Here is my contest entry.

Character: Bumblebread

Category: True-in-Heart

On a beautiful moonlit night such as this, you just have to put your differences aside and enjoy some delicious cake <3

On this tiny planet, it took a lot of coaxing to convince the Ur-Draug to sit still for a photo and not attack me. I died 10 times just finding the respectable distance between us to place the cake.

It took 673 screenshots, and 6 cakes to finally get right, with the final image using 78 images and coming in at the equivalent of 158megapixels (the full image is 57mb! :scream:).
But it was all worth it, just to share some delicious cake with my monstrous friend.

Hey Vomer and everyone reading! Here is my submission for the Romantic Cake Creation Contest!

I decided to go with True-to-Life as it’s Valentines Day and my wife loves a good chocolate cake. So I present for my entry a chocolate cake with raspberry coconut buttercream and a raspberry jam layer in the middle.

Adding the coconut, by the way, was an accident. The bottle containing vanilla extract just happens to look exactly like the bottle containing coconut extract, and it wasn’t until it was already added that I noticed the error. Ah well. Didn’t hurt the overall deliciousness of the cake, though. :smiley:

There’s an old saying.

“Though Templar’s cannot bake it doesn’t matter because all things Templars make are extraordinary in every way.” ~ A Real Templar (Right Now)

I can’t give away all the secrets but it started with some brainstorming. We prefer not to use the brain as the Pope declares that oxygen is better suited to maintain a Templars godlike figure. I cannot argue that but it still bothers me to this day every time the Pope tells me this. As I had never baked a cake before I decided I would make an acceptance this once.

And there it was. Within moments I had mastered baking. Any longer and I feared I might be better suited as a Dragon or Lumie. But no as per usual my abilities far exceeded my all ready overflowing ego.

Something was terribly wrong though. It didn’t have a cross on it. I mean that’s pretty much the coolest thing about being a Templar we have the sickest crosses. I swear people will be getting these things as tattoos for centuries after our time.

Admittedly that’s a terrible cross, but were under oath to not release our most coveted cross designs to the general public. Let you in on one secret though. Lumies once offered to be our slaves for 100 years if we gave them all our secrets. We laughed. We cant handle you for a 5 minute Shambala match let alone 100 years! Silly Lumies.

My old pal Richy loved it though. And the pope was like “DAMN SOOOONNNN give me a slice a that heart.” He always makes things so awkward around here.

I “baked” a heart that will easily crumple but has enough tissue paper to wipe your tears if you’re lonely on Valentine’s.

A collage of in-game screenshots: See, Sweetlings! Mr Rosenbaum’s cakes and the PurpleBee Delivery Service make every being in the Secret World jolly. Céline is using a particularly interesting tool to get her piece of cake. At least Akashi is delighted. And Flappy can’t wait to get a slice!
Perhaps they’ll even find a match with the Soulmate to share the sweetness. <3

Thanks for the inspiration and contest Vomher and Funcom!

character nickname Hydrangea

Hydrangea said and i quote
‘’ We joke that cake we eat in January is still good because it’s whiskey cake, so I made chocolate whiskey cake (Chocolate Whiskey Cake Recipe - NYT Cooking). It is cake with whiskey in, not cake soaked in whiskey, so don’t actually make it and eat it 11 months later. It’s very good! Sliced into 10 pieces for sharing, of course. ‘’

Character: Pinkhair

“Forty of them, you say? Ah, here they are.” Despite having received quite a number of texts from the man, the sight of Richard Sonnac talking on a smartphone seems vaguely peculiar here in his Temple Hall office.

You recognize one of the reports scattered across the desktop- your own handiwork, poking around in the ancient catacombs beneath Honesty Yard some time back. The others… Your heart sinks as your handler draws a glossy stack of photographs featuring a familiar heart shaped cake from another folder, but the accusatory glare you might have expected does not materialize.

Instead, he puts his phone on speaker, placing it on the desk between you. “You remember DI Shelley, no doubt,” he says. “Apparently, a cake thief has Darkside in terror,” he adds dryly. “And that is… terrible.”

“Oh, we found the cakes, Mr. Sonnac.” You can practically hear Maryanne Shelley’s sunny demeanor shining through. “Burnt Offerings, you know it? Bakery, corner of Æthelburga Row and Pagan Hill. Thirty nine of them, sitting pretty as you like right in the middle of the locked up store. Never delivered.”

As if anticipating Sonnac’s objection, she continues. “Of course, the moment Isabel Rosenbaum’s name came up as the buyer, this whole mess was headed for Agenda 71.”

“The daughter of…?”

“The same. Apparently she had some sort of party to cater. Found an invoice for enough damn cake to fill… Well, just the last batch went missing.” If Sonnac notices your fidgeting, he hides it well.

“There was more, of course. PC Maxwell smelled carrion- nothing too odd, so close to Darkside after a rain, but it was enough to take a look inside. He’s a good one; managed to keep his lunch off my crime scene till I showed up. He thought it was some sort of halal thing he found in the kitchen, you know, the blood drained. Maybe kosher. That’d do for the goat, but dogs are haram.”

Sonnac starts leafing through the rest of the photographs until he finds the scene in question. That one seems to get to him a little, but at least it looks like the animals were killed cleanly. Definitely ritualistic.

“Sacrifice, then?” he asks. “No Cabrit sans cor, at least?”

“Not yet. We found the blood with the last cake…”

“…Underground. Basins of blood and milk, dog statues, inscription, the works. Roman, I’d guess, dug through down under the basement, and that’s about the point where-”

“Wolf,” Sonnac comments, tips of his index fingers lightly drumming on another photo.

“Come again, Dick?”

Lupa Capitolina,” he clarifies. “The wolf that suckled the founders of Rome.” Giving you a long look, he taps the dark image; a statue wolf standing ankle-deep in a red stained basin. No mention of forty little tables, you note.

“I don’t need or want to know it, Mr. Sonnac. Rituals are one thing. Riddles are another. I’ve pulled my lads, got the tape up, let me know when Miss Rosenbaum can collect her bloody cakes.”

It can’t be more true-to-life than this. What can I say, this sweetling likes sweets.

Before it was placed down and shared with fellow bees, this is what it looked like.
