Colin the Caterpillar

Marks and Spencer Birthday Cake

Colin the Caterpillar

Are you a caterpillar lover or a chocolate lover? In either case, Colin the Caterpillar could be the perfect cake for you. The sponge is cheap and cheerful but this does not matter because the rest of the cake is brutally chocolatey. It is a chocoholics dream, from the chocolate cream that holds it together to the chocolate covering that gives the caterpillar its shell. The feet are made of chocolate, the tail is made of chocolate, the face is made of chocolate. There is no way that chocolate can be escaped in this confection.

Colin also looks perfect – he entertains the birthday child whatever the age – but if you are looking for anything more than chocolate, chocolate and chocolate in your birthday cake, or indeed a cute caterpillar face, then it might be better to look elsewhere. Though why that combination could fail to keep you happy I am at a loss to understand. Colin, as far as I am concerned, is liable to turn us all into very hungry caterpillars indeed.

    I’ve had a Colin the Caterpillar cake on every one of my birthdays I can remember, too. I just turned 20 and got a bit of stick from my friends when they saw the cake. But when they tasted it… they understood.

    Rules in my house are: birthday boy/girl gets the face, no exceptions. Tail is also reserved for the birthday boy/girl for tomorrow etc, but this rule is more flexible. Everybody gets a foot with the first piece but after that it’s first come, first served when it comes to the feet.

    Sazzle & her family have it every Birthday cos she is a nutcase. It is so yummy and chocolatey that every time I have a slice I want to scream ‘I LOVE LIFE’ from a-top a mountain. My cousin Brendan was over from Oz and he said each mouthfull was like a little drop of heaven, even though he is a tool.

    Colin is the best cake ever! We have him every birthday and we are 33 and 39! Our daughter is one next week and will be having colin and mini colin’s! So cute!

    We had him for our wedding anniversary one year too! Just hate to share him with others! My mouth is watering at the thought of Colin now!

    Best cake in the world!

    Free range eggs and other good M&S ingredients, no other caterpillar cake is the same, cheap copies of Colin!
