Sugary cute!

Greetings beloved fans & a special welcome to everyone who has discovered us via Pokémemes! Our internet fame is slowly mounting and we are doing our very best to satisfy your hunger for Pokémon themed recipes. This week we encounter the first Pokéfamily with only two members; Rattata and Raticate. Both of whom every trainer is familiar with as they are the most widely found ‘mon about Kanto & Johto, and love them (we’re looking at you, Joey) or hate them they’re iconic members of the Pokémon world. To make edible versions of these infamous rodents we decided to follow a traditional English recipe for ‘sugar mice’. Sugar mice are cute, edible mouse shaped blobs of sugar traditionally found in children’s stockings at Christmas. Sugar Rattatas & Raticates are cute, edible rat shaped blobs of sugar traditionally found in the tall grass (and you know, everywhere else too). On the sugar note- let us warn you in advance these are extremely sweet. They are essentially just balls of icing and have only two main ingredients; icing sugar and egg white. We flavoured our Rattatas with peppermint & our Raticates with chocolate but the end result is sugary in both cases. You have been warned.

Feeling peckish?

Hello & welcome to our bird-themed recipe for Pokémon’s best known and best loved bird family; Pidgey, Pidgeotto & Pidgeot. These feathered ‘mons are among the first & most frequently encountered Pokémon in a trainer’s journey and Pidgeys are surely the main inhabitant of the skies over Kanto & Johto (and obviously they also like the tall grass). We Bakémon masters have deduced that aside from Berries, Pidgeys/Pidgeottos/Pidgeots enjoy eating nuts and fruit, similar to commonly seen birds in our back gardens. Hence, this week’s recipe is for some super tasty ‘bird food cookies’ made from oats, nuts & apples (& also chocolate chips but please don’t try to feed chocolate to any birds, including Pidgey & its relatives). We also threw in some yummy spices like cinnamon because they’re like, totally best friends with oat cookies. This recipe definitely takes on the form of being ‘inspired’ by Pokémon rather than aiming to look like them; we tried to give the cookies bird faces but they looked creepy & deformed after being baked so we gave up. You could try it though, or maybe try cutting your cookies into bird shapes if you like- half the fun is experimenting so get creative! One of the major pluses of this week’s recipe is it’s significantly less time consuming than our recent recipes, so you can make these up super fast (they’ll be gone super fast too we assure you).

Onwards to cookies!

Bzz, hope you like honey!

Welcome reader to another Pokémon recipe brought to you by the Bakémon masters. This week we tackle Weedle,Kakuna & Beedrill- the other main bug family from first gen. Those of you who read last week’s Caterpie, Metapod & Butterfree recipe will notice this week’s is quite similar; we decided it was easiest and made the most sense to continue with cake truffles and cupcakes because the two families are so similar. We hope you like honey because the key difference with this recipe to last week’s is that it is completely stuffed with honey. Honey in the cake, honey in the icing (mmmm honey icing), honeycomb brittle…honey honey honey everywhere! Y’know, coz like Beedrill…bees make honey..do you get it? No? Well honey is tasty anyway…As well as having lots of tasty honey we also used chocolate  to coat our Weedles which was much more successful than Caterpie’s candy melts, and we coated our Kakunas in honeycomb as opposed to meringue…which was a little bit mad, but the good kind of mad we hope! Anyways, less words more baking (lol jk here come more words…the recipe!).

You may have noticed that our recipes use a lot of food colouring. An excessive amount, some would say. But to them we say, it’s not our fault! Pokémon are meant to be colourful!
Anyway, considering how much we use, I (Siobhán) thought it might be helpful to give you the lowdown on the different types available.

Cute enough to eat!

Greetings Bakémon lovelies! We resume our numerical journey through the Pokémon where we left off before our Halloween jump to the ghosts; Caterpie, Metapod and Butterfree. These are one of the classic two bug families (the other being Weedle, Kakuna & Beedrill which you’ll make next week) that all Pokémon trainers are familiar with as they inhabit nearly every patch of grass in Kanto and form part of many trainer’s early game teams. This is quite a long recipe that we recommend you undertake over a period of two days, unless being trapped in your kitchen for hours and hours is something you enjoy. Caterpie will be made as cake truffles covered in candy melts, evolving into Metapod cake truffles with a hardened (geddit?) meringue shell and finally metamorphosising into colourful butterfly cake Butterfrees (which, incidently, are most definitely not butter-free). These make totally cute and colourful bugs that even Misty would have to love, but be warned they’re very rich & probably not very good for you (although a lot easier to eat than real insects!) Technically our Butterfree are butterfly cakes and not cupcakes so our promise to ease off cupcakes for a while still stands. Also, if you’re wondering what a cake truffle even is, it’s basically a ball of cake crumbs and icing smooshed together. Delicious. Here comes the recipe!
