: : I heard a phrase in a song that I had never ehard before, and wondered if there is meaning from another time or age. The phrase is "Slappin' the cakes on me". Thanks for your help.

The phrase is a title of a jazz song that was
written by David Frishberg, a swing pianist. He also wrote "Blizzard of Lies". Below is a link with an image---Dave is on the left!
