We're getting set to throw our little guy a Whovian themed party for his 11th in just a few weeks. So, coming soon? All you need to throw a Galifreyan bash from invitations to regeneration treats ( fish fingers and custard anyone?) , to alien crafts, wielding Madame Kovarian's eye drive, roasting marshmallow adipose and finishing the night by gifting the guests with a starry Christmas tree ornament favor! I'll get that post together shortly. We'remaking our own TARDIS, but not at all as elaborately as the one which my friend, Denise made with her Whovian hubby and kids! You must go visit her!
For the upcoming party, we'll be attempting a Dalek cake. My little man is pretty creative and he's good in the kitchen. His skill, plus some ideas from pinterest, should enable us to pull it off!
You might have heard some buzz that Whovians among us are gearing up to celebrate the Doctor's 50th anniversary. What better way for us to jump in and join the party than with a TARDIS cake? For the uninitiated, the TARDIS is the Doctor's "spaceship," whose acronym represents "Time And Relative Dimension In Space." If you're not Whovian, that little tidbit of info plus this photo of his Police Public Call Box time machine will surely peak your curiosity! I hope. Because everyone needs The Doctor in his/her life.
And here's a cake we made for my older son's party recently:
It's very basic, but cute, right?
Here's all you need to make the cake and jump into the DW festivities:
1. Cake~ Your fave cake recipe or a boxed mix, any flavor.
( I cheat and use a box most of the time! ) Use a 9 x 12 baking pan.
2. Frosting ~ Your fave icing dyed TARDIS blue. Here's my "famous" cream cheese frosting, if you'd like. Just keep adding blue food color until you get the unmistakable hue of TARDIS blue!
3. Adorn ~ with the following:
*White icing writer for words
*Sticks of gun for windows
*Black icing writer for door handles
*Yellow and orange jelly beans or other candies for light on TARDIS roof
Now go enjoy a few episodes and you'll see what all the hype is about!
