M&S launches Percy Pig Celebration Cake and Brits are thrilled

Will it replace Colin the Caterpillar as our birthday cake of choice?

| Updated:

M&S has launched a Percy Pig Celebration Cake and Brits are thrilled.

The new piggy arrival comes hot on the heels of the Percymas Pies, Swiss Roll and Mini Bites.

Just in time for any November or December birthdays, it features layers of vanilla sponge sandwiched with jam and pink Percy-flavoured buttercream.

Naturally it’s covered with sprinkles and topped with Percy Pig sweets.

However, Brits all seem to be asking the same question about the cake.

M&S shared news of the launch on Instagram.

It said: “If you thought we couldn’t top our Percy Pig Mini Bites announcement earlier in the week then think again, because we’re back, and this time we come with cake!

“It’s bursting with fruity jam and Percy Pig flavour buttercream, finished with sprinkles and topped with Percy Pigs.

“You could wait for your next birthday to pick one up, but honestly, why would you?” the post finished.

What did Brits say about the cake?

The comments came thick and fast.

“Is this available in store?!” one Percy Pig fan asked.

When will it be in shops? We have a birthday tomorrow and want to get one!

“Is this available to order?” said another.

“When is this available from?” another asked the store.

“How much is this and when is it available?” another commented.

“When will it be in shops? We have a birthday tomorrow and want to get one!” another exclaimed.

M&S was quick to reply to the comments and told would-be customers: “It’s in our stores RIGHT NOW!!!”

Step aside Colin…

Sadly for Colin the Caterpillar – a birthday staple until now – it appears Percy is set to be the new birthday cake of choice.

“I definitely need this as my birthday cake,” one Percy fan commented.

“I need this for my birthday next year,” said another.

“If you don’t have this for my birthday I’ll be very disappointed,” said another.
