Marks and Spencer has given everybody's favourite birthday cake Colin the Caterpillar a spooktacular makeover.
The usually cheery Colin cake has transformed into Count Colin, with this ghoulish new treat set to be released just in time for Halloween 2017.
Donning a Dracula-style collar, gory red fangs and drizzled in ‘blood’ icing, Count Colin will join other Halloween themed sweets, including Percy Pumpkins.
The seasonal chocolate cake comes in the usual large version, which costs £7, or you can get a packet of Mini Count Colin the Caterpillars for £2 - making them the perfect choice for both visiting trick or treaters and parties.
It's safe to say people are loving Colin's drastic new look.
I'm sorry, the old Colin the Caterpillar Cake can't come to the phone right now...— Aloha Lola Cards (@AlohaLolaCards) September 10, 2017

I am very excited about the Halloween Colin the Caterpillar. That is all.— Hannah Hermione (@hannah_hermione) September 10, 2017
This isn’t the first time Colin has had a quirky makeover, though - earlier this year a wedding version of Colin and Connie Caterpillar cakes were released, which saw the iconic cakes dressed their best for their big day.
Bring on October 31st!
