Last May, my son had a birthday. And what he wanted most was a Doctor Who cake. He takes after his mommy and adores Doctor Who. We already showed you how we made his day special with a Doctor Who candy bar shake. But now, I’m finally getting around to sharing how I put together his birthday cake!
This is so insanely simple. I’m telling you, I am not one that can decorate a cake very well. I’m rubbish at it quite frankly! But give me a few toys and candy I can make something rather fun.
Doctor Who Cake
To begin you need to cook up two 8″ round cakes. I used my Grandma’s Devil’s Food Cake recipe. It’s always the favorite when it comes to cakes in this house. It gets requested every year.
Then you will also need frosting. I used our whipped frosting recipe. Then dye the frosting blue with Wilton food coloring gel. It will take quite a bit of coloring to get a deeper blue.
After the cake has cooled completely, add a layer of frosting on top of one of the round cakes. Then place the second round cake on top. Or you can make a delicious strawberry filling (recipe coming soon). Or better yet, make it a blueberry filling so it is blue! But my boy wanted strawberry cause he likes strawberries and chocolate mixed.
Then frost the rest of the cake. Make the frosting smooth. Ensure all the cake is covered.
Then I placed our favorite small Doctor Who toys on the top. I used the Doctor Who TARDIS Mini Construction Playset and the Doctor Who Monsters Multi-Pack. I also ordered the Doctor Who Spin And Fly 3.75 Tardis to use on the top. But it looked a little too big on the final cake. So my boy got that as an extra birthday present. He was really excited.
I used a small paper doily cover before I placed the Tardis on the top to keep the frosting from getting into the little crevices. And then I arranged the characters around it in a fun pattern.
After that I took out my supply of Sweetworks Candy Sixlets in blue, white and silver colors. I arranged the Sixlets around the base of the cake in an easy pattern of blue, silver, blue, white, etc.
Then I randomly scattered more Sixlets across the top of the cake for effect and mostly because who can say no to Sixlets candy?
To finish it off, just add the candles! I found some fun Blue and white ones at Walmart that matched perfectly.
Light them and present the cake to your Whovian.
After the candles are blown out, remove the toys (which you can easily wash off with a little water to get the frosting off). And then slice and serve the cake on white and blue paper plates!
And make it even more fun with adding our Doctor Who candy Bar Shake to go along with the Doctor Who Cake! It will be the perfect treat combo for your next Doctor Who Viewing Party!
It will be a hit with all your Whovian fans!
