Empty buckets remain in the crafting grid after crafting the cake.

Trading[edit]

Expert-level farmer villagers can sell cake for a single emerald each.

Usage[edit]

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

Each cake has seven "slices"; each use consumes one slice progressing inward from the west. A single slice restores 2 () hunger and 0.4 hunger saturation. Eating all seven slices of a cake restores 14 ( × 7) hunger and 2.8 hunger saturation.

Since eating a cake comes with no animation, cake can be eaten at a rate of one slice per tick. Multiple players can eat from the same cake at the same time. In Java Edition, eating cake makes no sound, unlike other foods.

As a redstone component, when connected to a comparator, a whole cake emits a signal strength of 14. The signal strength decreases two units with each slice.

Pandas[edit]

Some pandas will move toward a dropped cake, to pick up and eat it. Some may not, depending on where you put the cake.

Composting[edit]

Placing a cake into a composter raises the compost level by 1.

Java Edition
1.2.1?When cake is crafted, the empty buckets are now moved to the player's inventory, rather than staying in the crafting grid.

With the advent of major changes in texture storage and architecture, overeaten cakes now display other parts of cakes as well as part of a crop texture.

Overeaten cakes now display a different part of the cake texture than before.
From this version up until 14w08a, overeaten cakes start to draw from the textures next to them on the texture atlas, in much the same way they previously did with terrain.png. However, as texture atlases are unstable and textures tend to change positions as new blocks and textures are added, overeaten cakes change the texture they draw from every time new textures are added, which includes when textures added by mods.

1.7.213w37aThe item form of block ID 92 (cake) has been removed from the game. It no longer exists in inventories, but as a block in the world.

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Cake" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

Interaction[edit]

  • Because cake is only 78 blocks wide, it is possible to stand on the edge of a block beneath a cake.
  • Cake destroys falling blocks if placed under them, similar to a torch.
  • It is possible to place cake on top of another 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 causes the upper cake to disappear, the same as mining out the block of cake it is sitting on.
  • It is also possible to place cakes (or any other block) on top of cakes by sneaking and placing a cake on top of another cake
  • Mobs on top rotate while attempting to move, a pathfinding oversight shared with fences.
  • If cake is placed in a one block deep hole, players can get across the hole without jumping, although a player standing on the cake must jump to get out of the hole.
  • Cake can be used to create a functioning staircase, by placing a cake on each level of a 1 block by 1 block incline. This would be one of the most labor-intensive staircases available, given the requirements to craft a cake, compared to all other possible methods for creating a staircase.

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • Cake was added to Minecraft following the ModDB 2010 Indie of the Year Awards. Notch agreed to add cake to Minecraft if it won, which led to a campaign called "The Quest For Cake". Minecraft won 3 of the 7 awards, including the "Indie of the Year" award.
  • Placing a cake makes the same sound as placing wool.
  • The player 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.
  • The name of the achievement is a reference to the internet meme "The Cake is a Lie", which originated from Valve's game, Portal.
  • On May 17, 2019, for the 10th anniversary of Minecraft, the cake model was changed to display a "10" above it, made of white concrete.
