It is no secret that I am obsessed with Doctor Who. In fact, I have been waiting for the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space) to show up in my backyard for some time now. The way I see it, the Hubster and I could just pull a “Rory and Amy” and fly off into space and time with the Doctor any day now…
Annnnny day now…
Mr. BNP and I are fairly new to the Who scene, considering it is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. We jumped on the Whovian train a few years back and I have since caught up by watching the reruns on Netflix. By far, my favorite Doctor is David Tennant. He was the Tenth Doctor and coincidentally, played Barty Crouch Jr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (my favorite HP movie.)
There are currently Eleven Doctors total, with the marvelous Matt Smith playing the current Doctor. Why so many Doctors? Well…it’s a bit of a long story, but to avoid any confusion to all my non-Whovian readers, I will try and make it short. There really is only one Doctor. He is the last time lord from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor is around 900 years old and every time he “dies”, he actually regenerates into someone “new”. New face. New look. New likes. New dislikes. New tastes, even. But inside it is the same old wonderful Doctor. Get it?
The Doctor travels in a big, blue police box called the TARDIS. It is bigger on the inside and is able to travel through space and time. He typically has a companion or two with him. That’s what I am not-so-patiently waiting for…
Once they step out of the TARDIS, the Doctor and his companions are always faced with a new dilemma that could change the course of history as we know it. He is often seen battling Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, or any other alien life force with his sonic screwdriver in order to save the world. In short…BEST. SHOW. EVER.
March 30th marks the mid-season premiere of Doctor Who 7.5!!!
There are not many Whovians in my little town (I know a total of 5), so I thought, why not have a virtual party to celebrate? There has got to be a TON of you out there in cyber world!
So to kick off our Who party, I made you guys a TARDIS cake!
I wonder if its bigger in the inside…
This cake started out as a 9 x13 vanilla cake. I used a cardboard TARDIS pattern to cut out the shape, crumb coated it, and then covered the cake with the first layer of blue fondant. For the second layer, I cut out the squares using a square fondant cutter and carefully laid it on top. Finally, I cut out the white squares, added the yellow light on top, and glued it all together.
I dyed the fondant myself and had blue hands for a week!
I found edible stars to make it feel more spacey wacey!
How about some Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Push Pops?
I used my mini muffin pan to make these cute little cakes and then squished them together with yummy blue buttercream!
Bow ties are cool! Especially when they hold the key to the TARDIS! I am so in love with them! I found the keys at my local craft store and I cut mini bow ties out of blue sparkly foam paper.
Did you notice the gold and silver stars? And the blue asteroids? Ahhh. I die. I mean…I regenerate.
I used my basic vanilla cake recipe and added a bit of cinnamon spice, but you could choose whatever flavor you want.
