Percy Pig Cupcakes

This week, my team organised a bake off competition for charity! I really wanted to get involved, but knew that I was going to be pretty busy as I’m going away with my boyfriend this weekend and had a lot to organise, so decided to just do something really simple. My sister came up with a great idea…Percy Pig cupcakes! Who doesn't love these cute little pigs - and what could be better than combining them with a cupcake?!

Percy Pig Cupcakes


Perfectly cute but perfectly simple, these are just plain vanilla cupcakes (I use the Hummingbird basic recipe) with vanilla butter cream coloured with food dye. Use red food dye – I tried pink, but it just doesn’t give enough colour!

I then got my little pig heads and tails, stuck them into the icing and put them in the fridge overnight to set.

What do you think? Judging by some of these entries I don’t think they’re going to win – clearly I work among a lot of wannabe bakers – but I think they’re a lot of fun all the same!
