The bizarre kitchen tip is gaining attention thanks to user @creativescraps. Her video of the hack, which uses a bucket and a bundt cake pan to get corn off the cob, now has more than 5 million views.
It’s just the latest cooking hack to go viral on TikTok in recent weeks. Lately, TikTokers have also explained how to clean dirty pans, how to keep bananas fresh for longer and how to make a “no-mess” hot dog.
In her video, @creativescapes shows her husband stuffing corn into the bundt cake pan, which is sitting inside a large bucket.
“I saw it on Tiktok and had to try it,” she captioned her clip.

As the video continues, @creativescaps’ husband successfully pushes two ears of corn through the hole in the cake pan. In seconds, almost all of the corn comes right off the cob.
TikTokers were mostly blown away by the hack. Many called it “genius” or “amazing.”
“You’re onto something here,” one user wrote.
“Actually pretty neat,” another wrote.
In the comments, @creativescaps went on to say that this is how she plans on removing corn from the cob moving forward. The whole setup, she wrote, costs about $9 at Walmart.
