Cakes

Postby SekoETC » Sun Oct 13, 2013 12:04 pm

Cake - made in the oven

800 g egg
800 g wheat flour
700 g sugar

Tools: Cake tin, whisk, bowl

Makes 2000 g cake in 1 day. It might seem like a lot but considering how hard eggs are to get, it's really not that much.
Eaten 40 grams a day, would also heal.

Layer cake - made on kitchen table

2000 g cake
2000 g milk - to simulate cream
800 g raspberry or strawberry jam
2000 g raspberries or strawberries

Tools: whisk, bowl, knife

Probably not going to get added anyway but everybody likes cake, right?

Right. :) and jeepus that's a lot of eggs! I don't think if all my chars could combine their stashes of eggs they could come up with that! :)

Hear hear! Everyone loves a cake, sure, but this way it wouldn't be accessable to all of us cake lovers.

Sure the amount of eggs could be reduced, but once domestication of birds gets implemented, it might suddenly become too cheap. The numbers here are based on RL values and it would make 48 portions.

I'm the official spokesman of the blackberries and blueberries. They feel left out of this suggestion and are planning a strike!

Aren't they usually used for pie rather than cake?

That layer cake is HUGE! Almost 7 kilo's for one cake? :shock:

Maybe you should use a quarter of all ingredients per cake, and an eighth the amount of fruit for the layer cake. That way a single cake would be handleable.

Maybe (whip) cream can be introduced too: just creaming milk in a bowl for 1 hour.

I also want chocolate cake!
I think ...

I had blue- & strawberry cake every birtday when I was a kid. Blackberries were not to be found where I grew up. I guess they come with all kinds of fresh berries. Or frozen.

It's actually 4 12-person cakes. I made it big because it would be kinda silly if you could only make one cake a day, when you're working around the clock. Since it's not set duration, if you wanted a small cake, you could set up a 1 or 2 hour project instead.

I'm all for it, most of my chars are a little...hmmm, into spawndays so they would be baking cakes up like nobody's business, even the ones who would be more likely to burn them, Yes from me even with the eggs how they are...watch out red-tailed hawks! :twisted:

People seem to be leaning towards reducing the amount of eggs, so any suggestions on what would be a good amount of eggs?

I don't feel I'll be able to say anything about the eggs until I know how domesticated birds work out, but I can say I can't think of a character, mine or any I've met, with anywhere near enough eggs laying around or enough desire to decimate their bird population* to make one of these until then.

I can say though that I agree the black and blue berries feel missing. It looks like an oversight more than a feature.

*At least obvious desire. If I've met any characters who would be willing to kill so many birds, they haven't shown it.

EDIT: Actually, thinking about it yet again more deeply, I suppose I could picture a few characters making a one hour cake as a one time event with years in between. I suppose cakes as suggested are meant to be rare, then...

Maybe just halve it to 400 grams? That's still a lot of eggs, and if obtaining eggs from domesticated birds is going to be anything like milking from sheep/goat etc, there won't be much risk of it becoming too cheap. My char was most miffed after getting just 160 grams of milk out of 8 angora goats. I don't know if you have any idea how much it costs to feed them, but it's damn hard & expensive work.
