Not bad Waitrose!

This is a great cake for any occasion. Could be a little more moist but I love the thick chocolate feet and face

no. 1 caterpillar cake!

not a fan of these caterpillar cakes usually but i have to say this was fantastic! has around 6 layers of sponge and buttercream. Yes its hard to cut, but this is due to the generous coating of chocolate. I will be buying this every birthday from now on

Hard to cut but really tasty

Falls apart when you try to cut it, but really delicious and is easy to share, a little goes a long way!

too sweet and very dry

Very dry. We bought and ate this on the same day. It had two weeks expiry left so not old, yet it was still very dry. I agree with the last poster that it was too sweet, even for sugar- lover like me and didnt taste very chocolatey
