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!
PinkZiab....thank you for the compliments on my cake AND my little girl.
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!
It is a 12x18 cake and it is covered in buttercream.
I must say I'm extra impressed now - the finish looks too smooth to be buttercream!
AHi I was wondering can i get the recipe of the cake before Thursday
