You can now send a Colin The Caterpillar cake to a friend for their lockdown birthday

Last year when the pandemic began and the world was asked to stay at home, we could never have imagined the scope of coronavirus. We certainly couldn’t have planned for a second year running where our loved ones would have to enjoy birthdays while in a lockdown. The rather depressing state of affairs will see many of us have to stay inside during our special day yet again, but there are ways to brighten things up just a little.

Marks & Spencer’s lockdown birthday cakes delivery service, for example, could come in handy. The supermarket announced via Instagram that they would now be offering some of their most delicious birthday cakes via delivery, making lockdown birthdays a touch sweeter in 2021. 

Taking to social media M&S said: “PSA: you can now get Colin DELIVERED! Our cake-filled dreams just came true. And it’s not only Colin, but many more cakes to send to loved ones or to enjoy at home. Head to the link in bio for our yummy, delivered-to-your-door, wow-worthy cake selection.”

Yes, that’s right — you can even get a Colin the Caterpillar cake delivered direct to your door. Lockdown birthdays just got that little bit better, right?

As well as Colin, the service also offers a classic chocolate cake, an impressive rainbow cake, and  a white chocolate cake, most of which also come accompanied by a bottle of fizz.

Speaking about this new service, M&S explained: “Can’t be with them on their special day? Send a delicious cake direct to their doorstep. Choose from indulgent cakes complete with celebratory fizz or our Colin the Caterpillar gift bag, which is packed full of goodies, including the iconic caterpillar cake and tasty treats.”
