I came up with these for my son's birthday years ago & have brought them to Halloween parties & etc since.
Better than making one big Dalek cake I think, since everyone (especially the kids) loves getting a little one of their own : )
It's a lot of work, though. A labor of love. Or megalomania - depending on the cook.
BTW: Apologies for the horrible pictures. The kitchen I made these in at the time had really poor lighting, and I've never got it together enough to do a re-shoot.
Step 1: Ingredients (pt1)
Hostess (or other mass produced) chocolate cupcakes - Buy as many cupcakes as you want to have Daleks. Adjust quantities of other ingredients as necessary.
Chocolate chip morsels
Chocolate sandwich cookies (like Oreos)
Mini chocolate frosted donuts (approx. size of cookies)
Fudge covered marshmallow cookies
Small pretzel sticks, Chocolate covered Pocky
Cheerios (colored, if you can get them)
Good & Plenty candy (red bits only)
A drinking straw to use as a tool
Cookie sheets for transport & storage
Base to set your work up on (helps with frosting process). I used styrofoam bowls, turned upside down
Step 2: Step 1 - set up
Please both on top of inverted bowl. This makes frosting and deco process easier.
Step 3: Step 2 - 4 Stacking ingredients
on top of the inverted cupcake.
a mini donut,
& a marshmallow fudge cookie,
(with some frosting in between each for 'glue').
Step 4: Step 5 - Icing
Cover the donut & cupcake with chocolate frosting.
Leave the cookies showing.
