The Living End Retrospective Cupcakes by cakecrumbs The Living End Retrospective Cupcakes by cakecrumbs
Last December, one of my favourite bands in the world treated us to the most amazing tour in the world. They played every album, front to back, over 6 nights in every state. In Melbourne, their home town, we got a few extra shows so we ended up with 11 shows [plus an extra one-off show for the under 18s].

It was one of the most amazing weeks of my life. There are no words to convey how amazing it was, how thankful I am to those guys for giving us something so special. They treat their fans better than any band I know.

Since I was flat out with Christmas stuff I didn't have time to make the album replica cakes I wanted to, so I made a much smaller celebration. These are red velvet cakes with cream cheese icing. They feature the bands logo, which I piped from dark chocolate. The bands album design almost always consists solely of red, white and black, so I wanted to stick with that colour theme.

Blog post with the cupcake recipe and me rambling incessantly about all my band feelings: [link]

Oh I hope you get to see them soon! They are phenomenal live. They've been touring a lot more internationally lately so I have my fingers crossed for you.

Wow, these look so freaking delicious! I myself love red velvet cake and if you were to leave these in a room with me... let's just say that there wouldn't be much left of them :'p You should sent these (or the pictures at least) to your favourite band! I bet they would be psyched (;

Thanks so much. :D A few friends tried to convince me to give it to the guys but I couldn't. I'm so shy and I can't approach people, let alone band members. I've met them at signings a few times and they are lovely, just the most gentlemanly guys. But I feel if I approach them outside that setting I'm invading their personal time and space.

This one time they were playing secret shows under another name at a festival and I'm standing there on barrier with my TLE top on watching the band before them. They came out to watch the band and were standing like a meter from me and I just acted like I couldn't see them cause I couldn't bring myself to say hi!

You should totally have said hello to them! I would have probably done the same thing though, I'm quite a shy person myself. But if you're having trouble with that then maybe just write them an email or at least send them a picture of these lovely cupcakes you made! It just seems like such a shame for you not to show them your amazing food art (:

If you just say hi that wouldn't invade their personal time and space - as long as you're not being pushy, which I'm sure you won't be! Next tiiime, just say hello. I bet for them it's always nice when a fan is being appreciative of them :')

Maybe one day I will work up the courage!

I know they wouldn't mind, those guys especially. They are so endlessly giving of their time to fans and always hang out after the show. It's basically just my internal monologue telling me I'm bothering them.

You do that! I'm sure they'd truly appreciate it (: It sounds as if they really do give a lot of time to their fans, so I'm sure they'd really appreciate it if they got back from a fan, especially something as amazing and tasty as you are making for them! Good luck with that, I'm totally rooting for you ;')
