In the whole realm of stacked cakes, the Dalek cake might be the most difficult to make. However, this was made easier by creating design plans based on Dr. Who manuals. Styrofoam is used in several areas of the cake to ensure that the cake is lighter weight (as if 44 pounds was not enough) and there is less waste of resources. The design also includes 28 styrofoam balls which are split into half, covered with icing and then painted. The cake consists of two major portions which are covered with chocolate ganache and then in fondant and stacked one on top of the other. The other parts are slowly added and special focus given to the detail, all of which resulted in an exquisite, yet delectable, Dalek cake.
