I went to http://www.allaboutthecake.net/, picked 3D cakes, and searched through 23 pages of cakes - but there was not one pig.

Could you provide a link to the cake you're referring to.

How is the above pig different than any of the 3D pigs in the CC galleries:
(Does it look anything like any one of these pigs.)

Could my avatar model for you? I would look at the little pig figures people have made and make one you like just bigger.

Hi, I couldn't find the pig cake you were referring to, but here's a link to one of my pig cakes. Was it similar?

I found your "aboutthecake" piggy! I would use a couple 8 or 10 inch rounds stacked and sculpted for the body and maybe the Wilton ball pan for the head. The head-body angle looks tricky though, I would use a dowel all the way through the head and body(45 degree angle) and another one top to bottom, close to the front of the legs as possible( almost 90 degree angle) and use either royal or chocolate or candy melts to help secure it. I'm not an engineer so I don't know if that would actually work, you might have to play with it a bit. Maybe a cake body and foam or Rice Crispie head? Let us know how it goes, good luck!!

Exactly what I would do. (But, I'm not an engineer either.) icon_lol.gif
