How to Make a Cake in Minecraft
Cake is one of the fancier foods you’ll find in Minecraft. Cakes were added to the game in Minecraft update 1.2. They are unique in a few ways, once the cake is placed, it cannot be picked up and cannot be eaten as an item in the hotbar. Each cake comes with seven slices which when eaten, consumes the cake from the right. You can barter for cake with villagers for one emerald each. Let’s look at how to make a cake in Minecraft.

Cake can naturally spawn in chests in Buried treasure. Making a cake requires a bit of preparation in terms of items needed. You’ll need milk buckets, sugar, egg and wheat.
Milk buckets can be obtained from cows, mooshrooms, and goats by pressing use while looking at them with an empty bucket. For sugar, you’ll have to find some sugarcane and craft it into sugar. Eggs can be obtained from chicken. A chicken drops an egg every 5–10 minutes. You can grow wheat by planting seeds or harvesting it off village farms.
A single slice restores 2 hunger and 0.4 hunger saturation. Eating all seven slices of a cake restores 14 hunger and 2.8 hunger saturation. They can also be used to lure pandas found in the Jungle, Bamboo Jungle and Sparse Jungle biomes. Adult pandas seek out cake to eat. Surprisingly, cake can also be used as a redstone component. If you connect it to a comparator, an uneaten cake emits a signal strength of 14. The signal strength goes down by two units with each slice eaten. You can place a candle on a cake and light it with flint and steel, fire charge, or any fire starters.
