Kaylee’s 10th Birthday Cake

Kaylee turned 10 and she’s been showing pigs in the farm shows the past couple years.  Her theme was pigs in shades, she wanted a pig cake, so she got show pigs with style. A delightful pageant of glorious fatty pigginess, with only one winner.

 

IMAG0945Using the sports ball cake mold, I baked up 3 flavors. 1 cake mix per mold(both halves). These needed to bake for 40 minutes because they are so thick.

Then, placed the bottom half of ice cream cones with My Cake Frosting, around the bottom of the dowel for the legs. Cutting a hole in the center of each half, slid the cake onto the dowels, placing frosting between the layers and filled in the hole top.

I then, frosted the bodies with cake frosting and smoothed it out as best I could.

 

 

 

I gave each body some spots, used party favor kazoo lips for theirs.

I cut some ears and eyes out of craft foam pieces. Snouts were strawberry marshmallows, and eye lashes and accents out of black frosting.

I found some party favor accessories: rings, ear rings, sun glasses, necklace and crown for the winner.

Created prize ribbons out of craft foam as well.

Topping it off with marshmallow lights around the runway stage.

 

For the Finishing touch, a pig is not a pig if they don’t have that curly tail. These were created with fun curly birthday candles.
