If you want a fabulous custom cake from Pink Ribbon Bakery but you have no idea what theme you want, let me help you out a little bit! I have a list of themes that I’ve been keeping in my back pocket for quite some time now, and I would absolutely love the opportunity to use a few. Here are some of my DREAM CAKES… in no particular order:
Without a doubt, this was my favorite cartoon when I was a kid. I used to go to the movie store with my Grandpa and pick out 3 or 4 different Rainbow Brite VHS tapes. When we got back home I made him sit and watch them with me. Every single one! The cake I would make would be super colorful with rainbows and stars shooting off in every direction. I’d have Rainbow Brite sitting on the top tier and then Twink would be closer to the bottom tossing sparkly stars everywhere. I might even make this cake for my own birthday this year if no one orders it beforehand!
I’ve always wanted to make a cake of the Simpson’s sitting on their couch. I would want to add all the little details too. Homer would be holding a can of Duff, Bart would have his skateboard and a smartass look on his face, and Lisa would be rolling her eyes looking annoyed. I think this would be the perfect cake for a Simpson’s loving man.
-Charlie Brown (Peanuts)
I have two ideas for this theme. One would be to make Snoopy and Woodstock on top of the red dog house. Something about the simplicity of this cake is so appealing to me. I think this would be a great cake from one best friend to another. The other idea I have would be to make Lucy in her booth giving Charlie some 5 cent psychiatric help. I think this would be a cute little cake for a girlfriend to give her boyfriend.
-The Nightmare Before Christmas
If you know me then you know that I am a huge fan of all things Tim Burton. Especially anything to do with The Nightmare Before Christmas. My own Christmas tree wouldn’t be complete without my Jack Skellington ornaments every year. I would be thrilled to make any type of cake related to this movie but two characters that stand out most to me are Zero the dog and the Mayor of Halloweentown.
What cake artist doesn’t want to make a Muppets cake? Every idea around this theme is a good one. A Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog Valentine’s Day cake. A Beaker and Bunsen cake for the graduating scientist. A cute Gonzo and Fozzie baby shower cake. A Swedish Chef birthday cake for the chef in the family… the list goes on. I love them all!
Who remembers this cartoon? This was my “I need to run home after school so I don’t miss it” show. My brother and I can still sing every word to the opening theme song. I want to make a cake with Yakko, Wakko, and Dot sitting in front of the Warner Brothers Tower with Pinky and The Brain running around somewhere in the background.
Wow… after proofreading this post I realized that I still have a sick obsession with cartoons. All of the themes that I listed were favorite parts of my childhood and I guess I’ve chosen the best line of work to stay connected with them.
What are some of your favorite themes that you would want to see in cake form? I’d love to hear some of your ideas!
