How to make a cake in Minecraft
To bake a cake in Minecraft, you need three milk buckets, three wheats, two sugars, and one egg. Cakes can’t be eaten from the inventory, but must be placed somewhere. Read here how to get the ingredients, what to do with them, and what the popular pastry is good for in the game.
Everyone likes cake, right? Since Beta 1.2, you don’t have to give up your sweet tooth in Minecraft. The cake in the game looks like a delicious cream cake with red fruits and is a very special food with unique properties. This is how you get the necessary ingredients and become a block confectioner.
How do you make a cake in Minecraft?
The cake recipe in Minecraft includes four ingredients:
These are the 4 ingredients
- 3x milk bucket: Pick up a bucket and right-click on a cow to fill it with milk.
- 3x wheat: Wheat is simply harvested from the ground.
- 2x sugar: Harvest sugar cane and process it at a crafting table. Alternatively, you can also process honey bottles into sugar or capture it from witches.
- 1x egg: Eggs are dropped by chickens and you can simply pick them up.
How to make the cake
Once you have gathered all the ingredients, go to a workbench and fill the top row with the milk buckets, the bottom row with wheat, place the egg in the middle, and the sugar to the left and right of it. Now you can craft the cake. Yummy!
What can you do with your Minecraft cake in game?
Cake cannot be stacked in the inventory in the Java edition. So it doesn’t make sense to produce it in masses. But it does have a special advantage:
Quick food intake
Since you don’t have to hold the cake in your hand, it can be eaten faster than any other food in the game. To do this, place the cake on a block and you can immediately eat a piece by right-clicking it without any additional animation, which fills 2 hunger and 0.4 hunger saturation. The cake will now get smaller and after you have eaten seven pieces, it will disappear.
Cake for the celebratory occasion
Thus, the cake is suitable both as a break meal in the mine shaft and to share with your friends. Should you be looking for a decorative light source or simply celebrate a special occasion, you can also place a candle on a complete and placed cake and light it. The Cave & Cliffs update, for example, would be an occasion to try out the cake recipe!
Successful cake mission
Baking a cake gives you the achievement “The Lie”, which is an allusion to the classic game “Portal”. In Minecraft, however, the cake is by no means a deadly trap, but the fastest way to eat in the game.
