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 Modular cake:
The Moog Rogue:
Another mystery synth cake:
EDP Wasp (via electronic-obsession.se):
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 2Related posts:
