swimming pigs chocolate kit kat cake


This is a cake that I have seen popping up every where online today. It’s literally gone viral. I think it’s because of the scandalous pig bums poking up above the chocolate swimming pool LOL.

I was able to track down the recipe… it’s a translation and found in the description of the facebook image. You’ll have to click the “read more” link to see the english version of the recipe. Just thought you would enjoy this!

Here’s the recipe link if you wanna make this yourself…

  1. I can’t find the english version of the Swimming Pigs Kit Kat Chocolate Cake.

    Where can I find it at?

    Thank you,


    You will need
    A 20cm sponge cake
    2x 200 g milk chocolate bars
    250ml of cream
    Filling of choice for your pie. Layer of jam/ tinned cherries or such, and a layer of creme patisserie , cream or butter icing
    3x five packet kitkats
    1 packet of light pink marzipan. ( I’m thinking you’ll have to use almond paste and food colouring for this or maybe get creative with some pink marshmallows? )
    Big knife
    Tooth pick or skewer
    Flat plate or board to put your cake on

    Start by making your pigs. Do your own thing as there are no instructions for this.
    Put your cream in a pan over low heat
    Keep stirring until it just starts to boil. In between break the chocolate bars in pieces.
    When the cream is almost boiling take it from the heat and gradually add chocolate. Keep stirring until you have a nice smooth mass and then leave to cool stirring every now and again.
    Cut your sponge in half and put your fillings of choice in.
    Put your cake , at this stage, on a lazy Susan or something else easy enough to rotate . The sides are going to be covered with your chocolate and you don’t want your serving plate/board to get messy.
    Break your kitkats in two and have them ready.
    If your chocolate sauce has cooled at thickened to a custard consistency you can start smearing it on the sides of your cake. Use a spatula or the back if a knife to do this. Once you’ve smeared it all around you can stick your kitkats on. This can be a bit tricky so place them on a slight angle against the cake. When you have gone right around quickly tie your ribbon around the cake. This will pull the kitkats up straight against your cake.
    When the left over chocolate sauce is only just fluid pour it over the top of the cake. MAKE SURE IT IS NOT TOO THIN WHEN YOU DO THIS OR IT WILL SEEP BETWEEN THE KITKATS.
    Before it totally sets place your little piggies on the chocolate
    Place in the fridge to set.
    After an hour or so you can place the cake gently on your serving plate.
    Eet smakelijk. Bon appetit . Enjoy

    Well you get the idea.

  3. I am going to use this for a shower cake. I plan on putting babies in the chocolate with the caption, ‘dont throw out the baby with the bath water’

  4. That is a marvelous idea. Let us know how it turns out. I guess you can do a lot with this basic idea. I would have to use a different kind of cake, though. I do not like sponge cake.

  5. I love this cake! Instead I made a Mississippi Mud Cake and added two more pigs. One coming down a slide into the mud pen and another standing at the top of the slide waiting his turn. So cute!

  6. I made piggies just like these out of sugar cookie dough and put them on cupcakes. They were a riot! I adore this cake and am thinking of a reason to throw a “If you give a pig a pancake…” party so I can make this!!!!

  7. Here is an easy Marzipan recipe if you want to make your own pigs

    Marzipan Recipe

    Things You’ll Need
    1 lb. blanched and peeled almonds
    1 lb. powdered sugar
    2 egg whites
    Vanilla extract

    Place the almonds into a food processor and process them until they are finely ground. Place the almonds in a large bowl.

    Add two drops of vanilla extract and the powdered sugar to the almonds. Knead in the egg whites a small amount at a time. Knead until the ingredients are mixed and the dough is smooth and pliable.

    Roll the dough into a large log. Cover it in plastic wrap to store.

    Tips & Warnings
    Marzipan will store for up to six months if it is wrapped tightly and kept in a cool dry place. Do not freeze marzipan.

  9. Even though I’ll be turning 38 in July, I’m

    going to insist on having this cake for my birthday! I love the idea of the Mississippi Mud Pie. I live in South Africa, so does anyone have any suggestions of which website I can get a good recipe from?


  10. […] And I do fine until somebody like Theo (a 3-time guest blogger on Yummyfoto: post 1, post 2, post 3) rolls back from ITALY, having graduated from GASTRONOMY SCHOOL, and reminds me that it can also be awesome and fun to be anal retentive. Like when it comes to replicating a version of this cake. […]

  11. Love pigs…everyone I know wants to make this cake for me…now I have recipe..think I’ll make it myself…lol

  12. I have just made this cake and am in no way a competent cake maker! The recipe is so easy to follow, I bought ready to roll baby pink icing and it took me twenty minutes to make the pigs! Only tip I would give is use egg white as a glue for ears, nose etc so they stick on! Thanks for sharing recipe!

  13. Saw the pig cake I’m going to change it up a little…clear plastic cups chocolate pudding & mini marshmellows

  14. Has anyone tried to make this cake with chocolate finger biscuits instead of kitkats (as they are much cheaper) Would be great to see some pics, or find out if you had any problems..

  15. finally the recipe!!! fell in love with this when i saw it in fb and got stuck on how to make the piggy:)

  16. I really need all the piggies for my mud cake how do o go about getting them from you please?

  17. Here is 2 links how to make it. If you want to make it faster just buy cake mix and make your cake that way. Then buy chocolate icing heat it up in the microwave (this is what the piggy’s are swimming in). I do it 10 sec. at a time because you don’t want to over heat it and keep it a thick. You only want it soft enough to make it look like mud. When your cake cools cut them on the top to make them flat. This prevents them from spiting and falling apart. You can use some chocolate icing on the bottom of the kit kats. Put it on the back side so you don’t see the icing. The icing acts like glue so your not pulling your hair out trying to keep them on while putting a ribbon around it. Wal-mart sells already made acing you can do your piggy’s with. They are in flat sheets, but you can ball them up and smooth it.

  18. I love this idea and you could use some mashmellow peeps on top like ducks on the water. For that baby shower you could always do differetn color icing like blue for babies to be in – doesn’t have to be chocolate. You could also dip the kit kat wafers in different color pastel chocolate bark for more easter type cake. You really got me going now…lol. THANKS :)

  19. Sorry, I can only answer one of your questions. To get the kit kat cake u but some king size kit kat candy bars, and brake them in half and put them around the cake. Sorry I couldn’t answer the other question about the pigs cuz that’s my question too! Enjoy!

  20. Do you have a spam problem on this website;I also am a blogger,

    trade methods with otjer folks, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
