A simple, humble, eye-opening TikTok has exploded into a movement after someone shared their unique way of dishing out the birthday cake – using wine glasses. Let’s watch it below.

First, the birthday girl blows out the candles, then, one by one her friends take a scoop of cake using a wine glass and, et voila – the cake is served. It’s a nifty little trick and this ain’t your Nanna’s way of serving cake. Unless she does this. Then it is.

And it’s got us thinking about other entertaining hacks to consider when you have people over.

If you put pomegranate on it, it now looks fancy

Cocktails. Mocktails. Salad. Meat. Dessert. Shampoo. There’s nothing this fruit can’t fancy up and make you look like you really know what you’re doing.

Now, if you excuse us, we need to get back to work on our extremely belated Christmas in July dinner party (thanks coronavirus).
