Who Cooked It Better? Dorkiest Cake-Off Ever
For this week’s Who Cooked It Better we’re looking at two of the most impressive cakes I’ve seen on the Interwebs in a long time.
On the left, representing Star Wars, is the R2D2 cake from Mark Joseph Cakes Baker/Best Dad Ever Mark Randazzo. The bulk of R2 is made up of a mere 12 red velvet cakes, layered on top of each other and spaced out with white chocolate ganache and chocolate hazelnut buttercream frosting. The legs, meanwhile, are solid blocks of rice krispie treats and the whole thing is covered in more edible frosting. There’s a full photographic rundown of the process over at B-Side Blog.
On the right is an impressively detailed Star Trek cake, constructed by Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes, who you probably know from the Food Network show Ace of Cakes. While there’s no recipe given, you can check out more pics, as well as a detailed debate about how Duff could possibly be so clueless as to seat Scotty in the navigator’s chair, over at TrekMovie.com
But which cake will rule them all?

Finally! Cakes worthy of being cut by these replica Lord of the Rings cake knives!
I guess it’s a differnt kind of dorky, but I like the Super Mario cake and am disappointed it wasn’t included. Plus he totally loses points on putting Scotty in the wrong place (I’m taking your word for it as I am many geeks but not a Trekkie)
R2D2 was blue…
The guy who played R2D2 lived in the town next to me, he was from Preston in Lancashire, I recall him lighting our town Christmas lights one year!
Apparently R2-D1, R2-D2’s “cousin,” was red. So this is not actually R2-D2, but a case of mistaken identity.
omg. This may be the toughest contest yet. I give the edge to Star Trek, just because the display panels on the walls are so cool.
this popped up on my RSS. thought you’d find it amusing 😛
THIS IS A DISASTER I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY MADE R2-D2 RED I CAN’T BELIEVE THESE PEOPLE ARE SO CLUELESS ABOUT THE BASICS OF STAR WARS THIS IS A DISASTER
Sorry, I just couldn’t resist…
But both are awesome.
