“Sheet caking is a grassroots movement. ... Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election.”

In case you missed Tina Fey’s epic rant on Thursday night’s episode of “Weekend Update: Summer Edition,” you may be wondering why everyone’s talking about sheet cake.

The “Saturday Night Live” alum delivered a powerful criticism of our country’s leadership as more white supremacist rallies are scheduled to take place around the nation, all while stuffing her face with sheet cake in an extraordinary fashion.

Not only is her speech socially and politically moving, but it’s also impossible to watch without developing a massive craving for sheet cake.

Fey suggests we all partake in some sheet cake.

“We’re asking ourselves, what can I do? I’m just one person, what can I do? I would urge people this Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support. Maybe a Jewish-run bakery or an African-American-run ... bakery. Order a cake with the American flag on it ... and just eat it.” 

She later adds, “Sheet caking is a grassroots movement. ... Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election.”

According to People, the cake featured on “Weekend Update” came from Manhattan’s La Delice Pastry Shop, which received a rush order on an American flag cake but didn’t know why. You can order your own for $63.75 plus $20 for the flag decoration.

In case your local bakeries are all sold out, you can make your own sheet cake with our favorite recipes below. Become a part of the movement.
