Tardis cake - easy way? - Page 2

post #16 of 21

I too have been asked to make a Tardis cake for an 18th Birthday celebration. The customer says it is for only 10 people. I was thinking of doing a 6" square or an 8" square. I have never made a cake of this magnitude or detail before, and have no idea how to price something like this. Any advice??? I was thinking of using fondant, since I have never used sculpting chocolate for anything but flowers. HELP!!!

Hello!  :-DI just found this forum when i was looking up some stuff on Tardis cakes.  I wanted to share the one i'm currently working on. It has to be about 8 years since i've decorated a cake. 

These are the toppers i made for the cake i'm putting together this weekend.  It was my first time using fondant and modeling chocolate.  The fondant is MM and i made both using recipes i found online.  I prefer the chocolate.  I still have to do the "police box" sign but otherwise it's pretty much done.  The cake is a double layered 10 in and it's already been crumb coated in a sort of lavender grey.  I am going to make some wired stars to float about the top. I'm really happy with the way the Matt SMith figure turned out.  It  was a happy surprise that it actually looks like him a little :) Oh, excuse the blinds lol.  The cat is a maniac!

2 weeks ago was the 50th anniversary of Dr Who.  Getting side tracked here but 30 years or so ago (showing my age here) I signed a petition to keep Dr Who on air when they wanted to axe him.  He has come a long way and matured a lot since then but hasn't all t.v.

Back on track.  Paul Bradford did a Tardis Cake on his tutorial site to celebrate. You might not want to join the site but you can still have a look at the cake to give yourself ideas.

Try not to overthink the tardis! Think in shapes. It is a box, covered in fondant with squares on it of different sizes to pick out the bevelling and the windows! Use small square cake tin, piece your fondant to get it flush. Print out a tardis net off deviant art http://cyberdrone.deviantart.com/art/Cubee-Classic-TARDIS-1980s-173833443, size it appropriately, use these as a template to cut your windows and bevelling out of fondant. Stick on. Pick out detail with paint. Voila. Ganache your cake to get the square edges crisp if you are a stickler for detail like me.
