MoD's Baking Tutorials!
« on: July 12, 2014, 02:47:18 PM »
So, I want to start these soon (I finish work for summer on Wednesday, and hopefully our broadband will be sorted soon!) :D

What to do first though?
Victoria Sponge is really easy, and I love that's it's a 'courting cake'.
Exilian cupcakes - I'm thinking chocolate cakes, with blue vanilla icing.
Cookies/biscuits - also easy enough - I've done Pok├ęball sugar cookies before.

Thanks for the feedback :D

P.S. Wish we could've made the convention, and I could've handed out cupcakes :(

I think the sponge would be a good starting point. Also omnomnom sponge. Then Exilian cupcakes for episode II  :)

Well, i was going to get SotK to film them (sort of over my shoulder so it's from my perspective and you can see what's going on) and put them on the Exilian Channel on YouTube, and post a link to them here. I'm not going to do voice over, I'll put in text boxes with instructions and find some background music (it's easier to follow written instructions than to keep pausing and having to play the same part over and over). I'll post a thread for any questions people have about them too :)

Having tested its cake-storing ability, I am impressed with said tin :P 

Hoping to do the first one (Exilian Cupcakes!) really soon (like, tonight or tomorrow soon), but as we've not yet got a camcorder, it'll be pictures (lots of them, step-by- step) and instructions rather than video.
And, looking at how they turned out on the practice bake, they could double as Frozen cupcakes (possibly with vanilla sponge rather than chocolate) depending on your preference. :P

First tutorial has been filmed today - Exilian Cupcakes (in celebration of Exilicon 2014) :D

Need to edit it, and hopefully it will be on the YouTube channel really soon :)

Question: do I disable comments on the video itself and put in the video that questions and suggestions should come to Exilian.co.uk? (On the offchance anyone has any? ) :P
