80’s Cake … You Will Be Mine


The joystick candle on top almost brings a tear to my eye. It is just wonderful. More photo at pieceofcaketricities’ photostream.

  1. The best part of this is definitely the joystick candle. It’s a thing of beauty.

    Slightly off-topic: I’ve always wanted to try making a cake like this!

    By the way, I’m going to add you to my blogroll. Nice site!

  2. I tried to make a 1980s cake last year and it was miserable failure. I just don’t have the exacto knife or baking skills needed to make it look right.

    I wound up just covering it with marshmallow frosting and 80s toys. Shameful. Thanks for the kind words about the site.

    You should bring back the Nostalgiathon. Great stuff. Consider yourself crosslinked.
