Battlestar Galactica premiere party on Friday…

it’s almost here!  that’s right nerds, Battlestar Galactica (BSG) premieres on Friday!  both seanalyn and i are preparing ourselves for this epic event!  i am hosting a BSG party at my apartment and inviting lots of hungry guests.  seanalyn and i will be brainstorming ideas and recipes for our themed party.

i searched around, found some great ideas online, and added seanalyn & mine:

a frakin’ Battlestar Galactica cake

    Marisa from posted this amazing edible artwork by local baker/artist Zoë Lukas, who is in the process of opening up her own bakery in Philly.  The chocolate devil’s food cake is ‘filled with raspberry jam and ganache, iced with chocolate buttercream and ganache, decorated with chocolate ships and explosions, silver dragees and silver and gold space dust.’

    the Cylon Jack-O-Lantern

    Allison from posted this incredible masterpiece with a working cylon laser eye.  although not edible, this would make for a great centerpiece at our party!  too bad i’m not that handy at carving pumpkins!

    seanalyn’s idea

    i love it!  she plans on taking the infamous Eye of Jupiter that Starbuck consistently obesses over and making a glorious fruit tart out of it.  (she is so clever!)

    ***pictures of her appetizer will follow after our party

    my idea

    i am thinking of taking those Pillsbury Crossiants, stuffing them with crab & cream cheese, and creating foldovers in the shape of cylon raiders.  i’ll give the illusion of their notable ‘laser eye’ with a slice of red pepper.

    um, we’ll see how this one turns out!

    lastly, the Battlestar Drinking game…

    on this nerdtastic spacecast community forum, i found an awesome thread with some very creative BSG themed drinks, here’s a few i loved:


    · 2 parts Gin

    · 1 part Pomegranate Juice

    · 1 part Cranberry Juice

    · a dash of Grenadine

    Stir and Serve with a touch of ice in a slender Collins glass.


    · 1 part white Tequila

    · 1 part Ouzo

    · 1 part tomato juice

    · a dash of Worcestershire sauce

    Shake and serve in an old fashioned glass.


    · 1 part Bailey’s Irish cream

    · 1 part Tequila Rose

    · a dash of Amaretto

    Shake and serve in a Shot Glass

    what i loved even more is that there is actually a Battlestar Galactica drinking game with rules and everything!

    please let us know if you have any creative ideas, thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc.  we absolutely love hearing from you!

    The idea of the stuffed croissant rolls is pure genius. I will be trying this for Friday. If I come across any interesting ideas, I’ll share them. If not, have a blast watching the show!

    So far we have come up with

    Asparagus wrapped in phylo – arrow of apollo

    scooped out, twice baked potato skins with fillings – the hybrids tub

    red velvet cupcakes with icing with a hole in the middle – centurions

    and this scarey looking thing:

    Thank goodness someone posted (which sent me a notification) or else I’d never have found this blog again.

    Wanted to let you know I used your crescent roll idea. I also made Cylon brownies, a BSG Meat Pie and nacho dog tags.
