had long hair? Lilly: Always, yeah! Ro: Well I guess I bleached it blonde for a charity thing Lilly: Oh girl! Ro: Because I have dark hair, the roots grow back so quick, and it… Lilly: Yeah, a lot of maintenance

Lilly: My hair’s always a disaster, like it will… Ro: And then I tried bangs for awhile… Ro: And I cut ‘em so short, Lilly I had to wear a headband! Lilly: One time I tried combing my hair in the shower Ro: Oh no! Lilly: I had to cut the comb out of my hair because… Ro: Put my hair in deep conditioner, and put it up in a shower cap and I walk around Ro: my house like that for a few hours Lilly: All the guys who don’t care about this watching this are Lilly: like, ‘SHOW THE COOKIES! WE WANT THE COOKIES!’ Lilly: Alright, so now we’re done filling in the manes and we’re gonna use this Lilly: beautiful light pink to make the ears Ro: And, I’ve got black and white Ro: royal icing for the eyeballs and nose! Lilly: Mmmhmm! Lilly: We’re giving the Unicorn senses! Ro: I love it! Lilly: Oh my gosh, this is the closest I’m getting to childbirth right here Ro: She can smell now, she can see now, she’s growing up so fast! Lilly: I know! Lilly: Alright, so we’re almost done, but first we gotta do the magical Lilly: Unicorn Horn! Ro: Yep, we saved the best for last, you guys! Lilly: Mmmhmm! Lilly: Mmmhmm, mmmhmmm! Ro: We’ve got a bunch of colors here, because it’s gonna Ro: be a rainbow horn

We have Pink, purple, blue, green, a lighter green, Ro: and yellow, and we tried to make it look like the emoji that you see, the Ro: Unicorn emoji! Lilly: It’s so pretty! Ro: How are you so fast Lilly? Lilly: I, I, you know what, I don’t know… Lilly: I’m very focused on a task when I do it And that can be a bad thing because Lilly: sometimes when I’m texting people, about something specific, if they Lilly: don’t respond, specifically what I’m asking about, I will totally ignore them Ro: You’re not messing around, you don’t got time for people talking nonsense! Lilly: You tell ‘em Ro! Ro: Yeah Lilly: You should do my voicemail Ro: Leave the messages short and to the point, because she’s busy and she’s a boss Ro: lady and she’s got stuff to do and things to create, don’t be leaving no nonsense! Lilly: You hear that Mom and Dad? Ro: Beep! Both: Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaa! Lilly: These are our Unicorn Emoji Cookies, I love them! Ro: I love them too, they're so cute!
