"Baby Cakes" is the only single by the British garage trio 3 of a Kind. It reached Number 1 in the United Kingdom in August 2004.[1] A follow up "Wink One Eye" was recorded but was never released. It was also the song that kept "Can't Stand Me Now" by The Libertines off the top spot. Despite this success, they never had another chart hit. The music video shows the band in a cake shop and contains several double-entendres. It was dedicated in loving memory of Joseph Caruana who died in an accident on 19 December 2001.
