Baking is a great way to pass the time while you’re stuck at home during social isolation, but making the same chocolate chip cookies all the time can get boring. If you love BTS, why not spice things up a little by trying out one of these 8 impressive and mouthwatering BT21-themed treats?
1. BT21 icing cookies
These BT21 icing cookies are one of the simplest baked goodies on this list. YouTuber Ari Kitchen walked fans through this easy-to-try recipe.
You’ll need cake flour, butter, brown sugar, an egg, powdered sugar, lemon extract, and food coloring. To make shaping the cookies as easy as possible, print out the BT21 characters and cut around them.
2. BT21 giant cookies
If those mini cookies aren’t enough to satisfy your sugar cravings, why not supersize them? Ari Kitchen also has a recipe for giant BT21 cookies.
You’ll need butter, sugar, eggs, almond powder, cake flour, and food coloring. Creating giant BT21 heads from dough may seem difficult, but Ari Kitchen walks you through each step.
3. BT21 cakes
If you prefer cakes, this Chimmy mango cake looks delicious. Cooking Tree guides you through the process of creating Chimmy’s head shape, then icing his face on top.
This recipe requires eggs, sugar, honey, vanilla extra, butter, milk, cake flour, mango, sugar, lemon juice, powdered sugar, whipping cream, vanilla extract, and food coloring. Of course, some of these ingredients can be substituted if you don’t have them to hand.
4. BT21 mini cakes
If you’re feeling even more ambitious, why not try making mini cakes of all the BT21 characters? You can follow the simple steps laid out by Tan Dulce by Grisel.
You can use any cake recipe for this, or even store-bought cakes as long as they’re un-iced. The video will show you just how to cut and ice each one. To make your life easier, print the characters on paper and cut around them.
5. BT21 pancakes
Pancake art has been popular for years now, so it’s no surprise that talented chefs have tried their hand at making the BT21 characters. TigerTomato is one of them.
Pancake artists tend to use a special frying plate, but you can always use a regular pan on a low heat. Any pancake recipe will work fine, but you’ll need to have food coloring and piping bottles or bags to hand.

If you’re an experienced cook and you’re ready for the ultimate challenge, here’s something big to attempt: giant BT21 candy from Team SeikaTV.
