Pigs in the mud cake! A surprise cake for my brothers birthday and I have been busy making fondant pigs all week. But it was worth the trouble, because my brother loved it.
‘Pigs in the mud cake’ is an Internet cult classic; found in numerous versions all over the web. Last summer, I made one of these cakes for the first time. My brother saw some pictures of the cake and said that he would love to get such a cake one day; so I decided to make one for his birthday.
First, I baked a chocolate cake which I cut into layers. I have used 2 types of fillings – raspberry mousse and chocolate mousse fillings. Afterwards, I frosted the sides and the top of the cake with chocolate ganache.
I purchased 95 cm / 37 inches of KitKat chocolate bars to cover the side of the cake – I think it was approx. 12 chocolate bars (this is the size of the normal KitKat bars here in Denmark – I have no idea if it is the same standard size bars all over the world!).
The cake has a diameter of 30 cm/ 12 inches. I placed the KitKat bars while the ganache was still moist and sticky so that the ganache act as a glue. The KitKat bars make it look like a barrel surrounding the mud for the pigs’ bath.
In addition, I have tied the cake with a ribbon to secure the KitKat bars. I added a tiny bit of ganache a couple of places on the back of the ribbon so that it sticks to the KitKats.
I made the pigs out of pink fondant. I used this excellent tutorial for the pigs. You need to make 5 pigs:
- 3 pig bottoms (hope that my colleagues don’t ask what I do in my spare time – ‘I make pig bottoms!’ 😆 )
- 1 bathing pig
- 1 paddling pig
And here is the result:
