1. Unicorns are real (and edible) – Cloud Cakes

Nothing gets more magical than unicorns, and nothing gets prettier than unicorns at Cloud Cakes – a dessert and snack stall at Denpasar.

This unicorn-themed establishment has a unicorn in its logo, and works hard to live up to it – many of their pastries feature that elusive animal.

Not only do they have a unicorn cake (with a cone for a horn), there’s also a special drink that includes a paper unicorn peeking out from a cloud of candy floss.

That’s not all they have to offer though. Cloud Cakes also makes a series of pastel-coloured pastries, including rainbow cakes, donuts, and even shaved ice!

Just looking at the pictures alone are enough to give us a toothache – so we completely understand if you’re a manly man, and don’t appreciate beautiful horses with horns on their heads.

But can you resist the Grilled Cheese Sandwich that is grilled to perfection, and can you reject these golden brown fried oreos – that both have a unicorn printed on their packagings?

During one of these hot and humid days, the best refreshment is a cool treat.

The best thing about it? You are free to mix and match whatever you want! Pick a cup, make your own combination of frozen yogurt and topping, put it on a scale and pay by weight.

If you want to experiment, try the green tea or durian flavour. And if you prefer to stick to the classics, the basic plain yogurt is delicious on its own, just like chocolate or coconut.

Make it a healthy and guilt-free snack by adding fruit, granola and sunflower seeds.
