Mele Kalikimaka!

Our local church group had a Christmas Luau this last Saturday. I am on the Activities Committee and volunteered to make a "Roasted Pig" cake. I've been inspired by friends (Charly mainly...see her blog for more cakes) and by watching Ace of Cakes, a show on the Food Network.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first attempt with fondant! I crushed some cinnamon graham crackers to make sand around the base. I used three cake boxes, two boxes of fondant, and one snack package rice crispy treat (for the nose and mouth). You can't really see it, but it also has a little curly tail!

It was a BIG hit at the party. Everyone wanted a "piece of the pig."
Now they want me to teach a class for the ladies on how to make a pig cake. What have I gotten myself into? Oh well. I had fun and will definitely do more some time but only for special occasions. hee hee
