Retro 80s Cakes

Last month, ran a post featuring several radical retro-inspired cakes. Here were three of my favorites:


Although you should not feed a Mogwai after midnight, I believe you are free to eat them any time of day or night.


I’m not sure what bugs me more; the fact that the Rubik’s Cube is unsolved, or the fact that one of the six sides is apparently pink. Still, a definite A for Effort here.


The sign of a truly awesome arcade-inspired cake? The fact that I can’t decide if I’d rather eat it or play it! I wish there were something else in this photo so I could gauge the scale of this cake, but regardless of size, whoever received this cake was one lucky adventurer!

If you like Etch-a-Sketches, Ghostbusters, and Indiana Jones, check out the entire post over at for even more awesome 80s-themed cakes!

    More than having a pink side or being unsolved, what should bother you most about the rubik’s cake is that it CAN’T be solved.
    Take a close look at that bottom corner, there are green squares on multiple sides of the same cube.
