Listen up, we love Colin the Caterpillar as much as the next guy, but there’s a new edible character in town.
Morrisons has launched a very special cake of its own to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June, and he might just rival Colin.
In tribute to Her Maj’, the supermarket has brought out a Corgi shaped cake, and we’re very into it. Caterpillars are all well and good, but a dog shaped cake? Now *that* we can get behind.
The cake is named Clarence the Corgi, and he’s essentially a chocolate-covered swiss roll with red, blue and white sprinkles on top, and a little face which is made of icing.
They’ve really thought of everything – the pooch even possesses a cute Union Jack crown, making it the perfect showstopper for any bank holiday celebrations you might be having.
The cake will cost £6 to buy, and will be sold in Morrisons stores from the 21st May. It feeds up to 12 people, but we won’t judge if you scoff the whole thing yourself.
It’s what Queenie would want, right?
Rachel Fish, Cake Creator at Morrisons, said: “We’ve created this special cake to pay tribute to the Queen, as the country celebrates her Platinum Jubilee this summer.
“We had great fun coming up with names for the cake but think Clarence, as chosen by our customers, is a fitting tribute.”
Talking of the Platinum Jubilee, did you spot the Corgi cafe that’s opening up over the Bank Holiday weekend, to celebrate her 70 years on the throne?
The event, taking place at The Refinery in Bankside, London on Sunday 29th May, is going to be packed full of fun things to do, and encourages pups to be off-lead for the occasion.
There’s set to be a ‘chill-zone’ for older dogs, professional photographers to snap pooches and their owners/ admirers and fun dog accessories to play with, from The Crafty Dog Co.
Also expect dog-friendly refreshments from The Doggy Bakery, including ‘lollipups’ and ‘dognuts’, which can be found at the custom Pupuccino Bar.
Tickets start at £7.75 for kids under 16 and cost £13.75 for adults with a corgi, whilst those just turning up for the cute pooches will have to fork out a little more dough. Grab your spot here.
The Corgi fun never ends (and we can all agree that dog themed fun is the best type of fun…)!
