For the Trekkies - Doin' it Old School
Whether you are a full-fledged "Trekkie" and speak Klingon or just a fan of the Star Trek series, you'll instantly recognize the above cake as the Communicator. Brad, for whom this cake was made, is a huge Star Trek fan and was lucky enough to have someone in his life who indulged his passions a little and bought him a cake he would never forget. Rick had the idea for the Communicator cake -- something geeky enough for a hardcore Star Trek fan that would also suit the size of an office party, which he would be taking his cake to. We decided to go old school for the Communicator cake rather than the newer, flashier versions which just didn't have the same nostalgia factor. When Brad showed up to pick up his Communicator along with the woman who purchased it for him, he said "Beam me up Scotty!" and had a huge grin on his face, which we're guessing got even bigger when he took a bite of his Banana Nutella flavored cake.
We're also bringing out of the vault, a cake we made a couple years back for a groom who adored Star Trek. Originally his fiance was going to have us make his MINI Cooper with the Star Trek logo on it, but then she gave it more thought and decided to keep it real old school and had us make instead his 1977 Honda Civic, which we thought worked even better! Apparently he was quite attached to this car, and also had a MINI, but this was his baby and the only thing that would make it even more perfect was the addition of the Star Trek logo, which Rick placed on the top and side of the car. The writing on the cake was quite amusing -- "Mr G. you may indulge yourself!"
