The Tardis

A friend of mine from high school emailed me requesting a cake in the form of a tardis. I have to admit that I had NO IDEA what she was talking about and had to do a Google search on the word Tardis. Luckily, there were about a billion hits and I was able to wrap my head around how to make a navy blue telephone boxy thingy.

She requested a chocolate cake with buttercream filling and I covered the cake in fondant and gum paste. For those of you who have kids wondering if they'll EVER use math in "real" life, you can show them this cake. It's amazing how many times math came into the equation as I wanted equal spacing between the windows and the indents of the doors. My very supportive husband came to the rescue yet again. (And he TOTALLY knew what a Tardis was.)

This is what my packaging looks like. My brother developed the logo and it was his idea to use the ribbon - which I love.

And here's the birthday boy! I think it was a hit!


  1. I introduced my boys to Dr. Who this spring. They LOVE him! This gives me a great idea for my youngest's birthday this year. Thanks for sharing! I found this on Pinterest. :)

  2. What are the dimensions of the cake? (I''m baking it for my dad's birthday)
