Top 10 Funny and Creative Pigs in mud Cakes

First up, I will start by saying “THANK YOU” to everyone who has read, liked and shared one of my most popular posts “Top 10 Kit Kat Cakes” because it is thanks to that one post that a lot of you reading this will be following me. While I can’t do another kit kat cake top 10, I’ve decided to expand on one particular version of it…

10 – The Original

This was the first pigs in mud cake to go viral anywhere on the web and without it, all of the ones there-forth would never exist, so I had to include it out of respect to the original maker.

9 – The Pigs Whiskers!?!

This cake maker loved the look of the “pigs in mud” style of cake, but her love of cats just got right in the way so she decided to make a “cats in milk cake!” This is a fantastic little spin on the original design and would have been much, much higher if it had come with a making guide or recipe, which sadly it doesn’t. But that doesn’t stop it looking amazing.

This is what I call raising the bar! This amazing Birthday cake is a 3 tier cake with the pigs in mud on top, held in a fence made from Cadbury’s Finger biscuits and Fudge Fingers! If that doesn’t get your mouth-watering then the ganache topping is sure to finish you off.

7 – The Designer

Without question, the best bit about this one is the loose chocolate shavings on top of the cake. 2 things make this cake stand out for me, the fact that the cake base was just brought in a shop meaning that there is hope we could all make a pig in mud cake, and the step by step picture guide to finishing it! It really is easy to follow and very well thought out.

Sure it isn’t a massive spin-off from the original design, but the white chocolate kit kat fence really makes it stand out from the crowd.

Pigs in mud cakes do not get any better looking than this, this work of art was done by a baker called “Lambshack” and definitely looks amazing. It would have been my number 1, but there is no making guide or recipe in the link, but boy does it look good.

This pigs in mud cake is very much a Charlotte-style of cake (as seen in my own post “Top 10 Best Charlotte Cakes”) and once again it does look amazing but no recipe or making guide puts me off it a little.

After seeing my top 10 kit kat cakes post radhika25 decided to make this one. The twist with this one is that the maker didn’t have kit kat’s so decided to use Redondo chocolate cookies, I thought it was a great little spin on the original idea and looks even tastier!

You might have thought that without the chocolate bar fence, to hold the pigs in mud in it would look a bit rubbish, well it is time to think again because this looks far from being rubbish and, in fact, looks rather amazing! I feel that the lack of a solid chocolate fence (no matter what it is made from) makes it look even better! Once again no recipe or guide.

There might be an argument that this pigs in mud cake are more like the cats from the number (9) and that they are in fact in milk! But for argument aside, this is one of the best spins on the original design and looks beautiful. Sadly there is no recipe of making guide, but then again you just need to change a few things from the original recipe to match it. Simply stunning.

  2. I’ve made 2 pigs in mud cakes, they are fairly simple to do and really impress people!! I really enjoyed making them, especially the one for my friends parents wedding anniversary ‘Phil and June as happy as pigs in mud for 40 years’ 🙂 x

  3. Thanks! Glad you liked it. I think I will make the Kit Kat base and fill it with edible fruit flowers for my daughters birthday in August. I’ll post a picture for my blog when I do.

  4. I never heard of Pigs In Cake. What makes me laugh are the ones with the tail sticking up – a kind of bottoms up. I really like #5, reminds me of the big dog in the sink. Very clever. However, I also like the one with no fence, and as someone else mentioned, the liquid chocolate really gives it special touch. Another winner for you.

  5. These are great! I think the one without the fence is quite cool because they’ve given it an added gooey mud sloshy on the pigs! Maybe I should try a dogs in lakes with sticks in their mouths cake… what do you reckon?! 🙂 Wonder if anyone’s every tried?

  6. 😀 So glad to hear that Russell and thank you for allowing me to be myself. Always great to visit your blog and your beautiful posts. 🙂 *hugs*

  7. Whahahah Russell! Oh, you never seem to amaze me! I love this and although I don’t think I will ever be able to eat them as they are so cute, they sure looks delicious. I think I’ll eat the cake and just spare the cute piggies. LOL! Love your captions and post! Thanks for sharing. 😀

  8. *LOL* to be honest I never know if i am going to find 10 of them when I start writing the post. I have just under a hundred posts that might never be finished. It doesn’t always work.

  9. HAHAHAHA!! this is so crazy! … Like how on earth does anyone come up with the idea of top ten pigs in mud cake!? XD

  10. Love it!!!!
    What’s missing here is one made from green tea KitKats (a special Japanese edition)… “dragon(s in) soup” rather than pigs in mud spring to mind, lol. Somebody make me one!!!

  11. In fact it all started in Japan! They have a massive range of kit kats and often makes cakes very much like these. And oddly the first pigs in mud cake was made in the US, it is just the latest fad of cakes I think.

  12. I have to ask but I don’t want to appear ignorant. Is putting kitkats and fingers on the outside of cakes a usual thing in England? Neither me nor my daughter have every seen it here in the states. The cakes look great, don’t get me wrong. It is just that my daughter just graduated with a culinary degree and she never heard of it. Please let me know. If you are broadening our horizons I can think of no better way to do it than with a good cake! 🙂

  13. Sounds like a lot of trouble to go through to make such a fancy cake. Maybe i’ll wait for someone to make one for me before i violate it lol lol

  14. These are fantabulous, but obviously, these folks have way too much time on their hands if they can spend all this time decorating – – please send them over to help with landscaping projects…Thanks! LOL

  15. I just love this post, but the cat cake is amazing is so like cats to get up to no good and go exploring. Thanks for always posting such great different subjects.. I thank you for always making me smile when I see you posts.. Ivan
