This one is just a basic Madeira cake, cooked in a 4 pint pudding basin. The cooking took FOREVER. But on the bright side, I could actually see when the cake was cooked, through the bowl.
Now, I really should plan ahead when I make cakes, but I completely forgot to buy any jam for the cake. So, I looked around the kitchen and found this.
I used the Dusky Pink colour, as I don't think a flesh coloured pig would have been very appealing, really. Surprisingly, it didn't take too long, and I ended up with quite a nice piece of fondant, which draped over the cake WITHOUT CRACKING!!!
For the mud, I used the same method that I used for my Easter chocolate cake. The chocolate ganache recipe can be found here. I added dark chocolate chips, just so it didn't taste like the Easter cake.
i dont even like chocolate that much..
It turned out really thick (I may have beaten it too much), but otherwise, the cake was really nice. And it tasted good too :)
