We are obsessed with this collection of homemade Colin the Caterpillar attempts shared on Instagram. The nation's favourite birthday cake hasn't just inspired copy cat cakes from every other supermarket. You guys at home have been attempting creative DIY Colins and let's just say some have had more success than others.
Some homemade takes on the Marks and Spencer classic are pretty impressive, while others range from hilarious to downright scary!
Swiping through it's clear a lot of fun was had, even if not all of them turned out supermarket standard...
Posted by the official Colin the Caterpillar Instagram, the caption read: "I love seeing your attempts at recreating ME! Check out these creations by @krave_patisserie @thebakingtimes @scout_1960 @suziecookingthebooks @mother_pukka and Colin meets Kat Slater by @mhard.foodtography. Keep tagging me and I'll share my favourite knock-offs... though we all know there's only one real Colin."
Several have got pretty close to the iconic Colin, and we cant imagine how long it took to make that giant Colin, or how many ingredients went into it. Not to mention how long it must have taken to eat!
We love the cameo in one from some rather eager pups, no doubt after a slice of Colin.
Our favourite might just be the Colin Leopard crossover, which looks pretty professional and even has tiny leopard print macaroons.
Just don't look too long at the one with the teeth because that's scarier than last year's Easter Colin!
The page says it will be sharing some more of it's favourite knock-off Colins, so what are you waiting for? Could you do better?
