The world's biggest Tunnocks tea cake is up for auction

EVERYONE’S FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS treat is back in enormous, glorious fashion.

There is currently an online auction going on here for a giant Tunnock’s tea cake costume.

The costumes were used as part of the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony (along with Scottish terriers, John Barrowman and the Loch Ness Monster).

They proved very popular:

Bidding started at £1 and has so far reached the frankly crazy sum of £705 – and there are still six hours to go before the auction closes. Some people are very excited:

Others are understandably confused…

And of course there are plenty of realists too…

If you’re now fantasising about gorging on delicious marshmallowy goodness while dancing around like this, don’t worry, you’re not alone:

Christmas jumpers be gone, it’s all about the oversized confectionery outfits this year.

Bonus benefit: any excess weight gained as a result of tea cake bingeing will be hidden by this fashion forward gem. What’s not to like?
