Category Battle Royale Items
Introduced Patch 5.10
Last Adjustment Patch 9.41

Cake Slices are a limited-time consumable item in Battle Royale, originally added in the Patch 5.10. They are found throughout the map on the ground near large Birthday Cakes. Cake Slices are not placed in the inventory and can only be consumed by interaction. Cake Slices combine the function of Apples and Mushrooms, granting 5 shield and 5 health, up to 100. On August 8th after the Fortnite 1st Birthday Celebration event ended, Cake Slices along with Cakes were phased out from the map.

Cakes and Cake Slices were reintroduced with the 9.41 Patch Notes to celebrate Fortnite's 2nd Birthday. They were available from July 25 - July 31, 2019. In Season X, the cake slices are once again phased out from the Chapter 1 map.


1st Birthday

The 1st Birthday Cake Slice featured a purple filling, white icing, and cyan colour on the outside, with multiple coloured dots, following the same pattern and design as the big 1st birthday cake props.

2nd Birthday

The 2nd Birthday Cake Slice had a brown filling, with pink outsides and icing, sprinkled with coloured sprinkles, and two candles on the top to represent the game'* second birthday. It followed the pattern as the big 2nd birthday cake props.

3rd Birthday

The 3rd Birthday Cake Slice design was rather confusing, it reused the same design as the 2nd, while the big birthday cake prop had more of a yellow with brown color pattern, while the cake backbling had more of a bright green colouring.

  • This being the most confusing birthday in terms of designs, as all the cake related items, including cosmetics, always followed the same pattern the cake props in the map had-blue, purple and white for the 1st birthday (Birthday Cake backbling, 1st birthday emoticon and spray), pink, brown and purple for the 2nd (Cake slice pickaxe, 2nd birthday emoticon and spray, wrap, music pack artwork, and the STW exclusive Birthday Jonesy backbling). However, the 3rd's followed a rather random and confusing patter that never matches any of its items.
