This great Quark and Odo Cake was made by Jam Cakes. It features cartoon version of Quark and Odo looking at each other. I love the look on Odo’s face because he looks smug like he caught Quark up to no good. The cake has a Deep Space Nine com badge on top. The cake is Black and Orange and has tiny stars on it, to look like space and a planet’s atmosphere. Kimmie did a wonderful job creating this cake!
Quark and Odo are two characters from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Quark is a Ferengi who owns the space stations bar. Money is Quark’s first love. – almost every Ferengi is obsessed with earning profits. So, Quark often engages in criminal activities to earn a profit. Odo is the space stations’ constable. He is a shape shifter and views everything in black and white. Because of this, Odo and Quark constantly butt heads. The two actors – the late Rene Auberjonois and Armin Shimerman – had AMAZING chemistry together. These are often the funniest scenes in all of Deep Space Nine.
This Stellar Star Trek Wedding Cake was made byLittle Cherry Cake Company. The couple loved all things Star Trek, Pumpkin, and Halloween so Tracey creatively combined these themes into this awesome wedding cake using carrot cake as a base. Notice one of the couple’s pet cats on the side of the cake.
The cake has two tiers. Both tiers are orange pumpkins. The bride and groom are sitting on the top pumpkin. There is a black bat flying just below them. The bottom pumpkin has a face carved out.
The cake board is purple. There are green pumpkin vines and a black cat on the cake board.
Here is a close-up of the Star Trek themed bride and groom. She is wearing a blue Star Trek uniform dress. She is holding orange roses in her hand. The roses are the same color orange as the pumpkins. The groom is wearing a red Star Fleet Captain’s uniform. There is a large yellow moon behind them. Black bats are flying in front of the moon.
Their black and white cat is sitting on a green pumpkin leaf on the cake.
Here’s a black witch’s hat and brown broom beside the cake.
The bottom cake layer is a Jack-o-Lantern with a scary face.
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.
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.
My picture of Riker is based on an Art Marker Pen Sketch Drawing Poster of him on the internet.
Here’s a picture of my finished Riker Pie.
Here’s a picture of my finished Picard Pie.
My picture of Picard is based on a silhouette painting done by carbon copy arts.
