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.
