  • The early episode title was called "The Wedding."
  • There are several different types of wedding ceremonies visible in this episode. This includes a traditional Jewish ceremony, and an unconventional hippie or new age ceremony in which a marrying spiritual couple wear pyramids on their heads, hold a pyramid in their hand, and are to partake in a meal of "thirteen-grain granola."
  • This is the first episode in which we meet Uncle Ben and Aunt Elaine. Drew describes Ben as his "little brother's wife's half-brother," so either Boris or Minka (Didi's parents) had a child from another relationship.
  • The title is based on Marie Antoinette's famous "Let them eat Cake" quote.
  • Nickelodeon originally wanted Ben to call Stu by his first name, not "Mr. Pickles," but the line remained.
  • Nickelodeon had qualms about the wedding cake because it was intact after going under a table, but in the final script, it remained intact.
  • The original script for "Let Them Eat Cake' was also to have revealed Boris & Minka's last name. In the original script, it was "Krapopkin," but it was later dropped.
  • Nickelodeon wanted Minka & Boris' "mother tongue" to sound genuine.
  • This is the third time where Tommy is seen wearing shoes
