Local cake decorator impresses Wesley Crusher

Monday night, nerds descended on the Guthrie Theater in droves for W00tstock, a geek-friendly variety show featuring Adam Savage of Mythbusters, Wil Wheaton (also known as Wesley Crusher from Star Trek the Next Generation) and a slew of other notable nerds.

Local cake decorator, Marie Porter of Celebration Generation, made sure they all had a warm welcome in the form of a Doctor Who Tardis cake (ie-the blue telephone booth thingy Dr. Who travels around in). You may remember the accomplished cake designer from this previous post or from her decorating talents featured in l'etoile's Kiss Me, Cake photo editorial. Long story short, Marie totally rocks!

Just this morning she posted a number of backstage pix from W00tstock on her Facebook fan page that we're totally jealous of! Wesley Crusher AND Neil Gaiman? Scream!

The Tardis cake....posed with a beanie baby?

Wil Wheaton loves Marie's cake!

Neil Gaiman helps himself to some Tardis cake!

  1. The Beanie baby is well known in local geek circles. He is passed around to traveling geeks, and has been all over the world - as well as photographed with many Celebs.

    Did you guys see the YouTube video we posted?

  2. I'm pretty sure I can safely claim that he is the world's most traveled Moose. He's been to six continents, including sitting on the actual South Pole. He also gets photographed not only with friends, but with any celebrities I happen to meet. Since Marie had access to the cake I handed her the Moose and gave her a mission to get his picture with it!

    To see the places Moose has been and people he's met, just check out his facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/moose.snyder#!/moose.snyder?v=photos
