Hi Lovelies!

I had a LOT of comments on Bebe’s cake so I thought I’d pop how I hacked two Woolworths pre-made mud cakes into his birthday cake in under 30 mins for under $25.00!

Bebe didn’t want a party this year, so we surprised him with a few friends and family to come over and cut a cake with him. His Dad and Godmother took him out to the arcade for the day and I stayed home with Bambino, so I knew whatever I made had to be quick and easy!

Last minute I decided to do a Kmart Rainbow Balloon Garland just to make it a little bit more special for him, it was pretty easy to make and only $6.00! I’m so glad I did because his face when he saw everyone, the cake and balloons was priceless! Plus they made all the photos look amazing.

 

STEP 1:

Start with your basics, I highly recommend refrigerating the cakes so the are firm and cold to start with.

Woolworths Chocolate Mud Cake $4.80

Woolworths White Chocolate Mud Cake $4.80

Woolworths Betty Crocker Creamy Deluxe Chocolate Fudge Frosting $4.00

Woolworths Dollar Sweets Sprinkles $3.50

Spotlight Over The Top Edible Slime $7.70

 

STEP 2:

Remove wrapping from cakes and stack on top of each other. Cut a circle out of top layer only, and keep top for later.

 

STEP 3:

Empty the entire container of Edible Slime into the hole.

STEP 4:

Trim the cut out cake so that it fits flat over the slime. I won’t lie to you, this was the step I doubted myself. It looked messy and I thought oh great I’ve ruined the cake ha ha!

 

STEP 5:

Don’t worry though, I redeemed myself with the icing. Use a butter knife dipped in hot water and literally spoon out the icing from the container and smooth onto the cake. So easy! Using a hot knife will make sure it spreads evenly and doesn’t stick to the knife and cake and make mess.

 

STEP 6:

Add some sprinkles, some candles and decorations. Bebe had asked for a chocolate army cake, so I raided his army men and added them to the cake stand. He was happy and they were free!

 

TA DA!

Have you ever tried doing a cake hack?
