WOMANKIND cupcakes









I sold cupcakes at my husband Rich's band's recent show here (he is above playing the bass in the background!) in Vancouver. Just for fun. They were special WOMANKIND cupcakes, earl grey cupcakes with earl grey buttercream... For years I used to play music and do some touring, lots of trips round North America -- Canada and the United States via van with hilarious bandmates, and even a month long trip to Europe touring and playing music with friends. So I've seen and worked a lot of merch tables in my day. Records, CDs, buttons, stickers... why not CUPCAKES? Scott, the bearded and delightful singer of Womankind, is a real tea drinker and tea lover. So I made earl grey tea cupcakes as kind of a thematic thing. Scott also is an illustrator, and he hand-drew two tshirts for the show. So the merch table was cupcakes, each with their own little WOMANKIND themed flag, and two tshirts... !!

It was fun. Next time I want to make ice cream sandwiches for their merch table... hehe...

That is fantastic! I might even do the same for my little brother's band..or maybe cookies? Cookies might seem a bit more 'hardcore', ha!
