I have someone inquiring about 160 cupcakes decorated with pigs on them. She's unsure if she wants little 3D pigs or the cupcake itself decorated like a pig. (Bizarre wedding cupcakes if you ask me icon_confused.gif )

I have no idea how to make such a creature though so am unsure what to say for price. I also want to get a rough idea of how long they'd take me to make to see if it's even remotely possible. So anyone know of a quick easy way to make a pig?

Thanks icon_smile.gif

Easiest is to make the cupcake into just the pig's head/face. Marshmallow for snout, cut-up marshmallows or pink wafer cookies for ears, small dark candies or piped dots for eyes and nostrils. If you search "pig cupcakes" on Google Images you'll see a ton of examples.

Or there are traditional molded candies shaped like pigs...sugar pigs, peppermint pigs. Could just buy those and stick on top.
