Uncle Joey is Marty Mcfly’s uncle from his mother’s side and throughout the films, he is a bit of a common feature. Not exactly on camera, but he gets mentioned a lot and usually, it is about one thing: “Uncle Joey didn’t get a parole.”. In Part 1 when Marty goes to dinner at his grandparents in 1955, we see Joey as a one-year-old who loves to be in his pen. In the alternate 1985 reality, the one where Biff is rich and all-powerful, it is mentioned that he is also in jail. Even a deleted scene in Part II from the 2015 family dinner scene states that he is still in jail and that he most likely didn’t get parole for the millionth time. It is a little sad to know that the films say that this is Joey’s destiny, no matter the timeline he lives in.


173 gr unsalted butter
400 gr sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
315 gr cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
120 ml buttermilk
180 ml Pepsi

Vanilla frosting
Light blue gel dye
Black icing
Orange icing
White icing
Red icing


How to bake

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Prep a rectangular cake pan by greasing it with non-stick spray or parchment paper.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk the cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until they are fluffy.
5. Carefully add the eggs one at a time until they are all incorporated.
6. Then add the vanilla.
7. Alternate adding the buttermilk and Pepsi and the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until everything is well combined.
8. Pour the batter into the prepped pan.
9. Bake for 40 minutes until the cake is done and let it cool completely.
10. Set aside 1 cup of the vanilla frosting and mix that the blue gel dye. Then set aside.
11. Once the cake is cooled, frost it with the rest of the vanilla frosting. And spread it out evenly and flat across the surface.
12. If you’re nervous about replicating the image, use a toothpick to sketch out the design, then go over the lines with the black icing.
13. Pipe the inside of the cell with the dyed blue frosting. Don’t use all of it, you’ll need a small amount for details later. Use an offset spatula to get the frosting even.
14. Using a #4 tip, pipe the bird using the black icing.
15. With the orange icing and a #3 tip, add the feet and beak to the bird.
16. Go back in with white icing to add details to the eye, and blue icing around the belly.
17. Do the same with the black icing, outlining the beak and feet with a #2 tip.
18. Finally, use a #7 tip and red icing to add the lettering.
19. And you are done!
