Windows cmd for mysql when using cmder?

I'm using a windows machine (which for the record, Hampton, I'm sorry but you don't cater to any of us in any of your videos, not everyone is a mac user), with cmder as my terminal.

I finally, after several days of installing, reinstalling, modifying, codifying, and tears, got rake db:create to function correctly. I then go to execute mysql -uroot and discover that cmder is not configured with mysql as a command. How can I execute this command on a windows machine? What aliases do I need to create in order to do what Hampton is attempting to instruct me?
