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.
