SHE'D been trying to save money by making a baby shower cake from four £1.20 ones from Asda.

But one woman's attempt to turn some basic Victoria sponges into something to be proud of was an "utter failure".

She took to TikTok to share a video of the attempt, in which she was seen having used long wooden sticks to secure the cakes on top of each other.

She then tried to use a pot of Mr Kipling's Unicorn vanilla flavour icing to cover it, but as she did so, the crumbs began falling off.

"Trying to make a baby shower cake out of £1.20 cakes from asda," she wrote over the clip.

And she captioned it: "Cake boss please forgive me for these cake crimes."
