The mum posted photos of the cake transformation on Facebook and said the cake was much larger than she expected once it had been completed.

She bought a 30-something cake topper for the dessert which she paired with a golden palm frond as the key decorations.

The cake was coloured in rose pink, lavender and gold tones, which impressed the others in the group.

‘Your cake has left me speechless, just how? What an excellent cake designer,’ one woman applauded on the post.

The woman posted a series of pictures, including recipe screenshots, to explain exactly how she managed to decorate the cakes so well.

‘Thankyou for giving such good instructions, so people like me can attempt a hack like this,’ one woman marveled.

How can I pull off this mud cake hack? 

Step 1 – Work out how tall you want the cake and buy the correct amount of mud cakes

Step 2 – Have show stopping pieces like a beautiful cake topper or palm frond

Step 3 – Work out the colour scheme, for this cake it is lavender, rose and gold

Step 4 – Organise extra decorations, like dipping balls in coloured chocolate, making mini chocolate bars or heart-cakes using silicon moulds

Step 5 – Make a sturdy meringue buttercream to insure the icing twirls stand up properly

Step 6 – Stack and ice the cakes, then add the other edible decorations 

Step 7 – Add gold luster, the cake topper, greenery and sprinkles to finish 

Other pretended to be upset with the amazing effort.

‘This group has no room for actual talent, go away,’ one mum laughed. 

The mum used some of the cake in heart-shaped moulds and said the cake was ‘so moist’ she just rolled it up inside without needing to use icing to stick it together.

She also used silicon moulds to make tiny chocolate blocks and used different sized chocolate balls covered in pink and purple chocolate to add to the the effect of the tower.

She used different shades of pink icing on the cake and the decorations

With others agreeing it is ‘the best they have seen’ in the group.
