We absolutely love creating fun cakes with a great theme like this fabulous vintage record player cake that we made to order recently. We were asked to make an Arctic Monkeys themed cake and we pitched the idea of a playful (no pun intended) vintage record player design!
The cake itself was our popular Cookies ‘n’ Cream flavour – soft chocolate cake sandwiched with Madagascan vanilla and Oreo crumble infused buttercream, crumb coated in silky Madagascan vanilla buttercream and iced with coloured marshmallow fondant!
To decorate we iced the cake before panelling it with bright blue marshmallow fondant pieces. Then all edible decorations were added such as the hand-painted retro style ‘Arctic’ logo badge, golden volume knobs, speaker section, fake vinyl record and wood effect needle.
The edible record was created using hand tinted fondant etched with random concentric circles before a white circular layer of fondant was placed on top as the record label or sticker. This was then hand painted with a requested band and song!
The custom hand-painted vintage inspired badge on the front of the cake was a fun idea. We picked out several retro fonts and typography samples before settling upon one with a slight upward movement. It was then hand painted onto a fondant piece using edible gold paint.
This vintage record player cake was great fun to create. Adding a few extra touches such as the reto logo and the dark wood effect needle helped make this cake have an extra vintage look and feel to it!
