Request: Minecraft – Cake

Difficulty - 3.5

I purposefully don’t play Minecraft; though enough of my friends have harassed me to play it and I’ve heard nothing bur praises. I’ve spoken before of my horribly addictive personality and I know that if I got involved in Minecraft I would never again see the light of day and they’d find my shrivelled, malnourished corpse collapsed over my laptop. It would be a good way to go, but just not yet. Either way Minecraft Cake has been on my list for a while now and enough of you have been asking for it so here you go!

Request: Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - Yeto’s Soup

Difficulty - 2.5

I had planned on doing this soup for a while so when I got a number of requests through for anything from Zelda I thought this seasonal soup would fit in nicely. Also since most of us will be taking part in my favourite activity of pumpkin carving next week it would be useful to have a pumpkin based recipe. I have fond memories of Twilight Princess, it felt a lot more traditional than incarnations such as Wind Waker, although I must admit my favourite Zelda is actually Links Awakening (controversial). Yeto’s Soup comes from Yeto, a rather cuddly looking yeti, in the Snowpeak Ruins. His wife, Yeta, is very sick but you can help by giving Yeto the ingredients for his healing soup. It goes through three stages of strength – a Reekfish creates a Simple Soup, adding an Ordon Pumpkin makes Good Soup and finally adding Ordon Goats Cheese makes it a Superb Soup that restores eight hearts. Obviously I’m going for the full eight heart Superb Soup here.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep – Spark Lemon

Difficulty - 2.5 Hearts

After what has seemed like an eternal winter (I’ve worn some kind of coat every day for over a year now) the sun has made it’s way back North to Edinburgh. This unseasonable warmth has been glorious; barbecues in the park, lunch on Calton Hill and far too much exposed white flesh. Of course, I’m currently missing out on what is probably going to be our only week of sun for the year because I have a horrible cold. I thought I was going to have to miss this weeks post but then I realised I could make something that would be both medicinal and gaming related – as the two seem to go hand-in-hand for me anyway. I’d been holding back attempting this amazing looking treat for a suitable time to post, but now seems as good a time as any. For anyone local enjoying the weather, or someone like me with a sore throat, this Kingdom Hearts Spark Lemon sundae is perfect.

Request: The Sims - Goopy Carbonara

Difficulty - 2 Hearts

Despite my love of pasta/spaghetti, I’ve never made carbonara in my life. I’m mostly familiar with it coming in a powdered form in packets that you add milk to, with the result being more oddly acidic than creamy or delicious. I also understand that this is possibly the most bastardised recipe in Italian history, and in the effort of gaming authenticity I’ll be destroying carbonara once again by using cream and an onion, as is a mandatory inventory staple for any Sim.

Please make sure you have a smoke alarm installed before going any further, and don’t get distracted by a sudden urge to use the bathroom - the results could be disastrous! If a Sim can master this classic by Level 2, then so can anyone (or so you’d hope).

Request: Pokémon – Lava Cookies

Difficulty - 2.5 Hearts

Lavaridge Town’s speciality, and now a Gourmet Gaming speciality too! Originally, the Lava Cookie is referred to as a “rice cracker” which frankly doesn’t sound too exciting, so I turned to the awesome poké visual appeal of this trusty status heal for inspiration. Combining the idea of an Asian “rice cracker” and a “cookie”, I was pleasantly surprised by my rash decision to create the Lava Cookie as an “East meets West” fusion of strong, bitter chocolate chips and aromatic, salty nori in a sweet and chewy all-American cookie. Perfectly restoring and unusually delicious, for pokémon and trainer alike.

Yoshi’s Cookie – Yoshi Cookies

Difficulty - 2.5 Hearts

I first encountered Yoshi’s Cookies on Game and Watch Gallery 3 which I had for my Gameboy Color. The updated, ‘modern’, version of “Egg” on the cartridge involved Yoshi eating some Yoshi Cookies as prepared by Chef Mario. I never did get along very well with the Game and Watch Gallery, it was all about personal bests and high scores, and, as a renowned confident loser of the world, I was always uninterested in competing with myself. One thing I did want to do was eat those cookies though. I had dreams about those cookies against a haunting rendition of that ever panic-inducing music.

Request: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker – Grandma’s Elixir Soup

Difficulty: 1.5 Hearts

Believe it or not, I didn’t have many friends growing up. When I got to High School I was lucky enough to have one friend who also played games, who interestingly enough looked an awful lot like Link… He invited me over to his house with the intention of playing the Resident Evil GameCube remake, but instead we played the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. All day. And wished we could consume this soup.

The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire – Snowberry Crostata

Difficulty - 3 Hearts

Hearthfire, or “Sim-rim” as I like to call it, was released as DLC for The Elder Scrolls V this week. I’m not sure if while wandering the beautifully stark landscape of Skyrim one of the thoughts in your mind was “This sure is the perfect place to start a family!” (it’s not, it’s full of dragons), but build ye shall.

A Snowberry Crostata is the perfect dish for a citizen of Skyrim; Snowberries are renown for their frost and fire resisting properties, and what’s better after a day out Fus-Ro-Dah’ing or getting lost in a Dwemer ruin than a home baked treat.

Guild Wars 2 – Chocolate Omnomberry Cake

Difficulty - 4.5 Hearts

It’s been a shocking length of time since there’s been a cake on Gourmet Gaming, so I thought I’d challenge myself with something that only a master baker in the land of Tyria can achieve. On your travels across many a Vista you may discover some Omnomberries. There’s a lot you can do with these delicious, mythical fruits, but no matter the land a cake is always popular. Whether you’re skilled enough to combine your wet and dry ingredients just right, or wealthy enough to procure such a delicacy from the towns patisserie a Chocolate Omnomberry Cake is a worthy treat.
