Entering the kitchen of Cherrywood Castle you discover a crime scene! At around 2 p.m. on Thursday the cook made the King’s favourite cake and left it on the table … BUT it has disappeared without a trace! Can you solve the mystery using the printable sheet music and accompanying set of fun online games! 

What secrets do the ‘Suits of Armor’ hold?

‘Who Ate My Cake’ is an imaginative adventure to make learning music fun! Explore the castle using the online game and search for clues in the sheet music to solve the case. Who was seen hanging around the kitchen door just before the crime took place and why are Freddie and Fiona so upset with the King? Budding detectives make notes on a special case files sheet as they conduct their investigation.


Choose your instrument

Who Ate My Cake is available in a choice of two levels for piano (beginner or early elementary) and also for treble instruments like the fluteclarinet, or saxophone. Students fully immerse themselves in the story with six original tunes to learn. What are the ‘Suspicious Statues’ hiding and could something interesting be concealed in ‘Grandmother’s Jewellery Box’?

Music theory clues

Clues can often only be unlocked by understanding music theory and finding help in the music. That interesting looking box in the castle may not open unless you know the meaning of the musical term and understanding what a musical sign does could help you rule out a suspect. The Music Teacher Guide gives more information about each instrument.

  • Who Ate My Cake?
