For anyone not familiar with Daleks: http://www.jeffbots.com/daleks.html. I got the idea from http://www.livejournal.com/users/doyle_sb4/349875.html. Ahh, the good old days...  Roll Eyes

Anyway, me and my sister made dalek-themed cakes for her brithday!

Obviously, fitting 18 candles onto it was a challenge, but...we managed it!

Comments appriciated! Cheesy

Did you see the episode of the new Dr.Who series w/the Dalek? It was on CBC (love those Canadian stations!!!) about 2 weeks ago.
Dr. Who is the best, & so is your cake!!!

All the goo we use, reviewed!

Thanks for your comments, guys Cheesy

We made it out of two basic circular chocolate cakes, one smaller than the other. I think the website suggested taht you could use a swiss roll, placed upright, instead. We put our home-made cakes on top of each other, and then... went mad with icing (only the green stuff is icing -- the sugar-mixed with water variety-- so it was pretty simple to do)! Add unravelled  liquerish wheels/allsorts, chococlate cigars, Minstrals, a lollypop and a load of other sweets, in a suitably dalek-y pattern, and... there you have it! Cake a la dalek  Grin

haha! I'm the one who posted about the Discworld cake tutorial and I've been wondering how these turned out since you posted about them in reply. My mom had just watched the Dr. Who - Invasion of the Daleks dvd from Netflix when you mentioned it. This looks great! How many did you make?

« Reply #9 on: June 03, 2005 01:22:23 AM »

We only made the one -- it was pretty big, more than enough for my family and friends, and it took ages to make/decorate. If it had been smaller, maybe we could have made enough to create a whole dalek army!
