How to craft a cake in Minecraft
The easiest way to get a cake is by Collecting the necessary recipe ingredients. The player will first need to start off by making a Crafting Table. Each player starts off with a 2×2 crafting grid located in their inventory however this recipe is much more complicated and requires a 3×3 grid. This is done by opening your inventory box (Pressing ‘E’) and placing 4 Wooden Planks into the 2×2 grid located in the top right corner. You are able to use any type of Wooden Planks like oak, spruce, birch, jungle, acacia, or dark oak. In the example below we are using oak wooden planks.
Once you are done with this step you should see a crafting table appear to the right of the arrow. Right clicking on the item will put your new crafting table into your inventory.
After you have completed the recipe you will need to equip the table to your hand. This is done by dragging the item to the bottom left row of your inventory box. The last step is to place the item on the ground. To do this you will need to find an open area you will like the table placed at then right click to put it on the ground. Doing this will allow you to then click on the crafting table and utilize a 3×3 grid for crafting recipes rather than the default 2×2 from your inventory.
