New Recipe: Instagram users are loving M&S’ incredible football smash cake

We all know M&S has pretty impressive cakes, come on, the supermarket brought us Colin the Caterpillar! But this new cake is seriously impressive; this football smash cake is a work of art and construction that really is spectacular.

The retailer shared the cake to its Instagram page and followers have gone crazy for it.

The buttercream and jam sponge cake is topped with a white and milk chocolate football dome covering the whole surface, which by itself would be a fabulous cake. But crack the dome open to reveal a whole new layer of decoration; fluffy green icing, a golden trophy and milk and white chocolate shortcake balls.

If you’re amazed, just imagine the looks on kids’ faces.
