The humble $5 Woolies mud cake has once again proven itself the ultimate party staple.
In recent months, the mud cake has been creatively used as the base for a number of cakes, ranging from wedding cakes to animal cakes, and even a pinata-inspired cake.
We asked 14 women to share photos of their most creative mud cake hacks with Mamamia.
Here’s what they shared:
A wedding cake
Victoria mum Silvina Werner used 11 cakes from Woolworths and a tub of Betty Crocker icing to create her friend's wedding cake for just $57.
A geode cake
Shona stacked two Woolies mud cakes and crushed clear mint lollies which she dyed purple to create this mesmerising geode cake.
