Attention Dr Who fans….  Do you need cupcakes and snack for a Dr Who party?  What could be better than Dalek chocolate cupcakes?

The recipe below is form the BBC Dr Who website. A link to the original cupcake recipe is at the bottom of this post.

To Americanize this recipe, simply back regular size cupcakes  and also mini-cupcakes. Take the wrappers off of both after baking.  Use frosting to attach an inverted mini-cupcake to the top of a regular sized cupcake, and then frost with Chocolate icing.


Use Pocky or chocolate dipped pretzels for the arms, and chocolate chips for the round sensors.


Mini Chocolate Dalek Cakes

Makes 6 – PREP 35 mins – COOK 20-25 mins – Moderately easy


1 stick of butter, softened, plus extra for greasing

1 cup light brown soft sugar

2 large eggs

1 cup self-raising flour

½ cup ground almonds

1⁄2 tsp baking soda

5 tbsp cocoa, plus a little extra for decorating

½ cup milk

To Decorate

4oz bar dark chocolate, chopped

4oz bar milk chocolate, chopped

1 cup heavy cream

6 marshmallows

1 – 2 cups chocolate drops

few thin sticks licorice or Japanese chocolate pocky sticks


1.  Heat oven to 350F. Grease and line the bases of 6 dariole moulds or individual metal pudding basins with baking parchment or grease-proof paper. Put the butter, sugar, egg, flour, ground almonds, bicarbonate, cocoa and milk in a mixing bowl. Beat together until lump-free. Divide between the tins then bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and a skewer poked in comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes, then remove from tins and cool completely – upside-down.

2.  Mix the two chocolates in a heatproof bowl. Heat the cream to just below boiling point, then pour over the chocolate and stir together until melted and smooth. Chill until thick enough to spread.

3. Use a small dot icing to stick a marshmallow to the top of each cake. Completely ice all the marshmallow-topped cakes. Dot with chocolate drops to look like the outside of a dalek, and add small sticks of licorice or pocky sticks to be the guns, arms and eye-sticks.
