Happy Christmas from Mr Mime!

Festive greetings Bakémon trainers! As we are so close to Christmas we decided to do yet another very special recipe to suit the season that’s in it. A standard Christmas treat for many years has been gingerbread men, decorated however one pleases. However us Bakémon masters aren’t huge fans of gingerbread so we decided to use our own Christmas cookie recipe to make Christmas Mr Mimes! Mr Mime was the obvious Pokémon choice because he’s humanoid shaped and we honestly have no other idea what baked good he could be 😛 These cookies are made with treacle & all the Christmas spices you can think of and are totally delicious; Bakémon master Siobhán has been making variations of this recipe (& flooding our apartment with cookies in the process 😉 ) since the start of December so we have it perfected! The Mr Mimes are decorated using lemon flavoured glacé icing which nicely compliments the Christmassy flavours & gives it an extra touch of sweetness. Be warned however that both the cutting out & icing of your mimes can be quite time consuming, we think it’s worth it though!

Ready? Let’s go!

Doughy & delicious

Welcome back Bakétrainers! Apologies for our slightly delayed recipe this week, both us Bakémon masters have been very busy with college deadlines and haven’t had much time to write up Pokérecipes. Never fear though! The baking will of course go on, and this week we present to you Ekans and Arbok slezterp (pretzels…coz you know…Ekans & Arbok is backwards for Snake & Kobra…) We wanted something both snakey and different to represent these two, and seeing as making something poisonous wasn’t really an option we decided to go with pretzels. We made classic salty pretzels for Ekans and evolved to cinnamon & sugar Arboks using, get this, purple sugar! They were all really really tasty and basically all disappeared overnight in our apartment. Which is probably just as well because pretzels don’t really keep for longer than a day or two, so if you don’t have as many mouths to feed as we do we strongly suggest reducing this recipe to your needs! If you’ve never made pretzels before  (we hadn’t!) then you’re in for a treat!

Teeny tiny cookies of chocolatey peanutty joy!

Tweet tweet! It’s time for another bird Pokémon recipe; this week it’s Spearow & Fearow, the grumpy duo who are often less popular than the Pidgey family, but who should not be underestimated! They also make a good batch of cookies as you will soon see. We thought Spearow & Fearow would taste like peanut butter and chocolate. It’s just a vibe we got. We don’t think we were far wrong, because our end result was totally nom: little bird shaped peanut butter & chocolate roll out cookies. We managed to find cutesy bird shaped cookie cutters to make our cookies look a little bit more like birds than our Pidgey cookies did (although we stress our recipes are Pokémon inspired, we don’t always try to make them look like the Pokémon they’re based on…), however you may not have or be able to find bird shaped cookie cutters. No worries, you can try cut them into bird shapes by hand, or just make circular cookies and ice on bird faces, whatever you like! We through in a bunch of chocolate chips to evolve our Spearows into Fearows as well as using a bigger cookie cutter, making them super chocolatey as well as deliciously peanuty 🙂

Here comes the recipe!
