FREEZE! or you will be exterminated by 

OK, so this is not exactly fine art. More so an experiment in ice-cream and whipped cream. (Although it has taken longer to create than most of my artworks!)

My son is a huge Dr Who fan so we decided to make a Dr Who ice-cream cake for his 5th birthday.

Everything is edible except the doctor himself.

Hope you like it! (My son loved it)

Thankyou so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my artwork!
A lot of my original artwork displayed on here is also available for sale. Please feel free to send me a message for more details.

    thanks. I just realised that I had the really dodgy side of the tardis facing the front.

    this is totally awesome! the daleks are priceless and even the Doctor looks good enough to eat :o)

  • thanyou! I thought you might like it. Each of the Daleks were a different flavoured icecream. I felt a bit sad cutting them in half to eat them.

    We made gingerbread Doctors and Roses to go with our Tardis… felt bad about eating them at first… but then it just became too much fun running them around the table delivering our favorite lines before consuming them in particular gruesome fashion. :o) We also filled our gingerbread Tardis with candies to show how much bigger it is on the inside :o) We like food you can play with first! These are a real delight though, unmistakably Daleks with none of the nasty clean up.

  • After seeing your gingerbread tardis, my kids now want to make one for Christmas. Love the idea of a gingerbread doctor as well. They could even have a little jacket and bow tie. LOL

    Speaking as huge Dr. Who fans ourselves . . . we love it. Happy birthday to your son.

  • Thankyou. He is probably the only 5 year old in the country to have a Dr Who ice cream cake. LOL. My side of the family know nothing about Dr Who so they really had no idea what the cake was about. :)

    I have no idea what Dr Who is about either, but that looks like it took forever to make and delicious!

  • I had to pace myself and do a little bit each day. Being icecream it was great cause it could be kept in the freezer and there was no rush to complete it all at once.

    I love Dr Who and I love this image!!

  • I can’t believe a year has passed since I made this! We all love dr who in our household. My son even has his own bow tie and sonic screwdriver lol! Luckily he has requested a much simpler cake for next weekend :)

    I would hire you to do my next cake but I see you’re down in Oz ~~ afraid it’s quite a distance from the US of A. LOL!! Really, this blows me away! It’s something I might TRY but I’m sure I’d gum it up… :))

  • You’d actually be surprised how easy it is. You just need to find things the right shape and size to put the softened icecream in. For the Darleks it was a cup lined with plastic wrap. Once it is set, you tip it out. Then I added a cube of choc coated honeycomb followed by a large marshmallow. Cover it in whipped cream and then add the bits and pieces for decoration like the strips of licorice and freeze again.
    Tupperware make a container for holding tinned beetroot etc which made a perfect shape for the tardis.
