Exceedingly geeky cakes

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have noticed a fair few tea and cake posts lately. When Dom told me that Mr Kipling had released a line of Roald Dahl cakes, I knew I had to get them all. Yes, for the Gram. I hate me too. Anyhoo, I could only find the George’s Marvellous Medicine cakes in town, so she picked up the whole set for me on her travels. What a love! Here they are, ranked from worst to best. Of course, if you’re anything like me, you’ll buy them all anyway because they just look so damn good!

I expected more from the chocolate mud pies – just not chocolatey enough.

The strawberry fancies were too sickly to scoff too many at once. Although, I guess that’s for the best.

I thought the peach might go the same way as the strawberry but the flavour was subtle and really tasty.

The forest fruit slices didn’t last two minutes at a recent picnic. Again, not too over-powering a flavour and very moreish.

And now for my favourites: the lemon and raspberry whirls. Sooo good! Best have a couple with a cup of tea. I hope they stay in production for a while yet.

Have you tried these cakes yet? Which is your favourite?
