Incredible Edible Book Cake Contest

The girls decided even though they couldn't be there to participate in Grandma's grand opening of her bookstore The Purple Cow they still wanted to make a cake based on a book. One of our absolute favorite books is The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas. It has to be read by dad because he does all the voices and sound effects. The pig uses man toys like pneumatic drills and dynamite to destroy the wolves' houses.Debbie, Laura, and Abby each helped frost the pig and put on its eyes, nostrils, and mouth (which is a Flying W). The instructions for the pig is here. Sara and Marie did the wolf cupcakes. We did a variation of the instructions here. I think they did a great job!
