M&S has launched a new cake delivery service where you can send a loved one a Colin the Caterpillar cake amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

While many Brits have already been unlucky enough to celebrate their birthday in lockdown, if yours is still to come, you could be in for quite the treat! 

With supermarkets and high-street stores being forced to close across the country in recent weeks, M&S is the latest store to introduce new measures in a bid to keep up with increasing customer demands.  

The high-street chain has launched the service on a selection of popular birthday cakes including Colin the Caterpillar, and while it may set you back £20, the gift bag also includes veggie Colin sweets and a fun balloon.

Each cake comes with its own treats to make celebrating that little bit easier. 

From balloons to candles and even a bottle of delicious sparkling wine – it is the first time M&S has offered a home delivery service of its kind.  

And if Colin isn’t your thing, there’s also a Happy Birthday Rainbow Cake with Sparkling Rosé Gift Set on offer for £30.

The colourful cake is joined by a bottle of Casa di Amello Rosé Spumante for the ultimate celebration.

And to put a smile back on your face, they have also added a Chocolate Birthday Cake with Candles into the delivery service, which is a cheaper alternative at £10.  

Claimed to be ‘perfect for chocolate lovers,’ it comes complete with 10 candles, so you don’t get caught short! 

And once the treats are all devoured, the birthday girl or boy will be left with a sturdy M&S tote bag, which is sure to come in handy for your next big shop, too. 

But with delivery slots limited customers are advised to place their orders in advance – and to keep checking back as new slots are being added.

Delivery is £3.99 for nominated day or £3.50 for standard delivery.
