These two awesome Doctor Who-themed cakes were created by the Bleeding Heart Bakery in Chicago, IL. It took their crafty bakers 12 hours to create the Dalek cake. It looks so good, we don’t know whether to take a big bite or run for our lives.
We were sorry to discover that the bakery closed in the summer of 2012. Fortunately we can still check out many of their astonishingly creative and skillfully constructed cakes via their Flickr stream, including individual photo sets for the Dalek cake and the TARDIS cake.
Michelle of gnomeclothes created these awesome Doctor Who costumes with and for her Whovian daughters. One of them dressed as the Doctor emerging from a TARDIS while the other wore a spectacular Dalek Caan costume. The family spent three months working together on these geektastic ensembles.
Visit Costume Works for more photos and to read about how they did it.

Peter Byrne photographed this awesome straw Dalek sculpture in a field in Nantwich in Cheshire, England. The giant malevolent cyborg was created by Snugburys ice cream shop.
Snugburys has been constructing incredible straw sculptures in their field along side Chester Road for the last 10 years. This year’s sculpture coincides with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
We hope you’re all on summer vacation or have plenty of paid time off saved up because we keep finding fantastic new destinations for Geyser of Awesome field trips, like this awesome Doctor Who-themed corn maze.
Located in northern England in the Yorkshire countryside and created from over 1.5 million corn plants, the York Maze (or Maize-Maze) is roughly 300 meters long and takes an average of 1.5 hours to solve. It’s thought to be the biggest corn maze in the world and it’s theme changes from year to year.
This year’s Doctor Who maze features a giant Dalek as well as images of the first and current Doctor. There appear to be some actual Daleks lurking in the maze itself, so be on your guard. We’re guessing there aren’t any Dalek-proof stairs to use as an escape route. There’s also a TARDIS in there somewhere, which might be how Colin Baker, the 6th incarnation of The Doctor, was able to drop in for a visit.

Science + Doctor Who = Awesome
You’re looking at a Dalek that was grown in a Petri dish by a microbiologist and Doctor Who fan known as who-lligan:
My contribution to the Doctor Who Tumblr Tumbler Tumblr. A Dalek…grown in bacteria on a Petri dish (It’s E. coli, if you are interested).
‘Cause I’m not very good at art, but at least I’ve got science!

Germinate! Germinate! British photographer Chris Balcombe is a prolific collector of original Doctor Who props, some of which date back to the 1960s. Included in enviable his collection are a number of different Daleks. However the incredibly awesome “Dalek Planter” pictured above was built by Chris himself, who modeled it after the golden Daleks which battled both Christopher Eccleston’s ninth Doctor and David Tennat’s tenth Doctor.
TARIDIS vs Dalek Salt and Pepper Shakers - If you’re a real Doctor Who fan, you won’t be able to resist this set of salt and pepper shakers. Otherwise, how will you be able to pretend every meal is an episode of your favorite show? The Daleks have invaded planet Brunchifrey and suddenly the TARDIS appears. The rest of the story is up to you, but we’re going to bet the solution somehow involves mashed potatoes and reversing the polarity of the neutron flow.
We absolutely love these awesome Doctor Who cookies! They’re the work of The Cookie Cowgirl. Each of the eleven Doctors has been depicted with remarkable detail. There’s also a fantastic Dalek, the TARDIS, one of the Cybermen, three Sonic Screwdrivers, and even a haunting silhouette of one of the Weeping Angels. These treats might just be too awesome to eat. Maybe.
