Your skin is warm like an oven
Your kiss is sugary sweet
Your fingers feel like cotton
When you put your arms around me
I feel like I'm just missing
Something whenever you leave
We've got all the...

Crybaby is in love with a boy, and she gave her virginity to him. He left her, so she's saying that she's not a piece of cake (cake = ass). She's saying ("you smell like vanilla and taste like buttercream") because he seems good and he's actually really bad.
Then she's saying that he is a piece of meat to her, which means that she sees him as replaceable as he saw her, and she's going to make him miss her.

Crybaby is heartbroken from johnny because in pity party she invited him and beth ann but they won't come to her party so she wants him back so when the lyrics say you smell just like vanilla you taste like buttercream that probably means that crybaby or her mom (idk)
baked him into a cake so yeah this is just my theory

This one's about Cry Baby being used for sex. The guy only wants her for her body, and she won't stand for that. But, after that is Gingerbread Man. This is where she takes back what she said in Cake. She wants someone to love her for her body, and someone who is as crazy as her. ("One who's always crazy")

Cry baby and this guy had sex and now hes done and leaves her and very time she talks to him hes being mean and rough do to the line of "your a pice of meat" (can't spell right ) cry baby is telling him how rude your being to her and thats were this line come in place "i am a pice of cake " she is say that she has been so nice to him and now he is being a dirt bag/rude/play boy
(idk I am only doing what I think it means).

This song is about how Crybaby is in love with a boy. The boy takes advantage of her body and then leaves her. She is saying that she is not the type of girl for a hit-it-and-quit-it. She calls him a piece of meat to tell him that he is also easily replacable. A cake is hard to replace because of unique taste and design, but almost all meat is the same. Difference in type, but that's all.

I actually know for a fact what the meaning of the song is. Crybaby (A fictional character that Melanie made up) lost her virginity to some boy (unknown). The boy didn't love her back, he just wanted her for sex. Later on, in a different song, Gingerbread Man, she changed her mind and wanted boys to love her body, not herself. This isn't my opinion either, it's literally what Melanie Martinez said the song was about. Of course, this didn't actually happen to her, it's just part of Crybaby's story.

My interpretation is that Crybaby has a crush on this male person in the song and that she loves him so much that she gave her virtue/virginity to him, and he took it and then left her and broke her heart. The reason for this interpretation is because I have a crush and this song kinda describes him how I would...except for the chorus because I wouldn't give away my virtue at this age, and I never kissed him so don't know what his kiss would be like.I did bite him once though.. don't question this.. I obsess over vanilla and no he doesn't smell like vanilla.He smells like powder and flowers. <3 That's all for my opinion. Baii!

I think that she is getting raped or something. She sings " I'm not a piece of cake for you to take " And thats just my opinion. Don't hate. I know many others have opinions.

I think it's about a relationship she had but it had no love or meaning. The boy had taken for her granted and has cheated on her with another.
