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!).

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:
