I don't know about you, but I would rather have a cupcake than a piece of cake. I prefer the single serving size. Makes me feel better about indulging in more. I also feel like you can put more frosting on a cupcake, than you can a cake. The frosting most times is the best part! Lets not forget how CUTE cupcakes are. You are able to decorate them easier and they just look.....pretty!
Here is the link to PW's Pig Cake: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/01/pig-cake/
There is where you will find step by step instructions and BEAUTIFL pictures of her Pig Cake (still dreaming of a DSLR!).
I found the cake had almost a tropical taste to them. The cake itself is extremely light and airy. The frosting is light as well, being that it's a whipped frosting. They are a perfect combination!
