To hear the old-timers tell it, there wasn’t much difference between the two — in other words, lousy taste was a common complaint among those who tried eating the gummy sweets. But, hey — they looked cool!

Kids will eat up the brand new Incredible Edible toy (1968)
Something boys and girls are sure to “eat up” is the brand new Incredible Edible toy featuring Kooky Kakes. In just five minutes, a luscious chocolate or vanilla Kooky Kakeroop can be baked in the immaculate Makery Bakery oven.
And then — for further fun — decorated with Frosteroop icing and Gooble-DeGoop candy mix and all kinds of wacky-looking creature arms, feet and facial features. All sorts of goodies come with Kooky Kakes: 12 packets of Kakeroop, Frosteroop, cherry Gobble-DeGoop, 2 baking pannikins, mixing bowl and spoon and decorating accessories.
I remember the 1968 version with the cakes — they were hard little circular balls in the cake mix envelope (chocolate or vanilla) that you added water to and sort of bound them together but they were still hard little balls. Then the makery bakery oven heated them up and it didn’t really bake them but more or less dried the cake balls into a statue. I recall they tasted okay but the texture was awful. They “baked” in a pan which looked like half a hard boiled egg, sliced top to bottom, turning out oval shaped cakes. Sometimes the cakes would turn out of the pan with a “snotty”, sticky, shiny rounded top and a flat bottom. You could put them on the same-shaped, white plastic stands with pointy little cleats to hold onto the cake (I remember they were sharp — I think we used them to cheese-grate my sister’s arm once — ouch, how cruel) using plastic animal or bird feet to stand up, and decorate with eyes and other plastics, topped off with icing that came with it.
I had this toy. The problem with these edible toys back then is that their popularity was so short lived that in a short amount of time you were stuck with a candy maker that you couldn’t get the ingredient to make them. I remember they really didn’t taste all that great, it was more fun to make them than to eat them.
