Star Trek Pies

I made these pies for my husband’s father who is a big Star Trek fan.  I usually decorate wedding cakes, celebration cakes, and cookies,  so this is my first time decorating a pie.  He really likes Star Trek: The Next Generation and he wanted pies so I made a Captain Jean Luc Picard Pie and a Commander William Riker Pie.

I have featured a Jessica Rabbit Pie and a Grover Pie by Jessica Leigh Clark-Bojin of Pie are Awesome (aka The Pious).  She makes some terrific pies so I watched some of her videos on how to make decorated pies.

Videos on how to make decorated pies

Here’s a terrific video she did on how to make Disney Princess Pies.

And another on Mother’s Day pie ideas. I love the portrait of her mother that she did at the end.

Both videos gave me good ideas on how to do a decorated pie.

How I Made these Star Trek pies

I made a test pie to test out some ideas since this is the first time I have done decorated pies. First, I cut out border and then the stars in the border.  The crust was not frozen enough so the stars distorted some and the crust cracked around the stars. Second, I made a peach pie. Third, I placed the decorated border on top of the pie, then covered it in foil and baked it.  Fourth, when the pie came out of the oven, some of the crust stuck to the foil so a small piece of the decorative circle broke off the pie when the foil was removed.

Final Picard and Riker pie Steps

First, for the final pies, I decided to cut the stars from another piece of dough and add them to the crust using egg white.  Second, for the circle around the edge of the pie, I cut out the outer circle with the pie plate turned upside down. The inner circle was cut using a bowl edge.

Third, I painted the character images onto the extra inside circle, then cut around the drawing.

Fourth, I used the iPhone Camera Lucida app to help draw the pictures.

Fifth, I baked the characters and the circle separately from the pie for 12 minutes at 400 degrees.

Here’s a picture of the decorated pie tops before they were added to the pie. I baked all decorated pieces separately from the pie.

 

I used an apple pie recipe from Rose Beranbuam’s  The Pie and Pastry Bible.   Everyone said the apple pies I made were really delicious.  My test pie used her peach pie recipe and it was really good too.

Riker Pie

My picture of Riker is based on an Art Marker Pen Sketch Drawing Poster of him on the internet.

Star Trek Cookies

These awesome Star Wars meets Star Trek cookies were made by Klickitat Street.  I love Star Trek and Star Wars, so I think these are some of the coolest cookies I’ve ever seen.

 

Star Trek Cookies

Spock would make a great Jedi.  I can’t see Chekov as a Jedi.  He never seemed disciplined enough.  He’d go around telling everyone that the Russian’s discovered the Force and invented Midi-chlorians.

 

Star Trek Cookies

The idea of having Kirk as Han Solo is brilliant!  I love the tribble Chewbacca.

 

Star Trek Cookies

Scotty is C-3PO and McCoy is R2-D2.

 

Uhura Cookie

This Princess Uhura cookie is lovely.

 

Sulu Cookie

Sulu would make a great X-wing pilot.

Awesome Star Trek Cookies

These Awesome Star Trek Cookie Portraits feature crew members from 2 different Star Trek series: Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

These wonderful cookies were made by Carried Away Cookies

Firstly,  every cookie is shaped like a ComBadge.  I like the gold background behind each character.

Secondly, these cookies feature key characters from both shows.  I have really enjoyed watching both shows and I like seeing my favorite characters in cookie form.

Thirdly, the Captain Kirk, Spock, and Dr. McCoy cookies are terrific. When I think of Star Trek:The Original Series, I cannot help but think of them.

Fourthly, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Geordi La Forge, Data, Worf, and Counselor Troi cookies are terrific representations of these characters.

Borg Cube Cake

Yesterday, I featured an awesome BB-8 Cake made by Kreativ Torten. Today, I’m featuring their wonderful Borg Cake.  The cake even has working lights.

Here is Kreativ Torten’s description of this cool cake:

“We are the Borg … a good friend and a big Star Trek fan, got a Borg spaceship for his 40th birthday. The cube was 20cm x 20cm x 20cm in size and half filled with cream cheese / raspberry cream and half with tiramisu / nut cream.”

The detail on the Borg Cube is wonderful.
