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.
Welcome to our very first Pokémon baking experiment. With this recipe we’ve tried to take inspiration from the very first 3 Pokémon and much loved starter family; Bulbasaur, Ivysaur & Venusaur. Starting with mini lime cupcakes representing Bulbasaur, we evolve to lime & mint cupcakes for Ivysaur and again to large lime, mint & rum cupcakes for Venusaur. Yes, this is an odd combination of flavours for cupcakes but we feel they capture the spirit of the Bulbafamily and if you get the proportions right they’re very tasty (read: we may have added too much rum in our batch, we have adjusted the recipe accordingly below 😉 )
