I made this Star Trek cake for my son who is a huge Star Trek fan. I made a vanilla cake and covered it with fondant to make the uniform. My son loved the cake.
I also made this with phaser to go with it.
This cake was my attempt to seek out new birthdays and new civilizations and to boldly go where no cake of mine has gone before. I made this Star Trek cake for my son’s 13th birthday. He is a big Star Trek fan and wanted a Deep Space Nine Uniform with a phaser and a medical tricorder for his birthday cake this year. I made a vanilla cake and used fondant to create a Starfleet uniform. The phaser and tricorder were made using fondant and modeling chocolate.
My daughter and I made this Medieval Castle Cake for the Georgia Odyssey of the Mind competition. The Cake won first place. The Castle Cake was made from a Buttermilk pound cake covered in fondant and air-brushed. The Dragon was made from modeling chocolate and hand-painted with aqua-green luster dust. Here is the Peachy Odyssey of the Mind cake we made last year. It also won first place.
My daughter and I made this Lord of the Rings Cupcake Tower for my niece's birthday. The centerpiece was an Eye of Sauron Cake. The cake was covered in Fondant and hand painted.
Here’s a close-up of the Eye of Sauron Cake. When looking at images of the Eye of Sauron from the motion picture trilogy the Lord of the Rings, we noticed that the center of the eye looked like the One Ring. We tried to reflect that in our cake.
The side of the cake has the One Ring’s inscription. The letters are Elven. Translated, it reads:
One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
The cupcakes were hand painted to match the Eye of Sauron. Each has an Elven letter from the One Ring’s inscription on it.
