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!

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!

Squirtle! Wartortle! Blaistoise! Go!

Hello valued followers and welcome intrepid newbies! In this post we bring you the final addition to the starter families; Squirtle, Wartortle & Blastoise. It will be our last cupcake recipe for a while as we intend to branch out into bolder, exciting & new Bakémon territory- but never fear these cupcakes are totally delicious and totally fun! It’s also our first recipe involving chocolate, so it’s basically guaranteed to be awesome 😉 So what are we making? We felt blue turtles were best captured as blueberry & chocolate chip cupcakes with different chocolate shells on top. Squirtle begins as blueberry & white chocolate chips with a white chocolate shell, becoming Wartortle with the addition of milk chocolate chips & a milk chocolate shell, finally evolving to Blastoise by adding dark chocolate chips & a dark chocolate shell (& sweetie cannons!). There’s nearly a kilo of chocolate in this recipe it’s that chocolicious, and if you follow our instructions you’ll end up with some pretty amazing looking turtles! So what are you waiting for, let’s begin!
