The “All About Cake” dance is going viral on TikTok. While just as popular as Twitter’s Everything Is Cake memes, there is unfortunately no relation between the two. But the choreo by @Mehki (formerly @Mehkivuitton) is just as entertaining. It is marked by the woah and crossing arm motions. It’s actually  is performed to a mash-up of Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” and Playboi Carti’s “Cake” by music producer and TikToker @Kyleyoumadethat.

Lyrics:

I talk the cake, yeah.
All about cake, yeah.
Can’t really relate.
All about cake.
I’m trynna
Cake cake, cake, cake, cake cake.

Creator @mekhi shared the dance on May 24. By mid-June it became a TikTok staple. The audio is linked to over 6.4 million videos. Most of the videos at the top of the sound are TikTokers performing @Mekhi’s choreo. At the time of publication, @Mehki’s first video sharing his dance had accrued 820,000 likes and was viewed over 5.9 million times.
