Cake Decoration Ideas for the Three Little Pigs
Instead of stacking two round cake layers, you can lay three round cakes side by side to create three pig faces. You'll need to bake four round cakes and cut one into six wedges, for the ears. To prepare a base for this display, cover a sturdy piece of cardboard with aluminum foil. Lay each of the three "heads" side by side. You may need to trim the "ears" at the base so that they lay flush against the heads. Cover each with pink frosting. Add different-colored bandannas underneath their chins. Use a piping tube with a star tip to add a contrasting shade of pink in an oval shape for the nose and in the centers of the ears. Use a round tip and black frosting to draw the eyes and mouth. If you're concerned that you can't sketch it, use images from children's books or the web for guidance.
Three Pigs Cakes
Three Pig Houses Cake
The three little pigs built houses of brick, straw and sticks. Use a sheet cake for a base and frost with green frosting. Erect three small "houses" by placing three cupcakes on top of the sheet. Secure them with skewers.
Three Pigs Photo Cake
Photo cakes are a quick and easy shortcut to cake decorating. You can order edible paper and ink from Internet vendors or upload your image to printers that offer edible printing services. Grocery store bakeries offer photo printing services. Cut a wedge from the center of a sheet cake to make it look like an open book. Lay down two facing pages with text and images from the Three Little Pigs book. Use a piece of gum tape or fruit by the foot as a bookmark. Run a comb through white frosting on the edges to make it look like book pages.
