Cakes in Minecraft are one of the many food items players are able to craft in the base game. They are also perfect for celebrations like birthdays or just as a cool way to refill your food meter. But before you can make a cake, you are going to need to gather up a few resources. That said, if you keep reading we will go over everything you need to know on how to make a cake in Minecraft.
What do you need to make a Cake?
In order to make a cake, you are going to need the following materials listed below.
- 3 Buckets of Milk
- 3 Wheat
- 1 Egg
- 2 Sugar
After you get all of the materials listed above, you will then need to find a crafting table and arrange them in a certain pattern as shown by the picture below. If you don’t have a crafting table already made you can make one with four wood planks as shown in the image above.
However, before you can get to the actual making of the cake you are going to need to know how to get the materials needed to craft it. With that said let’s start with the first ingredient, you are going to need for the cake which is Milk. To get milk in Minecraft you are going to need to get some cows first, and you can find them usually in all biomes except for snowy tundras and wooded badlands plateaus.
In the other biomes In Minecraft, you will find cows spawning in groups of two to threes on grass blocks at a light level of 9, and once you find some you can lure them back with either wheat or a leash. After you get some cows, grab three iron buckets, and right-click on the cow with the bucket equipped. Once you right-click the cow with the bucket in hand you will then get some milk from the cow.
Next, you are going to need some sugar, which can be gathered from either sugar canes or beehives. Starting with the cane method, all you need to do is find some sugar canes which are usually found growing on rivers banks as shown below. When you find the sugar cane plant, walk up and break them.
After doing this, some sugar canes will drop and you will then need to take the canes to a crafting table. Once you are at a crafting table place the canes in the table and then click the sugar icon that will soon pop up. You will then get one sugar per cane you placed in the crafting table.
Now for the honey method, you are going to need to find a beehive in the following biomes; the Plains, Flower Forest, or the Sunflower Forest. You can find the hives sitting on the side of oak and birch trees, and when you find one you are going to need to have a bottle in hand. Once you got a bottle, head towards the tree with the bottle in hand and right-click on the hive when the hive is full of honey.
You can tell if the hive is full of honey if the holes shown below are full of dripping honey, which in the image below they are not. After you get some honey, then head back to a crafting table like with the Sugar canes. When you get to the crafting table place the honey in the table and click on the sugar icon that will pop up, and you will then get 3 sugar per 1 bottle of honey.
The next major ingredient needed to make a cake in Minecraft is Wheat and you get it by planting and growing wheat seeds. To get Wheat seeds you are going to need to find and destroy some grass blocks which can be found usually in any biome.
As shown above, after breaking the grass block it will some times drop the seeds, once you get enough seeds you can then move on to the next part. After getting wheat seeds you will then need to plant them and wait for them to grow or use bonemeal (you can craft bonemeal from bones) to make them grow faster. Once the Wheat is fully grown walk over and right-click it to collect it as shown below.
Now the final ingredient you are going to need is eggs and you can get this from.. well chickens of course! That said, you can find chickens in the same places where cows tend to spawn but instead of only groups of threes chickens can spawn in groups of four.
Then after you get the chickens back safe and sound at your base you will have to then wait five to ten minutes for them to lay eggs. Then once you got all three materials needed for the cakes see the image at the start of the guide and that will be everything you need to know on how to make a cake in Minecraft.
