Ingenious Mum Makes Three Tiered Wedding Cake Out Of 11 Woolies Mud Cakes

Weddings are bloody expensive. There's no denying that nearly every aspect of the big day will dig deep into your pockets and make you wish you never got hitched.

Sure, it's supposed to be the best day of your life, but when it all adds up, the typical wedding will set you back a lot. But that's if you don't find avenues to cut corners.

Which is exactly what one woman from Victoria, Australia did when her friend asked her to create a wedding cake.

Silvina Werner was tasked with making a cake for her friend's nuptials and turned to the humble Woolies mud cake for inspiration.

Nearly every Aussie has, at one point or another, devoured one of these bad boys, so you know it's perfect for every occasion. But for a wedding?

Silvina bought 11 mud cakes and stacked them on top of each other to create an incredibly delicious looking wedding cake. After chucking on a bit of icing over the top of it to give it that 'wedding' feel, it was complete.

And voilà!

A stunning three-tiered wedding cake that looks like all the others and it only set Ms Werner back $56.80. All that was needed was some flowers for decoration and you've got this result.

Posting her creation to the Woolies and Coles Mud Cake Hack Facebook page, she was flooded with comments and messages from people who were amazed at her cake.

Speaking to news.com.au, Silvina said: "I was extremely nervous about making it, and it took me all day to get it done until I was happy with it. I'm just a mum who likes to decorate cakes, I am no professional baker."

To get the cake looking just right, the crafty Victorian woman fused two cakes together in a tin and froze them.

That was the base, which she then repeated four times, using eight of the mud cakes to form the first tier.

Then it was just a process of repetition but making it smaller each time to achieve that classic wedding tiered cake.

According to Easy Weddings, the typical wedding cake can range from $500-1,000 - so the fact that Silvina managed to make it for a tenth of the cost is bloody brilliant.

Apparently the friend whom Silvina made it for was amazed with the end result and others on the Facebook page reckon it'll be the talk of the time for years to come.
