If there are two words which never fail to make us happy, they have to be “unicorn” and “toast”.

So you can imagine all the glittery feelings which came upon us when we realised unicorn toast is actually a thing.

Currently there seems to be no set criteria for which food qualifies as unicorn toast and which food does not, but, given its name, one would have to assume that colour (and lots of it) is the ultimate goal.

From healthy avocado-laden varieties to gloriously gooey processed fairy food, check out our favourite examples of unicorn toast below.

We have limited self control as it is when it comes to bread, but the minute it's popped in a toaster, all bets are off.

If you can generally contain yourself around the carby goodness that is a slice of poppyseed loaf, but have never managed to refuse a plate of toast, you're not alone.

According to those in the know – toast scientists obvs – this particular weakness comes down to something known as the Maillard reaction.

The Maillard reaction is a chemical process which takes place between the sugars and amino acids in bread when it is toasted. 

As the process continues, a variety of new compounds are formed which ultimately produce a flavour most of us can't get enough of.

According to a report in Cosmopolitan, the most appealing among these are known as furanones which are responsible for the uber-comforting feeling you get from a mountain of hot, buttered toast.

Oh, and then there's that unmistakable smell…


If you are constantly burning toast every single morning, we hear you. The dread of watching the slice pop up as a charcoal-covered mess can be somewhat awful. 

But then this ultra-modern design has been made. The contemporary toaster has been formed by Stumpf Studio, and is only a prototype for now, but the final product has some serious potential. 

It is fitted with bamboo wood and glass panels so you can see exactly how well-done your toast is. And there's even a touch screen timer and temperature metre for you to make your perfect piece of toast. 

Some are referring to the design as the Eco Toaster and it's in a series of sustainable kitchen appliances by James Stumpf.

We're just hoping it hits the market soon so we can kiss burnt toast goodbye!


If you've been using a toaster every morning, we have news for you: you're making toast WRONG.

Yep, it's true.

Raquel Pelzel, Toasting Queen, released a new book called, Toast: A Cookbook, and in it she explains all the ins and outs of making the perfect piece of toast. 

Speaking to Woman's Health, Raquel admits she uses a grill 90 percent of the time when she's making toast at home. 

"This method of toasting adds the loveliest extra dimension of singed flavour from the grilling element," she says.

Plus, if you love big slices of toast (but get annoyed because they won't fit in the toaster), you can now make golden-brown delicious slices easily!

Here is Ms Pelzel's tried-and-true method:

1. Drizzle one side of the bread with either oil (olive, grapeseed, your pick!) or softened butter, then season with a few pinches of salt. 

2. Position the rack on the top tier of the grill, 7 to 8 centimetres from the grilling element, and preheat to high. 

3. Set the bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and grill until golden-brown (about two or three minutes). 

4. Flip the bread slices, and toast the other side for about another minute or so. 

5. Remember to watch the bread closely as you don't want it to burn!

Et viola! Perfect toast!

Ok, we know that it's a little bit more complicated and time-consuming than popping bread into a toaster, but hey, the results are SO worth it – especially the next time you want to make avocado toast!


Who knew the best life advice could come from a toddler? The point we love the most…’don’t be scared when you die’. Watch as this three year old dishes the best wedding toast imaginable!
