How sweet! George Takei turned 75 on Friday and, smart cookies that they are, a Toronto bakery was ready for the "Star Trek" alum's visit to the Great White North.
This weekend, Toronto's Kensington Market pie shop Wanda's Pie in the Sky presented Takei, who's best known for playing Hikaru Sulu on "Star Trek," with 13 cookies made just for him.
Though some were in the shape of "Star Trek" paraphernalia, others sported Takei's catchphrase, "Oh my."
Takei picked up the sweet treats up in person. He was in town on Saturday to attend Toronto's annual Sakura Ball, where the Japanese Canadian Cultural Center presented him with the Sakura Award.
The award recognizes individuals who have "made exceptional contributions to the promotion and exchange of Japanese culture." Last year's winner was David Suzuki.
Takei is chairman emeritus of the board of trustees of the Japanese American National Museum and is a member of the board of directors of the U.S.-Japan Bridging Foundation. Later this year, he'll take on Broadway in the play "Allegiance," which he helped fund. The play revolves around a family's experience during the Japanese-American internment.
After those cookies, the svelte actor may want to get in a workout or two if he wants to stay curtain-ready.
"A wonderful time was had, and the cookies were absurdly delicious," Takei wrote on Facebook after his Toronto visit.
