Make an army of Daleks ready to invade your next party!
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)

Ready made chocolate frosting
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

Set a cupcake upside down on the little card stock base that comes with it in package. This helps you move the piece later.
Please both on top of inverted bowl. This makes frosting and deco process easier.

Step 3: Step 2 - 4 Stacking ingredients

I made two of these for my girlfriend's birthday, I can say with confidence that you'll have made a 20 year old's day.

Here's an album of them, I added another oreo cookie to give them more height.
