We’re now suspicious that literally anything can be cake. But on TikTok, a cake dance preceded our collective paranoia and exhaustion.
As detailed by Know Your Meme, the All About Cake dance originated in May and uses kyleyoumadethat's mashup of Playboi Carti's "Cake" and Rihanna's "Birthday Cake," which originally soundtracked a video about actual cakes. User mehki created a new dance for it in late May, with the caption "doing this dance every day until it goes VIRAL!"
While most of the All About Cake videos include the dance, at least one involved a woman apparently discovering she's been using her grandmother's ashes to hold up her phone.
