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!

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!

The Charmander family burning bright

Welcome back baking trainers and Pokémon bakers! We hope you enjoyed our first recipe, and have recovered from the experience of lime,mint & rum cupcakes. This time we’ll be bringing you a slightly more normal, but just as fun, recipe to make everyone’s favourite fire starter family (Charmander also happens to be both Nicole & Siobhán’s favourite starter, so they’re extra tasty cakes 😉 ) Charmander will be presented with a little spice as cinnamon & honey mini cupcakes, getting hotter with the addition of cloves, nutmeg and ginger for Charmeleon fairy cakes and with a final fire blast shot of whiskey for large Charizard cupcakes. These cupcakes are seriously yummy and seriously pretty when iced (see our instructions below), we whole heartedly recommend everyone try them! We used honey in the buttercream icing to great success- seriously, honey icing is totally delicious and we’re both shocked that we’d never heard of it before. You need to taste it, and so, here’s the recipe:
