A Whoopsy-Wiffling Day at the Roald Dahl Museum with Mr Kipling

If you find this post effusive, it’s probably because books and cakes have that effect on me. It was a not-so-sunny day that we made the trip to the Roald Dahl Museum invited by none other than the team at Mr Kipling for their #SplendiferousSummer event.

We’d never visited the museum so we were quite excited – so excited that we arrived 45 minutes early.


The event room was filled with gloriumptious cake – something we were looking forward to but it was first time to be given an introduction to the Museum by the Director – Steve. I was surprised to know a few facts – that Sophie from The BFG was originally a boy called Jody. It was also lovely to be able to see the first handwritten manuscripts of the stories.

We toured the museum and got an insight into the life of Roald Dahl. I was glad we got to do this as the children learn about his stories in school and there’s always a Roald Dahl Dress-up Day too.

We were also given a tour of the little town of Great Missenden where the celebrated author picked up so much of his inspiration for his books.

It’s a lovely little town and a short walk from the centre saw us coming to the church, in the grounds of which Roald Dahl is buried.

Now you may be wondering what all this has to do with Mr Kipling Cakes. Well, firstly you don’t need any connection between anything to eat cake but in this case there is.

Mr Kipling is bringing you a Splendiferous Summer of prizes for all the family to enjoy. It all starts with the limited edition Roald Dahl packaging with images similar to the books. Of course, you then open the packaging and inside you’ll find a code that you can enter on the – Splendiferous Summer Website

Don’t forget to eat the cake, of course.

These limited edition packs are only available at Tesco.

There are some amazing prizes to be won including tickets to Matilda the musical, family tickets to the Roald Dahl Museum, a selection of Roald Dahl books and even if you don’t win first time round, you’ll be entered into the grand prize draw of the week which include a family trip to New York.

The packs are priced at an RRP of £1 – what’s not to like?

Back to our day and we were treated to a lovely lunch of sandwiches (yes, one can’t live on cake alone – or can you?) AND cake – lots of it.

We even got cake to take back in our goody bags as well as a super voucher to spend in the gift shop. How glad (and proud) was I when the children chose to buy books. They were rewarded with cake.

There are also some Phizz-Whizzing ideas to entertain your little ones this summer – including creating dream jars, levitating a ball and decorating an Oompa Loompa. For more information visit the website at https://mrkiplingcompetition.co.uk/inspire

We shall probably have to go and replenish our stock of cake soon. We do want to visit New York and if can win with cake – why ever not?

What are you waiting for – go get a pack of whoopsy-splunkers Mr Kipling cake and enter the code to win.

    1. My youngest has just completed 6 and they have been learning about Roald Dahl in school so it was great to take her through the museum. They also have some great story time sessions and crafting activities too.

  1. Wow, sounds like a totally fun day out! I am a fan of the Roahld Dahl books, and cake of course, so this sounds like my kind of event! x
