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:
So M&S now sell a 2kg Colin and
1: lol that they think it'll serve 40, I will eat the whole thing
2: lol that they've ignored the importance of a comma...BUT
2a: if they're suggesting using a 2kg cake to tell your mate to break up with their other half then TEN POINTS, M&S 🐛 pic.twitter.com/RG2ySauhmo
