The “Saturday Night Live” and University of Virginia alum says ‘sheet-caking’ is a sweeter alternative to shouting hate.
Tina Fey’s latest bit takes the cake.
The “Saturday Night Live” alum appeared on the sketch show’s “Weekend Update: Summer Edition” Thursday night, and dished some advice on how our divided nation should handle white supremacist rallies in the future: by staying home and stress-eating sheet cake.
“Sheet-caking is a grassroots movement,” explained Fey, wearing a University of Virginia sweatshirt – her alma mater – as she tore into a sample flat cake smothered in icing and an American flag. “Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election.”
She suggested that instead of getting into screaming matches and potential violence, people should just “yell it into the cake.“
So Moneyish has rounded up five sheet cakes under $50 that you can order online, if you don’t have time to swing by a local bakery. (Prices will vary by location, and most call for a two-day lead time before you can pick up your comfort snack.)
Whole Foods serves two-layer sheet cakes filled and topped with buttercream, with the cakes coming in flavors such as black & white, strawberry & cream, plus vegan and flourless chocolate varieties. Half sheet cakes start at $39.99, or get them with fruit for $49.99.
