My son wanted a Wall-e Party for his 3rd Birthday. So, I made my son a giant WALL-E Cake and Eve Cake Pops (he calls her Eva) so we called them Eva Pops!
For the WALL-E Cake;
I used 6 boxes of cake mix (2 boxes of mix for each pan) (11×15 cake pans). Make 3 – 11×15 cakes. Cut all 3 in half. Stack 5 layers on top of each other. Use the 6th half to cut out the “wheels” (triangular shaped) for each side.) Crumb coat and refrigerate.
Then, I did not want to use fondant (it tastes bad) So I decided to use buttercream. Color it darker yellow and the wheels are brown with black licorice as the “tracks” on the wheels. I tinted fondant grey for the chest strip. And I piped on the detailing.
The head, neck, and arms are florist foam wrapped in black fondant. Pipe on detailing of eyes. Stabilize head, neck and arms with wooden dowels. I used brown sugar and crushed Oreos as “dirt” all over the wheels and base.
For the EVA POPS;
I used 1 box of cake mix to make 20 Eva Pops.
Bake cake mix – let cool, then totally crumble the whole cake up in a big bowl! Pour in 1 can of frosting and mix together very well. Set bowl in fridge to cool more (20 minutes). Take bowl out and use hands to shape up EVA shaped cake forms.
Insert sticks, lay on cookie sheet, cover, place in freezer (15 minutes) ( I had to use 3 cookie sheets). Melt white chocolate in skinny but deep bowl. Insert sticks into the Eva’s and dip into melted chocolate. Push Eva pops into a foam base for drying. Once dry lay back on cookie sheet, cover and freeze again.
Then paint on black faces with blue eyes. Let dry. Cover with plastic candy wrapper bags and keep refrigerated until party time. Use a new foam block to display Eva Pops on the party table! Eva Pops were a big hit!
