Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson handled vocals on this track, which they wrote with the group's drummer, Keith Strickland, and guitarist, Ricky Wilson. In Cindy's Songfacts interview
, she said: "'Cake' was a wonderful song with music by Ricky and Keith. It was an interesting collaboration with Kate and I jamming on the lyrics, with us coming up with a recipe for cake. It was, as it turns out, pretty good. I like 'Cake.' A lot of people come up to me and tell me it's one of their favorites. It wasn't one of our big hits, but they love it."
