I've made some unique cakes over the years. For holding its shape, and being structurally sound enough to travel, use a sponge cake recipe, or shortbread recipe, but cook it in a square cake pan. You can carve the Tardis shape with a simple electric knife. The frosting that will hold is fondant. You can change the color of the fondant by folding in paste food coloring. Keep some of the fondant set aside as white, to roll into thin strips to use as windows. Dark fondant squares would be used for to represent a dark interior, with the white fondant used to frame the window. The same would be used for the door. Use a little molten sugar to glue the fondant window frame and door frame in place. Yes, you will have to use dowels, or bamboo skewers to hold the cake layers together, maybe with a bit of the molten sugar to aid the process. You can do this. Just don't stack the cakes any more that 4 cakes tall.

You mentioned modeling chocolate. I haven't worked with it, but it does look like intriguing stuff to work with. I hope you have great success with your cake. You will need some way to keep it upright as you travel. Again, I hope it turns out wonderful for you.

Well, I decided to buy the flying, spinning Tardis (3-3/4 inch, action figure sizish) and make a mad hatter type cake. I made one of those for the oldest GDs B-day several years ago and we iced it with neon pink, green, purple, blue, and then decorated with fondant cut-outs of different types of animal fur prints. I'm going to ice it gray, brush silver luster dust on it, will probably use a wet application, and then try to dry brush swirls of pink, blue, purple luster dust to create a vortex looking effect, though may have to end up with a wet application with that as well, we'll see.
