Back To The Future

It’s 2021. Welcome Back To The Future!

Time Train Cake


As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to celebrate the New Year by sharing two of my favorite Back To The Future Cakes.  I first shared this Time Train Cake in 2015.

This stunning cake was made by Art2Eat Cakes.  Heather made this awesome Back to the Future 3 Cake for the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Cake Collaboration.  This amazing cake recreates Doc Brown’s Time Train from Back To The Future 3.  The movie ends with it flying off and the words “The End?”.  I can’t decide which is more amazing the Time Train or that fact that it is starting to take off.

One thing I like about the Time Train is that it has a wonderful steampunk design.  I love the idea of something as massive as a train being a time machine.  I also really like the look of the train.  The black iron, the brass, and the red trim looks terrific.  Something I did not know until I started doing research for this post is that the visuals for the Time Train were inspired by the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  The train is even named the Jules Verne.

The cake board is terrific.  It looks like a train track on dirt.  I like how you can see the energy pushing the time train off the ground.


Back To The Future 3 Cake

Notice the flux capacitor on the front.  It is above the boiler and below the smoke stack.  Is is just me or does the front of the boiler look like a big hidden Mickey?

I like the fact that Heather included “The End?” from the closing credits.  Unfortunately, there were no further Back to the Future sequels.  There was a Back To The Future animated series, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an episode of it.  It lasted for 26 episodes and included live action sequences with Christopher Lloyd playing Doc Brown.

Notice that the train is labeled ELB? Doc Brown’s full name is Emmett Lathrop Brown.

There are retractable wings in front of the letters ELB.

Good Bye 2020! I’m Heading Back To The Future!

Back To The Future Cake

2020 has been a really rough year for everyone, so I wanted to end the year with something fun. I thought the perfect theme would be time travel. While I love Doctor Who, I wanted something funnier, so I decided to end 2020 and welcome in 2021 with two of my favorite Back To The Future Cakes. I first featured this amazing cake of Doc Brown’s DeLorean way back in 2011.

This stunning cake was created by one of my favorite cake decorator, Mike McCarey and his crew from Mike’s Amazing Cakes

As always, the detail on Mike’s cake is amazing.  My two favorite things about this cake?  First, You can’t see any support system other than the wheels.  Second, the spoke hubcaps.  They’re flawless and they would be extremely difficult to make.

I hope each and everyone one of you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve

Get Back To The Future With This DeLorean Cake

Back To The Future Cake

This Wonderful DeLorean Cake was made by Pink Cake Box. This Fabulous Back To The Future cake was made to look as much like an actual DeLorean as possible. The cake board is red with bumps and creases to look like the car is traveling through time. This Back To The Future Wedding Cake was the Groom’s Cake for a lucky Groom.

In 2017, just like Doc Brown, you will be able to own and drive around in your DeLorean vehicle.Who knows? You could be the next eccentric inventor to create your very own DeLorean time machine. 

The DeLorean Motor Company, based in Texas, is producing a new DeLorean car based on the DeLorean in the movie, Back To The Future.  There will only be 300 cars made. This new car will have a 300 horsepower engine, instead of the 130 horsepower engine of the original vehicle. The company plans to produce about one car a week in 2017. The cost should come in under one hundred thousand dollars.

The new DeLorean will have gull-wing doors and a stainless steel exterior, just like Dr. Brown’s car.
