The viral Woolworths Christmas Smash Cake has just arrived on NZ shelves

The only time we'll allow playing with your food.

Forget everything you've been told about not playing with your food because there's a viral smash cake making the rounds this silly season that's set to change all that.

After selling out in Aussie last year, Woolworths/Countdown's Christmas smash cake has made its way across the ditch and landed in NZ stores. 

It’s the kind of fun where the kids (big, little and at heart) can take to it with whatever weapon they choose (my preferred choice is a rolling pin) to crack the chocolate dome revealing a candy-topped chocolate mud cake. 

It would be a hit (literally) at work xmas lunches, BBQs, and any bring-a-plate scenario.

The cake promises to feed an army of up to 26 and at $2 per slice, you won't need to break the bank to feed the whole crew.

The cake has been going viral on TikTok with some rave reviews. 

User @arvanfamily shared their crack at smashing the cake in a video that's been viewed over 1.5 million times and garnered 145k likes.

Although admitting they “want to headbutt it”, the couple took at it with a wooden spoon and gasped at the colourful candy land on the inside.

As for the cake, the pair describe it as a “glorified mud cake”.

“It’s so good!”

Now, they’ve got me curious because let's be real, the only thing better than Christmas presents is the dessert.

If cake isn’t a bit of you, there's also a DIY Gingerbread House with pipeable icing in Woolworth's Christmas range - loaded with all the candy decorations to deck it out.

Similarly, the 3D Gummy Block House looks like a fun twist. It's like Lego, but edible.

It could be a handy distraction for that moment you realise you haven't got the right batteries for the kiddos' toys on Xmas morning, right?
