....so remember when HBO was new and only had the same 10 or so movies on all the time?.....well Fast Times at Ridgemont High was on all the time.....it's one of those rated R movies that you were not really allowed to watch, but kinda snuck it in here and there....it totally reminds of the 80s and whenever it's on now....you just have to leave on!
....also after doing The Big Lebowski cupcakes last year for father's day....the hubby has requested movie cupcakes every year!...so this year is Fast Times at Ridgemont High.....
....the main characters are represented in cupcakes form.....(you kinda have to know the movie though to really get it!)
...the mr. hand (edible chocolate chalkboard...super easy directions found here at dollhouse bake shoppe!)...made with a chocolate bar, powdered sugar, candy melt and white sprinkles
...and the jeff spicoli...the character sean penn can never escape from! 3 layers of pizza circles topped with a taco and cheese seasoned cream cheese "frosting", then topped with a cracker written with one of his fav sayings with edible marker
...the linda barrett....played by phoebe cates and best known for driving teenage boys cray cray with her swimming pool scene....(google "fast times at ridgemont high swimming scene" and you'll see what i mean)....a vanilla cupcake with some candy melt toppers.....
...and the brad hamilton (my fav character in the movie!)...who proudly worked at all american burger ('til he got fired for popping a gasket and then had to take a job at the much lower captain hook's fish and chips)...vanilla cupcake sliced in half with a slice of chocolate cupcake for the burger....tinted coconut for lettuce and tinted buttercream for the cheese and ketchup....and some sesame seeds on top
...the mark "rat" ratner, some popcorn (he worked at the movie theater!) atop a plain vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream
....and the stacy hamiltion...same vanilla cupcake with swirled red buttercream and a red bow which is supposed to be her uniform at the pizza place she worked at across from the movie theater...(plus a candy melt carrot---if you know the movie you may know what that's for ;)
...AND the mike damone...who can every forget his 5 point plan he demonstrated on debbie harry?....he needed a pic all on his own....some candy melt coated graham cracker "van halen" tickets (don't call him a scalper...he performs a service and that service costs money) and his skinny piano scarf made from vanilla tootsie roll and detail in edible marker....if you were an 80's kid you had to have a skinny piano tie or scarf!
...and you get a bunch of cupcakes in tribute to one of the quintessential 80's movies around!...
....we had a great father's day and the kids had no clue what these cupcakes were all about...and that's ok...i made a couple extra burgers and they enjoyed those plus some ice pops....so all was good in the world!
....thanks for stopping by and have a super awesome week before 4th of july....can't wait to see all the red, white, and blue stuff popping up all over the place!...thanks for also indulging in my 80'sness lately...what's your favorite 80s movie??
