Move over, Dalek
We missed Doctor Who this weekend. We were too busy living it!
I'm rather alarmed to realise that it has been four whole years since my mother last received a Dalek birthday cake, but this year has surpassed all previous attempts. The idea is that, should the Daleks be considering yet another invasion of Earth, they will see us consuming their life-like effigies without mercy and get on the first bus back to Skaro. Also, my Mum really loves Daleks.
Behold the original Dalek Cake made by my sister back in 2007.
Mum's birthday isn't for another few weeks, but since my sister, Alex and baby Sophie were coming for the weekend, Stephen and I set about making a Dalek cake so we could celebrate the birthday while we were almost all together.
Behold, Extermicake 2012:
I can't tell you how to make it stand up straight or be Dalek-shaped because we achieved neither of these objectives.
Right, I hope you paid attention to all that or how are you going to make one yourself?
See the Flickr Dalek Cake Group for more Dalek cakes - some are even better than ours! Some, however, are worse.
Baby Sophie was awake much more than when I first met her. She's a very happy baby and has begun to smile a little. I will put some photos of her up on my Flickr stream once I have organised myself.
