A PARENT has been mercilessly mocked for attempting a DIY version of a Colin the Caterpillar cake – with Brits claiming it’s given them 'nightmares'.
The home baker decided to whip up a version of the Marks and Spencer’s iconic cake for a birthday, but it went horribly wrong.
Instead of a replica of the happy-looking caterpillar, the cake ended up looking like it had been “run over”.
A photo of the disastrous bake was posted on Reddit, and has been upvoted 5,100 times.
The amateur baker joked in the caption: “Am sure the kids won't be able to tell I skimped on Colin this time…”
One horrified Colin fan wrote: “It’s Colin’s cousin, colon.”
Another added: “Err I think Colin needs an ambulance.”
A third wrote: “He got run over – poor Colin.”
However, some praised the efforts, with one person writing: “That is TERRIFYING. Excellent work.”
And from Co-op’s Charlie to Tesco’s Curly, we review rivals to Marks & Spencer’s Colin the Caterpillar cake.
Meanwhile, Marks and Spencer launch Easter Colin the Caterpillar and he’s looking smart.
