Top 6: Madina Lake on… Cakes

When in doubt, talk to a band about something really, really stupid. Once, we were talking to someone about Madina Lake and they heard, “Madeira Cake.” We told Matthew Leone and he laughed so we asked him what his Top 6 cakes are. Amazingly, he couldn’t actually think of six different cakes. Birthday? Christmas? Victoria sponge? NO? Ok.

1) Cheesecake
Nathan lives on a diet of grapes and cheesecake. i first discovered it’s splendor when i was 7. one was laid out on the dining room table at a family get together. i took a bite and was so delighted that i took the whole thing under my shirt and hid it in my closet. and forgot about it. until my mom found it a few weeks later.

2) Space Cakes
Just a brief affair in college, while traveling through amsterdam.

3) Cake the band
I love that song, “We’re going the distance… We’re going for speed… All alone, all alone all alone… In a time of need.”

4) Muji cake
Generally comes after garaging a sushi dinner.

5) Caked-on hot sauce
Hot sauce that’s caked on my jiborito sandwich from Habana Libre.

6) I don’t know enough cakes so can I chose a pie for my last?
I’ll go with the pie that the Alpha Betas sold at the Greek games, in 1985’s Revenge of the Nerds
