I enjoy the show The Cake Boss on TLC, and actually have it on a Season Pass. I watched Monday’s episode, “Key to the City and a Key-tar Cake”, yesterday, and much to my surprise, it was an ’80s theme!
The episode opens with a girl named Cherie, who asks for “the totally awesome Buddy.” It turns out she is in an ’80s tribute band called Back to the ’80s. They are doing their 80th show so they’d like a 1980s-inspired cake to help celebrate.
After doing some research, I found that the group is not called Back to the ’80s. It is actually called Rubix Kube.
Buddy’s cake is going to be huge dance floor with a boom box on top with four tiers of cake on top of that. It’s going to have strawberry shortcake filling, “because it’s timeless.”
Then Buddy’s sisters (who also work in the bakery) decided to make everyone wear ’80s attire. Then they had a contest on who has the best outfit.
The episode also featured Buddy getting a key to the city for the town he grew up in, called Little Ferry. He also made a cake for that event.
The episode closed with Buddy and his crew bringing the awesome cake to the concert. The band loved it. Then they brought Buddy on stage while they performed a song. It was pretty cool.
The episode will be aired again on TLC on the following dates and times:
Aug 02, 11:30 pm
Aug 10, 8:00 pm
Aug 10, 11:00 pm
It is fun episode, so I would recommend watching it.Follow @returntothe80s

You don’t by any chance know the name of the song Rubix Kube performed when Buddy came in with the cake? It repeated ‘let’s go back to the 80’s’ quite a bit.
That is an awesome question! There is a song called “Back to the 80s” by Aqua, but I’m not sure if it’s that or not. Rubix Kubed sounded a million times better, so I can’t tell if it’s the same song or not. It may even be an original song. I will try to find out for you.
Thanks! =D It was a great song! I couldn’t stop singing it!
I’ve listened to Aqua’s song but, unless Rubix Kube totally jazzed it up, I don’t think it’s the same one. I may be wrong though.

Hi! I don’t know if you are able to see this reply. I just interviewed the band this past weekend for the podcast, and I remembered your question, so I brought it up in the interview.
The song is actually a “Cake Boss Exclusive”. It is something Cherie whipped up in about 90 seconds for the show. The Cake Boss people couldn’t secure the rights to any of the songs that Rubix Kube were playing. So Cherie wrote the song, and this is the only time it has been played. I will be posting the podcast episode this week.
