What song should play during your cake-cutting ceremony?

Your cake-cutting ceremony is the perfect occasion for a fun song. Couples tend to gravitate towards sweet and frothy musical confections to put a smile on their guests’ faces.

DJ Brian Anderson can suggest some fun ones, beginning with Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman.” This 2006 hit pays homage to the Andrew Sisters big band sound during the World War II era:

For those familiar with the genre, this song is meant as a send-up of “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company C.” Be forewarned, though, that the lyrics are fairly racy. Here’s a PG-13 sample:

Well, by now I’m getting all bothered and hot

When he kissed my mouth, he really hit the spot

He had lips like sugar cane (oh!)

Good things come for boys who wait.

Not to be outdone, Aguilera’s rival, Gwen Stefani, released her own ‘bon bon’ of a song the same year, only hers was called, “The Sweet Escape:”

The dance-pop style is totally fun, as you can see in the video above, even if the lyrics are totally lame:

Woo-who, yee-who

Cause I’ve been acting like sour milk all on the floor

It’s your fault you didn’t shut the refrigerator

Maybe that’s the reason I’ve been acting so cold

If I could escape (escape).

But for a cake-cutting ceremony, fun music matters more than lame lyrics!

Here’s a recipe for a great cake-cutting song: Harry Connick Jr. Check out this delightful big band song, “Recipe for Love.”

The lyrics are nice and sweet, perfect for the cake-cutting ceremony:

A little bit of me and a whole lot of you,

Add a dash of starlight and a dozen roses, too.

Then let it rise for a hundred years or two

And that’s a recipe for making love.

Sara Bareilles wrote a happy pop ballad that would work beautifully during your cake-cutting:

The lyrics are optimistic (and family-friendly):

Tell the world that we finally got it all right,

I choose you,

I will become yours and you will become mine.
