- Marks & Spencers
Colin the Caterpillar, the staple office birthday cake, has had a spooky makeover just in time for Halloween – and fans of the cult British favourite are taking their opinions to Twitter.
Marks & Spencer gave the cake a “ghoulish” new look, complete with red fangs and a milk chocolate dracula collar, drizzled in blood-like icing, and covered in sweets.
“Count Colin,” the perfect accompaniment to your Halloween party this year, will set you back £7, while the mini chocolate roll versions are £2.
Here’s what Colin looked like before.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Colin’s loyal fanbase have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on the new edition of their favourite cake.
Most fans tweeted their excitement about the prospect of trying a whole new Colin.

However, one angry customer expressed his outrage at the change-up.

Even David Beckham celebrated his 41st birthday with a Colin cake last year – but we’ll have to wait and see what he thinks about the Count.
