Yes, that's right. Rainbow-coloured cream cheese toppings that can be slathered on toast and in sandwiches.

The 26-year-old mastermind told Teen Vogue: 'I've been trying to incorporate red beets into as many creations as possible, ever since I realized that they can turn just about anything into the most ridiculously beautiful shade of hot pink.'

So, how exactly does she create such multicolored spreads?

I was using beet cream cheese to make colorful pink toast, and then it occurred to me that I could probably make additional colors of cream cheese using natural ingredients.

'From there, I created five different colors and just experimented putting them on toast different ways. I had the colors separated on the toast and then some of the colors ran together, and I thought, 'wow that actually looks pretty cool!' So, I took a chopstick and mixed all of the colors together,' she added.

However, Adeline reveals that you don't need to use artificial food colourings to achieve unicorn spreads. Instead she advises using natural pigments such as beetroot, strawberry powder and turmeric root juice to create magical hues that are just as colorful but healthier alternatives to artificial colourings.

'I don't mess around with toxic chemicals in my food, so food coloring was never an option.

I use beet juice for the hot pink, freeze dried strawberry powder for the light pink, turmeric root juice for the orange/yellow, drops of chlorophyll for the light green, spirulina powder for the light blue, and freeze dried blueberry powder for the purple.

The Miami-based photographer has now taken her talents one step further by creating three-dimensional art such as multicoloured flower toast using petals, sesame seeds, spiraled carrots and fig slices.
