Quarantine birthdays can now have Colin the Caterpillar delivered to your front door

Celebrating your birthday during lockdown can be a bit depressing. Those who enjoy spending their special days with friends and family (within two meters of them) may struggle to find the same excitement in a Zoom party. However, a UK supermarket has launched a new delivery service that may help ease your disappointment a bit. Marks & Spencer is now delivering Colin the Caterpillar cakes to people's doorsteps, which is the good news we all need.

Yes, M&S's legendary birthday character cakes are now available direct to you or a loved one - but the good news doesn't stop there. As well as the cake (which will be delivered in a reusable M&S bag), you'll also receive a bag of vegan Colin's sweets and even a balloon, because what's it a party without balloons? ? All for just £20.

Yes, yes, yes, I guess this cake is technically for kids, but you know as well as I do that nothing makes a birthday feel better than eating a chocolate log that looks like a caterpillar Yes. Especially the quarrel over who gets to eat the face.

Colin the Caterpillar Cake M&S

This party bag ends all party bags.

For those who don't like the sound of Colin the Caterpillar on their big day (we're not here to judge), Marks and Spencer also offer a few other gift sets as part of their home delivery service options. First up was the rainbow cake, paired with a bottle of Casa di Amello Rosé Spumante. Interesting enough. Or you could go for the classic chocolate cake with 10 candles, but let's face it, this is something you always forget to pick up.

With all this in mind, Marks & Spencer has you covered for your birthday celebrations during lockdown. Or, honestly, just Saturday night.
