Would you eat a cake that looks like a dirty ashtray? Yes, you heard us – a big ol’ dirty ashtray!

One woman has created the perfect tribute to celebrate her dad’s birthday who reportedly loves to smoke and eat cake!

“I made this a while ago for my dad’s birthday,” Hannah wrote on the Woolies/Coles Mudcake Hacks Facebook group.

“He’s a pack a day smoker and I couldn’t help but take the piss out of him,” she wrote.

As you would expect, the cake resembles a black ashtray accompanied by a number of dirty cigarette butts.


Want to make your own? The budding baker even provided members of the group with the recipe!

“Made using 2 packets of Woolworths unfilled sponge, ready to roll fondant (coloured with food colouring), desiccated coconut with black colouring for the ash, crumbled flake and filled with cream (dad’s fave),” she wrote.

Understandably, the visuals of the cake turned off a few social media users.

“Pretty clever but I could never eat it lol, well done,” one person commented.

Another added, “My lungs feel funny looking at this cake. Goes to show how real it looks!”

Would you give it a try?
