The 26-year-old took to TikTok to shed some light on the family's antics behind the scenes of the popular show.
The family, who have appeared on the show since 2014, are known for always having a large tray of treats on display while watching TV.
In a response to a fan who suggested to Tom that the family should put "something obscure... like 4 bowls of soup" on their snack tray, the reality TV star revealed that sometimes the family do decide to make silly shapes, for their own amusement.
He said: "We have, me and my dad before, put the cakes in different positions and different shapes to see if any eagle-eyed viewers would actually notice."
"Sometimes quite rude shapes," he added to the post.
The Malone family are a popular addition to the Channel 4 show, and their creative cake choices are a hit with fans.
In the same video, Tom added that in a recent episode of the show, the family swapped out their usual cakes for a plate of toast.
This, he explained, was because the filming happened late at night, but since the family were watching The Andrew Marr Show at the time, it made sense to have a plate of toast instead.
Tom said: "We were watching The Andrew Marr Show when we were filming and obviously we film quite late at night but The Andrew Marr Show is actually on TV quite early in the morning.
"So we thought it'd be weird to have cakes in the middle, and we know people always talk about the cakes and notice the cakes.
"So we decided to put out a plate of toast, so we had a big plate of toast in front of us filming The Andrew Marr Show and Twitter went nuts.
He added: "It was like ToastGate - everyone was getting on at us like: 'Why have you got toast? Where's the cake?'"
Gogglebox airs on Channel 4.
