It’s safe to say Colin the Caterpillar is a birthday party staple — like one passionate Marks and Spencer reviewer said “Birthdays are not complete without a Colin the Caterpillar cake.” It’s hard to resist the delicious chocolate log cake covered in smarties.
We’ve come to love it so much as a nation that M&S has even created Connie the Caterpillar, as well as bride and groom versions to enjoy at wedding celebrations. But now the supermarket has delivered what we think might be the best Christmas dessert in history: Get Your Skates on Colin the Caterpillar (£10). The cake is embellished with lots of classic festive decorations including, snowflakes, Christmas trees, and a wooly hat, but best of all, Colin is wearing ice skates. Because the only thing that screams “winter” louder than a caterpillar cake is a caterpillar cake wearing a ice skates, duh.
The limited edition Colin is available in stores and online. So, if you’re on dessert duty this Christmas, Colin will save your wallet and win over every guest when it’s pudding time. We refuse to grow out of Colin the Caterpillar cakes, and if M&S keeps coming up with new versions, we’ll certainly never get bored of him — nor will any of these celebrity fans.
