Item Level 80
Use: Cupcakes make you happy.
This item isn't available on a vendor; you have to make your own! The recipe drops from pretty much any mob in Northrend and can be learned by anyone with a cooking skill level of 350 or higher.
... Or you can just continue reading, and make one of your own without having to farm a lot of mobs. It's up to you!
In order to accept this quest, you will need the following:
- 4 Tablespoons flour
- 4 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cocoa
- 1 egg
- 3 Tablespoons milk
- 3 Tablespoons of oil
- 1 mug
This quest is going to take you to a new zone -- the microwave!
- Read your quest text. Get your mug, and mix the flour, sugar and cocoa together.
- Follow the NPC directions. Add one egg; make sure you've looted a good egg. We don't need any eel eggs in this thing.
- Check your location on the minimap. Mix in your milk and oil -- and please, no Greasy Whale Milk.
Make sure your concoction is mixed together well, and click the microwave door to start the quest. Microwave the mug for 3 minutes on maximum power. This is for a 1,000-watt microwave; you may need to adjust times if your microwave has a lower wattage.
Enjoy the cutscene as the cake rises in the mug. Wait for it to set in the mug before removing it from the microwave, and be careful -- it's going to be hot!
For a different twist, you can use the following:
- dark, bittersweet or flavored cocoa
- flavored instant coffee (think Maxwell House's International Cafe or something along those lines)
- 3 Tablespoons applesauce instead of oil
- chocolate or peanut butter chips
- pecans or walnuts
After waiting for the cutscene to finish, tip the contents of the mug into a bowl or onto a saucer. Top with fruit preserves, chocolate syrup, chocolate chips or ice cream, and dig in!
When most people think of cupcakes, they think of frosting-topped confections. With this cupcake, you can have a piece of warm, fresh cake any time you'd like! While it's not the same as a full-fledged decorated masterpiece, this easy-to-make cake offers the opportunity for even a novice player to receive a substantial upgrade in the dessert slot. Plus, the only cleanup required is washing out the mug -- and that's enough to make anyone happy
