Delicious! Aarzemnieki releases official video for Cake to Bake

Aarzemnieki may not know how to bake a cake, but they sure do know how to bake an upset. The group, fronted by loveable German Jöran Steinhauer, overcame competition from more established Latvian acts including Samanta Tina, Olga Rajecka, and Dons to win the right to sing in Copenhagen. Now they’re keeping the momentum going and have released the official video for their number “Cake to Bake”.

The song isn’t just about flour, sugar, and a bit of icing. Here’s how Jöran describes it.

The idea of the video is the same as for the song – a person on their own is not able to know everything that is why they occasionally need to ask for help, which is especially challenging for men.

In addition, in the moment when people are ready to ask for assistance, the others are really willing to show their support and give a hand. It is exactly what has happened during the video shooting. The video is shot in Open Air museum, in a very Latvian environment, because I think that Latvia and its nature offer so much for people to be happy. It has to be shown to others. The song is written in the way it is possible to sing at any time and any place having just some musical instruments and good friends around.

What do you think? Does this have a shot at making the final? Are you loving the happy vibe as much as we are?

Note about the lyrics: “cep” means bake. “kuuku” means cake.

Cake to Bake lyrics 

I melted the ice of the polar caps
Found the raiders of the lost ark
Solved the case for the genius from Baker Street
Helped to clean the Central Park

I created the plan for the Chinese wall
Went to desert, made it rain
Swam through a shark tank, bloodily
Found Atlantis by the way

But today I’ve got a cake to bake
I’ve got no clue all
I’ve got a cake to bake
And haven’t done that before

Don’t be proud, but please don’t bother
Now come on and ask your mother
How to bake, how to bake, bake that cake

cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku
cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku
cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku

I talked to a unicorn the other night
He took me up on a lonely star
Did the moon walk on the Milky Way
Realized I’ve gone too far

So I questioned the law of gravity
Put the apple back on the apple tree

And today I’ve got a cake to bake
I’ve got no clue all
I’ve got a cake to bake
And haven’t done that before

Don’t be proud, but please don’t bother
Now come on and ask your mother
How to bake, how to bake, bake that cake

Make some love
Add some love

We’ve got a cake to bake
And have no clue at all
We’ve got a cake to bake
And haven’t done that before

cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku
cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku
cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku

We’ve got a cake to bake
And have no clue at all
We’ve got a cake to bake
And haven’t done that before

Don’t be proud, but please don’t bother
Now come on and ask your mother
How to bake, how to bake, bake that cake

Make some dough
Add some love
Let it bake
Wait for it

Make some dough
Add some love
Let it bake
Wait for it
