A savvy Australian mum with a knack for baking impressive birthday cakes has shared her latest jungle-inspired creation with thousands online.

Posting to the Kmart Home Décor and Hacks Facebook group, Bec shared a photo of the cake decorated with safari toys she spray-painted gold. 

The cake was placed on a $6.50 fillable cake stand from Kmart and she used the White Knight Super Gold Spray Paint $24.30 from Bunnings Warehouse on the toy figurines. 

To add more colour, Bec also purchased green coloured rocks from a local budget store for inside the cake stand.

The social media post swiftly attracted attention from parents and started an online trend, as others were inspired to replicate the cake themselves. 

‘We did the same with the animals for my son’s birthday,’ one mum said and shared an image of her cake that looked similar to Bec’s.

Another mum also shared a photo of the cake she made for her child’s first birthday but used miniature animals to place on top.

But while the spray-painted Kmart animals look fantastic, Bec warned she could only use them once as the paint formed a sticky outer layer.

‘These stayed sticky, I threw them out afterwards,’ Bec said.

Regardless, other mums were eager to make the safari dessert for their children and thanked Bec for sharing her creation with the Facebook group.

‘That is so clever! I’d never think of that, it looks great,’ one woman said.

‘Spray painting the animals is such a great idea, I might steal that for home decor, they look like something you’d find in a home store!’ another said.

A third added: ‘Looks simple and elegant, well done.’
