I made this cake 30th birthday cake for my cousin this past weekend. I was trying to think of a good way to highlight all the great times we’ve had growing up together. After all he’s always been more like a brother to me. I immediately thought back to our childhood and all the things we loved to do, so I decided to make him an 80s themed 30th birthday cake.
For Back to the Future (one of our favorite movies) I was able to find a “Back to the Future” font so I could write out the infamous “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads”. I then used my edible image printer to print it out along with the Ghosbusters logo. I had fun making the little PacMan and ghosts out of fondant.
We also loved listening to music and watching MTV (back in our day they actually played music videos on MTV). We were actually both a little scared of the Michael Jackson Thriller video, but loved it at the same time. The MTV logo and mix tape were handmade out of fondant. The supermario was made with an edible image, but the blocks and green pipe were cut out of fondant.
And of course there were all the awesome toys, like the Rubik’s cube and Etch-A-Sketch (made of fondant) or his TMNT and Thundercats action figures (edible image logos).
All in all it was a great birthday celebration, with some sentimental chocolate peanut butter cake to finish it off.
