Rise of the Daleks  
Our middle child had her birthday party recently. She's Dr Who mad! However, for her birthday she wanted to celebrate with the Daleks. A Dalek cake, game, & pinata to go along with her Dalek invitations.

So my husband was in charge of the game and pinata. Thus began our decent into the world of Davros ...


The Daleks Rise!.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3 (showing the candy chute aka an empty paper towel roll)

Step 4 The Dalek begins to rise!

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7 (A turkey baster, styrofoam balls and a blue permanent marker)

The finished pinata (made into a pull string version much to the dismay of our middle child)

A close-up of the work of art

Pin the weapon on the Dalek game.  Not too shabby considering he did it in an hour on party day.

Barbie took over from Davros at this point.  It had to be a "PINK" Dalek.  Her head (I assume it's a her) is a Bundt cake, the body is 4 round layer cakes.

Fun was had by all.  Hopefully those here on the Crafty Tardis will enjoy as well.

My appolgoies! I'm working on figuring out the LiveJournal coding and I used the "cut" but it put the images up anyway. If someone can tell me how to fix it, I'm happy to do so.

What you do is you do <*lj-cut*> all the picture links and stuff go here <*/lj-cut*> (obviously taking out the stars)

And everything is marvelous! I may have to make a Dalek pinata one of these days..

Yup, it should go:


That pinata is AMAZING! I may have to make one for my 22nd birthday, why should kids get to have all the fun? ;)

does it show this < /div >

This usually happens to me and as soon as I take this out of the coding, lj cut seems to work.

That is fantastic! I'm trying to pull together a Doctor Who birthday party as well and this is such a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

I love the 'how to' on the Dalek Pinata!! And that cake looks amazing. Mmmmm.

I've got some pink yarn left, so I may have to knit or crochet a pink dalek now.

Very cool party.

The cake looks yummy. I'd be torn between eating it and admiring it though.
