Colin the Caterpillar cake might be great for a birthday but if you want to enjoy him for dessert on just a regular Wednesday, M&S now sells cake jars.
The store has launched single-serve ‘cake-away’ jars in three flavours – raspberry ripple, trillionaire’s and Colin the Caterpillar.
The treats cost £4 each and come in re-usable packaging that is full recycable.
Inside the Colin jar, you’ll find layers of rich chocolate sponge, Belgian chocolate sauce, chocolate ganache, milk and white chocolate chips and finished with a Colin the Caterpillar white chocolate face.
The raspberry ripple version has madeira sponge, sweet raspberry jam, creamy vanilla buttercream and freeze-dried raspberry pieces.

Finally, trillionaire’s is filled with madeira sponge, salted caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, milk chocolate shortcake balls and fudge pieces.
Natalie Tate, lead product developer for M&S Cakes said: ‘These cake jars are absolutely delicious and are perfect for picnics, lunches on the go – or pretty much whenever you need a sweet fix. Gone are the days of picking a cake to suit all tastes – you can now mix and match to suit everyone.
‘Much like an indulgent ice cream tub – there is something about diving straight in with a spoon that make the experience all the more delicious. I LOVE the Trillionaire’s, it is the ultimate in indulgent, chocolatey caramel goodness – a must try! But of course, all are delicious.’
Fans are already excited to try the jars out.
