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.
5 Main Tricks to This Pig Cake Design
Use the open palm of a gloved hand to frost contoured shapes with smooth vanilla buttercream
Create basic body parts separately that can be fitted together to complete the form.
Etch fur and features over plastic wrap for an animal skin effect.
Brush the cake parts with cocoa powder to accentuate the fur and wrinkles.
5. Imagine how a pig would feel if it were a cake.
