I made the fish pond cake and thought I'de try something a bit differnet.I have no idea about other countries, but in the UK the TV show Dr.Who is huge, my little sister loves it so I decided to make it the theme of her birthday cake this year.
Here is the link to the Dr.Who site if you don't know what it is about:
It is the tardis on a random red planet

It looks really wobbily in these pictures, I used a different cake recepie to usual and it was a bit too moist, so what started out nice and rectangular went sort of squishy.
This is how I built up the cake for the tardis:

This is how I built up the cake for the base (randomly):

I had planned to make some little aliens on the planet but I had to get to school so there wasn't time.
Here it is all loaded with candles:

I have learned form making this that randomly shaped things are much easier than square things, and even though moist cake tastes better it does tend to collapse.
I would love to hear what everyone thinks... Cheesy

I just love your cake ... just a tip so your cake wont collapes use 3 or more long sticks or skews in your tower and it wont collapes this helps the pill of cakes stay together so they wont move.  Just make sure they are as long or tall as the cake cut them a bit smaller so the stick wont be sticking out.  Hope this help for a next time and I say next time because I really love the idea and your cake.

I've been a fan of Doctor Who since I was in diapers! I love the cake. I saw the pond one you did, too. You have some talent!
