    Attach 1, 1.5" cake to a cake board with buttercream.

    Divide layer into 3 sections and remove the center section.

    Carve out 2, 1/4" channels in the tan cake pop mixture and shape the gaps to be rectangle.

    Fill in the rectangle voids with black cake pop mixture.


    Repeat creation of tan rectangle cake pop mixture and removal of 2 rectangle voids beside the cake.

    Turn the tan rectangle piece upside down, and place on top of the other tan piece (which is on the cake), lining up the eyes (black strips).

    Fill either side of the tan pieces with blue cake.


    Form another rectangle piece to fit on top of the tan piece, with red cake pop mixture.

    From the middle of the red rectangle, remove a half circle strip of cake pop mixture.

    Fill that in with white cake pop mixture.


    Form a rounded rectangle out of red cake pop again and remove a half circle strip from the bottom of the arch (flat section).

    Turn arch over so removed section is facing down.

    Using a small circle cutter, remove 2 strips of red cake pop from the top of the arch.

    Fill all 3 removed areas with white cake pop filling and line the entire piece up with the other half circle of white cake pop.

    Fill either side of the red pieces with blue cake.


    Place remaining 1.5" cake layer on top, securing with buttercream.

    Cover the cake in yellow buttercream, keeping the sides straight and flat.

    Smooth icing with a hot spatula.


    Roll out yellow and white fondant.

    From the white fondant, cut out 4 question marks.

    From the yellow fondant, cut out 16 3/4" circles.

    Attach the circles and question marks with water (if needed) to the buttercream.

    Slice and serve cake when desired.

    Cake should be kept in a sealed container in the fridge and consumed within 2-3 days.
