Fantasy's favorite cake is carrot cake. She also dresses like a mermaid when the weather permits, but specializes in popping out of cakes. Fantasy isn’t a stripper and has made it clear that popping out of a cake in lingerie isn’t the same as taking your clothes off on a pole for dollar bills.
The art of erotic cake dancing has been depicted in cartoons, sitcoms, and reality shows like The Bachelor for decades. But how did it start? And with whom? And why? To learn more, it took a deep dive -- deeper than the untold stories of 4ft strippers, deeper even than ass-shaped cakes.
So I took off my shoes and dove head-first into the proverbial frosting that decorates the non-proverbial cake that provides naughty culinary entertainment for men all over the world.
The first recorded pop-out cake party is linked to a gruesome murder
Despite being told that the act of hiring a woman to pop out of a cake started in the movies, this tradition actually began way back in 1895 when a wealthy architect named Stanford White threw a party for some distinguished gentlemen of the time. White was a partner in the architectural firm McKim, Mead & White and specialized in designing houses for the rich, as well as religious buildings.
During the party at White’s house, a large pie was brought out for the gentlemen and -- out from this pie -- burst out a young girl named Susie Johnson, “wearing only a piece of see-through gauze.” However, this tale has little to do with Susie Johnson, and more about the woman who watched Ms. Johnson pop out of the cake -- Evelyn Nesbit.
Nesbit was a chorus girl and model who came to be known as “The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing” and reportedly had an illicit affair with Stanford White during the party. Some say the sex was consensual, others say it wasn’t… but that didn’t matter to Nesbit’s husband, Harry Kendall Thaw, who shot White three times during a show at the roof garden theatre in Madison Square Garden during the night of June 25th, 1906.
During this trial -- which the media referred to as “The Trial of the Century” -- the country waited on the edge of their seats as they read the details of the “Pie Girl Dinner” of what exactly happened the night Susie Johnson (as well as a bunch of birds) popped out of a pie.
