No Chocolate Cake is the fifth studio album by power pop band Gin Blossoms. It was released on September 28, 2010, worldwide, and the first single, "Miss Disarray", was released to radio stations on August 2, 2010.[8] The album reached #1 on Amazon.com MP3 album charts on the release date. No Chocolate Cake entered the Billboard 200 album chart at number 73 after selling 7,000 copies in its first week of release.[9] It was the album's peak position, after falling off the chart the following week.

"Miss Disarray" gathered a sizable amount of airplay on hot adult contemporary radio stations and reached the Top 50 on that format during late October 2010. The opening track "Don't Change for Me" is a cover of a Matthew Moon song.
