 I had wanted to post these last weekend, but because of the cake, I found I had very little time to be on my computer. Besides, getting my electronics covered in a layer of sugar was not at the top of my to-do list.

And for the past few days, I haven't wanted to look at fondant, let alone blog about it. But truth be told, these buggers are too cute not to share.

I made these for the season premier of Doctor Who, but they're adorable for just about any occasion. Make them for your next Doc themed party, or pin this page for the 50th anniversary special this fall 😉

You will need:

  • Cookies (store bought mix is fine)
  • Fondant (see below)
  • Buttercream frosting (see below)
  • Gel food dye
  • Various cookie cutters and fondant tools (I will do a blog post about my tools and tips soon, I promise)
  • Vodka
  • paintbrush

The sugar cookies are from a mix, not going to lie. But it saved me a bunch of time! And I used a leveled 2" cookie scoop to make them all even. I had some fondant left over from making a cake with Beth a few weeks ago, and so I just used that. Otherwise, use the recipe on the wilton website.

I also whipped up a quick batch of buttercream, so use your go-to recipe, use mine, or buy a container from the store. A thin layer on the cookies to act as glue for the fondant should work fine.

Using your food coloring, dye a ball of fondant Tardis Blue. Roll it out using powdered sugar so that it doesn't stick, and using a circle cutter roughly the same size as the cookie, cut out circles.

Smooth them onto the cookies (use crisco on your fingertips to smooth out cracks)

Color a ball of fondant dalek grey and make a dalek-y shape for the bottom half. Paint the back of the grey fondant with a thin layer of vodka, and press onto the blue cookie. With your favorite tool (a straight-edge ruler works in a pinch), indent 5 lines down the dalek body. Press dark grey sugar pearls into the fondant. They don't stick as well to the fondant as they do frosting, so you have to push them in pretty far so they don't pop out.

Add strips of black to the top and bottom.

For the Dalek head I used a smaller circular cutter to make a circle, then split it in half. This became his helmet. Thin strips of alternating black and grey fondant, and then a black body. The eye stalk, entenna, suction cup, and blast gun were constructed using tiny pea sized balls of fondant, shaping them with fondant tools, and gluing them down using vodka.

As you can see, I probably should have rolled the fondant much thinner, as each cookie ended up being like an inch thick. But I love the dismembered look of having tops and bottoms. Much easier than trying to fit an entire dalek on one cookie. Plus, they somehow feel safer not being in one piece.

P.S. I AM SO EXCITED FOR DAVID TENNANT AND BILLIE PIPER TO RETURN FOR THE 50th ANNIVERSARY!!! Like, hopping up and down like a little girl excited. 🙂
