Food Network airs a reality show called The Ace of Cakes which focuses on a Baltimore bakery run by baker Duff Goldman, who turns out to be a Trek fan. The show often features custom specialty cakes, and a producer for the show sent TrekMovie some exclusive preview pics of a special Star Trek: The Original Series cake that will be featured in an upcoming episode.
Here are a few shots of the Trek cake (click to enlarge):
More cake geekery
The Trek cake is not the first franchise that Duff Goldman’s bakery has taken on. In the past they have done Harry Potter, Star Wars and others. Duff was profiled by StarWars.com for his Star Wars cakes, and was also profiled by our friends at Geek Magazine.
Here’s a clip from the Harry Potter cake episode:
The fourth season of Ace of Cakes is airing now on Food Network Thursdays at 10PM. The Trek cake episode should air sometime in the fall with the fifth season. More info at the official site.
UPDATE: NOTE TO VISITORS FROM io9, LA Times, etc….
Some websites have noted comments below as some kind of proof that Trekkies take things too seriously. The irony is that the one they point out, from Sean calling the cake a ‘disaster’ was a joke, as he notes on his blog. Nitpicking is a sport amongst Trekkies and Sean was just parodying that. No one here is taking the cake too seriously, but apparently some other sites are taking the comments too seriously.
