doctor cake

Imagine it being your birthday! You go the whole adventure for that day without a single mention of it from the Doctor. You even try to drop really obvious hints, but they seem to go right over his head. Then when you are both safe in the TARDIS after a long days work, you head to bed, bummed that he hadn’t seemed to remember at all. Only to find an hour later, when he called you back into the console room, that he had lit candles all around- on the railings, and the console. You found him standing next to the console, a destroyed cake upside down on his head, looking miserable.

“We had a bit of a malfunction.”
“… Aww, Doc, you look so adorable when you’re sad!”
“I did try to make it perfect though! I got you a present and everything… I’m sorry about the cake… Happy Birthday, Humany.”
“Thank you, Doctor. This is… truly adorable. I thought you’d forgotten!”
“No no no! There were just lots of… challenges.”

(Requested by @willow-days02, Happy birthday!!! I don’t know when you sent in the request, but still :DD)

This used to be my big passion - soapmaking! Not that melt-and-pour garbage you can get a hobby stores, but real soap made with lye and quality oils/butters, that needs to cure for 4-8 weeks because you can use it. Most of these are from 2011/2012, I got pregnant in early 2013 and didn’t want to breathe in the lye fumes. Then, well, babies/toddlers are needy! I’m hoping to get back into it now that I have made fragrances for Fallout 4 and Star Wars.

(Absolutely on my to-do soap list: Fancy Lads Snake Cakes and Abraxo)

TARDIS Blue Velvet Cupcakes with Galaxy Cream Cheese Frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare cupcake pan with paper liners. I used shiny silver foil liners for mine since they seemed to go well with the theme.

Cake Ingredients:

2 cups sugar
2 sticks butter (at room temperature)
2 eggs
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon royal blue gel food coloring
2 ½ cups cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vinegar

In a mixing bowl or stand mixer cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add each egg one at a time, mixing well after each. Add the vanilla, cocoa, and food coloring, and continue mixing until well combined. Sift together the flour and salt, adding it to the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Lastly, combine the baking soda and vinegar and add it to the mixture. (Keep in mind that the batter will appear darker after baking. As you can see in the photo, my cake turned out to be too dark, so this recipe has been altered to include a reduction in the amount of food coloring used)

Pour the batter into the cupcake liners and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow your cupcakes to cool completely before frosting them.

Frosting Ingredients:

1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
½ stick unsalted butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whip together the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract until well combined. Mix in the powdered sugar. To make the galaxy swirls, divide your frosting into three separate bowls. Add different amounts of blue and purple food coloring to each bowl until you’ve reached your desired shades. For my cupcakes I created one dark blue, one medium purple, and one light blue batch. Scoop each color into a piping bag (or large Ziploc bag) so that they are side by side in a triangle formation (not on top of each other). Snip off the corner of your bag and swirl the frosting onto the cupcake in a clockwise motion, making sure all three colors come out.

Optional Decorations:

  • edible stars (can be purchased online here or at Michael’s)
  • fondant sheets cut into star shapes (can be purchased online here, also available at Michael’s)
  • silver peal dust (can be purchased online here, also available at Michael’s)
