This is a favourite cupcake recipe of mine. When i am out of idea which recipe to follow i will always go back to the basic. This is a basic cupcake choice for me that i get from Nigella's book 'FEAST'. It is a gift from hubby.
简单的小杯蛋糕食谱是最受欢迎的. 而一个是简单又肯定成功的食谱哦 ;)
每每不知道要选择做哪个小杯蛋糕时我总是会做这个来自英国的性感甜点女神的Nigella Lawson的食谱. 她的书'FEAST', 是宝贝'爸'送的 :p

This is how i do my pink piggy ^_^
From left to right
Prepared .. 1 big round ball for the head (pink)
1 medium oblong ball for the body (pink)
4 small round balls for leg (pink)
1 small round ball for the nose..flatten a little (white)
3 tiny round balls for the eyes and mouth..roll long (black)
2 triangle for the ears (pink)
1 small round ball for the tails..roll long (pink) (it is not in the picture :p)
Brush some water on the top of the oblong
Stick the big round head onto the oblong piece.
Turn the fondant upside down. Brush water onto the oblong piece where legs are to be stick on
This is the first piece of small round leg sticking on the oblong piece
Repeat stick the rest of the legs
Turn the piggy body upright back into position (legs are on the ground now) Brush some water into the head
Stick the flatten white piece onto the head
Make a small hole on the nose for the piggy nostril
(use the fondant tool that have a round ball on..if you don't have you can use a narrow chopstick or a skewer)
This is the ears, eyes, mouth and tail
Brush some water on the head and stick the triangle piece on
Flip the triangle forward and press gentle with the fondant tool ( tool with a round ball)
Brush some water (very little) at where eyes are to be stick on and stick the prepared black fondant on
Brush a little water at the back and stick the pink rolled long fondant on and make a swirl for the tails. Press lightly to secure it.
wait..wait ..wait..almost there.
Brush some water on the prepared cupcake.
Stick the piggy on. Press lightly to secure it.
Use some yellow fondant, rolled into little little tear droplets for wheat and a long tiny one for the stem. Assemble ... stick the long stem at the side of the cupcake, then stick the little tear droplets along the side of the stem.
This are the rest of the fondant cupcakes that i will share the 'how to do' soon..^_^
