Pokémon inspired baking

Author Archives: Bakémon Master Siobhán

The waffle iron's always in the shop...Hello reader! We hope you’ve abandoned your New Year’s resolutions for a healthy diet by now so that you can fully enjoy our Pokémon recipes 😉 This week we’re bringing you a bit of a specialist recipe in that you’ll need a waffle iron for it; we’re making Sandshrew & Sandslash waffles! We thought the pattern of Sandshrew’s skin/hide/whateveryoucallit looks a bit like a waffle, and since Bakémon Master Siobhán recently acquired a waffle iron we decided to roll with that idea and evolve the Sandshrew waffles to Sandslash waffles by piping in chocolate ganache spikes. Yum. If you don’t have a waffle iron we suppose you could buy waffles in the shop but they definitely won’t be as nice! It doesn’t take too long anyway, and is a bit like making pancakes so it’s relatively simple. Makes both an indulgent breakfast or an ideal dessert.

Waffles away!

Ice creams!

Surprise super special bonus post! Aren’t you all so lucky?

Many people have suggested we don’t restrict ourselves to just Gen 1. So, for our special bonus post to celebrate reaching 151 Facebook likes, we give you a recipe for the most requested Pokémon family; Gen 5’s Vanillite, Vanillish & Vanilluxe.  Continue reading


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!

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!

Uh, I think my dessert is grinning at me…

Relax, you haven’t unknowingly travelled in time and missed Pokémons #10-#91; we’ve taken a bit of a jump from our usual numerical order to bring you a very special Halloween recipe for everyone’s favourite Ghost Pokémon, Gastly, Haunter & Gengar! Ghosts are dark and ethereal, so we felt an airy, chocolatey mousse would best capture their otherworldly aura. At the very least, if you make the recipe to our proportions you will be haunted by the chickens that may have been from all the eggs you’ll go through! Also, yes, technically chocolate mousse does not require one to bake per se, but it’s a yummy dessert so it counts. We decided to try three different flavours of mousse for the three ghosts; Mars Bar for Gastly, chocolate orange for Haunter and dark chocolate for Gengar (’cause he’s the darkest, duh). We then decorated them by making their faces in solid chocolate because it looks damn awesome. This was both our first experience making mousse, and we were met with varying levels of success. Chocolate and eggs; how hard can it be right? Well, we make mistakes so you don’t have to 😛 Let’s get started!
