In honour of Doctor Who’s return, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you all my Dalek recipe! Now this is a rather lengthy process but with this handy dandy guide you’ll be exterminating your sweet tooth with this recipe!
What do I need?
- Self Raising Flour
- Caster Sugar
- Candy Sticks
- Mini Marshmallows
- Decorative Sprinkle Balls
- Small, medium and large cupcake cases
- Frosting/Icing (for this recipe I like to use Betty Crocker’s Fudge icing although if you prefer vanilla you can always use that instead!)
Step 1: The Cupcakes!
- 100g Self Raising Flour
- 100g Butter
- 100g Caster Sugar
- 2 Eggs
What do I do next?
(Note: Don’t forget to buy cupcake cases/icing! Although icing is optional!)
- Preheat the oven to 180C
- Beat the sugar and butter together until you get a nice fluffy mixture
- Sieve the flour into the mixture
- Beat the eggs together
- Gradually mix in the eggs
- Divide mixture between the small, medium and large cupcake cases and put in the oven for 15-20 minutes
- Allow to cool
Step 2: Rock your body!
Now that the hard bit is over, it’s time to get messy!
- Carefully cut off the top of the large cupcake so that it is flat
- Turn over the medium cupcake on top of the large cupcake
- Add a small bit of the icing mixture to the top of the medium cupcake and place your Oreo on top
- Add another small bit of the icing mixture on top of the Oreo and place the smallest cupcake upside down on top
- This is the messy part – take the icing and spread it over the body until it is completely covered
- Take two Candy Sticks and snap one of them in half
- Push the smaller stick into the side of the smallest cupcake on top. This will be the eye stalk
- Place the remaining two pieces into the medium size cupcake so that they match up adjacent with the eye stalk
- Use the smaller balls and put four in a line down the body. Repeat around the body
- Place two mini marshmallows at either side of the Dalek’s head
- Place in the fridge until they are relatively hardened
- Repeat until you have as many Daleks as you want to take over the kitchen!
So there you have it! Dalek Cupcakes! I managed to get about five out of a single mixture so feel free to repeat the process in order to get more. I hoped you enjoyed this tutorial and try out your very own. In the words of our favourite pepper pots…
