"Cake solves everything” is a jocular saying of unknown authorship. This saying implies that if people sit down and eat cake, everyone will be in a better mood and arguments will cease. “Cake solves everything” was cited on Twitter on October 11. 2008.

Sometimes a particular cake is included in the saying, such as “ice cream cake solves everything” or “red velvet cake solves everything.”
