It’s the iconic Woolworths mud cake that has been a staple on the majority of Aussie kitchen tables for birthday parties for years now.

But now, one mum has completely transformed the delicious $4.80 sweet treat, by making it into an ombre wedding cake which looks like it costs a lot more than it does.

For just $20, 31-year-old Vanessa from Brisbane, who goes by the name messynessy89 on Tik Tok, has created a stunning creation, using just three cakes, some icing and artificial flowers for the top.

She uploaded a video of the process to her Tik Tok, showing her using three mud cakes from Woolworths to create a single-tier look.

She puts filling in between each layer before stacking them on top of each other and then smooths out the whole cake by coating it with a thin layer of frosting.
