For the Horde – DIY World of Warcraft Brownies
I noes I haven’t updated my blog in
a few months more than a year, but I’ve been busy working at a small, local news startup. Since one of my New Year’s resolutions was to be a more diligent blogger, I thought I would start this year off with a *whiz-bang*, non-technical post!
(I guess it’s pretty ironic that I’m posting this in
January August, huh? )
Last December, I was invited to a Christmas Party. Not your standard-fare holiday party, mind you, but a “World of Warcraft Guild” Christmas Party. Wanting to bring something unique to the potluck, I ended up making “For The Horde Brownies”… and this is a blog detailing the experience.

With that said, you can use <insert your favorite brownie mix here> to make the brownies or if you’re feeling exceptionally adventurous, maybe use one of these recipes. Whatever your poison, just make sure it appears edible – enough to trick your guests with; kind of like this.

While baking your magical brownies, print out the enclosed Horde pdf. You’ll want to make a few copies to practice your X-Acto skills on. Of course, if your scissor-fu is amazing, feel free to wield those instead. (It took me two tries with the X-Acto to get it just right). After you’ve finished removing the Horde symbol, it should resemble the following:

After you have a cut out of the Horde symbol, you can use the powdered sugar to apply the symbol to your brownies. If you mess up, like I did, fret not.
Your final product should end up looking something like the following:
As usual, I must give props where props are due.
