Synthesizer cakes

Submitted by on May 19, 2009 – 2:51 pm 7 Comments

In celebration of a good friend’s birthday, I present to you a number of cakes that have been fashioned to look like synthesizers. Some of them are simple “cakes that look like a synth”, and some are full-on re-creations of real-life synthesizers.

These aren’t quite setting the synth-geek meter off as much as the synthesizer tattoos, however some of these are truly impressive.  I’ve seen a few fairly crazy cakes, but I have to say that synth cakes are definitely among my favorite musical bakery (or is that half-bakery?).

Definitely a great birthday present for a synth geek… Here they are:

A Roland SH-101:

A Clavivox:

Korg Synth:

A Modular cake:

The Moog Rogue:

Mystery synth:

Roland JP-8000:

Mystery Casio:


Another mystery synth cake:

EDP Wasp (via

Alesis Micron:

Generic synth:

This is another mystery synth, but it looks vaguely familiar (edit: identified as a Korg microkontrol, thanks Acowan!):

Are you getting as hungry as I am?  I guess I’ll have to wait until my birthday. If you’ve seen any other synth cakes, send us a picture and we’ll post it here.

UPDATE: We’ve got a whole bunch more in part 2: synth cakes 2
