She placed multiple Cadbury Fingers around the edge of the cake after cutting it into the shape of a fish.

“Now to get my kids to want a fish cake for their next birthdays!!”

To create the fish, the mum simply cut a slice to form an open mouth and placed the piece on the opposite side to form the tail.

She used one giant marshmallow as the eye and stuck the chocolate sticks around the edges.

She then filled the inside of the cake with Smarties.

“Awesome! Must be the easiest and most clever hack ever!” one person wrote.

Woolworths also sell chocolate and caramel-flavoured mud cakes for $4.80.
