1. Paying way too much attention to a particular female. (Flirting, talking to/about her all the time, dropping the "L" word in public, being real cutesy, always making out)
2. PDA (public display of affection)
3. Being whipped (You all up in your girl's face and she got you wide open)
4. When it looks like a guy traded in his playa card - he's acting a little too lovey.
For all of the above: usually denied by the person who was caking.
Eg 1 - 4
Guy 1: Look at him all pathetic! All cuddled up with Shaniqua. Yes dear, no dear, in her face... Guy you whipped.
Guy 2: What? Naw, Nigga you jealous!
Guy 3: Naw, dog, you girl got you open. That was some Betty Crocker Caking right there!
