A talented baker has impressed thousands by hiding her ultra-realistic cake on a supermarket shelf.
In a viral clip, Tigga Maccormack, owner of Cake for Days, walks down the supermarket aisle and challenges viewers to guess which item on the shelves is actually made of cake.
The clever baker later revealed that one of Milo’s boxes, which is indistinguishable from the boxes next to it, is actually made out of cake by taking a huge bite out of it.

Prior to the reveal, some eagle-eyed viewers in the comments clocked the “box” like cake while others were taken aback.
“I was convinced it was the T2 box omg,” a fan said after Tigga revealed the real cake.
‘I was right! The only way I knew was because it was a slightly darker green,” another said.
Tigga even scans the cake at the checkout which sounds like a regular Milo box, confusing the cashier who said it was “very convincing”.

The Melbourne pastry chef explained how she creates her stunningly compelling cakes using a special edible image printer.
“I remove the label from the actual product, scan it into my computer, then on my computer, make sure all the measurements are correct,” she said.
Tigga then prints the tag on edible paper with edible ink and says, even if she gets close, the ink won’t always give her an exact color match.
Her Milo tin cake clip was part of a viral series called Shopping with Tigga where she hides her realistic cakes on the shelves of her local Coles or Woolworths.
In another clip, Tigga explained how she creates her incredibly compelling cakes using a special edible image printer.
Previously, she created a tomato sauce bottle cake identical to the ones on the shelf next door.
In the first of two videos, which have been viewed 3.4 million times, Tigga showed a supermarket aisle in which her cake mixed indistinguishably with other bottles of sauce.
In the second video, the baker walks through the shelves before picking up one of the “bottles” and biting into it, revealing it to be a cake.
Previously, Tigga shared the installation of her supermarket series where she encourages viewers to guess which item in the aisle is real and which is a cake.
“I’ve watched this 1000 times and can’t help but feel like I’m being trolled,” commented comedian Christian Hull.
“I fooled a lot of you,” the baker captioned the second clip.
Hundreds of viewers in the comments said they guessed right, but others admitted they were puzzled.
“What – no way, you absolutely fooled me, you are amazing,” one woman said.
“I guessed it – but girl, I was scanning the video trying to find it!” This is the best,’ a second wrote.
In a video on Instagram, Tigga showed how she created the sauce bottle cake by stacking layers of cake and then carving it into the correct shape.
In a video on Instagram, the clever baker explained how she created the sauce bottle cake saying she stacked a few layers of cake and sculpted it into the right shape.
“One of the hardest things about making a cake like this is trying to get the perfect size. Once you’ve cut the cake and you need to plan some ganache to outside, then fondant as well,” she said.
Tigga said she “looked” at the shape and lid of the bottle and used a printer with an edible link to replicate the MasterFoods label.
“Using edible ink, it’s really hard to get an exact match and a lot of people said that was the main reason they could tell the difference,” she explained.
