As part of the recent “Cake: The Final Frontier – A Celebration of 50 Years of Star Trek Collaboration”, Margi Chambers of CakeArt by Margi Chambers created this incredible Phaser, Tricorder, and Communicator Cake.
Margi states that the edible items are fashioned entirely from gum paste and fondant while staying as close to original specs as possible. It was one of many amazing Star Trek creations present at the Las Vegas event. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]
Few season finales are as memorable as Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s season 3 closer, “The Best of Both Worlds“. Not only did it reinvent the Borg, but it ended on a high-stakes cliffhanger with Captain Picard having been assimilated into the Borg Collective and Riker giving the order to fire on his now-former commanding officer and friend. It’s a sizzling bit of telly even now, and it elevated The Next Generation from being thought of by fans as “that other Star Trek show” to being considered… well, Star Trek.
A perfect moment, then for Paul Redmond of Purple Feather Cake Design to immortalize in cake form for his entry to the Cake: The Final Frontier celebration (the same celebration that gave us that awesome chocolate Scotty bust). Opting to recreate the head of Locutus – Captain Picard’s Borg alter ego – this thing is so detailed that when the page first loaded on my computer I thought I might be looking at a makeup test from the show itself, applied to a dummy or prop head. But nope! That’s the cake!
Paul had some trouble getting the cake to Las Vegas for this year’s official Star Trek convention. ” I shipped my piece over but alas transwarp conduits haven’t been discovered yet and he didn’t quite materialize in one piece.” A shame. Good thing it didn’t happen to the real Locutus. He’ll bite your head clean off, man. Check out more photos of the cake below. [click to continue…]

July 31st was a big day for Harry Potter fans, as the rehearsal script for the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, currently on in the West End, was finally released. It was also a big day for Potter author J.K. Rowling, and not just because of the book release – it was her 51st birthday.
To celebrate, she was presented with a birthday cake in the shape of King’s Cross Station in London – the location of both the fictional Platform 9¾ and its real-life counterpart – which she then tweeted about, because you would, wouldn’t you?
King’s Cross Station is much more significant for fans of J.K. Rowling than you might know. Her parents first met on a train at the station way back in 1964, while the idea for the Harry Potter series first came to her in 1990 as she was on a train. With connections like that, is it any wonder she chose to make it such a pivotal location within the Potterverse?
