Tina Fey stopped by Saturday Night Live this week to model a sweet fix for unleashing political frustration: sheet-cake. She sported a sweatshirt of her 1992 alma mater — the University of Virginia.

Right off the bat, the actress, who appears on SNL quite often, is fuming mad over Donald Trump. She tells SNL anchor Colin Jost that, “He [Trump] condemns violence on many sides, on many sides Collin. And I’m feeling sick ‘cause, you know, I’ve seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn’t confused by it. Nazis are always bad.”

She continues, “Then we hear that there’s nine more alt-right rallies planned around the country this Saturday including one in New York City in Washington Square Park. Part of me hopes these neo-Nazis do try it in New York City. I hope they try it and get the ham salad kicked out of them by drag queens.”

All jokes aside, Fey says she “doesn’t want any more good people to get hurt,” yet recognizes that a lot of the country is feeling anxious, wondering what they can do to make a difference.

She urges that come Saturday, instead of participating in the “screaming matches and potential violence,” to find a local bakery and order a cake with an American flag on it, and just eat it.

Tina shovels heaps of heavily frosted cake into her mouth. “And the next time you see a bunch of white boys, boys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back, and you want to scream ‘It’s not our country, we stole it from the Native Americans.’ And when they have a peaceful protest at Standing Rock, we shoot at them with rubber bullets,” she says, referring to the month-long protest opposing the completion of the Dakota Access crude-oil pipeline.

“But we let you chinless turds march through the streets with semi-automatic weapons,” she said with cake all over her face.

She suggests that — instead of “yelling it at the Klan” — frustrated Americans yell it into the cake. In addition to Trump and white supremacists, she slams House Speaker Paul Ryan and pundit Anne Coulter (“yard sale Barbie”).

Almost immediately, the hashtags “#sheetcakemovement” and “#sheetcaking” were trending on Twitter, reports the Washington Post.

Fey says most of her female friends have been sheet-caking once a week since the election. And at one point, she even dips a grilled cheese into the half-eaten (and completely demolished) cake.

“In conclusion,” she says, “I really want to encourage all good, sane Americans to treat these rallies like the opening of a thoughtful movie with two female leads: Don’t show up. Let these morons scream into the empty air. I love you Charlottesville, and as Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘Who’s that hot girl over by the butter churn?’”
