Gingerbready for action, Captain!

Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise could only dream of a command this sweet, this spicy, this crunchy and delicious.

Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa, CA not only dreamed of a gingerbread Enterprise, they made it a reality for a shop display, complete with icing lights and a candy-cane tractor beam.

Ever since the U.S.S. Enterprise crash-landed in an especially gripping Star Trek: Generations episode, fans have realized it’s not easy keeping such a vast vessel space-borne. Reddit user ejustice has used the creative power of gingerbread to picture a similar calamity in baked-good 3D. I like to think this is just the Enterprise heading into the clouds to evade cookie-craving Klingons!

Fruit and veggies play an important part in everyone’s diet. But they’re usually simply sliced up and stuck on a plate. How boring! This is where food artists get creative. How much funner is it to eat a banana that looks like an octopus? So much funner!

A kiwi koala—too cute to crunch?

Here’s how a cucumber orca breaks the surface of a dinner plate.

A melon owl keeps watch with grapes  eyes peeled for anyone looking for fruit for dessert.

And “snow peas, please” is all you need to say about this fresh garden dragonfly!
