The Morning Show's Kylie Gillies made her son the birthday cake of our dreams.

For most mothers, making a birthday cake for their child is a last-minute panic.

Not so for Kylie Gillies, whose cake-making skills are apparently up there with Adriano Zumbo.

For her son Gus‘s birthday, Kylie and her mother created a Pinterest-inspired Skittles cake (that also appears to somehow defy gravity).

And the people of Instagram are just as impressed as we are.

“I couldn’t make that if my life depended on it!” wrote one impressed commenter.

“Looks like something out of Zumbo’s Just Desserts,” said another.

If you need another look to work out how the hell that packet of Skittles is staying upright, Kylie posted another snap of the cake (oh, and her family celebrating too, I suppose).


…..and here’s the fam. Secondary to the cake!!!! #gus #14 #skittlecake

We only have one favour to ask – if anyone works out what dark magic is behind this cake, could they please inform us?

If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of making a cake like Kylie’s, this two-ingredient chocolate cake might be more your speed.
