Sunday Sweets: Doctor Who

Sunday, August 16, 2009

I'm proud to say that I was raised by geeks. Star Trek and Doctor Who were staples in my household, and when I was little my folks even bundled me and my brother off to a Doctor Who event where I got to meet the late Jon Pertwee. At the time, of course, I was more impressed with the full-scale model of the TARDIS control room where I got to push ALL the buttons. Anyhoo, naturally it was only a matter of time until I found enough Whovian Sweets to justify a post. Ready? Here we go...

Presenting the most scrumptious looking Cyberman you will ever see:

Made by Truly Scrumptious , appropriately enough.

There's nothing more iconic than the TARDIS:

Found by Emily S. on diongillard's Flickr stream.

Here's one honoring my parents' favorite Doctor, Tom Baker:

Made by abbietabbie

This next on isn't actually cake; it's gingerbread. And K9 is looking suh-weet.

Found by Eric G, & made by LiveJournal member Therru


Lastly, here are some shops that know just how to dress a display window:

Posted on The Gallifreyan Embassy, but the bakery isn't listed.

Hannah C. found this display at The Cake Shop in Liverpool.

I don't know about you guys, but I would *totally* shop there. Why don't we have displays like this here in the States?

Update from john: This photo just came in from Leigh Henderson of theyrecoming.com. (She's the maker of the infamous thorax cake, so click the link at your own risk!)


Yup. It's cake. And no, she's not a professional. I can't believe it either. But that's not all...

It has an inside! She did it with mirrors and LEDs. Wow. Freakin' wow. (See more insanely detailed progress shots here.)

And did I mention wow?

I love the last cake, Martha Jones! She is my favorite. Thank you for showing the Doctor Who cakes, they totally made my day.

Brenda said...

These cakes rock!!

why is gingerbread not cake?

Leigh said...

I've just this weekend been rewatching end of Series 1 (9th Doctor) and Series 2-3 (yaaaaay 10th Doctor) to get my husband caught up on the David Tennant years. So this was both perfectly timed and perfectly awesome.

I definitely think I need a Tardis cake for my next birthday. :) Being in one's fourth decade is nothing compared to a Time Lord, right?

Shannon said...

Love the Tom Baker one! I would love to have a scarf like that. Too bad I hate knitting ;-)

Deleilan said...

Wow, these are all very impressive. I especially love the Ood!

Maddy said...

There must be some [here in the States] Have you watched 'cake boss' as they have some stunners.
Cheers

Secret Agent Crazy-Person said...

Holy. Cow. I AM SO HAPPY!

I loooooooove Doctor Who, so this is the happiest day in my life!

I love the Ood, and the Abzorbaloff. K9 is looking cuter then ever, and I think the Cyberman looks like one of those cute Galactic Heroes action figures for toddlers (anyone know what I'm talking about?).

Erika U said...

THE DOCTOR! Those are all fantastic. K9 is on someone's kitchen table, if he was made by a talented amateur, I would like to befriend that person so they would make all my cakes for me.

Nioniel said...

These are awesome! I especially like the dalek one and I'm now wondering if I can get one just like that for my daughter's eighth birthday next week.

Michelle said...

WANT.

I love Doctor Who. Now I can't decide if I want an ice cream cake or a Doctor Who cake for my birthday :)

Trudi said...

That last cake is fab, but why is Martha white? At first I thought it was supposed to be John Barrowman (but there is no Capt. Jack tradmark coat)and the figure has bossoms! David Tennant never looked so cute!

Elaine said...

Thank you for posting these great cakes!!

flutefish said...

Oh, the Dalek cake! Love it!

Richelle said...

My birthday was on the 13th so this Sunday Sweets was so perfectly timed! I Love Doctor Who! Thanks for making my birthday even more special!

Anonymous said...

Love it!!!!!

I think I may have to make a Tardis for my husband (it's bigger on the inside).

-Sea Nymph- said...

It's like you've gotten into my head- I just started re-watching episodes of Doctors 9 and 10! Now I have an excuse to eat cake while watching (but then, who needs an excuse for cake?)

I love these!! Kudos to being raised by geeks. My geekery had to develop on its own

Kenna said...

Oh my god, that Cyberman is TOO CUTE.

AliceBlue said...

I've never been prouder of being a total geek. I too grew up on Dr. Who and am loving seeing him everywhere now. Hmmm, my birthday is next month...good thing my husband took those cake decorating classes!

James said...

Gingerbread is more of a biscuit really.

My sister made a TARDIS cake for a friend's birthday recently. Not as good as these, but she's not a professional.
The blue icing stained everything it touched. She had blue fingers for about a week. :D

Nearlydawn said...

We don't have bakery windows like that because being a geek-to-the-bone has only been cool for a small number of years.

Remember, when most of us were kids, Dr. was thought to be a cult thing... It seems now like everyone was secretly a fan. :)

Therru said...

I'm trying to make up my mind whether or not I should be flattered to be featured on a blog dedicated to cakes gone horribly, hilariously wrong... ^^

...I'm going with flattered. :)

(Also, I have to mention that LJ user "pnr" was my partner in this particular crime and deserves equal blame. :) )

str4y said...

Oh, those are awesome!
I have been rewatching series 1 of the new Who stuff with my neighbors, but they have been out of town and I've had to go a couple weeks w/o...getting serious withdrawal, and I thank you for helping relieve that.

Kari said...

I've never commented before but I just wanted to say that seeing today's post absolutely made my day! Doctor who is my favourite tv show and I absolutely love the Dalek cake!

Amanda Zoe said...

@ Leigh since it's about Time Travel, just have a 2nd anniversary of your 20th!

frigglesnitz said...

I, too, was brought up the right way and Tom Baker will always be my favorite Doctor. My mother refers to her purse as the TARDIS, my sister knit herself a replica scarf, and I use the "one for casual, one for best" line as often as possible. (The Doctor is given a physical by a very confused physican, who discovers the Doctor has two hearts.)
Oh, happy day!

Fanboy Wife said...

Are we going to see Star Trek cakes next week?

Lisa said...

Woohoo for Who!! Those're awesome!

Anonymous said...

I guess I'll be the first to say that I have no knowledge of anything you're talking about in this post. I have never been a geek (nor have I claimed to be one), but these cakes are pretty impressive!

Rebekah said...

The Cyberman is adorable.

The guy from Love and Monsters is frightning.

Those Ood are just plain cool!

The Lonely Assassin is disappointment

Anonymous said...

I doubt that's Freema/Martha, more likely to be either Catherine Tate or Michelle Ryan...

They are fantastic cakes, but £650 for the last one? My second hand car cost less than that!

Cattails Quilts said...

Thanks for this one! I'm a lng-time Doctor Who fan, I even have a hand-written letter from Tom Baker to me from when I was about 7 (I had written to him and asked him where I could get my own K-9).

Now my husband & I are getting my 9-year old daughter hooked on the show too! :D

Dharmamama said...

Why, yes, I would like to eat David Tennant, thank you!

Funny - I had just google imaged "Dr. Who cakes" a couple weeks ago, planning for my son's birthday. Lots of funky Tardises! (Tardii?)

Bilby P. Dalgyte said...

OMG! I LOVE this post! I'm such a nerd XD Look! It's the monster from Clom in the last pic on the right XD Haha I want one of these! Wow, I am getting the cyberman picture and making it my desktop background XD

Leesa said...

*grabby hands* I want a K9!! I totally loved K9!!!

Leesa

Caprene said...

love Dr Who, love the cakes! Now I want a Tardis cake.

Melissa said...

I love Cake Wrecks. I love Dr. Who. Today's post is about as close to Nerdvana as I am ever going to get. Thanks for making my entire weekend!!!

Sylvia said...

From what I understand, being into science fiction is more common, and less seen as a sign of being a loser, in the UK. This according to one British guy's opinion, maybe other people would disagree.

Leah K. said...

I love these! My middle daughter was Dr. Who last Halloween, so this weeks sweets went over huge in my house! Thanks so much.

Lynda said...

THESE ROCK!!!! THESE TOTALLY ROCK!!!!

Leah said...

If my son ever sees those cakes, I am doomed...

Jimh. said...

Awesome post! Who knew!

An Unexpectant Mother said...

LOVE IT! We're huge Dr Who fans around here and this made our day. I especially loved the Ood! I could almost hear the Tardis' wooshing sound in the background!

AllTimeLow = LOVE. said...

This is my favorite Sunday Sweets ever. I love this show a little too much. The Cyberman cake is ADORABLE. :D

Ahava Jora said...

I do believe this is my personal favorite Sunday Sweets.

abysmaltinkerer said...

I have been waiting for this post since I first discovered Cake Wrecks. And you absolutely delivered!!

I love the fourth Doctor cake the best, I think, but that final display window is amazing.

Beth said...

Those are soooo cool!

Leigh said...

@ Amanda Zoe actually entered the fourth decade at 30...Not quite to the fifth yet! Seemed like a "doctor"-ish way to measure age, though!

Anonymous said...

Ok I just gotta say it (with a metallic voice)

Extermicake! Extermicake!

SciFi Mama said...

So absolutely amazing! Ah, geeks raised by geeks. What a wonderful world it is! I'm proud to say I'm raising my daughter right. She watches Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who and thinks Hellboy is her best friend.

My hubby made me a TARDIS so I could dress up as Dr. Who last year. The last TORCHWOOD special was just a tease. And so was the Dr. Who. Not so sure about this new Doctor.

We don't get displays like that because not enough bakers were raised by Geeks.

Anonymous said...

I love you so much for these!

SmilingJudy said...

Sorry, had to comment .... Dion (second cake) was a friend of mine. He would've loved that this made it onto your blog.

He passed away last year from melanoma. Watch your skin and get suspicious things checked out, folks.

Morgan the Muse said...

That is amazing! Thank you thank you thank you!

The River Otter said...

Oh, these are just too cool!

Syrad said...

I was just doing my daily check of the site before settling down to a rainy afternoon marathon of 10th Doctor Who. How coincidental and awesome! Methinks there's some timey whimey business going on here. Or maybe someone reversed the polarity on my computer at just the right moment.

Now, off to the Ood planet...

(p.s. The scarf caught in the door of the TARDIS? Too cute! I'm young enough that Ten is my Doctor, but I love Tom Baker's Doctor as well.)

Old Fashion Halloween said...

Thank you for sharing. The Tom Baker scarf cake is wonderful!

StefRobrts said...

Those are awesome! But Tom Baker's Dalek needs to lay off the cookies...

StuffCooksWant said...

I thought I was a geek, but alas, I am not. Trekkie stuff I get, but I have never seen or even heard of Doctor Who. BUT, I would SO take a big chomp out of those cakes and even the gingerbread. Yummy pup. Now, off to google Dr. Who...

Anonymous said...

Oh, happy, happy Who day! In our family's experience, Dr. Who is vastly underappreciated here in the US, which is a pity. My boys really like both Tom Baker and David Tennant as Doctors, but Tennant is the one I'd travel through time and space with. Kinda sad to see him leaving. Anyway, I made not one but two TARDIS cakes for my oldest boy's last birthday, one for practice and one for real. They're not easy to do, and I'll probably never do it again. Thanks for a brilliant Sunday Sweets!

Debbie Culpepper said...

Those cakes are all bloody amazing. I LOVE DR. WHO!!!!

Glory von Hathor said...

Defo Martha - her icing face just came up a wee bit pale. You can tell it's her in the enlarged image.

Oods make me feel sick. Luckily David Tennant is tasty in all his configurations.

Kristen said...

You know what would make a great cake? The Adipose babies...firstly, because they're cute. And secondly, because too much cake can make you fat and they're made out of...well...fat.

Deray said...

I love these sweets! I have been a fan of Dr Who for a short time but I love it and these cakes are AWEsome!

notengomiedoclay said...

I LOVE YOU JEN!!!! My husband and I are huge Doctor Who fans- it was what first brought us together, eventually leading us to having a Doctor Who themed wedding. With David Tennant's Doctor and Rose cake toppers and ALL.

You made my day. Honestly. :)

Christina M. said...

Love it! Doctor Who meets Cakewrecks! I'm the only one in my circle of friends who loves the Doctor, so it's nice seeing some more fans here in the US.

I have been a Doctor Who fan for as long as I can remember. We used to watch Tom Baker on Saturday afternoons. My husband was never very interested, until the "new" series came out. We're both completely hooked. We've just been watching the latest Torchwood miniseries, and waiting impatiently for Doctor Who to start up again. These cakes are amazing!

Rachel said...

For all of my nerdiness I don't know anything about Doctor Who. But those are awesome cakes!

veiledrose said...

Oh my gosh! Love love love today's post!

Jasmine said...

Hee! These are brilliant. I love the little scarf poking out of the TARDIS.

Yankee1969 said...

Awesome cakes. That lase cake is pretty cool. The Ood and the angels from Blink. Nice. The Tom Baker Dalek looks like it partook of a bit too much cake, but I still love it. The Fourth Doctor was when I started watching. David Tennant rocks, though. I'm sad to see him leaving. Many awesome eps during his current stint.

Anonymous said...

I'm so ashamed to point this out because it shows how big of a nerd I am. At least I'm in good company.

On that last cake, the Ood rock, but shouldn't the Weeping Angel be covering it's eyes? It is being observed, after all.

d'oh!

sarcasm397 said...

I think this is my favorite Sunday Sweets yet.

I was destined to be a Doctor Who fan from the instant my parents named me Teagan Rebekah (after Tegan Jovanka)...

Sarah said...

Thanks for posting the Doctor Who cakes! I just got back from a very long weekend at GenCon, and there were many Doctor Who sightings (last night I played a round of Are You a Werewolf? with Tom Baker himself...kind of) and an entire booth dedicated to merchandise, so these cakes fell at an appropriate time. :)

Pocki said...

Ah, that K-9 was a labour of love and pain. I have a nice battlescar from a sugar accident during the assembly process.

Geeky cakes are the best!

And I feel so honoured to be featured here with mine and therru's work.

Anthrophile said...

Love this.

I would, however, be wary of eating an Abzorbaloff...

this is your best post EVER!!!!!!! thanks!

I would definitely buy the cake with David Tennant on it. YUMMY!

Lynz said...

Wow that cyberman is amazing & the fact that it's all ebible too! I'm pretty certain that the Dalek is from Imaginative Icing in York. Check out the awesome models they made http://www.imaginativeicing.co.uk/cele_doctor_who_friends.html
I've also seen a gingerbread tardis on lj & it gives you instructions on how to make it. I'm so happy you finally did a Dr Who Sunday Sweets. Thanx

It's a Weeping Angel!

~ Keara said...

The Sunday Sweets frequently make my day, but never so much as when they are themed with geeky goodness! And Doctor Who is among the best of the geeky goodness out there. Thank you so much for sharing--love, love, love that Tom Baker TARDIS and that shop window.

Keren said...

WOW Best ever cakes, thanks so much for sharing

Goof said...

:D I remember the Tom Baker Dr. Who when I was a kid. And yes, Star Trek was a staple in our house too!

(((((HUGS)))))

Michelle said...

I almost made a TARDIS bridal shower cake for a dear friend. Unfortunately I ran out of time and made her a big chocolate cake with large red friendly letters on it that said "DON'T PANIC!".

TomLehrerLover said...

YES!!! I have been waiting -yearning- for a Who themed Sunday Sweets for such a long time! I am a dedicated Whovian, and feel the series is underappreciated in the US, where I currently reside.
Just yesterday I had an all-day Doctor Who marathon with friends! Unbelievable timing!
Thank youuuuu!

TomLehrerLover said...

Also, i LOVE the Ood and the Weeping Angel! ...and the Dalek. AHH I love it all!

Aubrey said...

I love them! I'm a huge fan and oh man I so what those!

Thanks for the great post!!!

kerry said...

This is the best yet!!!!

susurro said...

wow these are amazing. I wan't a Dr. Who cake!!!

I have a pic of David Tennant with a tiny Dalek cake in his hand on my blog from a few years back as well. (it isn't loading rt. noe for some reason but will leave link anyway) I love the creativity. :D

knitwit said...

Oh my god, you are totally psychic! My birthday was yesterday and I was going to make a cake based on the first ever cake wreck I saw--Lady Cassandra O'Brien Dot Delta Seventeen! I had my sheet cake (in carrot) all set up on the counter, and the first layer of icing on, when my sister called to wish me a happy birthday. We got talking and I wandered off. When I came back, my three year-old was standing over the cake shoving randomly-grabbed handfuls into his mouth. I shrieked in horror, realized immediately that my limited skills were not going to fix this, and ended up with a lumpy, crumby lopsided birthday cake with random holes in it. WORST BIRTHDAY EVER!

Mary said...

The Doctor!
This has got to be my favorite Sunday post to date, so rare to find so many Doctor Who fans in the states!

Nintendo Floosie said...

I love it! I love Doctor Who! I agree that gingerbread is very cake like.

BreeAnn said...

We are HUGE Dr. Who? fans, this post was wonderful! I have an autistic son who for some reason grabbed onto Dr. Who and is obsessed, and he really enjoyed all the cakes as well. There is a flickr group just for dr who cakes! Check it out.

As 9 would say, "FanTAStic!" What a great post! I'm looking forward to seeing the new Who next year.

kikimama said...

Yay, a whole post on Who cakes! Yummy, and thanks for collecting them all together! Love the cutesie one with the scarf in the door.

~ L. K. said...

As someone who was raised on Doctor Who (and Red Dwarf) since I was 5, I'm glad to see that you included some of the Old Who, as well as the New. I wish there could be a Master cake (preferably Richard Delgado-themed), although all I can think of is eating his head, which is not very pleasant. (Although one could eat his TARDIS when it was shaped as a clock, I suppose.)

This post makes me ridiculously happy. Thanks, Jen!!

Aw, neat! Dr. Who cakes that don't suck! Kudos x2 to the folks who put so much effort into making edible replicas of everyone's faveorite Timelord! (And to Jen, who is so wonderful for posting them! GEEKS UNITE!)

Little Lovables said...

wow, these are most awesome! loving the scarf peekingo out of the tardis.

I still have my dad's Dr. Who shirt from the 80;s, love it!

ps... any browncoat (firefly/serenity cakes anywhere?)

I have been waiting to see Who cakes since I started reading! They were awesome!

thisisnoone said...

So cool, I so want a tardis cake now!

But isn't the Abzorbaloff a bit out of place? if that's supposed to be Martha. Unless they met another abzorbaloff ( haven't watched all the Martha episodes) because he was with Rose for the L.I.N.D.A episode..

Lucia said...

wow! oh, wow, oh wow!

Leah said...

As a serious Doctor Who geek I find these just wonderful! I soooo want a David Tennant cake.
(650 quid for a cake, though? Between the cost and the cute factor, who would actually want to stick a knife into it?)

Sally said...

Best Sunday Sweets EVER! I really, really want a Tardis cake for my birthday.

Celeste said...

These cakes are great. Problem is that this site is about cake wrecks and not great cakes. It's disappointing in that regard.

ExtermiCAKE! ExtermiCAKE!

Lindsey said...

Total love! Now, do Blake7! ... No, better not. The show itself was such a wreck, it would surely show through in cake form.

Nevertheless, I adore this Sunday Sweets post. The Daleks are definitive Who material no matter which Who, and of course I am partial to the scarf cake as well. Tom Baker was 'my' doctor, although I do admit that I somewhat prefer Jon Pertwee, but you can't fight nostalgia.

Despite Trek running deep in my veins, I have to say I'd choose a good run of 3rd or 4th Doctor 'Doctor Who' over it if I really had to.

Donna said...

LOVE!! Love love love. I was also raised by a geek-my grandfather who loved the Doc-tah! I even had one of those corny "my other car is a TARDIS" bumper stickers on my first car *blush* I want that first TARDIS as my next birthday cake.
LOL

bodoba said...

I have never seen dr. who. Nor have I ever seen a cake that makes me want to go out and see a show...until now.

They're very well done.

joyciel said...

AAAAHHHH!!! That Cyberman is so cute! And it's practically like a real one!

And holy...that last one! It looks like it's actually bigger on the inside =D! This makes my geeky heart happy =D!

Anonymous said...

I thought I got all excited with the Harry Potter post. I wasn't. We were just talking Doctor Who and Torchwood yesterday! We were on an "alien" hunt. So naturally, conversation turned from, the weird kangaroo/bunny/alien we were looking for, to the good doctor and Capt. Jack! Can't wait to show everyone!

Walk On said...

Loved the one w/ the scarf stuck in the door of the Tardis. :D

And had to share this, since I think the crowd will get it:

I saw a cartoon years ago that showed two Daleks looking up a staircase. One says to the other "well, there go our plans for universal domination."

EEEEEEE. EEEEEEE.

Lovely Who cakes! Never seen that Cyberman before. Just.. wow.

As for no U.S. window-displays... well we just have to be a little more self-reliant and creative in expressing our Who Love then! : D

lorrwill said...

wow to the power of wow for that last one. i love all of these cos i heart 'who.

Fran McGregor said...

Just to let you all know, Dion's Tardis cake was made by Planet Cake in Sydney Australia www.planetcake.com.au, I'm pretty sure it was made by Margie Carter there, it looks like her writing to me, but don't quote me on that.

cpsk said...

TARDIS cakes--I am inspired. I'll have to try to fashion one of my own, now!
I've loved your blog for a long while now, but this post is really the icing on the cake (pun, of course, sadly intended) and compelled me to comment for the first time. You're a Who fan? Sweet indeed :)
I never knew Cybermen could look cute before . . .

diddleymaz said...

Ah Dr Who ,wonderful,as a matter of fact i can just remember the first and second Doctors and as I live in South Wales i live in hope of seeing them filming! Havnt caught any yet but I know lots of places were Torchwood and Dr have been :) The latest one has already been seen filming at a local beach that was were Rose and Tennant Dr said goodbye.And yes I raised all 4 of my kids on Trek,Who and Thunderbirds with varying results you can show em but you cant make um!

clairebear_nz said...

This is probably the first and last time I'll say this, but that Cyberman is damned adorable. I absolutely love it.

I love the Tardis cakes too, my friend and I meant to make one (although not on that scale) for our birthdays but we lacked both a rectangular cake-tin and a oven that actually cooked.

I now have the urge to rewatch the episodes I have on DVD. Which, bizzarely, include a lot of Five. And Nine. And Ten. *snuggles*

Rebecca F. said...

It is absolutely amazing to me that anyone would put so much effort into something that will be consumed. I would be so sad to see all my hard work eaten. I mean, I'm really glad that someone actually does these cakes. What talent they have!

I love looking at them but, man, maybe they should do sculpting or something more permanent.

Great post.

Italo said...

COOOOOOOOOOL! :D

Lydia said...

Oh my God, I've never commented before but had to say this post is TOTALLY AWESOME. Seriously, you made my day. And, I too have just finished rewatching series 3 and 4 - definitely something timey wimey going on. I'm young enough that Nine is my doctor (sadly not represented in cake form) but I love the Ood on that display cake. I might have to see what the bakery on town could do on the Doctor Who front...I'm in the UK, and I think the reason it's so much more popular and not seen as hopelessly geeky is that it was on Saturday teatime BBC 1 for decades, so EVERYONE over a certain age watched it as a kid. And it's such a huge part of pop culture here that the rest of us grew up sort of immersed in it - there was no Doctor Who on the telly until I was 19, but when I was little I still knew about the Tardis and daleks and cybermen....apparently in a recent National Trust survey about twice as many 8 year olds could identify a dalek as could identify a barn owl :)

Gargoyle said...

AMAZING!! As a Dr Who fan, I am very much impressed by ALL of these. Wonderfully done.
I want to have a Dalek cake for my next birthday!!!

Gargoyle said...

AMAZING!!! Fantastic cakes. I want the Dalek cake for my next birthday!!

Keeley said...

Doctor Who!!!!!

Tom Baker was my favourite too. He's the first one I remember. I knitted a scarf like that once.

I remember squealing and hiding in terror behind the couch when the daleks would say "I am a dalek" and my sister and I would freak each other out pretending to be daleks.

Ahhh. Good times, good times.

That last TARDIS is amazing. Is the inside bigger than the outside?

All I can say is these cakes are AWESOME SAUCE!

Awesome cakes!! I love the mini Cyberman and the Tom Baker scarf and the... oh who am I kidding, I love them all!

Thanks so much! Are there any Adipose cakes out there?

Are they amazing? As K-9 would say, "Affirmative!"

Omygodomygodomygodomygodomygodomygod!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm only 13 but I love Doctor Who and I so wish I had those cakes! WOW!!!

Shadow said...

Now that's what I call *proper* Doctor Who. I was raised on it too, can't bring myself to watch the latest stuff, neither can my Dad. Those cakes are just AWESOME.

cygirlkat said...

Squeeeeeee! :::claps hands like little girl:::

Sorry...been a Who fan since about '84 and I *adore* these. (The new series is fun, but there's nothing like the Classic episodes. :))

They're all fanTAStic, but the last one is just spectacular. Wow, just wow.

Gotta post a link to this at Gallifrey Base....

Melissa (& Billy) said...

I would never ever be able to eat any of these...they're just too pretty! =) I love the Tom Baker one, and the K9 is fab!

superalzy said...

That gingerbread Dogbot looks like RALPH from Flight of the Navigator! That takes me way back. I wonder if that's out on DVD...

Alison said...

What a perfect post for my son's Sunday birthday! I've loved your blog a long time, but this was a special treat for our Doctor Who-loving family. All those cakes are amazing, especially the Tardis one you can see inside!

My husband and other son both joked about having Doctor Who themes for their birthdays earlier this year, but I couldn't find anything related in the US without waiting too long for mail order. Now I do have some Dalek goody bags and a toy Tardis for the next occasion...too bad I can't make a cake like any of these, and I doubt I could get one from a local bakery, either!

PLATEMATE said...

OMG, I love them all! Those of us raised on PBS & BBC from the 60's know all the Doctors. Raised by Geeks is good. What a wonderful line up of tribute cakes you gave us on this site. I would almost be a shame to cut them; I said almost. Thank you, I salute you.

Beth Dolgner said...

I love these! After catching Dr. Who on BBC America the past year or so, I finally broke down and started watching them in order just last week. I started with series 2 - what can I say, I like David Tennant. I was raised geek, too, but Dr. Who was never part of the repertoire. I have a lot of lost time to make up for!

Melissa said...

Love the Master! When's he going to show up in the new one anyway? Or has he already?
I was so lame I used to watch old Dr. Who episodes on new year's eve with my parents growing up. I'd be the only one awake at midnight, watching Dr. Who + companion get away for the fifth time with the help of K-9 or the handy dandy sonic screwdriver. :)

I am a Doctor Who geek... I actually just got an offical Doctor Who TARDIS usb hub in the mail today so it was perfect timing that I checked your blog! :)

Wonderful cakes! My whole family love Doctor Who! We actually found weeping angels in Asuncion, Paraguay ... http://www.flickr.com/photos/moldovanhome/2763472777/in/set-72157606643076177/

My daughter is studying Baking & Pastry Arts and your website is an inspiration (and caution!) I'm hoping for some Doctor Who and Buffy cakes!

As the maker of the last cake, I just wanted to pass along a link to my website, where you see more photos of the cake, including some post-cutting views that prove that it is, in fact, made of cake. I'm working on a full writeup of the construction process, which I hope to have done in the next couple days.

ZOMG SQUEEE!!!!!!

You've made this Whovian a very happy fangirl. That cyberman is just adorable (which is kinda wrong, but whatever). And so many lovely Tardises. I especially like the horizontal one with the little chrome door handles. And the gingerbread K-9. (And here I thought David Tennant's Doctor was the one who wanted to be ginger. [/pun] I'm so sorry.)

The trouble is I wouldn't want to eat them. I'd just want to gaze lovingly at them.

Absolutely fantastic cakes. I adore David Tennant so was very pleased to see him as a figurine!

Great blog,

These cakes are totally freaking sweet. I love Cake Tennant and Freema, and the TARDIS interior of the Cake Police Box is...just incredible. Each and every one was made by a genius! Bravo.

Martha said...

Gah, I love Doctor Who! Between this and the recent Sunday Sweets Harry Potter posts, I'm in nerd heaven.

Sarcasm397: I was named after Tegan Jovonka too! And here I thought I was the only one.

These all are amazing; especially the last one!

Ely said...

Awesome!
Now all we need are Torchwood cakes.
I think 1 of a stopwatch would be good! (If you got that joke, I love you and will you marry me? haha)

highway o' caterpillars, yeah. HA HA HA.

Excuse me, I have to go outside and cry.

Bree said...

I LOVE Doctor Who and that Cyberman is, as Nine would say, fantastic!

I need to find a DW-loving man so that last cake can be our wedding cake. My mom would never approve though---she tried to watch the show one night and said it was "too weird." Yet she can sit through two hours of American Idol auditions. She can have those wailers, I'll take a Time Lord any day of the week!

sponzar said...

These cakes are just wonderful. I am a big Doctor Who fan and my jaw dropped. They're just staggeringly beautiful and detailed. Wonderful job bakers, keep doing your goodies in fan art form. I absolutely love you for it.

Shayne said...

As a big Doctor fan, this post made me jump up and down in my chair! Awesome cakes! (I now know what suggestive link to send to my husband for my next birthday!)

Suzanne Dargie said...

YAY! This is the BEST post you've EVER DONE!!! I know they're not "wrecks" but who cares!
They're GREAT!!!!!!

Wow, "Who" knew there were so many Dr. Who fans out there? All the nerds are coming out of the closet to express their fan-hood.

Jynxed said...

If anyone got me a cake from here, I might feint from happiness, if I don't die.

Alexas said...

I never thought of a Tardis cake, but my hubby would die of happiness if I got him one for his birthday!! Thanks for these!!

Dorci said...

I just came across this video and thought you might enjoy it. Especially if you love Pinky and the Brain as much as I do.

The inside of the last one isn't SO impressive -- I'll bet it isn't even bigger than the outside!

Anonymous said...

It's incredible how that last cake actually looks bigger on the inside than the outside!

I'm pretty sure the dalek cake is from Charm City Cakes

This just made my day even better.
In a half hour 'Docter Who: Waters of Mars' is going to premire!!

Rebekah said...

Oh man, I need to have a cake like these. The perfect addition to any Dr. Who fan's collection!

Cupcakes Lady said...

Hello, I've just recently found your blog and I am really enjoying it. I hope you don't mind me having a look about...I do love cakes so it gets me through the office hours! :) Suzanne X

Cupcakes Lady said...

I like the Tardis style cake here. I got one form a supermarket recently for my son, but its was nothing like this! Look great and probably tasted delicious! Suzanne X

Lily said...

ok, only one thing can possibly suit the epicness of Doctor Who: *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!* (all teary-eyed) May the Wi-Fi God bless your soul.

Sadie said...

Any one of these would be a geeks (or doctor who fans) dream cake! The ood, doctor, martha, tardis... so great...

Emi_Tennant said...

I <3 doctor who! This completely made me super happy! lol does that even make sense? Well im inspired to go make a doctor who cake now! :)

Anonymous said...

Wow, I absolutely LOVE the one with Martha...wow, but that Abzorbaloff part reminds me of a really WEIRD episode. Well, I actually have Doctor Who to thank for getting me hooked on ELO, so "Love and Monsters" wasn't TOO bad. I love ELO!!

The Dalek cake picture posted at The Gallifreyan Embassy is from Imaginative Icing at 21 Lendal in York. I took a picture of the same cake when I visited in June 2005.
