I have a request for a Dr. Who cake for the end of the month. They want me to make the phone booth.  I'm having trouble figuring out what size I would need to make to feed 15 people and what kind of frosting would be good to cover the cake. I was thinking fondant but I'm not sure how difficult it would be to cover this kind of cake and if the fondant would be to heavy. I wouldn't want the cake to collapse as they are trying to get it home.

3, 6 inch square cakes torted dowelled between each and stacked is the way I'd do it, with 5 inch boards separating the cakes and I'd use ganache. The servings would be generous here so is this for family or are you selling it?

It isn't going to collapse if its dowelled correctly so fondant would be fine and I'd panel it to emphasise the sharp corners of the tardis shape. Sounds like a fun project, I'm a hobby baker so it would be good if some of the pro's chimed in x

Personally, I would make a 'base cake' and put a fondant/gp 3d phone  booth on it.  

Going with stacking the 3 sqs having each layer on a cake board will give ease of cutting besides stability to the structure  - lots of extra servings.  Be sure to charge for ALL of those servings.  As cakebaby said panelling it would make covering much easier and probably look better overall.
