What’s a birthday without a special meal and a cake? Treat the RPR to a special something for its 8th 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 copyrighted recipes; 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:
The first place winner will get to pick any one of these prizes. Then second place picks from the remaining prizes, then third, etc.

Deadline:
Get all your entries in by May 17th.

Here's mine!

Name: Help me, I'm Dying.

1. Get a brains
2. Get hearts
3. Mush them up and put them in a bowl together
4. Stir it
5. Put disgusting guts over it
6. Stir again and your done!

This is for the zombies who are so shriveled up and can't even go into the sunlight! It's a dish of their favorite things they love and this dish is called "Help me, I'm dying." It's not a really good name but I think it'll do good! :) this meal is for the science fiction category.

Darling, I think this cooking contest actually means cooking real food? But thats one great recipe. Haha

Here is Epic Week's previous cooking Contest: OFFICIAL CONTEST: Epic Cooking 2016

Would it be okay for us to make a video making the recipe that we choose?

A bit shy about being the first, but here goes!

(: 3= Let's make some walrus cakes! (: 3=

(Cupcakes/muffins look the cutest, but you can decorate anything you want. Cookies, choc ice cream, your own face, the possibilities are endless.)

I tend to wing my cake mix, or buy premixed and add my own twists to it, so just choose your favorite recipe as the base! Here's some cheap things I substitute/add to my cake mixes for inspiration though:

Magic ingredients

Instant coffee/chocolate powder
Coconut butter (slightly melted) instead of regular butter
Half molasses/half caster sugar mix for a richer taste
Applesauce instead of egg

Frosting and decorations

50g peanut butter (softened)
50g coconut butter (softened)
200g icing sugar
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp milk/coconut milk/rum >.>

Red, yellow, white, blue, black icing pens
White ready roll icing
Silver sugar balls
Milk/dark chocolate buttons
Milk/dark chocolate drops

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Icing guide

Add the coconut butter, peanut butter, milk and honey into a bowl, and blend with a electric whisk (or fold it all in with a silicon knife and get swole arms) until smooth. Then add the icing powder in slooowly. If it turns out too thick/runny for you, just add more milk/icing sugar a tsp a time. Buttercream is real hard to mess up, you got this.

Try to resist eating all the frosting while you wait for those muffins to cool down. Now for the decorating:

(I forgot the icing here. So organised.)

Roll out a fairly thin (3mm or so) sheet of icing onto baking paper (or foil) and cut the shapes out with a sharp knife.

Peel away the excess then smooth the edges of the shapes with a wet fingertip if you want, and put into freezer until solid.

You can take this time to ice the cupcakes, making sure the frosting's at least 1cm thick so you can push all the decorations into it.

Now stick the buttons and chips on. Use an icing pen/melted chocolate as glue for the nose so it sticks firmly down.

Add silver balls, and push the tusks gently underneath the cheek buttons, then stick the rest on! Colour in the shapes with icing pens - a zigzag motion works best.

(If anyone gives this a go, I'd love to see!)

Thank you! Nothing is too cute for me to eat, I am an absolute monster at Easter. XD Those poor choc bunnies.

Rat, those cupcakes are adorable! Very fancy, much orp.

<3 Cheers Dragonfire!

Anyone else thinking of cooking something up? :) It doesn't have to include a recipe, only pics, and it can be no-bake, or even a drink.

Rat, that is fabulous!!

Are drink concoctions allowed too? I'm planning to hopefully whip something up but I need to go get supplies. In the meantime, though, I had a great drink idea :D

I am definitely planning on doing something, don't you worry. ;) It's just been a bit of a busy couple of weeks for Dragonfires!

Celestina - Drinks have been submitted in the past (and possibly have even won prizes, IIRC?)! I don't see why they wouldn't be allowed.
