Warmer days and more freedom from lockdown restrictions are on the way but for now, most of us will have to make do with picnics in the park.

Frankly, many of us will be happy simply to get outdoors and reunite with loved ones!

So to help keep you stocked up on al fresco essentials Marks and Spencer has released three delicious desserts to make your gatherings extra special.

Perfectly portioned for packing in a picnic, lunch on the go, or even as a special birthday treat – the retailers new single serving ‘cake-away’ jars are the ultimate treat.

Available in three delicious flavours including a fruity raspberry ripple, indulgent trillionaire’s and chocolatey Colin the Caterpillar.

Each jar costs £4 and all three are available to buy in Marks and Spencer stores now.

If you're unsure about which one to go for, we've outlined what is included in each one below:

  • Colin the Caterpillar Cake Jar £4 Layers of all the Colin goodness – rich chocolate sponge, Belgian chocolate sauce, chocolate ganache, milk and white chocolate chips and finished with a Colin the Caterpillar white chocolate face, 178g.
  • Raspberry Ripple Cake Jar £4 – Layers of madeira sponge, sweet raspberry jam, creamy vanilla buttercream and freeze-dried raspberry pieces, 158g.
  • Trillionaire’s Cake Jar £4 – Layers of madeira sponge with salted caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, milk chocolate shortcake balls and fudge pieces , 169g.

The desserts are beautifully packaged in a re-usable jar (that is also fully recyclable) – simply dig in with a spoon and enjoy indulgence. Now, you can finally have your cake and eat it too – wherever takes your fancy.

Natalie Tate – Lead Product Developer for M&S Cakes said: "These cake jars are absolutely delicious and are perfect for picnics, lunches on the go – or pretty much whenever you need a sweet fix. Gone are the days of picking a cake to suit all tastes – you can now mix and match to suit everyone. Much like an indulgent ice cream tub – there is something about diving straight in with a spoon that make the experience all the more delicious. I LOVE the Trillionaire’s, it is the ultimate in indulgent, chocolatey caramel goodness – a must try! But of course, all are delicious."

Already a huge success on social media, the new launch was posted by @newfoodsuk on Facebook and has since gained 5k likes in half an hour and over 700 comments as followers swoon over the latest sweet sensation.

One user commented: "Are these in store now ?! Omg I'm off to m&s !! Xx"

Another tagged a friend and exclaimed: "Oh good lord above, get me 10 Colin the caterpillar cake jars, I’ll polish them bad boys off in one"
