The BBC television show Doctor Who follows The Doctor and his companion as they travel through time and space saving alien civilizations and often the Earth. The Doctor himself is an alien from the planet Gallifrey who travels in a time machine disguised as a police public call box from mid-20th century London.
The time machine, called a TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space), is easily recognized by any Doctor Who fan. In order to celebrate my brother R’s birthday, and the upcoming 50th year anniversary of one of my favourite television shows, I decided to bake a TARDIS cake. I built a time machine out of cake.
