September has arrived and with it my birthday, and that of Colin the Caterpillar.
Colin will be 25 years old but my age I will keep under wraps.
Colin the Caterpillar is a chocolate swiss roll type cake made by Marks and Spencer, which is a favourite of David Cameron, Boris Johnson and Jessica Ennis!
Marks and Spencer Coline the Caterpillar is soft chocolate sponge cake is rolled with butter icing, into a swiss roll, then covered with melted milk chocolate and decorated with chocolate popping candy and coloured crisp chocolate shells.
His face is made from solid white chocolate, and milk chocolate eyes.
Launched in 1990 M&S has sold more than seven million Colin the Caterpillar cakes in the past 25 years.
Each year M&S uses 8.4 tonnes of sweeties to decorate Colin with his signature markings
It takes 38 people to make Colin from start to finish.
Even though September is my birthday month don't wait for a birthday to have a Colin the Caterpillar Cake, this kind of cake can be served at the end of dinner, for afternoon tea, or just because ...
Just because ... is my favourite type of reason.
Colin the Caterpillar jellies aren't just for children, I love to serve them in martini glasses with the girls to nibble on over an evening of chat or while watching a movie.
There are six flavours to chose from
Fizzy Rainbows - my favourites

Serving these Collin the Caterpillar jellies make an ordinary moment a special occasion, and we all need more special moments in our everyday ordinary.
