What’s a birthday without a special something to eat? Treat the RPR to a special something for its 14th birthday!

To enter:
In this contest, you must bake or cook something. Post pictures or the recipe -- bonus points for both! Please explain in your post why you chose the meal, and how it relates to the theme.

Your entry must somehow be themed to fit one of these categories:
  • The RP Repository
  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Science, Gaming or other Nerdly Pursuits

A cake with an RPR slogan in icing? Yes please. Your recreation of the “coney stew” that Samwise Gamgee prepared for Frodo while they were on the long path to Moria? Absolutely. Rock candy you somehow crafted into perfect d20s? Genius!

You cannot enter pictures of food other people created, nor post unaltered recipes made by someone else; ie something you got out of a cookbook or magazine. Make sure it’s truly your culinary creation.

You may use molds and other special tools, so long as they are in support of a larger effort, not just something you purchased and submitted. For example, if you were to simply submit a picture of a chocolate millennium falcon you made by pouring white chocolate into a purchased mold, you would be disqualified. If on the other hand you used the resultant chocolate spaceship as part of an asteroid-field battle themed scene cake, that would be okay.

Prizes:
  • 2023 RPR tote bag (Real life prize - we’ll ship one to you) Totebags won in contests have some surprises inside them!
    • 2024 RPR tote bag - (Real life prize - we’ll ship one to you) Totebags won in contests have some surprises inside them! Please note that I won’t be able to ship this until after the genre mascot art contest completes and we know what this design will be. :)

    Deadline:
    The last day to post a submission is June 2nd
Ok so I'm gonna start us off with some Moussaka.

So, the way it ties in is because of a story that me and bestest best friend started. Between our characters. James spent a good amount of time making dinner for his complicated girlfriend, Thalia. Using her mother's recipe while she rested her swollen ankle. It was a touching scene and I love the characters so that's what I made. Though I think Thalia's mother might just yell my head off for how I did it lol.

As for the recipe... I'm not even gonna try. It has eggs and eggplant, red wine, salt pepper... And so much more stuff but boy is it worth the hassle.

It tasted pretty good.

This week on nailed it, Crystie decided to bake a cake.

Red velvet cakes, with an attempted space theme (in which the black didn’t take in my food coloring)

I kind of tossed up whether I wanted to stay true to the anime or make it fancy. But it was a simple family dish and I decided to keep it that way :D

Also a question: Can we enter twice 👀 I was actually in the midst of preparing this when I got a second idea!
I absolutely love this contest and the nice things you all come up with!
However, what I really want to complain about:
Can mankind maybe invent technology to actually remote try these from the computer screen please?
They look so yummy! :D
Here's a little something put together for my dairy-allergic-love. It's a very simple sugar cookie recipe. Extra on the vanilla, less on the flour than most, and safe for my partner to eat. Needless to say though, the buttons melded together, the head is too round, and the expression makes him look bootleg as heck.

... Safe to say it's somewhat similar and just as frustrating to have put together as it was battling the actual beast!
The snow Monsters!!!!
I'm wheezing! Magnificent!
