You may recall seeing these cute little cupcakes in a link up, and then a Friday feature here at Bacon Time. I just loved these piggies by Craptastic. I am the baker of the house, and I always make special cakes for everyones b-day. Well I thought it was time for me to make a special one of my own. So that’s what I did. I made myself a cute piggy cake for my 34th that was in July. I know it’s a little odd making your own cake, but my family knows how much fun I have when I bake. Thanks again Craptastic for the inspiration. Hope you like my Bacon Time twist to this recipe.
Well this was a very easy cake to do.
Here is what I used:
1 prepared round strawberry cake
1 prepared strawberry cupcake
1 strawberry Marshmallow (cut in half diagonally for ears)
red sugar crystals
black gel icing
black chocolate sprinkles
2 pink star Marshmallows (left over from the 4th of July for flowers)
yellow sprinkles (for flower center)
1 plastic cocktail fork (to secure cupcake nose)
There probably would be easier and nicer ways to do this, but I was determined to make the cake with only things I had on hand. I used a little frosting and icing on the marshmallow star/flowers to keep the sugar crystal and sprinkles on.
I used only one cake mix and filled 12 cupcakes half full, the remaining batter went into making the round cake.
Here is to 34 hopefully being a great year!
You all helped make 33 amazing. Thank you again for all of the birthday wishes.
Wish you all could have enjoyed some cake with me.
