(Ziggy)

Hot pile on the candy it's such a pretty sight it makes the food taste
dandy but my tummy hurts all night

(Stingy)
I'll put in some ingredients but keep the rest for me
I'm not just disobediant I'm careful can't you see

(Stephanie)

It's a piece of cake
to bake a pretty cake if the way is hazy
you gotta do the cooking by the book you know you can't be lazy
never use a messy recipe the cake would end up crazy
if you do it by the book then you'll have a cake
we gotta have it made you know that I love cake
finally it's time to make a cake

(Pixel)

Making food is just like science with tools that blend and baste
every fun appliance gives the food a different taste

(Stephanie)

It's a piece of cake to bake a pretty cake if the way is hazy
you gotta do the cooking by the book you know you can't be lazy
never use a messy recipe the cake will end up crazy
if you do the cooking by the book then you'll have a cake
we gotta have it made you know that I love cake
finally it's time to make a cake
we gotta have it made you know that I love cake
finally it's time to make a (you gotta do the cooking by the book) cake

    General CommentThis song is the awesomest evar. I'm glad I get to be the first one to post about it.

    Although this song probably doesn't mean anything more than using a cookbook to bake a cake, I'd like to extract some deep meaning from it.

    I think it goes with the mantras, "stick to the plan," and "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" where you should just use what works, otherwise everything will go "Craaaaazy" (don't eye-roll that Stephanie does in video)
