Spit roast pig cake
My friend was having a texas BBQ themed party and asked me to do a cake for it. Well what bbq would it be without a pig on the spit...mine didn't have the spit but I wanted that kind of feel for my pig. I found another that had been done by Michelle Wibowo from Michelles sugar art and thought I would give it a try. There are a few things I didn't like at the end but over all for my first attempt at something like this I was pretty happy. The pig is all cake except the nose which is rice krispies, everything else is also edible but are the real things so the lettuce is really lettuce etc...oooh except the apple, that is gumpaste. Seeing as the cake was not for any competition or anything I did not see the point in making the veggies and such from gumpaste as it would have also made the cake more expensive for my client.
