Songs About Baking
There is absolutely nothing that can compare to the aroma of freshly baked goodies enveloping the kitchen. Even though we are all well aware of the pleasures that come from making (and consuming) baked goods such as cookies, cakes, and pies, there are times when we could use a little push in the form of music to get us in the mood for baking. To our good fortune, the process of baking has been the subject of several songs over the years.
We have compiled a list of the best songs about baking, just in time for the upcoming holiday season. These songs are sure to inspire you to head into the kitchen and whip up some delectable treats.
These songs range from timeless classics to more up-to-date compositions, but they all have one thing in common: they will inspire you to get in the kitchen and whip up something delicious.
1. “The Bakery” by Melanie Martinez
Melanie Martinez’s “The Bakery” is almost certainly going to be the first song that comes to anyone’s mind when they are asked to mention songs about Baking.
Melanie Martinez drew inspiration for “The Bakery” from a job held when she was still in high school. She did, in fact, work at a bakery, as the title suggests.
In the intro, she makes it clear that she got some fun out of it because she was able to indulge in some of the delicious dishes they made. However, the motivation behind her working there was to earn enough cash to escape “that sh*thole” in style. To be more explicit, Melanie has mentioned on social media that she is using the work to fund her artistic ambitions and that she is doing so to support herself.
And as is made clear in the second and third verses, the reason she detested working there was due to the repressive and nitpicking supervisors she was working with. Because of that, she was unable to muster the passion necessary to continue working at the bakery to actualise her dreams.
2. “Custard Pie” by Led Zeppelin
When you hear a song for the first time, it will often have a pure and good feel to it. Then, as you pay more attention to the lyrics, you find that it is talking about things that you were previously unaware of. The filthiest of songs can be made to seem less offensive by using double entendres.
We have included the song “Custard Pie” by Led Zeppelin for those of you who are fans of rock music. This song is a sensual take on baking, with the custard pie serving as a metaphor for female genitalia throughout the entire song.
Even though the song’s lyrics contain some sexual innuendo, it is still a good time and a great tune to listen to when you are whipping up a storm in the kitchen.
3.“If I Knew You Were Comin’…..” by Ethel Merman
This timeless ballad from Ethel Merman is the ideal piece of music to play in the background while you prepare a cake for a loved one who will be spending the weekend at your place.
It is a tune that will make you feel wonderful and get you excited about doing things like baking or just spending time with the people you care about. It is one of her most well-known songs, and over the years, several singers have performed their own versions of it.
4. “Cake” by Melanie Martinez
Melanie Martinez’s song “Cake” is a song about, you guessed it, cake! The song’s lyrics talk of a cake that has layers of chocolate, caramel, and vanilla, and it sounds really delectable.
The song also makes reference to a few other tastes, including strawberry, lemon, and orange, among others. The description of this cake makes it sound like it would be a real treat to eat.
Nevertheless, the song is about more than just the dish. It is also about the love and relationships that may be made through a mutual appreciation of cake.
Martinez repeats the phrase, “Love is just a piece of cake / If you bake it with some care,” throughout the chorus of the song. This sentence implies that maintaining a healthy relationship requires work and commitment, but that the effort is well worth it if it pays off in the form of a tasty cake in the end.
5. “Cake And Sodomy” by Marilyn Manson
The American rock band Marilyn Manson is credited for the song “Cake and Sodomy.” On November 8, 1994, it was made available to the public as the third single to be taken from the band’s debut album, Portrait of an American Family.
The lyrics of the song are written in the first person perspective, and they describe a sexually explicit event that takes place between the narrator and someone else who is cake-baking with them.
The title of the song is a play on the term “cake and sodomy,” which is frequently used to refer to sexual practices that were not consented to by both parties.
6. “For Goodness Sakes, Look At Those Cakes” by James Brown
Cakes are the subject of James Brown’s song. And not just any cakes — these are cakes that are so delicious that the very thought of eating one will make your knees buckle. The lyrics are packed with vivid descriptions of these mouthwatering treats, from the “moist and fluffy” cake to the “smooth and creamy” icing, and everything in between
James Brown sings about these cakes, but he is not just talking about how good they taste; he is also singing about how beautiful they are. He likens the ornamentation on the cake to works of art and describes the experience of viewing them in such detail that it is almost as if one were present in the room at the time. The creativity employed in this song is quite commendable.
Listening to this song will leave you mouthwatering, regardless of whether or not you are a fan of James Brown. Therefore, if you are searching for something that will make your upcoming celebration stand out from the others, why not give one of James Brown’s cakes a try?
