Every guest was given a cake
Birthday cakes from Coleen McLoughlin's 21st party are being auctioned on the internet for hundreds of pounds.

The fashionista footballer's fiancee celebrated her birthday at Thornton Manor in Wirral at the weekend with family and high-profile friends.

Two of the individual iced cakes given to the guests are being sold on eBay.

A spokesperson for Ms McLoughlin said she gave her main cake to a children's hospital, and hoped those auctioning the buns would consider doing the same.

One is being offered for immediate sale with a price tag of £400 and the other has seen bids reaching £1,200.

Cake 'found'

The two-tone pastel cakes, complete with organza ribbon tied around the middle, came in clear presentation boxes.

More than 50 people have bid for the two cakes, with the starting price at £5.50.

One of the sellers claims they found the cake outside Thornton Manor.

A spokesperson for Ms McLoughlin said: "As has been reported, Coleen has given her main birthday cake to Alder Hey Children's Hospital so that the children there can enjoy it.

"It would be nice if whoever was behind this particular piece of enterprise on eBay had decided to donate the proceeds to Alder Hey or to another equally deserving cause."
