The range of Caterpillar cakes has proven to be very popular with M&S expanding over the years. The line now includes a Connie the Caterpillar cake, jelly sweets, mini logs and the retailer has recently launched Colin the Caterpillar chocolate faces. You can even get personalised Caterpillar cakes as well as buying Easter, Halloween and Christmas themed log cakes.

However its newest launch consisting of two giant cakes has left shoppers with split opinions. 

Taking to its Facebook page to announce the launch of its newest addition, the retailer posted a photo of the giant cake.

They wrote: “Colin… but SUPER-SIZED! Available exclusively online to collect in store, our GIANT Colin the Caterpillar cake (with a giant white-choc face!) will make your birthday extra-sweet.”

The launch of the giant cake was released to mark Colin’s 30th birthday after launching in 1990.

The cake has gone through quite a few transformations since his launch but with a price tag of £45, shoppers explained that they wouldn’t be rushing out to buy it.

Many thought it was overpriced considering the original Colin cake retails for £7 and serves 10. 

The giant Colin is said to serve 40 people but shoppers aren’t convinced it’s worth it.

One M&S customer commented on the post and said: “Isn’t that just normal Colin before they made it smaller but charged the same price.”
