Coolest Wall E Birthday Cake
My son’s name is Walter (Walt for short) and he was born right when this movie came out so what better theme for his 1st birthday then the Wall-E theme.
I made this Wall E Birthday Cake using 4 – 2×8 square cakes. I stacked three of the cakes and cut the 4th diagonally and trimmed to make the tracks. I made buttercream icing and just tinted it until it looked like the picture I was following. I just gently spread a darker orange in areas to create the rust spots.
The neck I made out of toilet paper rolls that I taped together and covered in tin foil. The head was made out of Styrofoam and the hands I used flat wood spatulas and just covered them with tin foil.
I used Oreo’s and pieces of black licorice to make the tracks and jelly beans to make the control panel. I was going to use fondant to make the Wall-E letters (or in this case Walt-E) but I’ve never worked with it and don’t really like it for taste or anything so I decided to use chocolate. It looked and tasted great!!
It was really only my second attempt at a 3D cake and I think that it turned out pretty good.
