In all my years Ive never worked a birthday 🎂. Im a nurse so usually request it off. Anyway, I forgot so I need to buy a cake to take in. I thems the rules. So, I have M and S, Asda, Morrissons or Sainsburys nearby. Are any of them better than the other? Anything else I should take in?

Thanks in advance.

Colin. His face and arse are particularly chocolatey

Yep it’s Colin all the way. They do a pack of little mini Colin’s now if I recall rightly. Might be easier than cutting and slicing.

Colin the Caterpillar.

Don't get Connie. Such a disappointment if you were expecting the pure chocolateness that is Colin.

M&S birthday cakes are really dry. I’d avoid them.

Asda and Sainsbury’s are similar.

Colin at M&S and obviously don't forget your percy pigs while you are there.

Can't stand chocolate cake (sorry Colin). Sainsbury's Loaded Lemon Drizzle cake is gorgeous.

M&S or Waitrose for birthday cakes!

M&S Colin

But all M&S cakes taste nicer tbh

M&S Millionaires cake - I don't really like chocolate cake but could have eaten it all in one sitting!

@EachandEveryone I’d ask your coworkers for advice. There may a few they prefer or hate.

EachandEveryone Mon 31-Aug-20 15:33:06

Oh I won’t be doing that 😃😃

Waitrose ones are pretty and colourful! My top choice. They also taste pretty good.
