Anyone who's been reading my blog even a short time
enjoyed endured ( ! )
references and even full posts devoted to Doctor Who.....
Cakes, parties, costumes, you name it!
My son turned 11 last month with the help of the last of the Time Lords
and several awesome friends.
I'll be blogging the party details from invitations to treats
(fish fingers and custard anyone??)
to favors very soon.....
it's been a full, memorable and wonderful advent and Christmas,
which has been my blogging focus.
And I'm really happy to begin this week, as we get back into a routine,
by sharing a few Whovian delights...
We created 12 goodies for the buffet table....
11 for our little guy's age
plus one for good luck.
One of these is the TARDIS cake, which I detail here.
Easy, fun, tasty and so decorative!
Looks just like the Doctor's ship!
Our Dalek cake, which looks a tad lopsided,
he birthday boy was thrilled!
The party guests all knew exactly what the cake was
( a sure sign of a master pastry chef's concoction, right?)
and it was exactly what our little Time Lord requested!
So here goes~
For the uninitiated, here is a dalek,
mortal enemy of The Doctor:
Aside from my TARDIS cake, this is
easiest how-to Doctor Who cake:
What you'll need to create your dalek~
* favorite cake mix
*favorite white icing ( this cream cheese frosting is my go-to frosting recipe)
*Gumdrops or Dots
*Pirouette (or pirolines cookies---as seen here on amazon) My local Dollar Tree carries small canisters of these cookies; hopefully yours does too!
*Edible silver and gold glitter. I found mine at Michael's, but it is available on amazon as well.
Arranging your cake/Decorating:
1. You'll need to organize several round cake pans (or oven-safe) baking bowls, such as pyrex or corning ware. I used one cupcake tin for the very top layer.
2. Mix, fill, bake and stack.....You'll want to wind up with something along these lines, but perhaps not quite so lopsided!
Yup, you're right....icing this whole mess was a tricky proposition.
But when your Galifreyan is counting on you, you make it work.
The trick is, lots of glue
(aka icing) between layers!
Just a quick shot including all the goods you need to create your dalek.
Because we were sort of rushed and short on time,
given all the party prep, decorating and cleaning to be done,
I didn't get many shots of the cake actually being assembled
or in stages of decor.
But if you know daleks, then you know the look you're going for...
You can use my ideas as a guide and create your own too!
The Doctor battling his arch enemy!
