Cake may have been defined as an Alternative Rock band never always seemed quite accurate.  It wasn’t that they were mainstream as they were far from that, but their geeky brand of music drew from so many genres and created herky jerky combinations that made them a unique act.  Lyrically, they were in their own world and full of sarcastic references.  They developed a good core audience, but it won’t be enough to warrant serious Hall consideration.

There is no band out there like Cake, one of six bands that I own every album they have put out (I know there have only been six, but when there is a seventh I will snatch that one up too). And incidentally, you picked the right album to highlight. Fashion Nugget may be the greatest bitter about a breakup album I can think of, good enough that you want someone to cheat on you just so you can listen to it all the way through. Plus their version of I Will Survive is the second greatest cover ever, with only Johnny Cash's version of Hurt topping it.

Cake is just awesome. The lyrics are awesome. The musicality is awesome. And John McRae's voice is perfect for their vibe. There is no mistaking Cake for any other band and uniqueness over a long period of time is hard to find these days.

While I agree with you that they are probably a bit too niche to get in the Hall, they are personally a first ballot band for me.
