Chris Hemsworth opted for a $29 Woolworths chocolate drip cake to celebrate his recent 40th birthday, showing the supermarket’s baked goods are fit for an Avenger.

To celebrate the launch of its new bakery range, Woolworths will be touring all across Queensland. The supermarket giant is bringing its ‘Bake Away Van’ to Brisbane on October 5, giving customers a tasty preview of nearly 150 new and improved baked goods.
