Trek Cake



"The Ace Of Cakes" Creates Star Trek: The Cake

The Food Network's reality show "The Ace Of Cakes" is featuring a Star Trek-themed cake for one of next years episodes. Turns out Duff Goldman is a Trek Fan.

I've heard that there is a big flap over some Trek fans complaining that Scotty was shown in the Navigator position and Uhura is at Engineering...

People, it's a cake! And a really pretty cake at that. Almost too pretty to eat.

I'm no baker, but what the heck is fondant?

Not a baker either. But Fondant is like sugar playdough. And it usually tastes like it too.

I personally feel that to drape the yummy goodness of cake in fondant is a crime against nature.

However...Duff and his crew do some amazing things with it.

Thanks for the information. I suspected as much just from reading the comments from the link, but I wasn't sure. I guess Duff's awesome looking cakes are more for show.

I like it! I'll have to show the picture to my stepdaughter who is working on making and decorating cakes professionally.

jill: Your stepdaughter will enjoy the show too. The cakes they create are unbelievable, fondant or not.

you trekkies!

i make some walnut/coconut fondant candies dipped in chocolate around christmastime - probably a little softer than used for cakes.

I like how Kirk has that 'bored look' going.

And who's to say Scotty and Uhuru aren't just checking up on another station? Sheesh.

Shatner needs to come out and say, "It's just a CAKE, people!"

It is really cool!

The europeans use fondant alot for their more elegant cakes.
It gives a very smooth and finished look...I prefer cream cheese myself, or butter cream.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw
BTW-It IS a cool looking cake!

I ADORE ace of cakes. They make the coolest crap.

Fondant is the stuff that makes a cake surface smooth. Icing can't do that. It doesn't taste great - well, I think it has an almond background which I'm not fond of. But it sure is pretty.

I watch Food Network all the time, and I've seen some eps of Ace Of Cakes, but I never knew that playdough looking stuff was called fondant. I live & learn.

fondant is the playdough looking stuff and can be flavored like frostings can. i too agree that it doesnt taste good (buttercream rocks!) even though it can be flavored. i like the show ace of cakes but i dont agree about all of the cakes. i should have known duff is a trekkie!
