What does Caking mean?

Caking equals Flirting

Caking is a slang term used to describe the act of flirting with someone. This could be face to face, through online platforms, or via text messages. The term draws its roots from the phrase “being sweet on someone”, a way to express that a person has romantic interest in another.

The process of caking can take various forms. It could be as simple as engaging in a conversation with someone you’re interested in. It could also involve showing affection through physical contact, such as hugging, holding hands, kissing, or whispering sweet nothings.

Caking isn’t restricted to physical presence. It can also take place digitally, through suggestive texts or what is commonly known as “sexting“. An alternate term for caking is “cupcaking“, adding further to the sweet connotations of the lingo.
