Tardis Birthday Cake

Ernie wanted a Tardis birthday cake this year.

I didn't want to make a lay-down-front-view sort of thing, I liked the idea of making a 3d model of it.

Problem was that the kids like sponge cake and it doesn't lend itself to these proportions!

Well, we just about managed to pull it off after one very late night.

It's a seven layer sponge with butter cream icing between the layers.

It has some wooden dowel support inside and each face was panelled and windowed up in fondant so it looked *proper* from any side.

It was a bit wobbly looking, but not too bad for someone who only makes 2 cakes a year!

It's dimentions are roughly 6" x 6" x 12"
