A video of what appears to be a ‘Bunnings’ sausage sandwich’ has been shared by thousands thanks to one very creative detail.
Talented Melbourne baker Tegan ‘Tigga’ Maccormack tricked fans by making a cake that mimicked the look of a classic sausage in bread.
In a now-viral TikTok video, Tegan demonstrated how she made the ‘snag in bread’ using vanilla butter cake, chocolate mud and fondant – with many foodies admitting they were sent ‘into a panic’ after watching the clip.
‘I was completely surprised by the reaction,’ Tegan told FEMAIL, adding how her business partner Katie thought of the idea after making a fairy bread cake that was also well received online.
‘People wanted to know how we made the fairy bread cake so we thought of what else we could do.’

A video of what appears to be a Bunnings sausage has caused a stir online and captured the attention of thousands on TikTok
Paying tribute to Australian trends and themes, talented Melbourne baker Tegan ‘Tigga’ Maccormack (pictured) tricked the internet by making a cake that mimicked the look of a Bunnings sausage
The Bunnings Warehouse sausage sizzles are an iconic Australian fundraiser that take place out the front of the stores.
After only four days the video has been viewed more than 1.4million times and gained interest from both Aussie and international foodies.
‘I got a vanilla butter cake and I pulled it straight out of the oven,’ she said in the video.
‘While it was still hot, I placed these objects around it and that’s how I got the shape of the bread,’ she says, demonstrating jars and plastic pieces she used to mould the cake.
To make the bread, Tegan used vanilla butter cake (pictured left), while the sausage was made using chocolate mud and fondant
Tegan admitted to FEMAIL she created ‘a bit of a stir’ by using a sauce bottle to drizzle the buttercream onto the sausage (right)
‘I then sliced off the crust and sliced it in half, and I got two pieces of bread … but it’s cake!’ she said.
‘Now, because I’ve got bread, I thought ‘What am I going to make with it?’ Gotta be something cool!’
Her creative thinking led to using chocolate mud cake and fondant to replicate the look of a sausage.
Using a blow torch, she made the realistic looking sausage appear as if it had been cooked on a barbecue.
‘So once my snag was done, I put it on the cake bread. And we actually fried some apple in sugar for our onions. Chucked on some tomato sauce on it, and there you go!’ she said.
Tegan admitted to FEMAIL she created ‘a bit of a stir’ by using a sauce bottle to drizzle the buttercream onto the sausage.
‘I was so worried it was real tomato sauce!!’ one woman wrote in the comments.
‘I thought you were putting sauce on a cake for a second there,’ another added.
Others described the mind-blowing creation as ‘genius’ and brilliant’
The end result looked so realistic others described the mind-blowing creation as ‘genius’ and brilliant’.
‘This is a mind blow! I’m seeing tomato sauce, but I know it’s buttercream,’ one person wrote.
‘I’m so hungry right now but I’m not sure if I want the cake version or the real thing,’ another said.
Tegan has always had an interest in baking and co-founded her business Cake For Days with her best friend Katie in 2017.
