Both skills fire cakes at the target location and create cake objects that grant the  Nourishment food.png Cake Shot nourishment (which provides +40 to all attributes, plus Magic Find and Experience buffs), three seconds of swiftness, and Sugar Rush when picked up. This nourishment effect is overridden by any other food consumable and players will not receive any effect if they are already under the effects of another food. The Sugar Rush lasts 30 seconds and prevents the player from picking up other birthday cakes on the ground.
