I love the holidays, and to me and my family Star trek and X-Day goes hand in hand thanks to the inspiration of the many awesome Hallmark Holiday ornaments!
I made this for the TREK-mas (and Star Wars) X-Mas room in my house (you can see it in the background of the first pic) as the centerpiece to what will hopefully be a new family tradition to our 'Holiday Nerd-ism.'
Inside is a wood block with four holes drilled in for wooden pegs (which was the hardest to design and get right) I then sculpted the Enterprise body in homemade rice krispies as a base, then designed, baked and built the cookie pieces around it, and finally covered the whole thing in frosting to give it that classic Enterprise look!
The cookie recipe I used is technically not gingerbread but a recipe specifically made for building complex gingerbread designs, (I didn't want to take a chance using a traditional soft gingerbread recipe with the top disk!) the pieces ended up being incredibly sturdy! I still gotta make the Emblem sugar cookies, but I'm taking the rest of the night off!
