Sunday Sweets Visits the 80s

Sunday, February 22, 2009

Sunday Sweets is my weekly NON-Wrecks feature, the better to show how wrecky the Wrecks really are.

I grew up in the 80s, so I have a bit of a soft spot for the music, the movies, and the retina-searing color combinations of that decade. I also make funny squealing noises when I see references to nearly-forgotten loves like the Wuzzles or that Hugga Bunch made-for-TV movie. (Hey, even geek girls were girly girls at age 6, right?)

All that to say, here are some fun 80s-inspired Sweets for y'all.

Remember these guys?

Sing it with me, Carrie G.: "Gummi Beeeaars! Bouncing here and there and EV'rywhere..."


This next one combines 3 great 80s icons: the Rubik's cube, Super Mario, and the oh-so-popular Garbage Pail Kids. (I had a whole album of those cards growing up. I'm guessing a little after the Hugga Bunch phase.)

Marylse found this on Jessica Claire's photography site (which you should check out to see pics of the raddest 80's prom-themed shower ever) and it was made by Sweet Gems Custom Cakes.

And I know Wheel of Fortune is still on the air, but since I had a Vanna White t-shirt in 4th grade it will always be 80s to me.

Sara D., would you like to buy a vowel?
(Note: sorry, I've once again lost track of the original e-mail link, so if you know who made this, please let me know so I can credit the baker!)

And lastly, Karen C. found a cake that really takes me back...

Love it love it love it. And I still have a crush on Michael J. Fox. [wistful sigh]

Ok, this was just too much fun to stop the 80s theme now. That's right, you heard me: the e-mail lines are NOW open, folks, so go forth and find me 80s Sweets! I'm talking the cartoons (Snorks, anyone?) the games, the toys (Slinky, My Little Pony, Cabbage Patch - you get the idea), the movies (GhostBUSTERS!), and yes even the music (I know there's a Thriller cake out there somewhere). Send your finds to Sunday Sweets [at] Cake Wrecks [dot] com.

And if you find all these blasts from the past just as fun as I do, you should check out the sticker section on Branded in the 80s. Anyone else remember Poochie the dog? Anyone?
gorgon said...

Ahhhh...the 80's

Sarah said...

Gummi Bears!! That was the best cartoon EVER! I can't believe I've forgotten them until now.

Though, I was just a wee little thing in the 80's... I missed half the decade.

Sweet cakes, Jen!

jen bryner said...

YES, YES, YES!!! i soooo remember all of those things! not only were the cakes awesome for today, but it was great to remember all the great 80s icons:) and, um, i used to have that hugga-bunch movie taped (yep, on a VHS TAPE) and i would watch it every day...and i'll also admit i instantly started singing the gummi bears theme song when i saw that cake!!! thanks for the memories:)

Kimmy said...

Oh my, DeLorean and Wheel of Fortune love.

Holly said...

Jen, I totally remember Poochie! I had a Poochie stamp ... -loved- her!

DangGina said...

The Gummi Bears one is my fav. I mean, they're all pretty much rad, but...I dunno, I've got a soft spot in my heart for those bouncing bears...

Julie said...

I loved Poochie the dog. One of my most vivid childhood memories was getting in trouble for putting Poochie stickers on the fridge. I still claim it was an improvement.

Angie said...

80's!!!!

Meg said...

I totally remember Poochie!!!

DESJ and Company said...

Poochie!!!
OMG I loooooved her.
I used to bring mine to school. ALong with my tape player to play music.

Leslie said...

I was a kid in the 80's, too. And I loved Gummi Bears, but couldn't remember their name until I scrolled to the beginning of the song. As soon as I read the first line, I could sing the whole theme song! I'm sure I'll really annoy my children today :)
Beautiful cakes, of course!

Zhoen said...

The Wheel of Fortune cake is a very pleasing design. Who'd'a thunk?

A. said...

Heh, I totally had a Poochie doll! Now that sticker page is making me wonder where my sticker book from the 80s is.

utaduta said...

i loved gummy bears! these cakes are great! its so my childhood to!

Duckabeees said...

Oh my goodness, I am so glad that there is someone else out there that remembers the hugga bunch kids! Anytime I ask someone about them they look at me as if I were insane. Also, I totally want that gummi bears cake for my 30th birthday!

anisaerah said...

I remember Poochie! I had this stamp set that I ruined by adding water.

Anonymous said...

Haha, the '80s sound awesome. xD I missed them by a long shot though, I'm only 15. xD Your blog is hilarious. Seriously my FAVORITE blog out there. I come here everyday and leave in stitches. xD

My favorite is the Super Mario one. 8D
And whoot, first post I think. xD

Melanie said...

Ohhh yay!!! I swear I'm the only one that remember that made for TV Hugga Bunch movie!! Ahhh such fond memories of quality cartoons!

falcon boy said...

yay 80s1

Kristen said...

Oh, wow. My Hugga Bunch birthday cake pales in comparison to these! But this is a great trip to my childhood. :)

DNfromMN said...

I was singing the gummi bears song the instant I saw those little guys. I think that most be the most earworm of a theme song ever.

Here's a yoda cupcake cake: http://www.craphound.com/images/2415118930_e9127da837.jpg

Teri said...

Don't forget Punky Brewster & the Popples! Now I'm on a mission...

Linda said...

That Gummi Bear cake has made my day :D

Mella said...

Born in 1981
I only know the German Gummi Bear theme song and now I'm going to look for it on YT

knitwit said...

Oh my god!! Thank you for the awesome trip down memory lane. It may be the thing that gets me through this last bit of winter. I'm now tempted to write a post about the 80's and if I do, I'll link to your blog. You do some mighty awesome work here!

OutbackJon said...

Funny, I just passed a DeLorean while driving my daughter to work this morning. I was missing the Back to the Future extras, though.

Nessa said...

I remember Poochie.

Also, the Hugga Bunch movie scared me half to death.

linz said...

"Sing it with me, Carrie G.: "Gummi Beeeaars! Bouncing here and there and EV'rywhere...""

... was singin' it in my head the moment i saw the picture, before i even got to your text!

*memorieeeeeees*

Mrs. Comet Hunter said...

LOL! Wow - that really took me back! Now I have the Gummi Bears theme song in my head.

Who remembers: Jem and the Holograms (vs. the Misfits of course!), Rainbow Bright, or Popples?

liliana said...

i named my dog Poochie! she was a very sweet doberman. :P

Erin said...

Ah Love it!! Gummi bears were awesome. And I still know the song.

Kamity said...

Even though Michael J Fox is the same age as my mom (augh! I am so young!) ... *I* have a crush on him and was born on his birthday.

barelyknittogether.com said...

Awww - I was so sure we were the same age! But now I see you are a mere youngster. I was too old to collect Garbage Pail Kids cards, and I don't recognize the Gummi Bear things. I was too busy listening to Quiet Riot to pay attention to such kitschy-ness :) But the Rubik's cube - now that rocks.

barelyknittogether.com said...

And also,you know what would be *really* totally awesome? A Kroft Super Stars themed cake. H.R. Puff'n'Stuff anyone? The Bugaloos? Fun!

Sandi said...

OMG yes Poochie. I never had one, but my friend did. But, because of her we still call pig tails "poo-chie chies" after her rad pink ears.

Jessica said...

Ohhhhh my gawd! I simply must have the DeLorean cake. I watch the Back to the Future movies all the time - my 5 yr old is hooked on them now too.

Jenni said...

I STILL have my little stuffed Poochie puppy! She's kind of old and my 8 year old daughter plays with her now. It cracks me up that My Little Ponies, Cabbage Patch Kids and Rainbow Brite are all becoming popular again. They were HUGE 20 years ago when I was my daughter's age.

Buffy said...

@Mrs.Comet--omg! There should totally be a Rainbow Brite cake!!

These are so awesome. Makes me feel like a kid again. *love* the DeLorean. "Great Scott!!"

Erin said...

I am so in love with these cakes! And I absolutely love the link to the 80's Prom Baby Shower!!! WOW! Fantastic!

Claire said...

I believe this is my favorite Cake Wrecks post to date. '80s-tastic!
Have you heard of fast-rewind.com? Speaking of the '80s.

Deanne said...

Gummi Bears!!! I remember them!! They would bounce off the trees - too cute!

Tankersley Family said...

OMG I totally remember Poochie!! Actually as a child I insisted on being called Poochie at all times!!! These were great cakes BTW!!

Viktoria said...

umm... how can anyone not just be in love with michael j. fox?

and yeah, the delorean-cake is not that bad either..... what am I saying, it's freakin' "rock'n'roll" !!

we still have the pink poochie ears my sister wore for halloween when she was 4... (she is 31 now)

i LOVED poochie when i was in first grade!!! my mom would randomly put little poochie stamps/stickers/goodies in my lunchbox. (ah, memories!)

also, i'm totally on board with you regarding michael j fox : D such a cutie! (always was and always will be!)

Kim B said...

Holy moly, I freaking LOVE Gummi Bears!!! I'm so impressed that there are other people out there who remember them! And the Wuzzles, come ON! I totally have a ButterBear stuffed animal!!!

Half Assed Kitchen said...

Where are the Smurfs? Bring on the Smurfs! And Strawberry Shortcake.

YES! Punky Brewster! And the Popples!!

did you see these cakes?

Camille said...

I just dig that Wheel of Fortune cake.

tarajackson said...

I'm so glad someone else remembers the Wuzzles!!! "We're the Wuzzles...oh oh yeah!" :)

Okay...my moment is over. Carry on.

tarajackson said...

OH wait!! AND the Popples!! http://www.popplespopp.com/

If someone can make a Popples & Wuzzles cake, they would be the most awesome cake baker ever. :)

Carmen said...

I used to get up early with my brother to watch Gummi Bears. And I had a little stuffed Poochie dog. :)

dani said...

i thought they were Cabbage PATCH kids??

KELmomRN2b said...

I'm a child of the 80's and have never heard of the Wuzzles or Hugga Bunch! Maybe it was for really little kids in the 80's? I was 11/12 in 1980.

Scritzy said...

The '80s ... a very good decade for me, since that's when I met and married spouse!

My favorite is the Rubik's cube.

Eighties cakes I would like to see: MTV logo (back when it really DID mean Music Television); Weather Channel cake (when Jim Cantore, who is one of my great loves, still had hair); and a SINISTAR cake, since that is my all-time favorite video game!

BigMomma said...

Best Sunday sweets ever! I am an 80's lover as well and had a lovely trip down memory lane as I followed your link to the huggabunch movie (Yes I am over 25 and just spent an hour watching the huggabunch made for tv movie!)

Your Awesome!

Kari said...

A couple of summers ago I was in Romania visiting a friend's family, and had my back to the TV, which was on and tuned to a Hungarian station. I jumped about a foot when I heard a familiar theme song, and turned around in disbelief to see... Gummi Bears, in Hungarian.

Totally awesome. :-D

k8lynr said...

although i wasn't technically an 80's kid, i was conceived in the 80's, and i was a HUGE fan of the gummi bears. i've asked countless people if they remember them, yet none do.

so today this made me super happy. i know now i'm not completely insane.

Not only do I remember Poochie the dog, I still have Poochie the dog.

MommyAmy said...

I'm thinkin' we need some Smurf wrecks. :)

Anonymous said...

Wuzzles and Popples, oh yeah. They somehow managed to bring back the Care Bears, I notice, but you never see a Wuzzle anywhere (except on pictures of my kids' Halloween costumes, 1986.)

vmdesign said...

Can I request someone make a GlowWorm cake??? My granny still has my green one in her closet full of toys :)

Amy said...

SWEET! Love the 80s! LOL

msyendor said...

bareknittingtogether ...

Oh, thanks. Now I got 'One banana, two banana, three banana, four ...' stuck in the soundtrack to be followed the next half hour with 'H.R. Puffinstuff -- he's your friend when things get rough.' Yep. 'Can't get a little, can't get enought!'

Love the Rubik & Mario. Neat cards -- edible ink on white chocolate?

amroyo said...

Jen- I love you for mentioning Poochie. I have a collection of over 200 Poochie items from all over the world.

I have my original puppy my Mom gave me when I was 4 (she also made me a fabulous Poochie cake). Then I've added to my collection books, stampers, tape players, radios, tea sets (plastic and ceramic), halloween costumes, hair accessories, note pads, pencils, figurines, puppets, bath towels and even an original animation cell from the cartoon.

She's my obsession and one day I am going to put together a website for her.

If anyone wants to share a Poochie story (or has questions about her) email me at amrose _ you (at)yahoo dot com

Kat said...

That was such a fun flashback! These cakes were so awesome.

And I will readily admit to spontaneously bursting forth with the Gummi Bears theme song at random times. (Just ask my husband...)

Hey- if you are into more 80's flashbacks, I am currently featuring an awesome collection of 80's tunes on my blog-
kreatingsmiles.blogspot.com

Maya said...

The 80's had the REAL Wheel of Fortune - back when people still got to go shopping on set with the cash they'd won. They almost always had to use up the last bit with one of those horrid porcelain dalmatian sculptures...

Ashley said...

I made a pretty rad Ghostbusters cake for my brother's most recent birthday, but I don't think it really qualifies as a sunday sweet ^_^;

Verification Word: panti. *snark*

Nikoli said...

"You made a birthday cake out of DeLorean!?"

Awesome. Simply awesome.

Ryan said...

I still remember EVERY WORD to the Gummie Bears theme song. The 80's...what a riot.

And I think I'm going to request the Wheel of Fortune cake for my next birthday.

~Anne said...

Dying to see the technical skills required to make a Slinky cake...

Jem and the Holograms....truly, truly, truly outrageous!

lacy said...

Poochie! I remember Poochie. In fact, my mom nicknamed my little sister Poochie because she randomly found a videotape of a Poochie episode and watched until the tape wore out. My sister is twenty years old now, and Mom still calls her Poochie.

Layla said...

I LOVED Poochie!!! I had a little stamp of here, her paw prints were flowers!!! Awwwwwww.....

thefunctionalweirdo said...

I NEED a Delorian cake. And of course I remember the Poochie dolls, I had one. Along with some sort of giant plastic/rubber Poochie-themed sheet with rubber sticker-like things that went on it. It had a very particular smell that I will never forget.

Which reminds me, I smelled something the other day that was a dead ringer for the Strawberry Shortcake doll. Sweet and plastic, oh baby.

NYCGirl said...

Ah, I heart the '80s. I actually pulled out my '80s-era sticker books a few weeks ago.

Heather said...

What an adorable blog! Someone commented about how much they liked your blog on my blog so I had to stop by!

Dawn's Recipes / The Baby Blog said...

Great, now I have the Wuzzles theme song stuck in my head. Hahaha! Man, I loved that show!

Ooh they got originality...living with a split personality!

Meagan said...

I adore the 80s extravaganza!

Those are some totally 'sweet' cakes.

StuffCooksWant said...

Sadly, I too, am too old to even know what Poochie is/was, BUT, the 80's to me are: polo shirts, Kaepa tennis shoes, Ralph Lauren jeans, M-TV (with actual music), Sony walkmans, very large car phones, Duran Duran. Oh My GOD, like, totally!

Love the DeLorean!

ehudwill said...

I still remember the Gummi Bears fondly. It was one of the great shows.

Feisty Irish Wench said...

I was driving to a friend's house one evening and actually saw a DeLorean being driven down the road. I couldn't get a picture of it because I was driving, and my 6 year old didn't have steady enough hands to take a picture with my cellphone either.

Danyel said...

Remember Poochie? But of course. I had a tea set and a stamper. You pushed on her head, her ears would go up and a stamp on her bottom hit your paper. Loved her!

PS..So glad I'm not the only one who remembers the Hugga Bunch movie. People always look at me like I'm crazy when I bring it up.

Zombie Edward said...

I was listening to Lita Ford and Ozzy Osbourn while looking at this. total 80's over here! I love the Delorian cake.

threekidchaos said...

I was so excited to see the Gummi Bears cake! When hubby & I were in Vietnam 2 years ago, Gummi Bears was on every morning during breakfast. Ahh, the memories. The first day trying to remember why we knew the show & then timing our breakfast each day to catch the latest episode. Good times...

chrystal said...

I googled "thriller cake" and here is what I found- http://flickr.com/photos/acapturedmoment/2256426721/

These cakes are all kinds of awesome!

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh! I almost stopped breathing when I saw the Gummi Bear cake! I want one! I want one! The Gummi Bears was our favorite show when we were kids! It was actually just released on DVD, and we definitely got three copies in my family this Christmas...

By the way, I've been following this blog almost since it started, and I absolutely adore it, but this is the first time I've commented - yay '80s! :)

Brandon & Aimee said...

I remember Poochie! Her pink sunglasses were AWESOME! The Hugga Bunch movie was great, I wanted to go through the mirror. Gummi Bears rock, we still sing that song. Thanks for the nostalgia!!

Jaime said...

I had poochie shrinky-dinks and yes a stamper as well.

Does anyone else remember the monchichis?

pound puppies/purries?

Good times.

Brandy said...

You want 80's? Icanhascheezburger has a new user submission site: http://onceuponawin.com/

All the nostalgia for you kids of the 80's!

Liv said...

I used to love watching Gummi Bears!! :) I have to admit that I started singing the theme song straight away!! :) [I should say that I was born in the mid-eighties, but I love 80s-themed stuff!!]

I also remember Poochie a little bit...I still have my Poochie toy!! Talk about vintage!! LOL :)

aris-tgd said...

Oh, the 80s! I remember my mom made me a Popple cake for my birthday one year. It was really impressive, at least to me at the time!

This just makes me think of a great music video mashup of 80s teen movies... let me dig it out...

Oh, the 80s. How we sort of miss you. And your hair.

Rubix cubes are so not over--my sixth grade students are obsessed with them! There are always at least five floating around on a given day.

Utahime Lorelei said...

They're so cute!

My childhood's never looked so sweet before.

Nicole said...

HUGGABUNCH! Oh god, I have such a love/hate relationship with that movie. I absolutely LOVED it, up until I had my first ever (remembered, at least) nightmare because of it. I had a dream that I was pulled through the mirror into nothingness and woke up terrified lol. Ah, the mind of a child... hehe.

80's KIDS, UNITE! :D

Kati McCauley said...

OH. MY. GOSH! I didn't know other people remembered Hugga Bunch! I made my friends watch that at every slumber party until I was 13 (shortly after which my brother taped over it). We thought it was hilarious.

Budgyrl said...

AH, the memories! Am I the only one, who after watching the Hugga Bunch movie, stood in front of the mirror, hugging the crap out of my hugga bunch doll and pressing the mirror, just in case it really worked? I can't be the only one!

Those cakes are totally rad for sure!

mhb said...

You just made my morning with the Gummy Bear cake. When I was a kid and had to have my tonsils removed, I got a Gummy Bear teddy bear as a gift for being "brave". One of my favorite things ever.

And the DeLorean is awesome!! Does it have its own frosting flux capacitor?

Christie, Jeff and Kennedy said...

it's funny that you mention Poochie....I just got my daughter a Poochie book at a book swap! No one else remembered her!!!

Melissa said...

OMG! I had a Poochie knit hat! Loved that dog!

Cathie said...

Oh! Oh! I'm SO GLAD I'm not the only one who remembers the Hugga Bunch movie. Just this past Tuesday, I was trying to describe it (and the dolls) to some friends, and they looked at me like I was crazy. Oh, the validation.

miss k said...

of course i remember poochie, but the question is, does anyone remember foofur? i had a stuffed foofur when i was a kid and that thing went EVERYWHERE with me. sadly, no one ever seems to remember him...

Julie said...

This is great! I collected Garbage Pail Kids stickers, too, and had a crush on MJF (they filled part of part 3 in my hometown, and part of that by my junior high, so I'd always peer out the bus window to catch a peek). I hope someone sends in a Dungeons and Dragons cake, complete with a giant Tiamat!

holly said...

Hmmm. I've got a friend whose got an actual DeLorean in his driveway. I'd love to get him that cake!

ladycrim said...

LOL, I had that Hugga Bunch special on video! I watched it much more than I'm comfortable admitting ...

Meanwhile, now I need to finally make the Pac-Man cake installation I keep meaning to do ...

Katie said...

Hugga Bunch!! My mom actually got me the DVD last year for Christmas. The 80's were a wonderful time!

Hannah said...

Those cakes are great but where are the "My Little Pony" cakes? Surely there must be some out there!:)

Jessie said...

Okay, you said Hugga Bunch movie. I love you. No one ever remembers tat movie! Do you remember when I think it was Taco Bell was giving out the little dolls? My older cousins all collected them for me.

And Gummi Bears! I just bought those DVDs late last year.

Becky said...

OMG thank you SO MUCH for that link to the Hugga Bunch movie! I used to watch that movie everyday (my dad taped it for me off tv). A few years ago, I tore my parents' house up looking for the VHS, but had no success. It's just as good as I remember it LOL
I loved this week's Sunday Sweets! Really takes me back...

Becca said...

I can't believe someone, besides me, remembers Poochie the Dog. Not to mention the Hugga Bunch movie with those weird apricot things. How about Popples???

Ryan said...

And through an ironic reversal, the Gummi Bears cake was just the result of a misunderstanding when the customer, completely unaware of the cartoon show, asked for gummi bear candies on top of the cake.

beth said...

Hey, I know this isn't cake related, but check out my website of really lame 1980's young adult book covers, whee!

Jess said...

I LOVED the Gummi Bears. It was one of my all time favorites! *sings* "Gummi Bears, bouncin' hear and there and everywhere. High adventure that's beyond compare. They are the Gummi Bears."

Covering Cairo said...

I have a poochie stamper - with her oh-so-sassy sunglasses perched atop her pink ears!

Anonymous said...

You know, the Wheel of Fortune one is really clever, because you have all your slices sectioned out already. You can just cut out every slice perfectly. Now if only other cakes could pull that off sans the WoF theme...

Lynn said...

I still remember all the words to the Gummy Bears show theme song...nice to see cakes that are done well and remind us of our happy pasts !

thank you for posting the link Branded in the 80's. It brought me way back to childhood and I realized, I have a LOT of those same stickers! I cant wait to get home and look at my collection again! That was sure fun!

Kim said...

OMG, I have been trying to figure out for YEARS what the memory of a live-action kids movie with an evil witch and a glass done was, and your Hugga Bunch link is IT! Never thought I would ever figure it out, let alone from a site about cakes. Heh! Thank you!!

daniellehodgson said...

Oh my gosh! I have literally been trying to remember for a decade the name of that movie and those dolls...hugga bunch! Thank you!!

Donna said...

YES! to H R Puf'n'Stuf and the Bugaloos! I sooo had a crush on the guy "Jimmy" from HR, Davey Jones, a young Scott Baio AND Michael J. Fox. Something about those, cute, short, dark-haired guys I guess.

The era of Sid & Marty Krofft was a kids wonderland!

Kristen said...

What a nice trip down memory lane~ I especially LOVE the DeLorean cake! I spazzed when I first saw it!

Michelle said...

I love love love the Garbage Pail Kid with the Flock of Seagulls Hair-do!

Beth said...

I had a Rainbow Brite cake when I was a kid. My mom gave them a picture to draw it from, and when we got the cake, they'd given the cake Rainbow Brite a mustache.

Kelli said...

I can't believe that you mentioned Hugga Bunch. I have this movie to this day (no I don't watch it, but I have it). I never realized it was at all popular.

CurlyfrySC's Collage said...

oh wow! I'm old...

*~Stardustings~* said...

Decent cakes, yes!

And Poochie!! I knew her well! She had "flower-power" pawpads shaped like daisies, right? And she was a little girl's pet, BUT SECRETLY an advice columnist for a magazine.

Anonymous said...

I still have a Poochie record! One of those mini records with a book to read along... It's called "Dear Poochie" I think. haha Good memories!

I beg to differ, but the Gummi Bears was definitely 90's!

The Wheel Of Fortune cake is mine, you have had some of my best and worst on here.www.charleyandthecakefactory.com. I am a military wife and have only been making cakes out of my home for three years. This one was for a gentlemen in Camp Pendleton CA who was on the show during Armed Forces week.

I MUST have the DeLorean cake at my next birthday.

I love the 80s! I'm an 80s child and have the birthday cakes to prove it-all proudly made by my mom.

Most were made using Wilton pans but she DID freehand a phenomenal She-Ra cake for me for my 7th birthday...I must find a picture of it!

Was Wheel of Fortune really around in the 80's in the US?
