The long and storied tradition of movie-themed birthday cakes begins when you’re young and someone hands you a cake featuring characters from your favorite animated movie. It usually ends as you approach adulthood, when cakes in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head are replaced with black forest, german chocolate, and peanut butter angel food (my personal favorite). But some people never get past that early stage of having movie-themed birthday cakes. Here are a lot of very diverse examples.
They should have put “Hunger” on the list.
I hope it’s not pea soup flavored.
Lord of the Rings
This cake is preeeeeecious.
Friday the 13th
Sure, it’s gory, but they did a really good job with this cake. Hats (or hockey masks) off to whoever made it.
The Dark Knight
I legitimately laughed for five minutes after seeing this. Whoever “Ben” is, he must have been a really good kid to deserve this cake.
Art house geeks have birthdays too.
Celebrate your birthday by chewing on Rocky Balboa’s junk! Technically, I think this is intended as a groom’s cake.
Notice the name on this impressive cake. It was actually made for Martin Scorsese’s birthday, and he enjoyed it. He’s even great at directing cake makers.
Back to the Future
Every bite is like a Huey Lewis soundtrack in your mouth.
If you get a minute, do a Google image search for “Chewbacca cake”. I could’ve made this list strictly from Chewbacca cakes. There are tons of them out there and they’re almost all funny. I chose this one because there’s something mildly disturbing about gnawing on the severed head of everyone’s favorite wookiee.
Whoever made this cake deserves a double high five.
The Human Centipede
I’ve blurred out the birthday boy’s name to protect the innocent. Also, I love that they’ve included pictures to illustrate how the “cake” was assembled.
La Dolce Vita
Art house geeks have birthdays, too… Part Two.
There is some impressive detail on this particular cake. They could have just stuffed the alien down into it and they still would’ve had the cake-bursting effect. But they also made it crumbly around the exit wound. That’s good stuff.
A Clockwork Orange
Clearly, best served with milk.
This cake comes with instructions. The only way it could be better is if there was a tiny plastic Daniel Simpson Day at the helm.
I’ll be back… for seconds.
The Seventh Seal
It’s like playing a game of chess with deliciousness. And Miller Lite, apparently.
I have no words for this.
If you ever “cross the streams” on my birthday cake, I will kick your ass.
