Breeding process of Pals coming to a halt because of the ‘not enough cake’ error? Here are the possible reasons and fixes.



how to fix not enough cake error in palworld

The “not enough cake” error in Palworld can be frustrating especially if you’re planning to breed quite a few Pals for more powerful offspring. You need Cake for a breeding combination to get you an egg to hatch, but here’s why this error may be occurring even if you’ve placed a Cake there and how to potentially fix it.

Why is the ‘Not Enough Cake’ error Showing Up?

It’s important to note that Palworld is in early access at the time of writing, so random bugs and errors will crop up. However, the developers are releasing patches to fix issues. If it’s a glitch, relaunch the game and check if it resolves itself.

Secondly, check if there really isn’t any Cake in the box, because it’s a crucial part of the breeding process. This is when the error will appear, so the next plan of action is to make Cake, but it needs quite a bit of preparation (more on this below).

How much Cake is needed for Breeding?

Only one cake is needed to complete the breeding process of one pair of Pals.

First, let’s get the most obvious step out of the way – check if you’ve added a cake in the right place – which is to the box that also gets built along with the Breeding Pen. Some players may have mistakenly added it to another box that will not work with the pen, so if that’s the case, keep it in the appropriate box and the error should go away.

If you’ve already placed a Cake in the right place but still getting this error, here’s a suggestion from the community. Pick the Breeding Pen up and put down foundations that are slightly raised from the ground. Then place the Pen on the foundation.

This is to fix a common issue where eggs are falling through the ground and then, the ‘not enough cake’ error is coming up for the next egg after the current one is already out (but it’s stuck somewhere on the ground).

Lastly, if you don’t have a Cake at all, here’s the process the follow to make one.
