Cake detail

Cake is a food that players can make with level 40 Cooking and yields 180 experience.

Cake heals up to 333 life points per bite. Each cake is consumed in 3 bites, making a total of 999 life points recovered. This makes cake a poor food choice for Player-killing or Combat; however, it's a good choice for training Thieving or Agility.

When one bite from a cake is consumed, the cake is named 2/3 cake and named Slice of cake after 2 bites. The cake can only be bought, cooked or pickpocketed in its whole form, however 2/3 cake and slice of cake can be bought from the Grand Exchange.

Utensils Cake tin
Ingredients egg, bucket of milk, pot of flour
Range only Yes
To make Cake:
  1. Use egg, bucket of milk and pot of flour > cake tin (becomes uncooked cake)
  2. Cook on a range. (Use uncooked cake > Range.) Will become either a Cake (edible) or a burnt cake.

To make a cake, use an egg, a bucket of milk, and a pot of flour with a cake tin, to make an uncooked cake, then use the uncooked cake on a cooking range. With level 50 cooking, players may then use a chocolate bar on the cake to make chocolate cake. Chocolate dust can also be added to a cooked cake. Failing to cook the cake will result in a burnt cake.

The easiest way for free to play players to make many cakes quickly is to: first clear the inventory, go to Taverley, and pick 28 wheat from the farm in the far south of the town. Next, go to the windmill just north of the field, and go up the stairs, putting the wheat into the hopper. Then go downstairs (the flour bin should be full) and grab the pots that respawn in the mill. If in a hurry, pots can always be bought from the chef just north of the mill. Then, deposit the flour into the bank next to the mill. Repeat this to fill the inventory with flour. Next, with a full inventory of empty buckets (there is one respawning bucket there, but it's best to bring one), head to the cow farm in east Lumbridge. There, fill all of the buckets with milk and deposit them in the bank chest in the training grounds. Afterwards, travel to Fred the Farmer's chicken coop in northern Lumbridge and fill the inventory with eggs. Deposit the eggs in the bank and head to Lumbridge. Next, purchase 7 cake tins from the general store and head the bank just north of the store. From there 7 of each ingredient (pot of flour, bucket of milk, and eggs) can be withdrawn and then make raw cakes. In Lumbridge Castle there is a cooking range, where these cakes can be baked. Deposit all cakes (either sell the burnt cakes for 1 coin, or drop them) and all empty pots/buckets, then repeat.

For members the easiest way to make cakes is to go to a player-owned house with a range, water source, shelves and an oak larder (or up). Everything that's needed can be found in the kitchen, and it's free, and unlimited in supply.


With level 5 Thieving, cakes may be stolen from the bakery stalls in ArdougneKeldagrim and Taverley . However after stealing from the Baker's stalls, players can't buy from or sell to them for some while, or they will call for the guards (unless the player has a vial of stench (a)). Cakes are commonly used in thieving as a cheap alternative to food such as lobsters.

  • As of 06 August 2017, 2/3 of a cake and slice of cake are worth more than the whole cake. This can allow small profit to be made from buying, eating and selling cake on the Grand Exchange.
