I made edible Pikachu pairs for Valentine's Day!

The Pikachu heads are pound cake dyed yellow in a Pikachu-shaped mold, and the tails are cookies dyed the same shade of yellow! I made a little template of male and female Pikachu tails and used those to cut each cookie.

I made the hearts with milk and white chocolate using a mold, and each colour has a different candy filling. :D

Ohhhh nice! This is the mold I have, it's from Japan! Do you have the same one? I know ThinkGeek also released one recently that I kind of want (even though it would be super redundant)...

Thank you! I made a template of the Pikachu tails using Photoshop, cut it out, and traced that in the raw cookie dough to get the shapes! :>

Today is Pokemon's 21st anniversary! To celebrate, I made a cute little Pikachu out of milk and white chocolate based on the Festive Chu currently in Pokemon GO!

    You've really got a knack for this sort of thing, and I absolutely love the Pikachu Valentines. My only criticism concerns consistency: in repeated dishes, like your Meowth cookies, they tend to look a bit messy and unsymmetrical. Being able to streamline your design might be just the thing to really bring these desserts to life and look more official!

    I can't wait to see what else you're going to make!

    Ahaha, I would so love to cater for you if you lived nearby!

    Thank you so much! Yeah, it definitely bugs me that I can't always get everything looking A) perfect, and B) consistent. I am a total perfectionist and can often spend hours on a given piece, but there definitely comes a point where I just have to get it done if I don't want the food to become unappetizing or go to bed crazy late or miss the birthday party I'm bringing the piece to. The Meowth were especially tough since the whiskers were so delicate and finicky! I don't mind my work looking homemade (since it is!) but I definitely do want it to look more professional. Part of that is definitely going to involve better time management!

    Thank you so much for your constructive feedback, I really appreciate it! :D

      Thank you so much! :D I really liked making them for Halloween. I like to be inspired to make food based on holidays, which actually brings me to...



      Snorunt hamantaschen!

      Today is Purim, a special holiday in the Jewish faith where we celebrate bring saved from death at the hands of an evil man named Haman. To celebrate, we tell the ancient story, give gifts, dress in costumes, drink ourselves silly, and eat hamantaschen!

      Hamantaschen, or Oznei Haman, are pastries whose Yiddish and Hebrew names literally translate to “Haman’s ears” or “Haman’s pockets.” They’re made with a thick dough and a filling centre, cut unto circles and folded up. Popular fillings include poppy seed, prune, date, apricot, jam, and chocolate.

      I’ve never made hamantaschen before, but I wanted to give it a shot, and of course I had to put my own twist on it, so I made them look like Snorunt!

      To do this, I made my dough using this recipe and coloured it both yellow and orange. Using cookie cutters, I cut the yellow into a simple circle, and cut the orange into a sort of ring using two different sized cutters. I then attached the yellow circle and orange ring. For the fillings, I used Nutella, plus a little bit of home-made cookie dough filling to make the mouth.

      Once baked, it was time to decorate! I made tiny blue eyes using blue Winton candy melts, putting some in the microwave and making little dots for eyes until they hardened. The hands and feet are made of a delicious mixture of Oreo crumbs, chocolate icing, and a bit of Nutella, rolled into balls and chilled in the fridge. I attached these with some melted white chocolate. Lastly, I used a black food colour marker to make the teeth.

      They were definitely not easy to make, and they're not as neat as I would have liked, but I'm pretty proud that I pulled it off!

      I made mini Power Ranger cakes for two birthdays! When sniffing out ideas for the guys’ cakes, I learned they both love Power Rangers! So I made their two favourite Rangers: The Blue Ranger from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and the Wolf Ranger from Power Rangers Jungle Fury.

      The cakes are each three layers of chocolate cake, separated with blue and purple buttercream respectively! The helmets are made of melted white and milk chocolate. I’m honestly super impressed with how the mouth area on Blue came out! I was initially going to make his lips white, but I didn’t like the look of it, so I scraped it off and used white for the highlights around the lips instead. Just enough of the original white remained that it created a really cool effect! I’m really happy with the results, and plan to keep making more mini cakes!

      I got my first-ever cookie commission! A friend commissioned me to make cookies of his partner's favourite characters!

      Here’s Stitch from Lilo and Stitch, Munchlax from Pokémon, and Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon!

      I was a bit nervous making these since I have less experience with cookies, but they were all characters I know and like, so I was excited to take it on! My partner helped me with every step of the process, so it was a real collaboration. My partner made the Munchlax cookies, and I made most of the Stitch and Toothless ones. We alternated making some of the shapes and details. I’m pretty proud of how they came out!

      Today was National Donut Day, so I made more malasadas from Pokémon Sun and Moon! I used a redux of the recipe I used in my last malasada post, but I only had time to do one design, so I made Alolan Raichu using buttercream icing! I also posted progress photos on my Tumblr.

        I am hungry and seeing this. These malasadas around Raichu (and it itself) seem very good.
        I'm gonna eat something ~_~

        Haha, thank you! I can definitely recommend malasadas as a snack, especially when they're home-made! It's a great recipe that I would highly recommend.



        My partner and I made cookies for a Pokemon gift swap I participated in, based on my recipient’s favourite Pokémon - Rotom!

        This was a collaborative project between me and my partner! She baked the cookies, and together we iced them freehand - not our strong suit, but I’m so proud of how they came out! I think I can confidently say our icing skills (and my Photoshop skills) are slowly improving.
