Tina Fey wants "sheet caking" to happen.

Tina Fey doesn't want "any more good people to get hurt" at planned rallies and protests from far-right groups. So, she has jokingly offered an alternative to attending these gatherings, a practice she calls "sheet caking."          

"I would urge people this Saturday, instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support, maybe a Jewish-run bakery or an African American-run bakery," the University of Virginia graduate said on Thursday's summer edition of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live.

"Order a cake with the American flag on it, like this one (she gestures), and just eat it, Colin (Jost)," she said, speaking to the Weekend Update co-anchor.         

When Jost informed Fey that some rallies had already been canceled, she seemed pleased. "You see, it's working already," she said. "Sheet caking is a grassroots movement, Colin. Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election."         

Fey continued presenting her "argument."

"In conclusion, I really want to say — to encourage all good, sane Americans to treat these rallies this weekend like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads," she said. "Don't show up."         

Almost immediately, the hashtags “#sheetcakemovement” and “#sheetcaking” began circulating on social media, Philly.com reported.
