Last night The Great British Bake Off featured caterpillar cakes in Party Week of the popular baking show. The technical challenge saw the quarter finalists take on the task of making a caterpillar cake.
The UK’s favourite supermarket couldn’t resist responding to the episode with a series of social posts, including an open letter to Channel 4, which shoppers have found hilarious. It reads:
“To Channel 4, We are intellectual caterpillar counsel to Aldi UK. We write to you regarding Channel 4’s violation of Cuthbert’s rights. Aldi has always been a big fan of the Great British Bake Off, and we’ve long craved a Hollywood handshake… But tonight’s episode really took the biscuit.”
