80s Cake

by Donna M Windham
(Dothan )

Oh this 80s cake was fun and everything is edible except the Rubik's cube (we wanted her to have that to play with) and the stars stuck in the cake!

I made this cake in two 9" round pans and in 2 mini loaf pans. Everything is iced in buttercream icing.

White, golden yellow, royal blue, black, leaf green, really red and spongebob blue Wilton color gels were used to color the icing.

The idea was to have things that represented the 80's - PacMan, MTV, a "Boom" Box, the Smurfs, cheerleading (she was a cheer captain), Roller Skates and of course all the bright and funky colors.

The cake was actually a French vanilla box cake that I added vanilla pudding to in order to make it a little denser. The icing was basic buttercream. I started by icing the entire cake in white. I then blocked the cake of into 4 different sections on the sides.

PacMan: I iced this block with black for the background and then used #4 tip with white icing to create the game screen. I then added the ghost, cherries, and of course PacMan with a #2 tip.

The Smurfs: I iced this block with golden yellow and used a #16 star tip for the hat, pants, eyes and mouth. I used the #1 tip to outline the body and face and colored it in with an angled spatula in spongebob blue. I added the grass and heart with a #3 tip.

I used the #16 star tip to create the roller skate in white on a orange background (can't be seen in picture). I then wrote "Speed Skating" in green around the skate.

The Cheer Block: I iced this block in green, and used the #3 tip to draw pom poms and a megaphone in white, pink and blue. I added her school's football team's name (Tigers).

The Boom Box on top was made from Vanilla cake baked in 2 mini loaf pans. I "glued" the two loaves together with buttercream icing and then iced the entire box with royal blue. I added the white background for the tuner and then decorated with black, white and red for the knobs, volume, tuner and tape deck.

I then drew the MTV logo (old style) and added the real Rubik's cube on top. I bordered the cake with green, pink, orange and yellow to represent the funkiness that was the 80's!

This 80s cake was fun and brought back a lot of memories for the birthday girl (and for me too)!

Flawless cake. That is all I need to say in regards to this cake. Since, much else I say will just decimate the excellence of this cake.

Unsurprisingly the equation is given only a modest revamp on this aptly-titled single, "Here’s to Never Growing Up".
