Scarlett Moffatt’s attempt at a sponge cake for her mum is too funny!

It's the thought that counts!

Scarlett Moffatt has revealed she had to improvise when it came to her mum’s birthday cake this year, as she “can’t cook”.

The Geordie fave told her fans that because she couldn’t cook her mum, Betty, an actual sponge cake, she brought her a white bath sponge instead!

The star shared a snap of the sponge, which was decorated with two flamingo stickers, two 10 euro notes and pink jewels.

Fans were amused by Scarlett’s gift for her mum with one person asking: “Is that… a bath sponge?!”

Another tweeted: “So cute, well done. A for effort,” while a third added: “Aww she will appreciate the thought!”

Scarlett also took to Instagram to pay a loving tribute to her mum to celebrate the occasion.

She shared a collage of photos of herself and her mum, including one of Scarlett as a baby and another showing the pair shortly after Scarlett won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Scarlett wrote: “Happy birthday mamma bear. The ying to my yang, my bestie!!

“To the kindest, funniest, wittiest lady I know, you deserve the best birthday!!
