about

How can you go wrong with a love song, creme-filled with dessert references & cute partner pet names? A feel-good, contagious tune - driven by clever lyrics & acoustic guitars. Definitely pop-y, but still having elements of new school country & playful hip-hop.

__________________________________________________________

The timeline for entering this song/video into KXT's Tiny Cake Contest. I wasn't planning on entering, but then my head took over.

Sept 18th - Got an idea for a new song that just happened to include a reference to a cake. I also nailed down a chord progression.
Sept 19th - I finished lyrics for the song, then lost the whole thing because of a computer error. Felt defeated.
Sept 20th - Attempted to remember some of the lyrics & took notes.
Sept 21st - Finished writing lyrics for the 2nd time & wrote the bass line.
Sept 22nd - Designed arrangement.
Sept 23rd - Recorded bass line.
Sept 25th - Edited bass line. Got a company to commit to filming & editing the video.
Sept 26th - Wrote keys.
Sept 28th - Recorded drums with Tim Crispin. Original people committed to shooting the video needed to back out, didn't think they could logically meet the deadline. Got someone else to commit to shooting.
Sept 29th - Recorded keys, rhythm/lead guitars, & vocals.
Sept 30th - Re-recorded intro guitars & vocals because of a new idea. The person that committed to filming backed out, due to work obligations.
Oct 2nd & 3rd - Edited, consolidated, & cleaned up session. Decided I was going to attempt to shoot the video myself.
Oct 3rd - Sent Pro Tools session to Sean P for mixing & mastering.
Oct 4th - With the help of my Mom, we shot the performance scene of the video.
Oct 6th - With the help of Brandy, we shot the story line scene of the video.
Oct 7th - Began experimenting with footage.
Oct 8th - Received 1st draft of mix/master.
Oct 9th - After a few revisions & edits, received the final mixed/mastered audio.
Oct 10th - Buckled down to seriously begin editing footage to the final audio. Finished artwork.
Oct 11th - Publicly posted about someone helping me with editing the video. Several tags, messages, & inquiries later, I decided to try again by myself.
Oct 12th - Threw away the entire video edit & started over.
Oct 13th - Completed video edit & metadata info. Submitted the final cut.

lyrics

VERSE I
lord-a-mighty I've - tried my whole life
never thought I'd ever get the recipe right
work day & night - no matter how much I tried
all I really needed was a pinch of your spice
messy with the jelly - tie that apron on tight
measurements right & it's packaged so nice
beggin' for a bite, but you know that's a lie
I'm dyin' for a whole slice of a piece of that pie

CHORUS
my cute little honey bun, doll face, yumminess, sweet cheeks
fruit loop, blue bella, snuggle muffin, ooo-wiii
dreamsicle, mi amor, sugar cookie, chickadee
bubble butt, my queen, coconut latte
baby, when it comes down to it, with you...
...I can have my cake & eat it too

VERSE II
whip with the whisk & requesting a kiss
need your marmalade on the tip of my lips
a teaspoon of this, you could never resist
give in to the sugar momma temptress

CHORUS
my cute little honey bun, doll face, yumminess, sweet cheeks
fruit loop, blue bella, snuggle muffin, ooo-wiii
dreamsicle, mi amor, sugar cookie, chickadee
bubble butt, my queen, coconut latte
baby, when it comes down to it, with you...
...I can have my cake & eat it too

BRIDGE
mix a bit of butter with 2 cups of white sugar
don't forget the eggs & the peaches out the cupboard
no microwave lovin' - preheat the oven
prep a dozen - got a sweet tooth for your pumpkin

CHORUS
my cute little honey bun, doll face, yumminess, sweet cheeks
fruit loop, blue bella, snuggle muffin, ooo-wiii
dreamsicle, mi amor, sugar cookie, chickadee
bubble butt, my queen, coconut latte
baby, when it comes down to it, with you...
...I can have my cake...
my cute little honey bun, doll face, yumminess, sweet cheeks
fruit loop, blue bella, snuggle muffin, ooo-wiii
dreamsicle, mi amor, sugar cookie, chickadee
bubble butt, my queen, coconut latte
baby, when it comes down to it, with you...
...I can have my cake & eat it too
...I can have my cake & eat it too
