As you fellow Trekkers are no doubt aware, the new movie premiers this Friday. To help get y'all sufficiently pumped, I've got an appropriately out-of-this-world line up today.
First, and probably the most impressive of them all, is this bit of awesomeness by Edward and Antoni Frys of European Cake Gallery:
Ed sent this in last week, explaining that as a Trekkie it's something he's always wanted to do. (I'm pretty sure he was referring to the construction of the cake, though, not his attempt to eat his way through the saucer section.) The support structure took him and his brother 3 days to weld, and lest any of you should question his Trekkie status, he also tells me the ship design is the NCC-1701 "refit" used in the first three movies. Ok, Edward, I think we believe you. ;)
Ed also sent along some progress shots, so you can see all the work that went into this masterpiece. First, the body set in a specially carved foam support base:
And Maggie A. sent in this simple-but-elegant groom's cake:
Here's a whole spread found by Nina B. at Cakery Bakery:
And lastly, I'd be remiss if I didn't include the cake Duff made:
Although I'm pretty sure everyone on the planet has seen this thing by now, considering the slight amount of controversy it caused. Thanks to Jennifer W. for being the first to send it in.
That's all I've got for now, but I'm sure there are more Trek Sweets out there. If you have one you'd like to share, send it to me at Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com.
*And that really is an excellent combination, if I do say so myself.
