We all know that Latvia’s Aarzemnieki will be singing “Cake to Bake” at Eurovision. So when we heard that the group was headed to Amsterdam for Eurovision in Concert, we were really worried they’d bake a spacecake in a coffee shop and miss the show!

But, as we learned during our interview, frontman Jöran Steinhauer’s biggest vice is honey cake.

We first met Jöran at Latvia’s national final in Ventspils. He was really tired back then, and the non-stop work has run him down even more. But he’s staying upbeat and positive, just like his song, which is all about reaching out when you need to. “If you can’t do easy things like bake a cake it’s not a problem,” he says. “You should ask for help.”

He also clarified that “Cake to Bake” is more challenging than some people think: “I think there are 10 or 11 chords or something. It’s not that easy!”

I’m never too grown up for a well-written guitar singalong personally myself. This is a perfect campfire song. I absolutely love it, it’s my favorite this year, and I hope Latvia does very well. (Then again, the two previous years, my pre-contest favorites haven’t qualified, but I still love them to death.)

Having 11 chords and being complex . is not a synonym to being a good song … good should have been an adjective added to this complex 11 chord description but … it missed that mark by sounding to silly and joke-like for my taste. I’m too grown up for this cake baking …
