ESB Monthly Bake

----Watch the video----Relive the songs----Make it yourself----

Every month in 2016, I produced a new video under the name of ESB Monthly Bake with a brand new recipe and 4 songs to accompany it. Watch the video to see the ESB make it, and then listen to the songs while you make the recipe yourself.
