Pokémon inspired baking

Super rare cheesecakes…

We’re back again with our next recipe in the same week to make up for our unexpected absence last week! This week we’re trying something different and making desserts instead of cakes and biscuits; it’s Clefairy & Clefable strawberry cheesecake! We thought these awesome pink mons had to be strawberry flavoured, and since they’re big fans of the moon (which we all know is made of cheese) we decided to make cheesecake, with strawberry chunks for Clefairy & strawberry chunks + white chocolate chips (they look a bit like little moons!) for Clefable. This is a pretty quick & easy recipe which doesn’t require any baking, you really just mix it all together then put it in the fridge overnight to set (getting it to set can be a little tricky though). We made a small cheesecake for Clefairy (7 1/2″ tin) and a larger one for Clefable (9″ tin) but this was still a lot of cheesecake so unless you have a lot of people to feed we suggest you don’t make both at once!

Anyway, here’s the recipe!

Gender Equality Cupcakes

Gender Stereotype Defying Cupcakes

Ahem. Well that title was a mouthful. Yep, this week we attempted to bake six Pokémon all at once. As you can imagine, it took a while (but not as long as you’d think!) and writing it up also took a while, which is why this post is late (sorry!). We felt it was logical to do both male and female Nidoran lines all in one recipe because essentially they’re the all the same family, they just differ by gender. Did anyone else find it weird that in the first Pokémon game only Nidoran had a gender? And subsequently when genders and breeding were introduced for all Pokémon, that Nidoking and Nidoqueen can’t breed? Japan, you are cray-cray…Anyways, the recipe is for fruit & chocolate cupcakes, specifically blackberry & milk chocolate for the female line and raspberry & white chocolate for the male line (specifics for each mon detailed below). Yup, pink for boys and blue for girls, because gender norms are silly, right? Now, let’s make lots and lots of cupcakes!

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!

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!

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!).
