Piece of Cake is the third studio album by the grunge band Mudhoney. Recorded and released in 1992, it was their first album released through Reprise Records. It features several songs, such as "Suck You Dry," "Blinding Sun," and "Acetone," that are consistently featured in Mudhoney's live setlist.

Although released at the peak of grunge, a genre Mudhoney had helped create, the band and Piece of Cake did not get any special notice, commercially or critically.

Reprise reissued this album bundled with the E.P. "Five Dollar Bob's Mock Cooter Stew" and the B-Sides from the album singles in 2003 (a similar effort like Sub Pop's "Superfuzz Bigmuff Deluxe" re-issue in 2008 and Reprise's reissue of My Brother the Cow in 2003).
