Ace Of Cakes Show Makes Star Trek Cake, Trekkie Rage (And Some Hilarity) Ensues


From Geekologie: So those crazy fonadanters on the Food Network's Ace of Cakes recently made a Star Trek cake and posted pictures of it on Trekmovie.com. But some Trekkies weren't happy with the result.

lol #6 has a point. Scotty and Uhura are not in the right spots and Chekov is nowhere to be found. Even before Chekov came onto the show Scotty didn't sit there.

Actually Sean, Scotty DID sit at the Navigator's Station on the bridge at the end of the second pilot "Where No Man Has Gone Before" because Navigator Gary Mitchel was dead. There is a picture of it at http://www.trekcore.com. I tried to post the link to the picture but it did not work.

Finally, the voice of reason stepped in.

"Have you ever kissed a girl??!?!?!?!?!"

It's an F-in cake. Turn-off your caps lock and and stop making trekkers look like such OCD losers.

Good burn with your lightsaber there, Gary Seven of Nine. Oh shit, lightsabers are from Star Wars and not Star Trek aren't they? God how embarrassing. Seriously though, I've always loved Star Trek -- especially the spaceship, Discovery One.

A couple more pictures of the cake after the jump. And for the love of God please don't email me about the Discovery One being the ship from 2001: A Space Odyssey, I know that.

Ah, nerds. While I don't get tired of mocking their antics I do get tired of the "ever kissed a girl" taunt.

Unless it's got a specific tie-in to whatever you're saying, can we all agree to let that one fade into history?

I'd point out that good composition for the cake would require Spock on one side of the bridge, Uhura on the other, even though they both parked on the right. As for the Scotty thing, who doesn't want to see Scotty? I dig the nerd who points out the ep where Scotty sat in that chair. Nice work, nerd.

Hi there! I'm the nerd who posted the first "THIS IS A DISASTER" comment, and it was a joke! Glad to see that it's reaping unintended consequences among all these new bloggers who apparently thought I was serious. The Internet is funny!

You're funny, sean!

Ha! That's great. I guess the sarcasm was sliced a little too fine.
