Calling all 40 ish year olds- info/idea needed for pop culture cake :)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So—wish I was still 40 but… Alas Im not—and wow 6 years seems to really make a difference in what was popular while growing up- ha
 
Looking for ideas to add to a 40th bday cake- stuff that was popular growing up- from young—teens—kind of like a blast from the past cakes—
 
So far I have—aqua net hairspray, uno, nameplates, ankle bracelets, mtv, black band bracelets, slouch socks—rubix cube (??) magic 8 ball—
 
Do these ring true? Can anyone add anything?

Not sure about the Magic 8 Ball but you hit everything else on the head.  Lots of neon!!!!

Star Wars, Garbage Pail Kids, E.T., Michael Jackson.... Do a fingerless glove covered in Disco Dust!

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Here is a website that might help,

You can look up a lot of things for what every year you would like.   You can look up toys, music, movies fashion trends, all kinds of stuff.
