Mitch Orkis, co-founder and CMO of Cake, said, "When we originally launched Cake just over two years ago the plan was simpleto make the world's most approachable sex brand that would reinvent the sex aisle for good. It’s fun to see the investors we met on day one continue to double down on Cake again and again.”
