Picture of Futurama Cake with Cake Pops!
The cake of the future! Or at least of Futurama.
I made this cake for a fan of the show Futurama. If you haven't heard of it yet....go look it up silly! It's entertaining.
This cake is based on a screen from the opening credits and also includes some of the main characters in the form of cake pops. And this Instructable will show you how it's done!

Step 1: Supplies!

Picture of Supplies!

You'll need:
2 9-inch Round Cakes
1 8-inch Square Cake (Though shape doesn't matter because this becomes cake pops!)
Icing (Enough for the layer, to cover the cake once, and for making the cake pops)
Rolled Fondant (Bought or Made!)
Chocolate Melts (Red, Purple, White, Yellow, Orange, Gray - If you can't find these colors you'll have to make your own as I did)
Food Coloring (Blue, Black, and whatever other color you might need depending on the melts you were able to find.)
Lollipop/Cake Pop Sticks

Something to put the cake on! Preferably a stand.
Rolling Pin
Something to stick the pops in while working on them. I used a bit of foam.
Food grade paint brushes
Paper Towels

Step 2: Cake!

Start by taking one of your 9-inch round cakes and placing it on your chosen stand.

Ice a nice, thick layer on top of it, then place the other 9-inch round cake on top.

Cover both the cakes in a coat of icing to seal it, then stick it in the fridge for the icing to harden a bit and hold its shape.

Step 3: Beginning Cake Pops!

While the cake is chilling, start making the character cake pops!

Grab your 3rd cake of whatever size, mine being the 8-inch square cake, and a bowl.

Break the cake into pieces then crumble it until it resembles bread crumbs.

Add about a 1/2 cup to 1 cup of frosting and mix well. You want a consistency of play-doh so that it holds its shape and doesn't fall apart.
