Classic Space 30th Anniversary Cake

What birthday celebration is complete without a cake?

When I realised that the Brickish Association AGM fell just after our March celebration, and that several of the builders would be at the event, I knew that we needed a cake.  The only problem was I don't bake.  However, my mother does!

Picture the scene:

"Mum? Is it possible for you to make a jam-sponge birthday cake?"

"Yes... why?"

"Excellent! I'll tell them my idea and that you'll do it."


"I'll tell the spacey folk that I've had an awesome idea for a cake to take to the AGM, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Classic Space. There'll be about 60 people there."


"Oh and it's got to be blue with the Classic Space logo on it, a white spaceman and a red spaceman, and a bumble-bee stripe ribbon around the edge. Thanks, I'm sure it'll be perfect!"


Of course it all came together beautifully and here is the very cake by Hilary Dade, her "MOC" for the March celebration.

Classic Space Cake

The design of this MOC is completely studless and cleverly works around the lack of a trans-yellow solution, as well as incorporating the definitive bumble-bee stripes. The quality of the logos on the minifigures is amazing, there is no fading or yellowing at all.

Cutting the cakeJames and I  cut the cake on Saturday 4th April, and within about 20 minutes it was gone - not a single crumb was left!

You know, I really like MOCs that you can eat, or as Ed pointed out, that you are supposed to eat.

Thanks Mum! I promise I won't ask you to do anything like that again.

Not for a while, anyway.



Nom Nom Nom

I'd like to add that it was a very nice cake; I managed to acquire one of the larger, early corner slices & it was very, very yum. Please pass on my thanks to Hilary again :-)



I'd also like to add my thanks to Hilary, and hope she'll be bringing some of her future MOCs to Brickish events!
