I made these Star Trek Combadge Cookies for my son’s 14th birthday. They have Star Trek: The Original Series Badges, Star Trek:The Next Generation Combadges, Star Trek :Deep Space Nine Combadges, and Star Trek: Into Darkness badges from Star Trek the Alternate Universe.
My son is a huge Star Trek fan and he likes all of the versions of Star Trek so I wanted to make him Star Trek cookies that would represent most of the Star Trek series.
I had a lot of fun making these cookies and I learned more about cookie making in general. The cookies were butter cookies decorated with royal icing. I realized that my icing was too thick, thus the bumps on the cookies. Next time I will know to make the icing thinner. The gold and silver were painted with gold and silver luster dust. I did a very thin black line around each part of the cookies to highlight the features of the cookies and make each feature stand out.
I have included pictures and descriptions of the cookies below.
Here are the Star Trek Cookies that represent the Engineering, Command, and Science uniforms and speciality patches from Star Trek and Original Series and Star Trek the Alternate Universe.
Here are the cookies from Star Trek: The Original Series. This is one of my favorite versions of Star Trek.
This Star Trek cookies represents Nurse Chapel’s blue uniform. She wore an speciality patch with a red cross in the middle. I found out this piece of trivia while making these cookies.
Scotty wore a red uniform with a gold Engineering speciality patch or badge. This Star Trek cookie represents Scotty’s uniform.
This Yellow Command Badge Star Trek Cookie represents the yellow uniform worn by William Shatner when he played Captain Kirk. The gold badge or patch with the elongated star in the center represents Command.
This Star Trek Cookie represents the Science speciality and is surrounded by a blue uniform. This was worn by Mr. Spock and Doctor McCoy.
This Star Trek cookie was done using a much thinner version of blue royal icing.
These cookies use the silver badges from Star Trek Alternate Reality films: Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness starring Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Mr. Spock, and Simon Pegg as Scotty.
This is the command insignia that Captain Kirk wore. The uniform is yellow and the command patch or badge is silver with an elongated star in the middle to represent Command.
This Star Trek cookie represents Engineering. The shirt is red and the Engineering patch or badge is silver. This was worn by Scotty.
These are Combadges from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.
This is a Star Trek: The Next Generation Combadge Cookie. The Communicator Badge is gold and silver. It is surrounded by a red uniform for Command.
This Communicator Badge is from later seasons of Deep Space Nine and from Voyager. The gold and Silver Combadge is surrounded by a black uniform because the top of these uniforms were black and the bottom of the uniforms were the speciality colors: red, blue, and yellow.
I highly recommend Mallory Mae’s cookie making class on Craftsy. I am still learning a lot about how to put into practice the information that I learned from her class.
