  1. cake-eater(Noun)

    a lounge lizard This usage of the term dates from the 1920s, when it vied in popularity with 'sheik' to indicate a slick young Romeo who wows the flappers and likes the high life. A Cake-Eater, when he's not trolling for jazz-babies at the local speakeasy, likes to loiter at a girl's house and be pampered, especially by being served his sweetie's baked goods-- and of course some degree of sexual metaphor might be inferred.

    Etymology: From the 1922 song "I'm a Cake Eating Man": "I'm a cake-eating man,/ Eat my cake where I can;/ I like a dapper flapper that shows a naughty knee,/ Who dances naughty jazz and shakes a naughty lingerie./ I'm there with my shoepolish hair,/ For I'm a mama-loving, cookie-chewing cake-eating man."
