After the cake is crafted, the three (now empty) buckets will go into the player's inventory unless it is full, in which case they remain on the crafting table.

Trading[edit]

Farmer villagers sell 1 cake for 1 emerald as a fourth tier trade.

Usage[edit]

See also: Hunger Management

Unlike most foods, cake cannot be eaten as an item in the hotbar. Before being eaten, it must first be placed on top of another block.

To eat from a placed cake, click on the cake with use button. Each cake has six "slices", and each use will consume one slice. A single slice restores 2 (Hunger.svg) hunger and 0.4 hunger saturation. Eating all six slices of a cake restores 12 (Hunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svgHunger.svg) hunger and 2.4 hunger saturation.

Unlike the eating of other foods, eating a slice of cake is instantaneous (an entire cake can be eaten as fast as it can be clicked) and makes no sound. Multiple players can eat from the same cake at the same time.

Trivia[edit]

Interaction[edit]

  • Since cake is only 7/8 blocks wide, it is possible to stand on the edge of a block beneath a cake.
  • Cake will destroy falling blocks if placed under them, similar to a torch.
  • It is possible to place cake on top of cake by placing a cake on the ground, then placing another cake on the side of a block above and to the side of the first cake, similar to placing torches on a chest. Eating the lower cake completely will cause the upper cake to disappear, same as mining out the block of cake it is sitting on.

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • Placing a cake makes the same sound as placing wool.
  • You can place cake on top of a bed, and while sleeping, the cake shows on your screen as if it were on top of your head.
