Cracking DIY Doctor Who Cookies (cos cookies are cool)
Hands up who’s excited for Jodie??? I cannot wait! I think I might wet myself with excitement! In just a few days we’re gonna get to see a woman running around fixing things and saving the world, how cool is that?! I can’t wait!
In preparation for her big reveal I thought I’d make these cracking Doctor Who cookies celebrating the quite frankly magnificent styling we’ve had so far. And it looks set to continue with Whittakers rainbow tee. Lovely! The eagle eyed among you might be like wait where is Eccleston?? Well, to be honest, I ditched him. I may have liked him as a doctor but the leather jacket? C’mon now love, you can do better.
Right shall we allons-y?
makes 8-12 sandwiches
1 batch of your favourite sandwich cookie recipe (I used this one)
100g blue fondant
100g white fondant
50g black fondant
50g red fondant
20g each of yellow, orange, green and purple fondant
Mix up your cookie batter to your chosen recipe and cut into circles. Bake and leave to cool. Whip up your filling and leave to the side.
For the decorations I used a dusting of cornflour to stop the fondant sticking to the counter and then at the end brushed them off with a little vodka or water to get rid of the dust.
Roll flat a small piece of white fondant to 1-2mm thick and using the same cookie cutter as before, cut out a circle. Move the circle gently to a tray lined with parchment paper, by building it on the parchment paper we wont need to move it later.
Next roll flat a small piece of blue fondant, just bigger than the circle. cut in half so you have 2 straight edges. Line these up diagonally on top of the white circle to create his jacket. Secure in place with a little brushing of water underneath.
When the jacket is safely in place, use the cookie cutter to trim the excess from the edges.
With the remaining blue fondant cut out two lapels and add them on top, lining up the straight edges with the jacket.
To make his collar roll flat a piece of white fondant and cut a ‘W’ into the bottom. dampen the top of the circle and attach the ‘W’ in place, lining up the centre point with the centre of the shirt. Use the cookie cutter to trim the excess.
Next, using the red fondant this time cut out 2 diamonds for his tie, one small and one elongated. Secure into place and you’re done!
As before, cut out a thin white circle. This will be our base.
Just the same as Tenants, cut out a white ‘W’ and attach along the top for a collar. trim the excess.
Next roll a small piece of red fondant into 2 long skinny ropes. Run these down the sides where his braces should go. Secure with water and trim the excess.
Roll another skinny rope, this time in white and attach it running straight down the centre from the point of the collar. Using your finger, gently smooth over the top to flatten it slightly.
Next cut out 2 small red triangles for a bow tie. Secure in pace over the collar with water.
Roll a tiny ball of red between your forefinger and the palm of your hand. Attach to the centre point of the bowtie and gently flatten.
Use this same technique but this time using white fondant to create tiny balls for buttons. Stick 4 of these at equal distances down the front of the shirt and gently flatten. Using a toothpick, press a little dent into the centre of each.
Ta da! Bow ties are cool
As with Tenant and Smith, create a circle in white fondant. Repeat to make another circle, this time in black. Cut in half. Roll flat a small piece of red fondant, just bigger than each half. Line these up with the black siting on top of the red covering roughly 2/3. Attach with a little water and trim the excess.
Repeat for the other half.
Attach these on top of the white circle, following the curve. Fold back a little fondant at the top for lapels and then a little more at the bottom to create the iconic red swoop.
Repeat the same methods used for Tenant and Smith to create the collar and shirt.
This time, make your base circle in blue fondant instead of white and move to the parchment lined tray.
Next roll super skinny ropes in all the rainbow colours.
Wet the centre of the base with a little water and line up the rainbow ropes in rainbow order. Trim the excess with the cookie cutter.
Roll 2 more ropes in yellow, a little thicker this time. Attach these running straight down the sides and trim the excess.
And you’re done! The cutest and simplest saved til last.
When all the decorations are ready and the cookies thoroughly cooled, attach the decorations to the top with a thin spreading of icing. I find it best to flip the cookies and use the underside as the top, this way you get a perfectly flat surface. Finally, add your filling to the non-decorated cookies and sandwich up. I have to say, they make a much better pairing than fish fingers and custard.
