RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Radio: It's a Piece of Cake

The November 2014 edition of ARRL's QST magazine had a couple photos of some way-cool looking cakes decorated to look like Ham radios. I figured there might be a few more out there so a Google search ensued using "radio cake" as the keywords. "Few" is not the most accurate word for describing the humongous number of radio cakes that have been made. Below is a small sample of specialty cakes you can find just in the Ham and antique radio categories.

In the electronics topics alone there are cakes styled after cellphones, computers, telephones, boom boxes, alarm clocks, microwave ovens, televisions, video games, watches, phonographs, tape players, kitchen appliances, circuit components (inductors, capacitors, resistors, etc.), circuit board assemblies, antennas, test equipment, and much more. If you have a special occasion coming up and are handy with an icing applicator (or know someone who is), then either preform a topical search for your specific interest or check out a website like CakeCentral.com, CoolestBirthdayCakes.com, TasteOfHome.com, or the countless other private sites.
