Aldi is selling a dupe of Baileys' Red Velvet Cupcake liqueur for half the price - and it tastes just like cake.

The supermarket giant is well known for taking inspiration from popular products - from developing a rival to Hotel Chocolat's Velvetiser and creating M&S nemesis Cuthbert the Caterpillar.

Aldi is now stocking Ballycastle Red Velvet Cream Liqueur - a luxurious blend of alcohol, double cream and red velvet cake costing just £7.25.

Perfect for sweet-toothed Baileys fans or Valentine's treats, the highly-anticipated product is already being swept off the shelves.
