This little piggy...

So, my mom's best friend Laurie (dubbed Auntie LuLu) posted to Facebook before her birthday saying she wanted this cake.......
It's a pig kit-kat cake!
So, I was talking to my mom, and I said, "We can totally make that!" See, my mom worked in a Jewel-Osco bakery back when she was in her twenties, and I have heard so many stories about that job. I thought that with her baking and decorating experience that we could totally do this. I was right! It took about two hours from start to finish. All you need is...

- 1 cake mix (preferably chocolate) split into two 9" baking pans
- Bake them and let them completely cool!
- Stack the two cakes with icing to hold them together
- Put icing on the top and then sides for glue
- Approx. 30 kit-kats for the sides
- Mold the piggies from pink fondant! 

Our's looked more like a pig pile!

I think this turned out great!
So, met my mom's friend at Red Lobster for dinner to celebrate, and we totally surprised her!!!

This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef. 
This little piggy had none. 
This little piggy cried "wee wee wee" all the way to my belly! JK.
