Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Dalek Cupcakes

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Dalek Extermi-cakes surrounding TARDIS.

These extermi-cakes were made by my mum and sister for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary and I thought someone might want to use the idea for a themed birthday party. They’re quite straight forward to make, so I hope you enjoy having a go!



Dalek cakes made using:

  • Chocolate buns (made with death-by-chocolate recipe)
  • Chocolate icing
  • Mini Smarties
  • Yorkie giant chocolate buttons
  • Buttercream icing
  • Straws (for the eye stalk)

Go on! Play with your Food!

Pineapple Owl!

The village horticultural show happened last week, which meant that the house was full of delicious home-made cakes that I wasn’t allowed to eat and my mini-siblings were entering all sorts of craft competitions! My favourite competition was probably “Create a Vegetable Animal”, partly because I got to eat half a watermelon (see the turtle) and because the results were just brilliant. It made me wonder who made the silly “Don’t Play with Your Food” rule because… who wouldn’t want a whole kitchen full of things like this:

Myrtle the Watermelon-Turtle

So, kids and adults… have fun and be creative with your food!

P.S. Sadly all of these creatures have now been eaten. Pineapple owl was chopped up and used in a fruit salad.
