Some of the other lovely and delicious recipes by Yuki found on her website 

Visit the Gothtober Countdown Calendar and CLICK DAY FOUR to see a brand new recipe by Yuki Okada!

From the creator of AryaBakesAPie.com comes a brand new bloody good recipe for Red Wedding Molten Cakes! Yuki Okada decided to create a series of illustrated recipes based on the HBO Blockbuster show, Game of Thrones. For Gothtober, she’s created a red velvet/molten cake combo recipe in honor of the most infamous wedding in Westeros!  It involves a ganache center, ramekins, heating, chilling, and a whole lot of passion, dismay, deceit, despair… aw hell just… ALL THE FEELINGS.

The resulting cakes, if you follow instructions, will mix together lovely presentation with a delectably gooey center that is aptly named “2 Weddings and a Funeral.”

Glitched Party Gothtober DAY 3

Visit the Gothtober Countdown Calendar and CLICK DAY THREE to see today’s Gothtober Piece!

It’s been a long time since I was eleven years old, and I don’t know what people who are eleven do, or think, or even what kind of social events they attend outside of school. Luck would have it that we’ve got a SPECIAL INSIDER VIEW from Eleven-year-olds in 2018 about an apparent GLITCHED PARTY!

Francis and Clyde, our young and upcoming international film makers, have teamed up to bring you a cinematic experience shot in what is USUALLY the peaceful church and Cementiri de Deia (Mallorca), Islas Baleares. But this is NOT peaceful, this is GLITCHED! You are invited beyond the gates to do some dancing… if you dare.



Matt Katz Topless Piano Magic for Gothtober Day 2

Visit the Gothtober Countdown Calendar and CLICK DAY  TWO to see today’s Gothtober Piece!

Imagine my surprise, my delight, my utter THRILL to receive this piece for Gothtober and present it to you. Matt Katz is one of my favorite musicians, I’ve only sung with him once, but I’d do it again in two shakes of a lamb’s tail! When he said he’d do a song for us, I was over the moon.

Here you can have a wonderful musical experience whilst gazing at his fine form playing a beautiful song by Goldfrapp. But this is no routine tickling of the ivories all regular style. He’s playing it topless AND blindfolded AND wearing what looks like a knit executioner-style hood from Robin Hood days!?!

In his own words, Matt says

“This song represents a story of mystery, of a person falling in love with danger for brief moment, and seemingly pays the ultimate price for curiosity. I chose to put my self in danger and play blindfolded. Happy Gothtober yall!”

I love how it sounds perfectly autumn-like, you can feel the temperature getting cooler, maybe some wet sidewalks and skittering leaves… and there’s a pensive, gloomy longing in the tune enticing you just around the bend for every note.

You could put this in your headphones and stand in front of a bog or a marsh, looking into the distance, wistfully, pulling your cloak a little closer to keep from shivering.

Gothtober Day 27: A Recipe from the Kitchen of Yuki Okada

Visit www.gothtober.com and click on DAY 27 to get a rather tasty recipe from Yuki Okada, author and illustrator of Arya Bakes a Pie, which is her website hosting recipes inspired by the HBO series “Game of Thrones.” You can look up recipes by course, OR by house, so for Gothtober, she decided to share with us a recipe from House Stark!
All these recipes have been cooked, tested, written, designed and illustrated by Yuki who is really adept at doing all of the things just listed.
For this particular recipe, she made multiple savory pies and tested the recipe oh… I dunno, like FIVE TIMES to get just the right technique and ingredients! It’s a biggie deep dish pie, you gotta use a springform pan, which is a lil’ advanced, but totally worth it. As the days get shorter and cooler, you’re gonna need a pie like this one to get you through winter because… winter is coming.
