Pokémon inspired baking

Tag Archives: lemon

Nom nom lemon/orange squares!We’re finally back from our Christmas bake-cation and ready to continue supplying the world with tasty Pokémon inspired treats. We’re picking up where we left off numerically, and what better way to start the New Year with a spark than with the most iconic Pokémon; Pikachu and Raichu! Pikachu has long been the face of Nintendo and has already been enshrined in everything from cupcakes to toothbrush holders, so we wanted to do something a little different to represent the electric mouse duo. We felt their electric type was best captured by tangy citrus fruits, so we made lemon bars for Pikachu and lemon & orange bars for Raichu. It’s a pretty straightforward recipe and the end results are very tasty so you have no excuse not to try it (well unless you’re weird and don’t like lemons…)! These are traybakes so we made 2 trays, one for Pikachu and one for Raichu, if you don’t think you’ll need that many lemon/orange bars you may opt to just make one or to find smaller trays (standard is 9″ by 13″). When finished we iced the bars with Pikachu & Raichu coloured lightning bolts in lemon glacé icing; if you’re a stickler for having your Pokémon inspired treats Look like the ‘mon then feel free to ice on a Pikachu or Raichu instead but this will take a long time and a lot of patience, especially to do ones that small! Be creative though, we like that.

Anyways, Pikachu, Raichu- I choose you!

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!
