When Bethesda’s epic The Elder Scrolls V: Skyim was first released in 2011 it came to no one’s surprise that the video game almost immediately hit cult classic status; it remains as loved to this day. The impressively vast, cleverly paced, and wondrously engaging action RPG has become a cultural touchstone, reaching a point very few games these days can boast. It makes sense that the dominant publishers would then want to do some playful promotions to coincide with the release of the game’s new-gen remake, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, and for Sydney, Australia they’ve tapped some of the best damn bakers around, Bourke Street Bakery, to recreate the game’s famed Sweet Rolls.
A Sweet Roll is one of the best known items in The Elder Scrolls universe, dating all the way back to the very first game in the series. They look like mini volcanic sugar hits, and the expert team at Bourke Street Bakery seek to recreate these pastries faithfully with their own twist, and their own recipe. We all know Sweet Rolls are made from a straight forward mix of milk, flour, butter, eggs, and salt, and that’s pretty much what the recipe below is made up of, but the ingredients and measurements are a bit more refined.
In case you didn’t already know, the upcoming Special Edition of Skyrim is brimming with add-ons and a few new features such as remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth field, screen-space reflections, new quests, more environments, extra characters, and of course more weapons and armour. There will also be a creation kit for mods on all platforms.
The new version of Skyrim will be released in Australia this Friday 28th October, so for the weekend Bourke Street Bakery plan to give their Sweet Rolls to gamers and sugar fiends alike, in-store, for free. On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th, anyone will be able to head along to any of their eleven Sydney stores from 10am to grab and digest a piece of Elder Scrolls. All you’ve gotta do is ask for one (they won’t be on public display to ensure those who really want one, get one).
Thousands of Sweet Rolls will be available but they’ll be available on a first come, first serve basis with a strict limit of one per customer per day. Just take note that all Bourke St Bakery products may contain traces of flour, sesame seeds, soy, tree nuts, olive pips, and gluten. For any updates you can follow the bakery on Facebook.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition will be available across Australia from Friday 28th October, for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
