If you decided to make the most of the sunshine today with a stroll along the Thames, you may have spotted a giant cake floating along the dirty old river. Sadly it's not an actual cake or an actual person's birthday, it's all part of a massive publicity stunt for Ebay's twentieth birthday – but it still looks pretty damn sweet. 

So, er, happy birthday Ebay – and here are some of the best Instagrams of the big old cake:

A giant cake isn't the only thing new to the river – take a look at the apocalyptic horseman in the Thames.
