As a Busy Mum of 3 Monkeys I love to make my own cakes but have very limited time these days to do so. And to be quite honest even my Packet mix cakes turn out quite dry. Thank god for the Cake Hack! You know, the $5 Mud Cakes from Coles that you jazz up and turn into a Cake that looks like you put in a lot more time and effort than you actually did!

This was my First Cake Hack attempt, Baby Paige was only 6 months old and I had 3 Birthdays looming in a 3 week period so I thought I would give it a go. 

I brought 2 x White Chocolate Mud cakes and peeled of their paper layers. I added a layer of Betty Crocker Vanilla Frosting to the First Cake. Than flipped the other Cake on top. This will be the base of your cake. Cover the cake in the Frosting. 

Now for the Icing. We are Huge Nutella fans in this house and I thought why not?! Removed the silver seal and heated in the microwave for 30 secs to give it a thinner consistency. I stirred it with a Knife and poured it evenly over the cake - it was starting to come together!

Now to Decorate! To cover the bottom edges I added Maltesers. Than for the top I added some Large Lollipops , more Maltesers, M & M's and Wafer Sticks. And to Personalise it some more I cut out the Number '10' from Green Card and added it to some Wooden Skewers. Voila! A Quick Delicious Cake fit for the 10 year old Birthday Boy!

 My son was Pretty Amazed on the day and I was super proud of how quick it was to make. And most importantly, it tasted Delicious!
