    Years ago there was a slashdot article that mentioned the Cory’s name in the title and many of the commenters and I scan read it as Doctor who.

    I’d be remiss if I didn’t reference my friend-of-friend Marie’s Tardis cake made for W00tstock Minneapolis in 2010.  She’s a pro but folks here likely would appreciate

    This version is something I could try though.  We need more Tardis cakes.

    Hah! Pretty cool. And eerie: my 8 year old daughter wanted a Tardis cake for her upcoming birthday, and my awesome brother-in-law just posted pictures of the one he made for her, which is also 3-D (though not very similar to this one) and also his first attempt at using fondant.

    I would share but it’s posted on Facebook, and he’s smart enough to set his privacy properly.

    I wimped out and kept my daughter’s 16th BDay cake flat.  Good job going vertical.  I found all these professionally made Tardis cakes soaring skyward, got intimidated, and kept it low profile.  Nice to see you accepted the challenge.  Regardless, my Whovian loved it and the effort.

    “Novice baker”?

     or . . . “Tom Baker”?

    My five year old granddaughter had wanted a Tardis cake for her birthday. We couldn’t quite figure out how to make it, because she insisted it be bigger on the inside than the outside.

  10. Thanks for the geek appreciation, this cake was an effort of love as I made it for my twin boys first birthday.
    The following month I also made a giant Dalek cake for my daughter’s 15th (per her request) which I’ve yet to post pictures of.
    Still, the entire process was fun, and I definitely think I could do a better job next time around if I were to do it again.

    It’s very cute! 

    If you used a denser cake, like pound cake, for the TARDIS, and fluffier, airier cake for the rest, there could be an effect like a piece of the TARDIS being more filling than it originally appeared, which would be amusingly meta.
