Cake stands 1/4 lower than a regular block. It has white icing and a red cherry-like topping. It is quite easy to craft for experienced players. It restores per use and has a total amount of seven uses. Cake does not drop when broken. It can only be eaten by clicking on it whilst it is placed. As of Minecraft 1.8, if one places a Redstone Comparator next to cake, one can get up to Redstone PL 14, 2 for each slice. This is used on 1.8 maps and minigames, and trolling on multiplayer with TNT.
Cake is made with an Egg, three Buckets of milk, two Sugar, and three Wheat. If a player eats a cake once, it will appear to be cut into thirds or sixths. Crafting a cake will award one with the achievement "The Lie" (it's usually required to earn the achievement "Time to Farm" first), which is a reference to the game Portal. Various maps have the phrases "Your cake is waiting" and "The cake is a lie".
