Setting up the addin build process

Now that we have our Cake addin written, it's time to put the finishing touches on and utilise the Cake teams preferred way of building addins - Cake.Recipe. I've written about getting started with Cake.Recipe, and there might be some crossover with that post, but most the content should be new.
