80s retro themed cake?? - cassette tape

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well I was recently asked to do a cake that looked like a cassette tape for a 13-year old who was having an 80s themed party. (Are the 80s really "retro"????? I don't think so!!!! Man, I must be getting old...) Anyway, I was sure I'd find tons of cakes that fit the theme here on CC, but to my surprise, I couldn't find anything like what they were wanting. I had to pretty much design it myself! This never happens....I am always inspired by SOMETHING from CC! I was a bit worried, but everything turned out okay in the end. The birthday girl was happy. I have it in my photos, but I'll attach a pic of the final product here too. She wanted the cake to have some of her favorite songs listed on it.



So if anyone else has a request for a cassette tape cake, maybe I can provide some inspiration. It was a fun cake to do.

That came out AWESOME.

Totally unrelated, but your avatar pic of (I'm assuming) your daughter is ADORABLE. She is just a precious little pixie!

<---wonders if anyone uses REAL ingredients anymore--sugar fruit nuts, cream, butter etc--instead of flavoring chemical cream from a bucket with pudding & jello and calling it "mousse"

Love your cake! Hope you don't mind that I'm using it for inspiration for an 80s themed cake I have in 2 weeks.
Can I ask how big this cake is, and did you cover it in fondant?
I have to do a full sized sheet cake (gulp!) and am wondering what to cover it on. I think fondant will be too heavy (it's a sponge) yet I don't have a fridge big enough for a buttercream covered cake.
Any suggestions woudl be greatly appreciated!

Thank you
I must say I'm extra impressed now - the finish looks too smooth to be buttercream! thumbs_up.gif
