INSTRUCTIONS: Build your own bug out bag and display its contents here.

Optionally, customize it for a specific disaster. Feel free to get post-apocalyptic, but remember: keep it practical.

You have friends. And those friends are in dire need of baked goods.

What to do?

Well, I put together a handy-dandy bake-out-box.


There's the oven mitt, some flour, a box of icing sugar that has a stain from when I left a block of butter in the bake-out-box (oops), two mixing bowls, measuring spoons, regular sugar, a microplane, a spatula, an apron, a dishtowel, measuring cups and baking powder.

I also layer a cupcake tin on top.

I've taken the box to a friend's house this week and made lemon ginger cupcakes at his place, which turned out well. I'm keeping the stuff kitted together for the next time baked goods are needed.

You may wonder why I just don't bake in my kitchen. Well, I currently live in a studio flat that has a roach problem. Hence, the need to bake--and eat--elsewhere.

Some of the basic utensils and ingredients. All set to make some yummies.

Shady, wonderfully creative as always! I love reading about tasks done in a way that bucks the written word, but still maintains the spirit, and a bake-out-box accomplishes this with aplomb. Any pics of the BOB being used? Baked goods are always worth a 5 in my book.

Also, Mr. Scuffles didn't help? How sad, lol.

The evidence of the baked goods were devoured before I had a chance to photograph. Plus, it was late, and I had too much beer.

Mr Scuffles has been wasting his time away here in London being a lowlife and roustabout. I shall have to wrangle him into more tasks if I can tear him away from the seedy dens of sin and titillation he frequents so much.

However, if you would like evidence that I'm able to, ahem, get my bake on, you can view this link to a photo of stuff I made, as well as this.

Divine my dear, absolutely. Well made gingerbread is a miracle to come by here in Cali, and I must say, that one looks pretty good. I don't think the others appreciated the deviation from the task so much... Oh well.
