Wall-E Cupcake in a Cup Milkshake
This month’s Fandom Foodies theme is Dystopia, According to the dictionary, dystopia is “an imaginary place where people lead dehumanized and often fearful lives”. When I searched for dystopian movies, things like Blade Runner, Hunger Games, Maze Runner and many others show up. One that I know well as it’s a favorite of my kids was Wall-E. I decided to make the celebration Cupcake in a Cup inspired by Wall-E.
Wall-E is a Disney/Pixar animated film that focuses on the unhappy future of Earth. Earth has been abandoned to be cleaned up as it’s not habitable in it’s current state. The idea is that the humans can return when the clean up is done and Earth can be lived on again. I don’t want to spoil the movie for those who haven’t seen it. It’s not your typical Disney/Pixar movie, but it is interesting and fun, there is adventure and romance, and hope. It’s scary to think how we are all hurting our home, Earth, and maybe this movie will help us all be more conscious of the damage we are doing, and try to improve the future.
On the Axiom, where some of the humans live, all their food is in a cup. We join the crew and passengers of the Axiom on the Septuacentennial, the 700th anniversary on the Axiom. To celebrate, they have a Cupcake in a Cup. I thought making cake flavored ice cream would be fun. Disney’s Hollywood Studios’s had a limited time Birthday Cake Shake at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant and I decided to take inspiration from that milkshake. According to the Disney Parks Blog, “secret to this tasty shake is the addition of vanilla cake-flavored syrup used to make the shake”. I decided on Torani Red Velvet Cake Syryp.

I have never made ice cream with a syrup before but the result was really good. It definitely taste’s like cake! I plan to try other syrup flavors in ice cream in the future based on how well this one turned out. I encourage you to give it a try.
