Oh, the weather outside is frightful... and you need some emergency Christmas foodstuffs to feed the terrorists who have just invaded your workplace and are holding everyone hostage. You ask for miracles. I give you: Die Hard cupcakes.
Step One: Using the elevator shaft, sneak your way past the terrorists to get to the kitchen. Find these ingredients.
100g SR flour
25g cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Step Two: Mix the ingredients and cook the cupcakes for around 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
Step Three: Provided the coast is still clear, roll out some white icing - remember to dust the counter with Ellis' cocaine first to stop it from sticking - and cut out a vest-shaped chunk.
Step Four: Now get some black icing and roll it into several very small sausages - about the length of a joint in your finger. Assemble into a gun.
Step Five: Use a knife to score a pattern on the butt, then use a cake tester (or skewer) to carve out the barrel. Stop when it's lifelike enough to fool one of the terrorists. You know, the stupid German one.
Step Four: Once the cupcakes are as cool as Hans Gruber, the coast should be clear. Sneak back to the kitchen and use some water to stick the vest and the gun on the top of the cake. Then find one of the dead terrorists and scoop up some blood in a teacup. Drip the blood on top of the best to complete the full John McClane effect.
Step Five: Go back up the elevator shaft, blow some stuff up and present the cupcakes to Alan Rickman. The terrorists will either love them so much they'll let you go or they'll spend so long eating them that Sgt. Al Powell will have the time to climb up the stairs and surprise them from behind. (Once he smells those cupcakes - he'll come running.)
