Once the cake is placed, it cannot be recollected.
Unlike all foods, cake cannot be eaten as an item. Before being eaten, it must first be placed on top of an object.
To eat from a placed cake, right click the cake. Each cake has seven "slices", and each use will consume one slice. Cake restores 18 health points.
Unlike the eating of other foods, eating a slice of cake is instantaneous (an entire cake can be eaten as fast as it can be clicked) and makes no sound. Multiple players can eat from the same cake at the same time.
