Bands That Had Their Cake and Ate It Too
In a bid to get the coveted Weezer tour support slot, local Melbourne band, and all around charmsters EMPRA, sent Chugg entertainment some incentive to give them the sought after support. The incentive came in the form of a delicious chocolate cake decorated to look like Weezer's iconic Blue Album cover. The EMPRA boys took it a cheeky step further by replacing Weezer's faces with their own. Suffice to say, the folks at Chugg were impressed enough to offer the creative band the support spot. This got us thinking, what other iconic rock n' roll cakes are there? Turns out, there's a huge amount of music-themed cakes being baked and consumed by some extremely devoted fans. Music-lovers seem to deem these musical cakes appropriate for any and all occasions, too (AC/DC wedding cake, anyone?). Here are some of the most notable, delectable and down right weird rock star cakes.
The Rolling Stones A devoted fan took the time to re-create Stones' Let It Bleed album cover. Devoted and delicious. Yum!
Radiohead We can't help but think that this Radiohead birthday cake might be multi-layered, complex and taste like sadness.
The Who Complete with matching fondant shoe, this cake does the band's iconic logo justice for sure.
U2 Ever wanted Bono to attend your party? Well this cake may just be the next best thing.
Madonna Madonna's famous cones make an appearance on this cake, that takes a trip back to the 80s.
Foo Fighters This Foo Fighters cake comes complete with each edible band member.
AC/DC AC/DC have some of the most devoted fans in music as is evidenced by this three-tiered band-themed wedding cake. Yep, some bride actually OK'd this.
Metallica While cakes and Metallica may not obviously go hand in hand, it seems to work in this delicious-looking creation. No word as to whether or not the chains and studded leather are edible
Bruce Springsteen No doubt this tasty treat which is decorated like the cover of Springsteen's Born to Run record, would taste like sweat, lovin' and American Dreams.
Deadmau5 Because who doesn't like the idea of eating a giant creepy mouse head?
KISS No music cakes would be complete without KISS... known to have every kind of merchandise ever invented, including wine, PEZ, and now cake.
Elvis So maybe this isn't flavoured like Presley's famous banana, bacon and peanutbutter sandwhiches, but let's not be hasty... it still looks delicious.
ABBA While Sweden isn't necessarily famous for its confectionary, ABBA, aka Sweden's greatest export ever, do have fans dedicated enough to make entire fondant-coated cakes in their honour.
Lady Gaga Gaga'a well known bow-tie hairstye has become so popular it's now available in cake form.
Freddie Mercury The Queen frontman has a special place in man fan's hearts as is obvious by this amazing Mercury-themed cake.
The Rolling Stones Who doesn't want a giant tongue as a cake? Making their second appearance on the list, this Rolling Stones cake is probably one of the more unusual band cakes that have been created.
The Shins Made to mimic one of the band's EP covers, this delicious chocolatey cake definitely would have made someone's special day.
Pink Floyd Recreating one of the most iconic band posters of all time, one dedicated fan has decorated a cake in honour of the notable Pink Floyd poster even going as far as to add dolls for a 3D effect.
Nirvana Complete with the iconic Smiley logo, a 3D fondant Kurt Cobain (modelled after the MTC Unplugged sessions) and black icing, this Nirvana birthday cake is the real deal.
