I have fallen behind on my cake blogging. It has been a crazy summer so far and it seems like I’m making at least one cake a month if not two.
Here we’re going to transport ourselves back to May 6, 2012 with this fabulous TARDIS cake I completed for a friend of a friend who has a Doctor Who obsession.
Now, granted this isn’t what I’d put on my list as a “Great Job” but considering the circumstances I made it under (a bad reaction to new medication, and a 100 degree fever) I’d say it’s pretty darn good.
The Black and White wavy lines around the outer edge are to make it appear as though it is traveling through space.... oooo.... ahhh.... Nice.
