Rainbow Brite could have used a little work, but my 80’s themed Dirty 30 Birthday Cake was a big hit. We’ve got three different cakes going on here. The bottom was a chocolate cake with a Nutella buttercream. The middle was strawberry short-cake, and the top tier was a rainbow assortment with some vanilla frosting in between.
A perfectly colorful, fun, eye-catching cake to go with an equally fun Birthday Girl!
Wait, what?!?!?! An 80’s cake? With 80’s cartoons??? On the same cake???
Have I died and gone to heaven?
My first initial thought was, “Oh, how cool!!” Then I realized it would only be feeding about 15-20 people so a huge cake wouldn’t be necessary. One would think making a smaller cake is easier, but remember that the cake is my canvas, so giving me a smaller canvas to work on means having less space to decorate. With that being said, how do I get Jem AND the Thundercats all on the same cake without making it look like a clash that never should have been?
I guess, like this:
This is a quarter sheet cake with mini-chocolate chips along the sides. It’s death by chocolate: chocolate cake, chocolate frosting, and mini-chocolate chips.
Trying to fit 2 huge 80’s icons on 1 small cake is no easy task, but the customer is always right…..most of the time!
