Top 8 Awesome Stranger Things Cake Ideas

1. Stranger Things Eleven Cake Design

Eleven is one of the main characters in the Stranger Things series [1]. If you are hosting an event for a huge fanatic of the series, then creating a cake designed with Eleven’s character is the way to go.

You can buy cake toppers featuring Eleven or have an expert baker create an edible print showcasing her (and maybe even her superpowers).

2. Stranger Things Sheet Cake

If you think having a layered cake can consume much, you may try a Stranger Things sheet cake. To create this one, you can look for inspiration from the official poster of the series. You even put Demogorgons on the borders of the cake [2].

Make sure to include dark red and black touches to really capture the essence of the series. Check out some Stranger Things gifts here

3. Friends Don’t Lie Cake

“Friends don't lie” is a line made famous by Eleven in the first season of Stranger Things. You can cover your cake in black fondant and use white icing to put the quote in the center.

You may also create a design portraying the gang riding their bicycles when going to school or on an adventure with Eleven and put the quote at the base of the cake.

4. Upside Down Stranger Things Cake

You can pull an Upside Down cake by creating a tree trunk on the bottom with a hole in the center which illustrates the passage to the Upside Down world. If you’re feeling creative, you can put Vecna at the top for an added touch!

5. Stranger Things Movie Poster Cake

One of the easiest ways to create a movie poster cake is by opting for an edible print. You may need help from an expert baker in creating this one, but if you’re up for the challenge, you can always research how to do this online.

Your cake could also feature the whole gang or just the celebrant’s favorite character. We've got some Stranger Things party ideas here

6. Stranger Things Cake With Character Toppers

Using toppers to decorate your cake is definitely one of the easiest ways to kick things up a notch. You can visit your local bakery or search for mini Stranger Things figurines online, which you could use as cake toppers.

Whether you’re rooting for Eleven, Dustin, or even for Vecna and the Demogorgons (yes, we know you exist), nothing screams, “I am a fanatic!” other than having a cake with the characters’ figurines standing on top.

7. Red & Black Stranger Things Cake

Red and black have been the prominent colors in the entire series. If you’re in for something minimalist, you could create a cake covered in black fondant with red icing details.

You can make the drippings using red icing or bake a red velvet cake covered in black fondant.

8. Stranger Things Tree Portal Cake

Nancy, Mike's sister, together with Jonathan, discovered the tree portal to the Upside Down World. You can create a layered cake and design it with many roots from top to bottom. Leave a space in the middle to portray the entrance to the Upside Down, or you can put the celebrant’s name in this part too.


What’s an easy Stranger Things cake recipe?

For an easy Stranger Things cake, you will need a one-box yellow cake mix, softened butter, powdered sugar, 1/2 milk, 1 tsp of maple extract, 1/2 kosher salt, black gel frosting, and 26 peanut M&Ms.

Bake a cake how one normally would, and design it using M&Ms, portraying the lights (one of the most iconic scenes) which Joyce used to talk with Will in Season 1.

Is it easier to buy a Stranger Things cake than to DIY it?

Yes, it is easier to buy a Stranger Things-themed cake than to DIY. However, if you have the time and the resources, you could always DIY your own Stranger Things-themed cake and let your creativity be your guide. But when did Stranger Things come out on TV?

Wrapping Up

Creating a Stranger Things-themed cake might be costly and time-consuming, but it is definitely worth it. A fanatic’s day will surely be more memorable once they see a customized cake, carefully crafted to perfection.
