Marks and Spencer is now selling a massive caterpillar cake that serve 40 people

2.2kg, and serves 40 people

The Marks & Spencer Colin The Caterpillar chocolate cake is truly a defining part of childhood.

There was, and still isn’t, a better cake to share on your birthday. Other supermarkets might now offer facsimiles, but they are not the same, they are but a hollow husk of the sheer ecstasy of a proper M&S chocolate caterpillar cake.

It is therefore very important that we inform you that you can now by giant Colin The Caterpillar – and his significant other, Connie The Caterpillar – cakes, that weigh over 2kg.

That is a very big cake.

It weighs 2.2kg, and serve 40 people. There is a small catch though – they have to be ordered seven days in advance, from Marks & Spencer online.

They also come with a customised iced message. And on Twitter, people have been somewhat confused by the bizarre choice of example message used in the promo shots:

Yeah, it is.... strange.
