The cake should be round not a block or maybe it should be a round cake variant and a cake block variant

Haha, cake isnt hard to make as it looks. I got 3 cakes in few hours. All you need is to find 9 iron ore and egg, other things like wheat and sugar isnt hard. Use bone meals to get wheat instantly.
