In other news: Joshua wants a Doctor Who-themed birthday party.
I am excited. It’s not until June, but any excuse to start planning, right? There will be pin-the-tail-on-the-werewolf. There will be a puppet show, almost certainly with Ice Warriors. There will be costumes. I will probably go as a Slitheen. I already have the build.
Emily and I have been racking our brains to find appropriate foods. Thus far, and with more than a little help from Gareth, this is what we’ve come up with.
- Monster Munch
- Salami (see here)
- Fish Fingers & Custard
- Dalek Bread
- Oodles (plate of noodles, with a glowing sphere attached)
- Smith’s Crisps
- Wafers of Mars
- Jelly Babies
- Eccles-ton Cakes
- Black Forest of the Dead Gateau
- Cakes with ball bearings on
- Rutan (i.e. lime) Jelly
- Weeping Angel Cake
For the adults (because we will need it in the evening)
- Tennant’s lager
- Bottle of wine, with the top half made to look like Dalek Sec
I fear a little refining may be in order, but what the hell, we’ve got three months. In the meantime I draw inspiration from last year, when (on a sunny afternoon when the warm weather went to our heads a bit) we combined the remnant’s of Daniel’s Makka Pakka cake with what was left of the TARDIS cake that one of Emily’s old friends – who was visiting – had made the day before. The results were intriguing:
You see what I mean. It’s like something out of MechWarrior, as imagined by a five-year-old. Tasted nice, though.
