ow to Make a Pig Cake by Wicked Goodies
The challenge of the creature cake involves striking a balance between realistic and yummy. Here, modeling chocolate combined with fondant makes piggish features possible while yumminess is conveyed in a chocolate buttercream mud puddle, splashes of dark chocolate glaze, truffles, malt balls, and chocolate chip dirt.

The five main tricks to my pig cake design are:

1. Using the open palm of a gloved hand to frost contoured shapes with smooth vanilla buttercream.

2. Creating basic body parts separately that can be fitted together to complete the form

3. Etching fur and features over plastic wrap for an animal skin effect.

4. Brushing the cake with cocoa powder to accentuate the fur and wrinkles.

5. Imagining how a pig would feel if it were a cake.
