Baking Bad, formerly known as Bad Cooking, is a CallMeKevin series where Kevin tries to cook delicious desserts. As the title of the series suggests, and despite the questionnable chef qualifications shown in the first episode, the result is often disappointing.
Kevin tried to bake four desserts for the moment: Baked Alaska, Macarons, Chocolate Lava Cakes, Éclairs.
As a true chef, Kevin often ends his recipes with "Bon appétit" (or "Bon appétat" which means nothing) or the classic "et voilà".
Kevins blames the meringue has the downfall of his Baked Alaska. Although Kevin enjoys the sponge, he explains that it is “too sugary”. Even though Kevin believes he got diabetes from a single bite, he thinks the cooking ”went well”.
The macarons seem to be the best (or should it be the least worst) dessert Kevin baked. Indeed, despite their outrageous shape and the lack of colour, Kevin gave them an OK/10 rating for the taste.
Kevin says he has “never seen anything look exactly like dogshit and still be edible”. Kevins Chocolate Lava Cakes aren't cakes at all, rather hot chocolate with butter and eggs.
Much like Kevin’s other dishes, his Éclairs don’t end up looking like Éclairs at all. Kevin describes the taste as “not bad”, claiming he “likes it” even though it doesn’t taste like an éclair.
One of the most famous tips from the series is using the pocket of his apron. This technique allows him to access easily egg yolks stored there, sugar, or can even be used to break eggs.
Despite the fact that these videos make less views than the regular Let's Play ones, it's a topic very appreciated by the subscribblers.
During an "Ask Me Anything" session on his subreddit, Kevin said he would like to bake more food, but his kitchen setup is not great enough to do so at the time. Plus, he does not have the time. Anyway, he affirms he hopes there will be more episodes.
