Final Assembly and Decorating
First we have create the eye stalk, the manipulator arm, and the gun stick.
Eye Stalk (make 4 of these):
Melt a small amount (~1/4 c) of chocolate or chocolate coating (you can use the white coating from previous if you like, and just spray it silver afterwards, but I had some chocolate so that’s what I used.)
Cut the pointier end of your Mike and Ike candy (the blue one) off, so you have about 2/3 of the candy left. Using a toothpick, carefully stab through the center of the rounded end, so you can dip it in chocolate. Dip most of the way, but leave the rounded end exposed, so you still see the blue. Let dry.
Remove the toothpick, and reinsert it in the other end.
Use scissors to cut off the end of a small marshmallow, making a disk. Stab it onto the toothpick and slide up. Repeat so you have 2 marshmallow disks about a 1/4in from the eye.
Gun Stick (4)
Basically, take a blue Mike and Ike candy and insert a toothpick into the wide end. I then painted on stripes of chocolate, meeting at the pointy end. Let dry.
Manipulator Arm (4)
For the arm, My Handy Husband suggested a Dum Dum lollypop, cut in half. He took a Dremel with a saw blade attachment and cut it, smoothly up any rough edges with the microplane zester. I then turned it cut side down and dusted the outside with silver spray (which was pretty much empty at this point!). If that’s too much for you, you can always use half a round chocolate candy impaled on a tooth pick.
Extra Fondant Touches
Using your leftover gray/silver fondant, add a small pea sized ball in the center front of the head where you’ll place the eye stalk, and a strip with two small balls on the front of the silver strip where the arms go.
Using a toothpick to make a pilot hole, insert the stick of your Dum Dum into the left body fondant ball. Stab the right fondant ball with your Gunstick toothpick. Both should stick straight out, and will be held in place by the structure of the cake cone.
Wet the end of a tic tac, and carefully press into the head, one on either side, to make the lights.
Then press your eye stalk toothpick into your fondant ball in the center of the head, sticking straight out.
Using some icing, glue the head assembly to the body assembly. Let dry.
Place your daleks in a cool dry safe place (do not refrigerate) until time to assemble your cake.
