Wall-e Cake

This post originally appeared on my first blog, Amy's Cooking Adventures, in January 2011.

I made this cake 2 years ago for my older son's 3rd birthday.

At the time, he watched the movie Wall-e nearly everyday so I knew he'd love a Wall-e themed cake.

Super Moist Doctored Cake Mix {Dairy Free}

1 package of cake mix (any flavor)
            Eggs, oil, and water as indicated on the cake mix

Additionally, add

1 cup all purpose flour
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup canola oil
2/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease the pans you plan to use (I used two 9-inch pans and they were full)

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer.  Blend on low until ingredients are combined, about one minute.  Scrape the side of the bowl and beat on medium for 2 minutes.  Pour batter into the prepared pans.

Bake at 325 for 30-35 minutes.  If needed, continue baking at 5 minutes increments until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Cool the cakes on wire racks in the pans for 10 minutes.  Then run a knife along the edges of the pan and invert.  Cool the cakes completely.  Then decorate as desired with buttercream & MM Fondant.  

Yield: 6 ½ cup of batter or two full 9-inch pans.
