Dalek Cake (Doctor Who)

Mummy Mishaps To co-incide with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, Lakeland have launched a range of bakeware perfect for all fans of the sci fi cult series. I was sent a couple of items but the main one was the (exclusive to) Lakeland Dalek cake mould. Having seen another blogger bake this cake a couple of weeks ago, I had an idea of what the baked cake would look like but even so I was still nervous and wondering if the cake would come out of the mould intact! Luckily it did, bar the ‘ears’ see below, thanks to some cake release which I applied liberally!

The next conundrum was trying to fathom out the best way of decorating it. .Having googled ‘dalek’ images I discovered that the modern day daleks are much more colourful than the ones from my youth. However, not being very skilled at using fondant icing I decided to keep my cake simple. I baked a chocolate cake to create a dark brown coloured dalek and then I simply dusted the cake with edible silver silk.
